Firstly, thank you for introducing us to Helene. W thoroughly enjoyed the time he spent with her and we found her feedback and the information she shared with us very useful. We have already ordered the books Helene has suggested we get.

Mrs M Shortlands

Thank you for the report which we will read with interest. It was very helpful to talk to Helene and both P and I very much enjoyed her company. Helene was very clear and very accurate, I felt, about where the weaknesses and strengths lie.

Mrs H Chelsea

Thank you very much for arranging the time with Helene and sharing the results. Helene was extremely helpful and professional. She was able to connect instantly with our little son and gave us superb actionable feedback afterwards. We really appreciated her input and couldn't have wished for a better consultant.

Mr Y Dubai

I wanted to reiterate what a great job Helene did. It's a great service you offer. Understanding your child's academic baseline and learning style is a great foundation to build upon. Helene is a true professional and inspires a great deal of confidence. She is a real ambassador for your company.

Mrs S Belgravia

I just wanted to thank you so much for arranging for Helene to come and see H yesterday. She was absolutely brilliant and I just wish I had met her a year ago. H and her really clicked.

Mrs M Chelsea

Thank you very much for sending S's report, as I said we found the assessment worthwhile and very reassuring that the problem lies in more exam practice and technique rather any other problems. Helene's feedback and suggestions were of tremendous value to us and since then S has been more tuned and more enthusiastic about practicing.
