Miss Pugh’s Profile on First Tutor’s

“Sarah has been absolutely fantastic with my son who recently failed his gcse maths. Maths was not his favourite subject but since Sarah came on board what a difference! My son has recently re taken his maths exam. His preparation has been done with care and his confidence level is so much higher with a deeper understanding of the subject. Sarah keeps motivation high with well prepared sessions and structured work allocated each week for own learning. This is always reviewed and marked at the beginning of each session. Thank you so much Sarah!” Parent of year 12 student, November 2017

“Thank you so much for helping me achieve my C grade in Maths, without you I wouldn’t know how I would be able to pass. The lessons have been intense, and hard for me, as I have had to do my other A levels alongside with my GCSE Maths, but overall it was worth the push and work we did in our lessons. You are a brilliant teacher. Thank you again for teaching me.” Year 13 student.

“Sarah’s online tutorials have been a great option for my daughter. She is calm and patient, and she zeroes in on where the gaps in understanding are. Sarah sets homework every time, which allows my daughter to really dig in and practice the skills. I would not hesitate to recommend her.” Parent of year 8 student.

“Sarah is a lovely person, very calm and organised. Took me in on short notice and she made sure we had covered all the important modules that were predicted to come up. I would highly recommend Sarah as a tutor.” Adult learner wanting to start a degree in nursing.

“Sarah was a fantastic tutor for our daughter who helped give her so much more confidence in Maths.
I was a bit doubtful initially with it being on skype but have to say there was never a problem.
Sarah was always there for Daniella. She gave Daniella homework and always marked it, and went through the ones she struggled with together in the next lesson.
Our daughter received her GCSE results yesterday and with the help from Sarah, she passed!
I would highly recommend Sarah and will call upon her again with our next daughter.” Parent of year 11 student.

“My daughter is in Year 11 and has been receiving tutoring for her GCSE’s from Sarah over the last 3 months. My daughter has benefited from Sarah’s approach. She doesn’t rush through the topics, but takes the time to go at a slower pace for my daughter to understand how to resolve a maths problem.On the last set of mock exams that were done in February 2017 she has gone from a ‘C’ grade to an ‘A’ grade. Thank you Sarah for all you help and encouragement.” Parent of year 11 student, Newcastle under Lyme. May 2017.

“Haaris is very pleased with the online lessons so far, he appreciates the fact that no time gets wasted in travelling especially with his exams coming up around the corner. Sarah explains maths in a very systematic manner and makes sure Haaris keeps his thinking cap on throughout the lesson. He stays thoroughly engaged during the lesson and is always keen to attend the next one because he knows how much he is going to learn from Sarah. We truly hope he gets a good grade in his GCSE and it’ll be all down to Sarah! Highly recommended.” Parent of year 11 student, Manchester. April 2017

Thank you so much Sarah”. Year 8 student, February 2017.

“Sarah helped me find my confidence with Maths again after having left secondary school over 10 years ago. My lessons with her were well thought out and specific to my needs and learning style. Being a mature student she made me feel comfortable and confident. The support she gave me was around the clock; I was able to access her maths website and continue with my learning whilst being monitored by her. I found her resources on her website very helpful and along with her lessons it built my confidence up again. I would strongly recommend Sarah to any adult learner who is seeking help for numeracy papers for entry into a career within the NHS.” Hannah, (Adult Learner) February 2017.

“My daughter has struggled consistently with Math from an early age and we had been told she probably has a form of dyscalculia. Sarah is really turning things around for her – Megan is starting to understand and actually enjoy Math for the first time. Sarah is hugely supportive and puts her students at ease immediately. Megan is now gaining confidence with each session and is starting to believe- for the first time – that she will actually be able to pass her IGCSE Math next year!” – Helen (Parent), based in France, October 2016

“Miss Pugh has a calm, professional approach and has given Gareth the confidence to answer questions that he previously would not have wanted to even try to answer. She explains things clearly and has made him start to enjoy maths rather than find it a difficult challenge like he did before. He has certainly improved a huge amount and has moved up a set since she started to help. A fantastic teacher!” Anna (Parent, based in Shropshire, September 2016

“Sarah has recently started to tutor my 9 year old son. Its fair to say that Maths is not his favourite subject, however Sarah has managed to engage with him and make it fun. I can see that his confidence and ability in the subject has improved since he has been tutored by Sarah. Now he is much more willing to take on maths questions whereas previously he would have struggled or have been quick to give up!” – James (Parent), based in Shropshire, July 2016
