“As a former undergraduate student at the Islamic College I can say with great privilege that Rebecca was one of my tutors for a number of modules. She as a lecturer has been of great help and support to me, especially when writing my assignments. Not only is she friendly and approachable, she is one tutor who until now has worked diligently to support me with my work.”
“I would also like to note that Rebecca’s lessons were one of the highlights of studying my Degree as she put in extra time, care and precision into the lessons.”
“Thank you very much! Yes I was very happy, especially about English because the exam was quite difficult. Alhamdullilah I nearly got 90 out of 100 in both exams, couldn’t have done it without the amazing English teacher I’ve had.”
