“We have found Flora to be a fantastic tutor. She challenges my son at the top level and is very knowledgable about the 7+. She advises on right exam strategies which is very useful. She is also very friendly and knows how to talk to children.”
“I asked Mentor to help me find someone to prepare my 6 year old for his 7+. As a teacher myself I recognise how hard it can be to ensure genuine engagement after a long day at school and attending after school clubs. Flora has been simply wonderful. She is punctual and good at communicating with me as well as being flexible regarding holidays. Most importantly, she is just lovely with my son. Flora thinks of creative and authentic ways to explain concepts and maintains a good balance between proving support and challenge to keep him interested and enjoying the learning process. She is both intelligent and professional. What particularly suits our family is that Flora is also kind and appropriately gentle with my boy. I would wholeheartedly recommend her as a tutor for this age-group. Thank you for helping me find the right person for the role so quickly.”
“Flora is an outstanding and empathetic tutor. Our son, seems to be rather talented at maths but struggles with literacy and reading and she deals with him spectacularly well. She is very flexible about the format and creative at dealing with his attempts to avoid specific tasks. She has mastered pedagogy and knows all the tricks for wrangling 6 year olds.”
