Testimonials

My sessions with Georgina were fantastic and I can't recommend her highly enough. She was extremely supportive with the more technical grammar preparation for my Cambridge application but also helped me develop my wider reading. I was accepted to Cambridge and felt really well prepared throughout the process in large part due to her support, knowledge and belief in my abilities. The interview can seem daunting but Georgina certainly elevated my confidence.

Profesora Irvine is an amazing tutor! She was happy to visit me at home and encouraged me in all aspects of the Spanish GCSE course.
Since taking lessons with her my confidence and understanding of the language have greatly improved, particularly the speaking element.
I was struggling with Spanish until I began the tutorials. Having received a C for my mock examination - I was absolutely delighted to be awarded a Grade 7 (A) this summer!
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Profesora Irvine.

Miss Irvine's outstanding linguistic skills and cultural knowledge were invaluable at every stage of my Cambridge application; with focused sessions covering everything from linguistic accuracy and grammar to Hispanic literature and film. Together with advice on interview technique, her tutoring gave me the drive, depth of understanding and confidence I needed to secure and meet my offer. Thanks to her constant encouragement and passion for all things Spanish, I was able to pursue a degree I never though I would, and for that I will always be grateful!

Hannah (Year 13)

Georgina tutored my son in Spanish at both GCSE and then onto A Level, helping him gain top grades in examinations which afforded him the opportunity to accept a university place at Oxford. In the classroom environment teachers are restricted with both time and class sizes not allowing them to spend time giving valuable one to one support. Having this opportunity to work alongside such a talented and amazing linguist meant he was able to consolidate what he had already learnt and then progress to achieve a deeper more solid understanding of both the written and spoken language. Georgina was very organised and lessons were structured, interesting and set at a suitable learning level and pace. This was helpful not only to him but also to me as a parent knowing that as a direct result of Georgina’s support he was not under undue pressure and as a result gained more self confidence in his own ability and worked to his full potential. I would recommend Georgina’s services to linguists at all levels.
