« I requested Sophie’s help to tutor my twins a few months prior to their English GCSEs concentrating on English Literature which was a very demanding subject. My children have different levels of confidence and Sophie was very astute and quick to adjust her teaching methods accordingly and address their individual needs even though tutoring them together. Sophie went above and beyond by always offering to be on the other end of the phone if they had any concerns or additional questions leading up to their exams. Always punctual and willing to do extra sessions at short notice, a sunny nature and understanding of the stress and anxiety associated with exam time, she definitely has the human touch! Both my children did extremely well with their GCSE results achieving a 9 and an 8! I would highly recommend Sophie for both her teaching methods and caring nature. Good luck in Australia! »
