Testimonials

"Our daughter felt very comfortable with Rowena who was so helpful and encouraging during their sessions and always came away feeling so positive and highly motivated. She felt that she had absorbed so much more in the short time she was with Rowena and so much more confident in taking her English Language and Literature GCSEs.
I highly recommend Rowena who has a calming and friendly disposition which helps dispel any uncertainty a pupil has and this is is certainly the case with our daughter. Thank you so much."

"Thank you so much for your fantastic English tuition with my son for the past few months. Exams next week!

He has grown hugely in confidence since having extra lessons. He loves your patience, clarity and encouragement.
 

We would love to come back to you in a year or so with his younger brother. Huge thanks Rowena."

Parent of Primary English student

"Rowena has been tutoring my son (year 10 GCSE English) for the past few weeks. In his words ‘Rowena knows her stuff, makes the sessions relevant to me and I would recommend her to my friends’ .

High praise indeed!

Thank you Rowena. ."

"My son was very happy and complimentary for his first session with Rowena. She was very calm and seemed to immediately get on with him and to get an enthusiastic response straight away."

Nathan

Parent of GCSE Study Skills student

"My daughter has been tutored by Rowena since she was in year 4. She was in the bottom set in Maths, she lacked confidence and was not progressing. My daughter is now in year 6, and is in the top set and has successfully passed her entrance exams for year 7. Rowena was able to build her confidence and develop her skills in maths. Her success is due to her hard work and Rowena's ability to help her fulfil her potential. I would thoroughly recommend Rowena."

Barbara

Parent of Primary Maths student

"Rowena tutors our boys aged 10 and 11 in English and Maths three times a week, with a view to getting them through Common Entrance (they are currently being home schooled for a year or two). They both very much enjoy her lessons and are making very good progress with her. I highly recommend Rowena as a tutor."

Erica

Parent of Secondary English students

"Rowena was excellent in dealing with our rather urgent situation and her help tutoring for the 11 plus was invaluable. She was thorough and informed, gave good feedback to me after a session with my daughter and was a calming influence for her."

Genny

Parent of Entrance Exam student

"My daughter has gained more confidence in her abilities as a result of 5 1hr sessions with Rowena. She always left Rowena in the highest of spirits. This has reduced her fear of arithmetic and now is more willing to work at the subject and even enjoy it maths, which will equip her in the new school year. I would recommend Rowena highly."

Andrew

Parent of Primary Maths student

"Rowena has been tutoring my 15 year old son for the last few months. She has been doing an excellent job in developing his English skills so that he can not only improve in English but also in other subjects like Drama. She undertakes a full assessment with the student at the start to identify where they may need most support and she also likes to look at work that they have been doing at school, as well as setting them specific homework to complete for her. My son is more of a Maths student than an English student but he enjoys his lessons with Rowena and that says it all. Thank you Rowena."

Penny

Parent of GCSE English student

"Rowena has been tutoring my daughter on KS1&2 maths for about 3 months now.
I have seen a marked improvement in my daughters understanding and ability, and importantly also in her confidence.
She is now much happier and able to take part properly in her lessons at school and feel confident that she is not 'stupid' or 'unable to do maths'.
I have Rowena to thank for this change. She has fostered a great relationship with my daughter, who looks forward to the lessons. Thanks Rowena."

Jon

Parent of Primary Maths student

"My seventeen year old son is really enjoying working with Rowena. She is helping him to improve his essay writing techniques for his upcoming English A Level exam. She has a calm, friendly manner and I would not hesitate to recommend her as a tutor."

Anne

Parent of A Level English student

"This is working well and my son is highly motivated after each session. He can see the ease with which he picks up knowledge that he had missed in the lesson and how this will help him."

Les

Parent of GCSE student

"Rowena is prompt, reliable and knowledgeable on the subject. My son although quite reluctant to have a tutor has found her to be understanding and encouraging and I'm sure she will be a great help to my son in his GCSE studies in the future."
