“ Adrienne is a great tutor. With her help and guidance, I managed to get an A for my Higher English. I understood all aspects of the course really well because she explained everything so clearly and made it seem easy. I do not think I would have managed to get such a good grade without her help. Thanks, Adrienne! ”

“ Having battled with English due to dyslexia for some time, we have seen a massive transformation in our son’s confidence and ability since working with Adrienne. She has transformed him from getting a D in his Nat 5 prelim to achieving an amazing A in the final exam. He is now looking forward to achieving his Higher English qualification. She clearly knows her stuff and connects well with her pupils and this shows in the results. I cannot recommend her highly enough. ”

“ Adrienne built my confidence greatly in English, even though I am dyslexic. She taught me how to do essay plans and helped me improve my close reading. She identified areas I struggled with and focused on improving each of these areas. If it wasn't for Adrienne's genuine care and attention to detail, I would not have passed my Higher English exam. ”

“ You are a wonderful tutor and it is entirely down to your tuition and the way you were able to turn Jock's attitude around and make him work so hard that he went from an expected D grade (at best) to achieving a good B. This was a fantastic result especially because he struggled with dyslexia. Your calm, warm approach along with your experience enabled Jock to get the best possible result. Well done to both of you and you will be glad to know that on this basis he has secured a place at his preferred university. ”

“ Desde que llegué a Edimburgo he tenido varios profesores pero cuando realmente empecé a mejorar mi inglés fue con Adrienne. Durante estos 6 meses mis necesidades han variado mucho y Adrienne se amoldó a lo que necesitaba, empezando por mejorar mi pronunciación o ampliar mi vocabulario hasta realización de currículos o práctica para entrevistas de trabajo. Sin duda es una profesora que recomendaría, como ya lo he hecho a mis amigos. ”

“ Since I arrived to Edinburgh I have had several teachers, but when I really started improving my English it was with Adrienne. During this 6 months with her, my needs have varied a lot but Adrienne has adapted to what I needed. We started with improving my pronunciation to increasing my vocabulary and learning how a CV has to be written and interview role plays. Undoubtedly I would highly recommend her, as I did to my friends. ”

“ From the first conversation I had with Adrienne I knew she was the right choice of tutor for my son, Ethan. Her friendly, patient, fun teaching style has meant my son feels confident and happy in her company. He looks forward to spending time with Adrienne, for me that speaks volumes. Within a matter of a few sessions his teacher saw progress in his reading and spelling, which is just fantastic. We would highly recommend Adrienne. ”
