Testimonials

Michelle provided excellent support and coaching for our daughter helping her to gain her confidence and to bridge the gap in her English language studies.

The support ranged from normal online lessons, targeted focus on our daughter’s key areas of need to prepare our daughter to re-take her English GCSE.

This paid off immensely with our daughter achieving a grade 5 from her original grade 3.

Thank you Michelle for all you’ve done. We highly recommend Michelle for anyone looking for an excellent online tutor in English.

Michelle has been the most amazing tutor throughout the past year. As a private candidate who was homeschooled for the past year and achieved an A in English Literature, I truly believe Michelle has been an invaluable support in achieving this grade. From guiding me through my coursework to explaining exam technique, Michelle has done all possible from her end to help me achieve this grade. Thank you so much Michelle !

I would definitely recommend Michelle as I have found her assistance in supporting me with my English Literature A Level to be most helpful. For example, she has not only helped with my essay writing skills but also supported me with many other analytical aspects that enabled me to feel much more confident in this subject

Michelle started tutoring my son for GCSE English Literature back in September 2019 as his expected grade at that time was quite low. Michelle demonstrated a very calm and methodical approach to teaching and within a matter of weeks, I could see huge improvements to my son’s understanding of English Literature. She was very supportive and helped him learn key aspects of texts and technique. English Literature is a subject my son was not particularly interested in, but with Michelle’s help, he has learnt to appreciate the subject and show determination on increasing his grade. Unfortunately Fiachra will not be sitting his exam this year due to coronavirus, however the help that Michelle has given him over the last 7 months has been invaluable and I have no hesitation in recommending her to other parents.

Michelle was a great English tutor for my A Level English Literature course, despite not having to take the exam anymore, Michelle instilled great confidence with me and helped me greatly improve my essay writing skills! I definitely went up at least 1 grade- from a B/C to an A. Thank you Michelle!

We are great full with Michelle's help her patience and understanding. My daughter's first A-level mocks was a disaster she got E/U with a U overall. We found Michelle and with her help my daughter's last mock (before her actual exams) which she was sad she didn't get to take, but she got a C/B. All we can say is a big thank you as my daughter had came so far. I would highly recommend Michelle to anybody that needs help with they English lessons.
VIKKI
Parent
Michelle has been a fantastic tutor in the time she has helped me. Everything was explained clearly and in a way I understood (Assessment Objectives, terminology and how to properly breakdown and answer a question) and she was always very kind and supportive so I didn't feel shy or reluctant when asking questions or when asking for feedback. I made a great amount of progress and Michelle was very helpful with planning sessions and regularly updated me on her availability. The sessions were catered to what I needed and we'd break down a question, plan and flesh out answers which helped me greatly in my mocks and classwork.
I'm certain that if exams hadn't been cancelled I would've reached my target come May and so I highly recommend her.

Michelle,

Thanks very much for all your hard work with Max.

Over the last 9 months his confidence and capabilities have clearly developed significantly. He did not even moan about having to do the extra work!!

It is a great shame that he will not now get the satisfaction of sitting the exam with a new found sense of confidence.

Best wishes

Thanks for all your help to get Frazer his B in A Level English Language (improving from a D grade the previous year). The lessons helped to build his confidence,refine his writing style and also answer questions effectively with sufficient depth and technical details. Frazer enjoyed his lessons and really appreciated your caring approach.
SARA
Parent
Michelle quickly established a good rapport with my son and provided great encouragement for his gcse in English Literature. The regular feedback we received was thorough and constructive. Although Michelle lives locally to us, our son chose to switch to online sessions which Michelle planned and organised well and meant we didn't need to juggle another lift amongst our manu other activities! I wouldn't hesistate to recommend Michelle.
ANNE
Parent
Michelle is a fabulous tutor. I have no hesitation in highly recommending her service.
Due to illness my daughter missed a lot of lessons at school so needed help to complete the A-level literature syllabus.
Michelle helped her immensely, not just to cover the course but by giving her the confidence that she could do it, and always with a friendly, approachable manner.
Thank you so much.

Michelle was absolutely fantastic. Her expertise and great teaching personality were extremely helpful in enabling me to achieve a very important piece of work for my university course. I would recommend her to anyone. 10 out of 10 support provided.
ISLA MAE
Student
Skilled, individualised English tuition for GCSE level sons (one of whom was very reluctant at the start). Michelle prepares for their lessons throughly, be it homework they have forwarded to her or just general course skill requirement practice. Great regular feedback to the boys and myself. The boys speak highly of her without prompt.
DAWN
Parent
I studied with Michelle a couple of years ago, I was looking fo a tutor to help me prepare for the English CAE exam. She guided me through the test format with lot of examples and practice for every section. She helped me in building confidence and strenghtening my weak points.
GIANLUIGI
Student
I am extremely pleased with the teaching that my son has received. He has been taught with skill, sensitivity and good humour, taking into account his particular needs. I have been impressed with the detailed written feedback that I received after just three sessions, showing great perception and understanding. In particular, I liked the encouraging comments about his strengths and a very useful, detailed list of ways to improve. I could not have asked for a better tutor. Huge thanks, Michelle. Sue
SUE
Parent
Michelle is a brilliant English tutor. My son only achieved a Grade 3 in his English Language and Literature Mocks. I got in touch with Michelle through First Tutors in January 2018 due to this. She was very organised and structured the lessons well. My son felt very comfortable with her and worked well during her sessions. The results speak for themselves as he achieved a Grade 7 in English Language and a Grade 6 in English Literature. He was delighted with his progress. I'm amazed at such fantastic results in such a short time period. Thank you Michelle.
LORETTA
Parent
Michelle only started tutoring my daughter in the last weeks before her A level English Language exams (Easter 2018) yet she managed to give her a structural and comprehensive understanding of how to approach the dreaded paper 1 - my daughter went from an E (on this paper) in her January mocks to an A* !!! She seems to have found the key to my daughter’s learning in a very short time. I highly and unreservedly recommend her and wish we had found her earlier. Thank you Michelle
FIONA
Parent
As a Chinese student who did GCSE EAL instead of English, Michelle has been very helpful as she has experiences of teaching students in the same situation. She is very good at teaching the gists of exam techniques and she’s been patient and friendly to me. Thank you Michelle!
LILY
Student
Our son came to us in January and told us he was having problems analysing questions in English Language papers. He was therefore struggling to answer the questions, and we realised he was trying hard and wanted to succeed. We engaged the help of Michelle, and Davey saw her once a week up to Easter. The one to one tuition gave him the help he required and also it gave him the confidence to succeed. We did not think he would get English Language first time, but he did. He is delighted and so are we. Whilst we are also grateful to the teachers at his school, I don't think this would have been possible without the extra guidance from Michelle.
JON
Parent
Michelle is a brilliant A Level tutor and we would certainly recommend her. She is a UK qualified teacher, knows her subject well and is up to date with exam board requirements. We wish we had found her earlier, having tried out multiple tutors over the past year with my daughter making little progress. Michelle has assessed work, given feedback, set targets and has worked diligently to improve my daughter's understanding. She often took the initiative to keep me informed. My daughter has been very pleased with Michelle.
HASANAH
Parent
Michelle helped my daughter prepare for her A Level English Literature Exam. She is an excellent teacher who knows the texts and is able to convey concepts clearly to her pupil. She also has very strong supporting skills in helping build confidence. The end result was her getting into her first choice university. Thank you.
CHRIS
Parent
We approached Michelle roughly a couple of months before the A level (English Lit.) exams. She was superb with my son in probing areas for improvement and worked extensively to enrich his exam writing technique. She was extremely good at making him analyse his own work and refine it.The result has been an A* !!. I would very highly recommend Michelle.
SANDEEP
Parent
I would highly recommend Michelle as a tutor , my son found her sessions engaging , fun and supportive but more importantly he looked forward to her weekly lesson and for a young boy with severe dyslexia who struggles with English this was an added bonus . Michelle responded quickly to any questions we had and always kept me updated on progress made and kept me informed on what area of the curriculum she was targeting with him . Through her positive tutoring and support he gained a confidence and had positive attitude going into his GCSE exam

Michelle is a pleasant individual who has always been punctual and reliable. I have no hesitation in recommending her to others. Interesting, well informed, professional… which makes this learning process all the more fun.
CRYSTAL
Parent
We would highly recommend Michelle as a tutor. We approached her around 3 months prior to our daughter's GCSEs. My daughter was a borderline A/B but she really wanted at least an A.

Michelle worked very quickly with our daughter to baseline her current performance and to understand the areas and topics in which she wanted help as well as needed help. Michelle achieved this in discussion with our daughter as well as her own experience. Michelle has a likeable but direct nature which we could see was going to deliver what was needed. Our daughter always left Michelle's lessons enthused and motivated. She enjoyed preparing for them and liked the way Michelle allowed her freedom to speed up or pause on certain topics as needed. Our daughter felt she always derived the maximum benefit out of each lesson. As well as technique Michelle also boosted our daughter's self belief through praise and encouragement. We feel no matter what grade she now gets it will be her best. And that's all anyone can ask for.

Overall, a very effective tutor and would use her again if the opportunity arose.
GITA
Parent
Michelle has been assisting my son with his English GCSEs, just completed this summer. When I first made contact with Michelle, she was very quick to respond and set up our initial meeting. I had reservations about persuading my teenage son to engage in extra tuition sessions on top of school,but, after reassurance from Michelle, and 2 visits later, he was more accepting and willing to go. Michelle did some initial assessments, and then provided a revision plan covering all elements of the curriculum in Language and Literature. She quickly identified areas of weakness, and each week would produce extracts to examine, break down, analyse, and compare… working through writers techniques and use of vocabulary. Michelle developed my son's understanding and improved his confidence and writing skills.

Michelle has been a wonderful tutor, who is professional at all times. She replied promptly to emails, and text, and was always available to answer any queries. Her calm and soft approach made my son feel comfortable in her company and over the weeks we built up a good rapport. My son undertook his exams with more confidence and we were both impressed by Michelle's professionalism and knowledge. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michelle for some excellent additional support in this subject. Thank you Michelle for everything and we will update you with the outcome!
KAREN

JULIE

Michelle has been so patient and has worked wonders with my son. He will always have significant difficulties with English but she has worked tirelessly to get him ready for the exam. I can really recommend Michelle as she helps set them up for the exam, helps with confidence and provides invaluable expertise in her area.
CLAIRE
Parent
Michelle has taught my two boys since September 2016. She has given them both confidence with English which they did not have before coming to Michelle. Michelle has spent time and focused on their skills and abilities. They have enjoyed going to their sessions. Michelle has always been contactable and helpful when they have needed extra sessions or help.
Thank you Michelle for giving my boys the confidence they now have with English. I would recommend Michelle.

Michelle has done a superb job of tutoring our daughter for GCSE English. She helped her truly understand the syllabus, whilst improving her exam technique -- a skill which has transferred well to other subjects.

Most importantly Michelle has helped her feel much more confident and relaxed in the run up to her exams.

JULIA
Parent
Michelle has provided my son with structure and gives clear instruction on the tasks. Repeating a task if no grasped initially until it has been understood, ensuring a good foundation to build on. Michelle is very organised and a lot is achieved in a session. Michelle gives praise when deserved and boosts confidence.
JENNY
Parent
My daughter seems very happy with Michelle s style of tuition and is always positive after her lesson. Michelle responded very quickly to the request and so the first lesson could be arranged very quickly
RACHEL
Parent
Michelle seems very calm and encouraging. Ideal for my daughter who has little confidence in English. Michelle has been very flexible with her teaching time to suit us as we home-school and have other commitments throughout the day and evenings. We hope this will be a long-term arrangement and my daughter and Michelle will form a good working relationship as it is early days.
BEVERLEY
Parent
The feedback I saw on Michelles profile before nominating her to be my sons tutor was excellent and she certainly meets all of those requirements and more. I cannot praise her enough for helping my son. Since my son started taking lessons he has become more confident in his approach to both English language and English literature. Michelle assesses her students very well and ensures they are competent in whatever work she goes through with them. Gives excellent feedback to both student and parent and always plans ahead for several weeks. Many thanks for all the hard work. My son has his GCSE's next year and with Michelles help I hope he achieves great results.
CHRIS
Parent
My son, who is eighteen and studying for a-levels has had two lessons so far with Michelle. Her communication with me has been prompt, clear and she has given me a very thorough learning plan for him. So far we are very happy.
HAYLEY

He achieved GCSE good passes in both subjects.

SHERIN
Student
I have Michelle for a fortnightly 2 hour session to work on A2 English Literature and Language B for AQA.

She prepares well for our sessions and tailors them exactly to my needs. She has also picked up on areas I didn't know needed improvement such as basic grammar when writing essays. Furthermore, she uses her own time to find mark schemes, examiners reports and to mark essays she sets me as 'homework'.

Overall, she has been an invaluable help and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of an EXCELLENT English tutor.
