“Danielle has helped my daughter improve so much in maths. She’s now fully confident in all topics but also much more confident in herself! Danielle is very patient, kind and makes learning fun whether in a 121 or small group session. My daughter enjoys her sessions and never complains about going. We will be sad to say goodbye when my daughter starts secondary!”
Claire (parent)


“Dani is excellent tutor, understands her student and finds the best way to deliver and tailor her lesson and teaching approach. I cannot sing her praises enough and thank her for how she has built my daughter’s confidence and knowledge in her chosen subjects and successfully passing her 11+ exam.”
Blerina (parent)


“Dani’s English class is thoroughly enjoyed by both my children. Even though English skills 1 is one hour a week they carry on learning the concepts and solidifying their understanding throughout the week with the help of perfectly targeted homework, reading the class book and spelling.  Dani manages extremely well to differentiate between the children and their various abilities by giving extra support to those who need it and stretching those who are more able!! One of the best things is Dani manages to get a good amount of written work done each lesson, allowing the children to practise their learning and grammar, comprehension and spellings!  She is extremely engaging, and the kids love her! She will be a teacher fondly remembered later on in life by both my children.”
(Wajiha, parent)


“Dani helped prepare my daughter for her SATs (which were then cancelled due to Covid-19). Dani then gave her some refresher lessons prior to starting Yr 7 to ensure she felt confident starting the new year. Dani got my daughter to a fantastic level during Yr 6 where my daughter felt confident and able to sit the SATs and she now has started secondary school confident that she knows the Yr 6 topics. She has always enjoyed her sessions with Dani and she seems very knowledgable on all areas. She’s extremely organised, lessons are pre-planned and specially tailored to focus on the areas my daughter needed assistance.”
(Kate, parent)


“Danielle has been an absolutely amazing tutor to both our sons over several years – hugely supportive, utterly engaging, and brilliant at instilling a sense of self-belief. Our sons’ dyslexia made learning certain things difficult but Danielle helped them over the hurdles one by one with patience that knows no bounds! The boys thoroughly enjoyed their time with her and her upbeat, fun approach to classes and often commented on how much more they learnt with Danielle than at school! She went the extra mile time and time again – for which we are enormously grateful.” (Adele, parent)
