I used to think that being a teacher was the best thing in the world.
That was before I became a tutor.
It is a privilege to join my students on their Maths learning journeys and see how:
Obstacles are Overcome, Confidence is Boosted and Success is Achieved.
The icing on the cake is when I receive messages from parents about how my tutoring has:
Taken Away Stress, Brought Back Confident Smiles, With New Enthusiasms for Learning.
The cherry on top of the icing is when my students send me excited messages about:
Feeling a Lot Happier, Moving into a Higher Set or Getting Great Test Scores Back.
Here are a selection of those messages.
From the Parent of a Year 9 Student ...
We are extremely pleased with my daughter's progress since she started with Viv. Going into Y9 she had taken a
Massive Nosedive, Lost all her Maths Confidence
and was Struggling to Keep Up with the Fast Moving Curriculum.
She had always been quite competent at Maths, and set in the top half of the year, but was getting very low scores and had developed a Maths Phobia.
Viv has helped her turn this completely around.
Viv has a lovely calming personality, she is extremely positive, caring and great company. They cover so much in an hour and the homework helps to reinforce what they have covered in the lesson.
The lesson is entirely tailored to my daughter, and Viv is always happy to help her with school homework or what they are doing in class.
She did some great revision sessions before the tests, which not only helped my daughter enormously, but also took the pressure off me trying to help her with things I do not know a lot about!!
Her exam results went from being in the bottom five of the class, to the top half within twelve months, and she has also gained so much confidence.
All of this is thanks to Viv – I cannot recommend her enough.

Viv The Maths Tutor
From the Parent of a Year 11 Student who I had the Pleasure of working with since Year 8...
We are delighted to say that my son, Lewis, got a Grade 7 in GCSE Maths!
I’m very aware that this very positive outcome is in large part down to Viv’s input.
Thinking back to his earlier days of secondary school
when he lost confidence and was moved to a lower maths set.
It would have been very difficult for him to pull himself back from that position without Viv’s support, guidance and expertise.
Once he started having tuition with Viv, the improvement in his performance and confidence was noticeable and sustained.
He then managed to hold his own when moved back to the Higher Maths set despite periods of Covid related disruption to schooling.
We appreciated the flexibility that (Ziteboard) the on-line tutoring platform offered during that particular time.
We really can’t thank Viv enough for everything that she has done!”

Every now and again. I agree to some 11+ or Year 6 SATS prep ...
Violet's only had a handful of sessions. This is one of the messages which her Grandma sent.
Sam, A Relieved Mum in Lancaster,
sent this about her Year 11 Son ...
I have always dreaded talking to the maths teacher on Parent's Evenings -
the last one I thought they’d got the wrong child!
Not only had my son improved by 2, nearly 3 grades (from 4 to 6),
he was engaged, confident and actually trying the extension work!
A definite Proud Mum Moment!!
I put this down to Viv giving him the confidence and tools for the lessons he previously dreaded going to.
