I'd like to recommend a tutor, Betsy Rowlands. We came to her (through recommendations on this site) to get some help for our 9yo daughter who has always struggled with maths (Betsy also does literacy / English). For us it was about moving our daughter from being behind and feeling unhappy in class to feeling comfortable, relaxed and able to keep up with the rest of the class. Already after just over six months I would say she has achieved this. Our daughter is doing much better in lessons and in tests and her teacher has, unprompted, commented on her significant improvements.
Our daughter gets on very well with Betsy and is very fond of her. She was happy in the one-on-one sessions and, when Betsy felt the time was right, she matched her with another child and it felt like a very good fit. I think Betsy's methods of getting the children to a point where they can explain the maths principles to one another, rather than just being able to 'do' the sum, work very well and are a major contribution to the success of the sessions.
I can definitely recommend Betsy too!
Our Year 5 daughter was not enjoying maths anymore and her decidedly average performance (particularly with times tables) was impacting on her self-confidence...
Recommended to us, over the past few months she has turned the situation around, made maths fun again with her ability to run well-organised sessions in a relaxed atmosphere, whilst still challenging our daughter to progress, to the point where she now really enjoys maths and performs a lot better, which has given her a massive confidence boost!
Betsy also suggested our daughter could share her sessions with another student of similar ability, which has worked out really well as the 2 girls seem to get on well and spur each other on, proving positive for their improvement and financially interesting too, as our weekly sessions now work out cheaper! Thanks, Betsy! 😉
Me to, highly recommend- Betsy.
A year ago , Betsy coached my daughter with her writing. When she started she was behind. She is now performing at a standard thatís above expected for her age. Aside from that she enjoyed the sessions and they definitely gave her more confidence with her writing. Iíd recommend her to other people looking for some support with their childís writing.
