Joanne started helping my daughter just a few weeks before the Wandsworth test, when I realised she was progressing more slowly than her brother had, who had got into Graveney without any tutoring. My daughter was getting about 30 - 40% in the timed tests, and we had weekly slots with Joanne whom my daughter really loved - she was so kind and really cared as well as being a brilliant teacher. Her accuracy was really improving but her speed didn't match her ability, so prompted by Joanne we got a psychometric test done which showed she was on the dyslexic / processing speed spectrum - a really important fact to carry forward to secondary school. We worked hard, encouraged by Joanne who was very motivating, and she ended up in the top band for our local school - amazing! Can't recommend her enough.
