What the parents have said:

Wow! Thank you so much for yesterday; Josh was inspired 🙌 I have to admit to reading some of your reviews prior to contacting you and I believe one said that you made science 'fun and accessible.' Josh had admitted to me just before going in to see you that you'd have to be pretty amazing to make science fun and you certainly proved to him that you are - and could! 😉
Again, thank you so much; we are incredibly grateful that you have found a space for Josh.

Vicky Hiorns was a pleasure to work with. Vicky had the ability to engage my daughter’s attention throughout her lessons, which were delivered with a positive, friendly and structured approach. I thought the lessons were very productive and my daughter’s confidence in Science improved. My daughter really enjoyed working with Vicky. She genuinely looked forward to her lessons and her contribution has been invaluable.

Vicky tutored my daughter in GCSE maths, which I’m pleased to say she passed this year!
My daughter was not a great fan of maths, but Vicky made lessons fun and interesting, creating a good rapport; she did, however, always expect my daughter to work hard and maximise her potential.
Vicky was always punctual and came well prepared for the lesson, and her upbeat, positive attitude was a great influence.
I am happy to recommend Vicky, and have considered her excellent value for money over the five terms that she has tutored my daughter.

My son saw Vicky once a week for a couple of months before sitting his maths GCSE. Vicky's support was invaluable as he was able to go over areas that he found tricky at his own speed. There were several times when Will said something just 'clicked' where it just hadn't done at school, because it had been approached or explained in a slightly different way. He was using a good range of resources, including past papers and PC-based programmes, and was supported at home via email. Will hit it off with Vicky straight away which was a big help: she is fun and approachable and he actually enjoyed going to see her! His confidence grew immensely during his me there. I would thoroughly recommend Vicky and to us, it was definitely money well spent! Helen Gilbert

Our son’s tutoring sessions with Vicky have increased both his confidence & his results. Vicky has tailored his sessions using the revision guidance issued by his school, which has meant that his science consolidation has been both bespoke & well targeted. In a year during which he has experienced a large amount of cover teaching in the science subjects at school, his sessions with Vicky have been particularly invaluable. Her easy manner with teenagers ensures that they get the most out of every session. We plan to use her services all the way through to GCSEs. K.A.

I want to start by saying thank you to Vicky. She not only dedicates all her efforts and energy into teaching my son but in such a fun interactive way. Jay enjoys his sessions with Vicky, as she makes it interesting. Jay does Science and Maths sessions and currently working at a year 7 level. Jays understanding since being with Vicky has come on leaps and bounds. We couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you again. (Parent of a home-educated student).

What the students have said:

When Vicky was my Maths Tutor I was able to keep my concentration for the whole hour because her lessons were fun and engaging.
She was able to see what areas I struggled with and help me to work through problems until I understood. She would explain things in a different way if I didn’t at first understand.
Vicky’s energy helped to keep me positive, even when I was getting nervous and anxious about my exams, and boosted my confidence, and I got my GCSE.

Vicky has helped my with my higher maths GCSE and it has boosted my confidence within the subject. She explained new methods to solve equations that previously I didn’st understand and all of the lessons have been brilliant. I would highly recommend Vicky as a tutor due to how much she has helped me and I believe that anyone who is looking for a tutor should definitely give her a try.

She was very helpful and easy to talk to. It was easy to understand and grasp concepts of each topic we worked on together. I would highly recommend to other pupils struggling.
