We have only had my son’s initial assessment but Caren was warm, friendly and patient and quickly put my son at ease. He is looking forward to working with her during the term.

Jacquiline is an excellent tutor who quickly developed a good rapport with Lachlan. Lachlan is always keen to attend his tutor sessions and his understanding of key concepts has improved a lot with her help, as have his grades at school. We couldn't recommend her more highly.

I received some positive results from each session that Sherry has made progress on vocabulary and comprehension. Peter developes the learning materials and leave homework which helps Sherry to review and practice. And I think Peter also gave encouragement helping her build the sense of confidence which is very important for Sherry.

Caren is a wonderful tutor. My 8-year-old daughter is very engaged in her lesson and has become much more confident with maths.

James is enjoying his sessions with Peter. He is comfortable asking questions and he said Peter explains in a way he understands. He is happy to ask Peter to review previous sessions to help him continue to learn. James said that he feels he has missed large parts of learning English during lockdowns as he didn't understand but didn't feel that he could ask the teacher as they had moved on, so he feels like he is now catching up. Peter is easy to talk to and James enjoys his humour.

Clara seems really happy working with Chelsea. Clara finished her tutoring and said with a big smile ‘Chelsea is really happy with me’ thank you For helping her feel success.

For the first time since James started school says he understands what he is being taught. He has been asking Cole if they can work on specific things from his last exam paper which he didn't understand in class, and he says Cole teaches him in a way that it makes sense. We are so grateful we came to Zest, and that Cole is teaching James. James trusts him.

Isla has been fortunate enough to have Jacqueline as her Zest tutor for almost two years. Jacqueline always is so positive and encouraging to Isla during each session she has, always giving a very informative, positive feedback note each week too. I cannot rate Jacquiline more highly, what use to be a struggling subject for Isla, has now become a more doable and enjoyable subject. Thank you. Kind regards. Louise

Peter is good but I suspect dom can’t engage well on line. I’m wondering if there is an in person option at all for tutoring ….

Jacquiline is absolutely wonderful, I think it is due to her wonderful bubbly personality that keeps Issy coming back every week.
Emma

We love Caren. Her gentle manner and customised learning approach mean she quickly builds rapport and creates wonderful engagement for our young, chatty, fidgety and often tired daughter for her after-school lesson. I am always impressed how quickly our daughter picks up new concepts and how together they work together to conquer maths problems that at first seem too challenging to attempt. It's a testament to Caren that there is never a request to skip Zest!
Andrea
5/5 stars
Jacquiline is a great tutor. She is methodical and takes the time to set out exactly what it is that she has planned for my daughter to practice. But I absolutely love that she is attentive and can be flexible and focus on whatever work from school my daughter would like more practice with too.
Paula

Very helpful, uses differing approaches to ensure understanding.
Cushla
5/5 stars
Jacquiline is such a gifted teacher and tutor. Her warmth and sense of humour create an engagement that magically makes maths fun and not a chore (especially after a long day at school). I love how she skillfully breaks down complex maths problems and really genuinely 'knows' the individual student - how their mind works, what they need to work on next and how to motivate them. We would rearrange all our schedules to keep Jacquiline as our son's maths tutor.

Caren is a lovely, experienced and thoughtful tutor. She works with our primary school aged children in a kind friendly way that ensures that they are excited and motivated to return the following week. Caren is always open to working on what we as parents suggest are areas of concern for our children. We highly recommend Caren as a tutor.
