“Christine has tutored our girl-boy twins for seven months and it has been great to watch her in action, making the children feel extremely comfortable in her presence and engaging them in fun, learning activities in English and Maths. Christine consistently uses enjoyable games as a tool which has helped us as parents to also engage our children with other school work, particularly during lockdown. When making physical visits to our home, Christine has also always been considerate as we’ve juggled competing commitments and balanced birthday parties, etc with tutoring.
As we’ve transitioned to homeschooling during the lockdown, Christine has been incredibly helpful, making herself available for online tuition and honing her skills and those of the children on Zoom and Skype. It’s been brilliant to have her consistent, caring engagement with the children, especially as they now to one-to-one online sessions. We consider Christine to be one of our children’s core teachers.
Christine has been very approachable and friendly from day one, working with us to make education an enjoyable experience for our children even in the most trying of times. It’s been impressive to watch Christine teaching both in the physical space and online and we’d happily recommend Christine, as would our children.”
