Debbie: Caroline has been an amazing tutor to our son who is studying A level physics. She is patient and calm in her approach and provides clear explanations of any new material that is covered. She encourages him that he is making progress and works through difficult questions in a collaborative fashion. The class recordings, whiteboards and homework are sent through immediately following each lesson. I have no hesitation in recommending Caroline as an excellent tutor.
