Our son hurtled downstairs in high excitement at past 10pm.‘Mum, Dad! I’ve just read my first ever book!’ he cried.Gemma, his tutor, had given him the book just that day. We had read a chapter with him at bedtime. Amazingly, he had then read the entire book (80 odd pages) to himself, in bed. As he finally went up to bed he said: ‘Thanks, Mum!’. I asked: ‘what for?’ and he said: ‘for Gemma’.Our son is almost 10 years old and his school has not been the best experience and left him feeling ‘stupid’ and ‘slow’. Gemma has left him feeling anything but and he really looks forward to seeing her.We will all – always – remember ‘his first book’ and the feeling of accomplishment he has finally achieved.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Please note with such excellent pass rates some of our tutors are fully booked, however most operate a waiting list and even if we are unable to find you a tutor straight away there, maybe opportunity for online support or cancellation appointments until a regular slot becomes available.
