Testimonials for Joanne McGillan:
- I needed an English tutor for my son as he was struggling in class and needed his confidence and skill set building. I was put in touch with a wonderful lady, Jo McGillan, who was fantastic. My son actually enjoyed English for the first time and looked forward to attending. He learnt a lot and his confidence grew. Jo has an amazing ability to connect with people and teach them the skills they need in a really fun and enthusiastic way. Her approach with my son was perfect and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending. English is no longer a problem and I will be getting back in touch when GCSE exams approach. L. Barlow
- Jo McGillan has boosted my confidence in English Language. Before I went to see her my target grade was an E and within 5 weeks I managed to achieve a B – I now have a target grade of an A! Jo was very helpful and welcoming when I felt I wasn’t able to do the subject and couldn’t enjoy it, and now I am taking it further and wish to continue my lessons with Jo as she gives you the help and support needed.

- Our daughter saw Jo McGillan for just a few lessons when she was struggling to analyse English text and homework had become a bit of a challenge. Within a couple of lessons the renewed confidence was evident as she gained new strategies from Jo which also encouraged her to add greater expression to written English pieces. Can’t recommend highly enough. D. Cardani
