“Jo was:

– patient 

– kind-hearted 

– supportive

– accommodating 

– resourceful (finding resources to break down concepts I struggled with e.g.. semicolons, colon activity/ video) 

– willing to learn with me (words or things we were unsure of we worked towards conquering together) 

– encouraging 

 

Jo also:

– helped build my confidence back up 

– was willing to break things down and let me interpret them on my own

 

I can ‘hand on my heart’ say I believe Jo’s dedication to our tutoring sessions is why I achieved the standard. 

 

Having previously failed the exam, I contacted Master Coaching and Tuition. Elizabeth directed me to Jo. Jo was nothing short of amazing: she was patient, supportive and accommodating. Jo had my best interests at heart, always boosting my confidence and breaking down any fears I had, in regards to the exam. I believe her tutoring is what helped me cross the line for my LANTITE Literacy exam.”  (A., LANTITE Literacy Student, July, 2021.)
