Mar 2021 Thank you for all your patience and perseverance Rachel. He’s a lucky boy, whether or not he’s successful, to have had such a committed and passionate tutor to support and encourage him. It is very much appreciated.

Jun 2020 Thank you Rachel. Your lessons have boosted my son's confidence massively.

Apr 2020 She was so happy 😀 after the session with you today considering how unsure she was with the whole one-to-one thing from the start. Thank you for your dedication to childrens' academics, we will try our best to help her at home.

Apr 2020 I just want to personally thank you for the tremendous work you have done on my daughter, for just this short time she started with you, I have seen her confidence towards her approach to studying maths improve and I do not want to take this for granted. So thank you and keep up the good work.

Apr 2020 Huge thanks. Your tuition is invaluable and xx loves them

Dec 2019 Thank you so much for all your hard work with is very much appreciated and he loves his lessons with you .

Aug 2019 I GOT A 7. Thank you so much I couldn't have done it without you. I know A level maths will be just as rewarding x

Aug 2019 Thank you so much Rachel for all your support and guidance. xx loved coming to yours and learning new tricks in maths.

Aug 2019 Dear Rachel, I hope all is well with you and family. I thought you would like to know that xx got the grades she needed for her Uni course and achieved an A in maths. She was initially a little irritated that she did not get and A* in maths but I think it has now dawned that four A grades is a great result and has secured her course at Imperial. Her sister has done really well too and is off to St Andrews for a course in geography and sustainable development. I know it seems a long time ago but thanks for your help with the maths that helped establish a firm foundation to build on for the girl's A levels. All the best. ​

Oct 2018 I thank you for your help. She is eager to study since started with you.


Aug 2018 xx has finally done it!! I’m so glad. Thank you so much for all your efforts X

Sep 2017 Dear Rachel, xx has been having withdrawal symptoms and is missing coming to your 11+ lessons . She is very eager to learn and challenge herself. I wonder if you have a slot ? This is testament to how much you have helped and influenced her development

Aug 2017 Just got GCSE result for xx. A  Fantastic. He could not have achieved that without your help.


Jul 2017 Thanks again for all your help this academic year, you've made a huge difference to xx, we are very grateful

Jul 2017 I just wanted to say thank you so much for tutoring me these last few years, it's been so helpful and I think I am a much better mathematician because of it! I'm really really grateful, I don't think I could have got through my entrance exams, my GCSEs and now my additional maths without your helpful tips and explanations of things. Best wishes for the future.


Oct 2016  Rachel has been a wonderful tutor and my daughter has achieved in maths what many thought was impossible.

Jan 2016 Hi Rachel, just heard from xx's Mum that xx was really pleased with his session with you on Friday. He really felt that you could help him and his Mum said that you had an immediate impact on his confidence. Thank you so, so much. He apparently can't wait till his next lesson which his Mum is shocked by!! 

Mar 2015 Thank you for working with xx over the last couple of years.  I have seen such a difference in his confidence and his love for maths. I will continue to recommend you to friends and neighbours who are on the lookout for a great maths tutor 

Oct 2012 Thank you. She won’t admit it yet but xx has changed from not enjoying maths to enjoying it which for me is the best thing. Of course the objective is to get her through the entrance exam but either way this change will be good for whatever she does and wherever she does it. You are doing a great job. We’ll keep her doing a bit of work every day where we can.

Mar 2011 I just also want to say thank you for all your help with xx.  It has made a huge difference to her confidence in her abilities in general and kept us focused on nurturing them. 

Aug 2010 Hello Rachel Thanks very much for all your hard work with xx. You made a massive difference and her grade proved that! Thanks very much and if you ever need a reference and/or testimonial let me know - I'll put all my letters behind my name! Thanks again
