Testimonials from our parents about Nicola

“Nicky is a wonderful tutor to all of my children, who are in Year 8, Year 6 and Year 5. She has supported their learning needs for two years now, and the results are obvious. Thank you very much!”

“Nicola has been wonderful with both my sons, who are currently in Year 4 and Year 5. She has been seeing my Year 5 son for about a year now, and his confidence has increased hugely. Concepts that he previously found tricky, he now understands. He is also motivated to learn and not give up. My Year 4 son has only really just started with Nicola, but she has gently challenged him and quickly found where he struggles. She has offered guidance and support, and already he is improving and crucially, gaining confidence. Thank you!”
