Testimonals The tuition is pitched perfectly for my daughter’s needs and effortlessly adapted when required.  She has improved her confidence and realises that maths is fun as well as clever.  Helen, parent

The maths tuition is brilliant, Dawn has given my daughter a whole new confidence in maths. She enjoys the lessons – which I never thought possible!  Helen, parent

Dawn enabled me to pass my QTS Numeracy test by coming up with easy ways for me to remember things and teaching me quick new methods for mental maths that I was never taught at school. Dawn was able to explain things in a much simpler way than the revision books could. She constantly reassured me, and had confidence in me that I would pass first time, which I did!  Emma, PGCE student

Dawn has been tutoring me for my Numeracy QTS Skills test, which I passed first time. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone who wants extra support in maths and, like me, the Numeracy QTS Skills test. Dawn has taught me many different techniques and increased my confidence in answering mental arithmetic questions.  Thank you so much for your support! Rebecca Croft, PGCE student
