I first encountered Isobel when I attended her 11+ preparation course for parents. I was so impressed that I booked my son onto her summer holiday tutoring course and I cannot recommend her, and the courses, highly enough. My 10 year old son is the most reluctant student you will find and when I finally told him (the night before) that I had signed him up for a week of intensive English training he thought his world had ended! Over the week he went from reluctant student to one who couldn’t wait to go and, each day when I collected him, he was eager to show me what he had done during that day’s session and was proud of his work. Him enjoying the course was a huge relief but more importantly we have noticed a big improvement from him in terms of how he approaches his work, the effort he puts in and, thankfully, there has been an improvement in the marks he is getting. When I mentioned to him that he would be doing some more sessions with Isobel over the October half term there was none of the usual reluctance we get when we mention the dreaded study word and he’s excited to go back, this time taking some friends with him who signed up following my, and his, recommendation.
