My lessons with Nina are very good, if I need help she helps straight away. I feel as though I have improved in English and Nina is very encouraging. I like going, she's a lovely teacher.
I enjoy going to Nina. I always used to feel down at school during maths but Nina makes it fun and is helping me to work it out. She is kind and helpful and is very generous with biscuits! Thank you Nina for all your wonderful help.
Both my children attend a session a week with Nina for English and maths.They enjoy going and always come out happy. Nina has helped Noah build his confidence in English; his spelling and written work have improved. He finds work at school easier all round and I'm sure this is down to Nina's hard work and help. Chloe has always struggled with maths and school doesn't seem to support her. Since going to Nina her times tables have improved and she has more confidence. I'm sure she will continue to improve with Nina’s help. I can highly recommend Nina for any child struggling with maths or English. We are very glad we've found her and give heartfelt thanks for all her hard work preparing lessons, being flexible and generally being very accommodating.
Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all your help and dedication over the last few years. It has been so much appreciated. Great news is that Daisy has passed the entrance exam to Prior Park and also won the drama scholarship so she (and we) are thrilled

With Nina -
It was a pleasure to teach psychology A level alongside Nina for ten years.
She has always striven to go the extra mile for each and every student. Her considerable knowledge gained from working as an AQA examiner proved invaluable.

My son and daughter both enjoyed their lessons with Nina, and didn't see the time
as 'extra tuition' -
I really enjoy coming here. Nina always explains it so you can understand easily.

Not only were Nina’s lessons really helpful, but Tamsin enjoyed them! Nina has genuine
empathy with young people, and a manner that Tamsin responded to really well. She
is calm & kind & didn't "talk down" to Tamsin but treated her like an intelligent
individual. This style brought out the best in my daughter & enabled her to get
the most out of the lessons. If only all teachers could be like Nina -
