‘Our daughter, in Year 11 about to do her GCSE’s, has benefitted from Michelle’s tutorials in Maths for over a year. She actually looked forward to her coming because she was so pleasant and supportive of her.
She has made a real difference to my daughter’s outlook and confidence. Just wished we found her a year earlier.’
