Marianne has recently begun to tutor my children in maths. Both of them lack confidence in this subject and a secure foundation. My eldest child also has Aspergers Syndrome.
From the first tutorial, both were very positive about their time with Marianne and were given clear goals and practice materials to follow before the next tutorial. They felt she was patient and supportive and explained things clearly and as many times as needed.
Both feel that they are now able to work more quickly in class. Although they have not had any assessments to see if there is a discernible difference in their test results, they now speak positively about the subject and actually say that it is 'fun' and 'making more sense'.
It is early days, but I have been impressed by her professionalism, reliability, clear communication and prompt attendance at arranged tutorial times.
She treats the children with great respect and speaks calmly and quietly to them.
