Client Testimonials

  • Valerie is an outstanding Classics teacher. She worked with our son over the summer, guiding him patiently through his Latin set text. We are grateful for her assistance; our son found the sessions extremely helpful, and is now studying at Princeton University.

    New York Parents.
  • We are very pleased with the Latin lessons that Mrs Weston conducted most professionally with our sons. Our younger son had never had any Latin lessons at school. The lessons with Mrs Weston prepared him very well to join a class of boys who had two years of Latin already. Thank you very much, Mrs Weston!

    Mother of boys preparing for UK boarding school.
  • Thanks for all your help and dedication to Sophie's tuition. She really started to enjoy Latin thanks to you.

    Mother of GCSE pupil.
  • Our daughter achieved an A in Latin but was one mark off an A*. With the D she achieved in the mocks I totally attribute this turnaround in her results to your excellent tutoring.

    Mother of GCSE pupil.
  • My daughter started to see Valerie in the second year of her GCSE course. After a few lessons with Valerie her marks improved and she regained her confidence. She continued to see Valerie and has just achieved an outstanding A* in her GCSE, gaining 100% in 2 of the modules.
