Pauline is highly effective and organised, but she also had such a personable way of being with our children.
We chose Pauline to tutor our daughter because of her professional approach. Our daughter's was due to sit her SAT's and didn't pass the 11+, so we were concerned.
Pauline not only tutored our daughter, but with the coaching skills she possesses, she also was able to help to improve our daughter's confidence. The child that started out with Pauline in the September was very different to the child who completed and passed her SAT's in May
Our daughter's year six teacher at the time asked if our daughter was being tutored, we hesitantly said yes. Her response was, "Well, it's working, so keep doing it."
Our daughter passed her SAT's, was given an award of the highest accolade when she finished year six and her teacher said the turn around was phenomenal, she was the most improved student of her year.
Pauline then tutored our son for the 11+. We gave her a challenge, as she had from May to August to prepare him.
We were extremely impressed with both Pauline and our son. They worked to a tight deadline, but Pauline was very clear from the outset of the workload that would be involved and the dedication necessary on our son's part. Over the months, our son thoroughly enjoyed his tutoring sessions and Pauline was professional, dedicated (we moved house and Pauline came to our new house, which was further away) and fun.
Our son sat the 11+, passed the examination and will be attending Grammar school in September.
We as a family want to thank Pauline, because she didn't just tutor our children. Pauline considered who our children were, worked out how to get the best out of them and was committed to achieving the goal.
We can't thank Pauline enough as a family.
