"I can't thank you enough for all the hard work that you have put in with Jonny - I am hopeful that his final grade will reflect this. You have been very patient and kind throughout the time that Jonny has been coming to you for 1:1 English lessons and as you already know I have recommended you to other parents for their children."
"Bertie has really enjoyed his sessions with you and it has helped him so much. We are all grateful for all the support you have given both the boys. I know Bertie will be sad to finish with you but also relieved when the exams are over."
"Many thanks for taking the time to see Nick on Sunday, when I know you are so busy sorting out your new house. Anyway, I'm really grateful for all you have done for the boys. You couldn't have done any more for them."
"Rachel - I just want to say thank you for all the support you have given Tim over the last few months. He tells me regularly what a difference you have made. This does not just affect his English, it is his overall confidence (something many think he has a lot of, yet not always) and I can really see the difference, so thank you and hopefully he will perform on the day."
"Thank you so much for everything: firstly, my confidence in English has blossomed and I feel as if I can achieve many things within this subject. However, I feel that the most important aspect of meeting you was that you explained things to me which I would never have known. You have supported me, even when I came across as if I had the weight of the world on my shoulders. Thank you so so much and I am going to miss you incredibly."
"This is to thank you for everything you have done for Angus. Not only have you given him a greater understanding of the English syllabus but you also 'got' Angus in a way few people do. This has greatly boosted his confidence and self esteem and encouraged him to explore and develop the things he is good at. Angus has enjoyed his lessons with you hugely and has told us over and over how glad he is that we found you. So, whatever the outcome in August, we will forever be deeply, truly grateful to you for what you have done for our beloved (if also somewhat maddening!) son."
"Thank you for your email, for your kind words and for offering the boys support over the English Lit exams next week. I have spoken to them about this and will see how they get on this weekend when preparing for the exams. It's really appreciated that you have offered to be at the end of the phone! It only leaves me to say a very heartfelt thank you for all you have done for the boys. You rescued them from drowning in a sea of words and for that we will all always be very grateful. They go into their GCSEs with a confidence and skill that you gave them. Your dedication and commitment is so very much valued and appreciated. I'm sure they will both miss their sessions with you and the biscuits and drink!"
