Testimonial

Helen Walshe's encouragement and patience with my daughter has made a very big impact on her learning. Not only does my daughter now feel more confident but she is enjoying doing her Health School work. Helen's caring nature makes it very easy for my daughter to ask for help. She now loves handing in work so she can see what Helen thinks of her writing which is a huge turnaround for her as she has struggled with English because she has missed so much school. I can't praise Helen enough for the difference she has made to my daughters learning and her emotional heath.
