How students have benefitted from Penny’s courses

Student & parent testimonials

“I would like to recommend Penny Chivers for Home Ed Maths classes and tutoring. She has taught one of my children for GCSE this year, as well as one for KS3 maths. We have experience of both her group classes and one to one tutoring. She is an excellent teacher who brings out the best in her students. And she was so helpful during the cancelled GCSE fiasco too.”

“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your hard work and dedication with Jenna this summer.  You really have been incredible and this journey would have been a lot more difficult and challenging without your commitment and support.  Both Jenna and I are extremely extremely grateful for all of your hard work and time.”

“Penny tutored our son for his maths IGCSE exam in less than a year, with unflappable good humour and precision. She was accessible and encouraging, putting in extra time to answer questions and helpfully navigating the maze of past papers. Highly recommended!”

“Penny is a friendly and skilled maths tutor who really knows what her student needs help with to bring out their full potential. As well as good teaching methods she showed my son an easy concise way to take good notes which was both great for his learning and revision”

“My daughter first came to see Penny at the start of year 11, her GCSE year and it has been such a positive and valuable experience for her.  Penny has been brilliant all the way through, always calm and patient and explaining all the work in a way that she understood.  My daughter’s confidence in her own abilities grew steadily week by week and to hear her say “I really enjoy maths” whenever I picked her up from her lessons was music to my ears!  She’s now planning on taking maths for A level.  I would thoroughly recommend Penny … thank you for everything!”

“So happy with the maths tuition with Penny for both my children.  She’s very patient and kind and knows her times tables!!  Penny has confidently sailed my son through his 11 plus exam helping him to pass (I’m so grateful) and is now working with my daughter towards her GCSE maths exams.  I would highly recommend Penny as a tutor to anyone looking for support for their child, helping them get a better grasp on maths and to be more confident and feel able to complete maths tasks themselves.  Penny has really helped my two children and I’ve seen a great improvement in their ability.  Thank you.”
