"Samantha is flexible and helpful. Thank you. " GCSE English Lang and Lit student Mustafa
" I just want to say thank you. You are so helpful!" Grace Year 7 student
I am so grateful to have lessons with Samantha. During her lesson, I’m able to see my flaws in English and to improve them thanks to her comments about my speaking and writing. Specifically, linear use of vocabulary (lexical resources), grammatical errors, collocations, prepositions and discourse markers. One of the best features about her lessons is that she is always ready to teach and give helpful guidance as much as she can. The classes with her are really joyful. She compliments strong points that I have while corrects essential mistakes and gives helpful advice. She is really kind, helpful and generous. Thank you for her support, I will do my best to reach my goals. Student, June IELTS student
