Committed, helpful and
I met Giovanna in the first year of my American Studies degree course at the University of Leicester, during which she has helped me in Literature (specifically Classic US Texts, Modern American Literature and other AmLit courses) and in essay writing across the board.
Giovanna is patient, helpful and straightforward. Her methodical approach as a proofreader, peer reviewer and fellow student helped me to view my own writing more objectively and improve steadily. I now feel much more confident in my writing ability, and graduated with a 2:1 (I couldn't be happier!!).
Higher marks all round! Very satisfied.
Talented and kind
I would recommend Giovanna without a doubt.
Giovanna has proofread and cut down my University Law essays on a number of occasions. As a law student, writing is imperative to success in the degree. Demonstrative of her caring nature, she has patiently worked alongside me to edit and improve my writing, not stopping until the work had reached a very good standard. I have gone to achieve high 2:1 to firsts in these essays.
In addition to this, she has helped to hone my verbal reasoning skills, teaching me better techniques through practice tests.
Crucially, Giovanna’s humour and patience makes her a joy to work with.
I have had success in University essays and verbal reasoning tests.
"It takes a special person to light that fire, to raise our children's expectations for themselves and never give up on them, no matter how challenging it might be. All of us are here because, at some point, somebody did that for us." And we were blessed to have Giovanna, that extremely special person in my son's life, who needs no introduction & undoubtedly a STAR TUTOR.
Giovanna is simply "Terrific, Energetic, Able, Cheerful, Hardworking, Enthusiastic & Remarkable".
Couldn't have asked for anything more than Giovanna as a tutor for my son, she is simply amazing.
Thank you for all your efforts and help.
Wish you a prosperous and great career ahead

Patient, helpful and hardworking.
Giovanna spent so much time working on my story! Weeks of work on her part, and lots and lots of useful advice. I can't recommend her enough to any writers out there. Especialy the ones that are thinking that now might be the time to get someone to look at your work. Get Giovanna to read it!
She is friendly, calm, gave me a new insight into my work and she is very hardworking.
It was a pleasure to work with Giovanna and I will certainly be working with her again.
My writing has improved. I can see the mistakes now that Giovanna has pointed them out. I couldn't have done that without her; she's given me a new perspective on my story.
Best tutor ever!
I'm not sure if I can even put into words how wonderful Giovanna is. The effort, time and knowledge she supplied as my tutor was so unexpected; I've just never had a tutor that cares as much. She looked over several drafts of my plan, kept checking in with me to see how I was getting on and was such an unbelievable help with my university essay! She has such a great eye for detail, structure and analysis. Although I feel more confident with academic essays now, I'll definitely make sure to have more lessons. I just can't stress how great Giovanna is.
Improved understanding of academic essays
I asked Giovanna to review some of my assignments, which consisted of complex scientific explanations. She not only corrected any grammatical/ sentence structure mistakes but she clearly tried to understand what I was writing about and suggesting where more explanation is needed to make the point clearer.
Additionally, she not only provided me with the final corrected version of my assignment but she also had another file with all the highlights, notes and suggestions which, for me, was very educative. All in all, great tutor and would recommend her to anyone!!
I have understood where my mistakes were and couldn't have done that without her help.
Very kind and encouraging tutor
I asked Giovanna to prepare my daughter for late 11+ examination. She did such a wonderful job in a short period of time. She is committed, encouraging and very kind tutor.
My daughter got a place in the school she wanted.
Outstanding tutor for 2017!
Giovanna teaches A level English Literature to my daughter who is home-educated, and in doing so has taken on the responsibility not of supplementing my daughter's college work, but instead of running the whole syllabus. An outstanding teacher, she oozes passion and energy for the subject, and has given my daughter added confidence to do her best work. We could not have found a better tutor anywhere; Giovanna is a tutor who really cares.
English Literature (A-Level)
Fabulous progress over a short space of time, and a very happy student!
Giovanna is absolutely lovely. She is kind and my son has been in the first lesson very comfortable and immediately taken to her approach of making English fun.
Excellent first lesson
very enjoyable teacher.
English Language (GCSE)
Giovanna knows her subject well and has highly effective and engaging teaching methods. She prepares materials relevant to the brief and arrives ready to hit the ground running. She is a warm friendly young woman, my daughter finds her easy to relate to and work with. We are so happy she was recomended to us. Thanks so much. We do not know the outcome yet but whatever it is we are extremely grateful.
Giovanna is an excellent tutor, she is very friendly, patient and responsible, always be well prepared. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to improve English.

Giovanna came to us highly recommended. It is hard to do justice to Giovanna's many skills as a tutor but I will try. She always arrived at sessions highly prepared and it was obvious she had spent considerable time planning the lessons. She was a mine of information on finding helpful recourses. Giovanna was a patient, engaged, relaxed tutor, and for our daughter I really can't imagine finding anyone better. We did try others. I think the thing that sticks out the most for me, was her enabling way of teaching, she is so positive and I believe her influence gave my daughter the confidence she needed to go for it. We were literally overjoyed when Clara's GCSE results came through. Thank you Giovanna!
Passed language and literature GCSE exceeding expectations!
