English confidence has increased

“My 10 year old has had a 'in person' tutor before Cluey Learning but they didn't really engage him and it wasn't effective. Our experience with Cluey has been really great for him, Melissa has really engaged him and worked with his personality so well. I think online tutoring at home worked especially well for us, its easier and the tutors are fantastic. As a result, his confidence with English has really grown. We are very happy with Cluey learning and would happily recommend them.”
