"I just wanted to drop you a message to say thank you very much for finding a tutor for us at such short notice. Valeryia has been excellent and has been a fantastic support for our son. He has grown in confidence as a result of his sessions with Valeryia and he has found her very easy to work with. She created a personal tutor plan for Stan so that he could focus on his weak areas but she also prepared some revision for him which he found very helpful. I'd recommend Valeryia to anyone looking for a maths tutor that can provide a very personalised plan and is dedicated to meeting the needs of her students."
