From Nadia (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) “Saffi is a very kind, knowledgeable, patient person, and I have enjoyed our tutoring sessions. During our sessions, Saffi used various teaching and revision techniques- including ‘Mind Maps’ and ‘Quizzes,’ that I found very helpful and effective in preparation for my AS Level Psychology exams. Saffi has always been on time for our hour-long sessions, and was always ready to tutor me with her full attention. Overall, after several tutoring sessions my assessment results and confidence in AS Psychology have risen, and I was benefiting from Saffi’s teaching skills, as well as her vast knowledge in Psychology, from her studies in A-Levels and University. I hope to continue my tutoring sessions with Saffi.”

From Callum (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) “Saffi is very good at understanding how i like to learn. This was extremely helpful as i was not being taught the best way at school and Saffi definitely helped me to improve my psychology (AQA) at A level before my final exams. I was am very satisfied and happy with the tuition so far and i am sure i will perform better in my A levels as a result.”
