Her understanding of language development, communication and the importance of child-led learning through play has heavily influenced her style of tutoring.
“Lindsey helped our son with English for 7+ entry exams at few academic selecting schools in Dulwich. We’re grateful that he got offers from all the schools he sat for assessments. Lindsey is a very dedicated tutor and her teaching style is very engaging, fun, and tailored to our son’s needs. She provided us feedback about our son’s progression and how we could possibly assist him at home. She is an excellent tutor and our son likes her a lot. We have no hesitation to recommend her to all other parents.”
“Lindsey has been tutoring my 10 year old daughter for 6 months and I am really pleased with how things are going. My daughter has definitely grown in confidence about her maths and Lindsey does a good job of keeping the lessons fun as well as focused.”
“Lindsey has been a very important part of our daughter’s education at a key point in her final year at junior school. Despite having reservations before she met Lindsey, our daughter immediately took to her and has since been very enthusiastic to continue after school tuition. Lindsey has demonstrated an ability to explain to our daughter certain problems/ideas that she was struggling to understand, which in turn has given her the confidence to attack new challenges and not to have a block on learning areas of a subject. Lindsey has instilled in our daughter a level of confidence and enthusiasm that the school, despite its deserved good reputation, has been unable to achieve. Learning can be interesting and enjoyable and Lindsey has been very good at demonstrating this and bringing out the best in our daughter with respect to the core subjects of Maths and English.”
