“I would really like to tell them how pleased we have been with all of T's lessons.
T has been very lucky to have you over the past few months too, I can’t tell what a difference it’s made...”

“If so just wanted to say many thanks for all the support your agency and tutors have given M, both before and during the school closure.
It has been very challenging at times but so good to see M finally engaging with the support offered.”

R’s patience with our S, kindness and understanding was just incredible.
R has changed S’s life, he has not only been a tutor, but a mentor and friend. He has given S confidence and amazing managing tactics.”
