From the outset Isobel hit the mark. Utterly unflappable, systematic, well paced and yet flexible and warm. Isobel has a deft hand with both the reluctant student and the anxious parent. She knows how and when to make class fun. And she isn’t afraid to highlight disappointing work when her pupils fail to try their best. She was always transparent and a strong communicator.
As a working parent I found Isobel a godsend. She went above and beyond to work around our commitments and enable tutoring when I wasn’t available. I always felt we were getting value for money, with someone who’s priority was equipping our son for success, rather than earning a salary. Isobel’s style is relaxed, nurturing and effective. She quickly deciphers her pupils and taps into what makes them tick, whilst building skills and confidence, particularly where a child is weakest.
Over the course of the early weeks Isobel recommended several schools that she thought would appeal to our son and our values. She hit the nail on the head with one of her recommendations becoming our first choice. With Isobel’s support and dedication our son achieved his goal and had the luxury of turning down a number of other offers. We will definitely bring repeat business with our second child when his turn comes.
