    Mesbah gave my daughter a few top up English sessions, prior to her GCSE’s. She was friendly, caring & very informative. My daughter enjoyed her sessions and found Mes to be a great help. Would definitely recommend her.

    As a student of the university of Birmingham, I am highly conscious about the level of academic work I submit and as a result of this , I use Mesbah's academic services to critic my work before submission. She is able to provide guidance on how to best tackle the essay title in question along with what appropriate sources to use in your discourse; and following this Mesbah is able to proofread your essays with some last minute adjustments.

    Mes tutored our 15-year-old son for 3 months on the run up to his English GCSE's, we are awaiting results, but feel sure that having Mes around twice weekly has increased his chances of getting a higher grade. We noticed his ability to talk about what he needed to do become more positive and his confidence grow. We found Mes to be very caring, passionate and able to motivate in a way that we couldn’t. We will be calling on Mes when my daughter gets into year 10 to give her a boost. Thank you Mes, we’ll be in touch x

    What a fantastic tutor! Since I started my English has improved significantly. I got the work a lot easier, reading poems also became so much easier. I struggle with one to one as I feel I have to get things right first time, here I felt comfortable and didn't feel embarrassed when I got something wrong as Miss helped me until I got it right. I can't thank her enough.

    Mesbah has recently been tutoring our son Dylan in preparation for his English exams in year 11. Dylan had always struggled with revision and study prep work until meeting Mesbah. She introduced positive methods of study, provided good communications whilst building a friendly but professional approach with our son. We can’t recommend her enough for any additional study needs that you may require. Thanks again Mesbah.

    English was my sons weakest subject but due to Mesbahs passion and patience hopefully he will get a B grade, Mesbah goes above her tutoring hours time,sends many useful links, marks exam papers and sets homework. But most of all my son is comfortable in Mesbahs company and happy to ask her questions which in turn has made him more confident in his English.

    Mesbah has been tutoring my daughter who needs to re-sit her English exam. She has identified my daughter's weaknesses giving her strategies to improve which has made her more positive. She enjoys the friendly style of tutoring and always looks forward to her lesson, I am therefore confident with Mesbah's help it will make all the difference.

    I trained with Mesbah, both as an undergraduate and in a post we shared in Special Educational Needs. I can only support what others have said. She is a dedicated and highly professional educator and she cares very much about the pupils in her care. She is a fantastic communicator and her work, one-to-one, with pupils is incredible to observe.

    She is a patient and hard-working teacher and I would not hesitate to recommend any of my own pupils to her for additional support.

    I am a Maths teacher at a secondary school and I worked with Mesbah for 6 years. She is thoroughly professional in the way she deals with both staff and pupils alike. She is highly experienced in teaching pupils with different abilities - whether they are in the top sets or whether they require support in basic skills. She would get very involved in the content of the lessons she covered and would always seek to engage pupils at every opportunity. She believes in educating the whole person and would encourage the pupils to take an interest in the arts, music, travel, literature, history and current affairs. I unreservedly recommend Mesbah as a private tutor.

    Mesbah helped me with my poetry comprehension. She encouraged me to look at the words from a different perspective and think more about their meaning. She is very patient and kind and I would recommend her to anybody looking for 1-to-1 tuition.

Mesbah is diligent and really cares about the progress and welfare of the children in her care. She is an effective teacher who can always be relied upon to deliver excellent practise. Mesbah is supportive, caring and dependable. I would not hesitate in highly recommending her.

    I've been really impressed with Mesbah's patience and the clear focus with the one to one tutoring my son has been receiving. He has had problems at school getting into particular topics, but has been enthused to catch up following the encouragement from extra tutelage.

    Until recently I worked with Mesbah for 6 years in a secondary school. I can vouch that her pledges to help nurture the individual personally and academically are true.

    During our time working together I saw excellent practice where she fostered good relationships with pupils to help them achieve their best academically. She encourages the individual to be engaged in their own learning and develops strategies to promote this.

    She is able to support pupils of many different abilities.

    If you need someone to provide bespoke effective support then I would not hesitate to recommend Mesbah.

    Mesbah is incredibly supportive and encouraging. She has been tutoring my 8 year old son in English and Maths over the last couple of months and it is ashtonishing to see how much he has progressed in school and also with his confidence. I'm so grateful for her support, as being a busy mum, she definitely provides much needed help.
