ACADEMIC MENTORING AND COACHING IN SCHOOLS
“Fiona has been an amazing academic mentor to our Year 13 students. She is patient, calm and extremely knowledgeable. Fiona takes the time to understand each individual student and works with them to increase their confidence, raise their aspirations and help them to realise their full potential.
All our students who have been mentored by Fiona have improved their grades significantly and have learnt new techniques to deal with essay writing, revision and exam preparation.
It is clear to see that Fiona genuinely cares about each student and it is a pleasure to work with someone who is not only caring and passionate about young people, but who is a wonderful person too!”
