SSAT | Wentworth Tutors Private Tutoring
"The first session went very well. [My son] liked [the tutor’s] style and is keen to have her return."
ISEE | Caitlin Rea
"You have captured our imagination with your methods ; I have to confess this was very much an eye opener for me, so much so that I have been inspired to learn more about what [student] knows and doesn't, how he copes and how you go about it.- From parent " ... See Caitlin Rea's tutoring profile.
ISEE Lower Level | Catriona Ramsay
"Catriona Ramsay is a fabulous tutor -- we've never engaged one before and I must say we are very pleased to know such a competent, conscientious and brilliant professional. Catriona 'got' [our daughter] immediately and understands what [she] likes and dislikes. She knows how to negotiate working on the subjects [she] is less keen on (i.e. maths) and devises creatives ways to make learning these topics more fun. Catriona has advised us on various aspects of the ISEE test for which I am very grateful as this is our first experience of taking an exam for an American primary school. Her knowledgable comments and calm demeanor have been very reassuring these past months! [Our daughter] looks forward to her sessions with Catriona and respects her highly. The tutorials are always very lively with lots of ideas sparking interesting conversations." ... See Catriona Ramsay's tutoring profile.
