English Tuition Testimonials

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help. My results came through and I can’t actually believe it. I got 90 in all areas. I couldn’t have done it without you!"

Sarah Wallace - April 2022

"Dean has asked me to get in touch with you about his English test results - he could not be more chuffed and I am so proud of him! We're both so grateful for all your support, advice and guidance. He would not have done it without your help!"

Jess & Dean Cunnington - March 2022

"Just wanted to let you know that I secured the results I needed in IELTS to obtain the 20 points for the visa. So relieved I don’t have to sit it again for 2 years! Thank you for your help and advice."

Justine Bacon - February 2022

"I’m so chuffed, I honestly felt I had fluffed it a bit but wow, I did a little dance around the kitchen and my dogs thought I had gone mad haha! I can’t thank you enough for your help, you were so calm and patient and it made all the difference to feel prepared, and ready for what was coming. I couldn’t have done it without your help."

Kiara Batten - January 2022

"I got 89 points on my test!!! I'm so happy and I really can't thank you enough for your help Fife. Thank you so much."

Alan Round - January 2022

"I'm due to take the IELTS at the end of the month and booked a block of 3 lessons with Fife. Fife has really helped identify problem areas, especially in writing that would drop my band significantly, had she not pointed these out to me.

I definitely feel so much more confident now, and practising the speaking test with Fife, has made such a difference. I know it seems another cost to add to the migration journey, but it really is worth it!"

Sarah Jane - November 2021

"Having completed 4 IELTS tests already, I was struggling with the writing section. I just couldn't get the 7  required. Having spent hours on online training and completing practice tests, I found these were not working for me.

I contacted Shelley at the DUC and booked 3 lessons. She really settled my nerves and helped me pin point where I was making simple errors. The lessons are well planned, well explained and very clear. I wish I used Shelley a few tests before and saved a lot of money!"

Ben Green - August 2021

"For anybody who hasn’t virtually met Shelley, she is the PTE specialist/guru working with the DUC to help clients with their exam. My partner had found the exam a real challenge, and after missing out over a couple of points, was definitely disheartened. After some discussion (me just booking in with Shelley!) he did 3 sessions with Shelley, who took his previous test score, looked at the areas he needed more help with, and worked on them during the zooms and with homework between sessions (20mins max). Today we got the email we’d waited for, he passed with the points we need to submit our EOI when the time comes. Beyond proud of him because despite what people say, this is NOT an easy test for everyone, and from hearing what the sessions include, it’s also about knowing the right formula to pass. If you’re on the fence about booking in for a session or the bundle…do it! You really won’t regret it."

Zoe Brown - July 2021

"Shaun had a tutoring session will Shelley so she could look at his scores and guide him on what needed to change. Since then, he has been practicing essays from the prompt questions twice a week with me looking over them to see if I could spot any errors, and you’ll never guess what - all his hard work paid off today and he got the 20 points! Advice, if you’re struggling with it, carry on, pay for the mock tests and book in with Shelley for a tutoring session… You can do it!"

Rachael Mason - July 2021

"Shelley was able to guide me in the right direction with specific questions that we knew needed work to get those extra points needed. Understanding how to answer questions in the exam is one of, if not the most important step, and she certainly helped with this. If it wasn't for Shelley, I likely wouldn't have got the 20 points and nearly 100% in the exam, so thanks Shelley!"

Calum Maccoll - June 2021

"When I was revising for my PTE, I was struggling to see consistent results - I had decided to sit the PTE Academic test with revision only coming from YouTube videos and mock test apps on my phone. On my first go at sitting the test I was annoyingly a few marks off what I needed in the writing section (I was aiming to get the full 20 points), so to try and avoid this happening again I decided to book a session with Shelley to specifically improve my writing.

Shelley was very good in identifying where I was falling short as she had set me some homework prior to my lesson. She provided me with excellent tips and tricks and a clear structure to go into my next PTE test with and thanks to Shelley’s great help in the session we had, I achieved over 79 on all sections on my second go. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sit the PTE Academic test."

Ben Horner - June 2021

"Following two failed attempts at the PTE English exam, Shelley was recommended to me via the DUC. We met a couple of times using Zoom, going over practice questions on my weak areas. Following this support I passed the next exam, gaining the score required for my visa application.

I would strongly recommend tuition sessions with Shelley as it is a fast paced exam, and she can show you different learning techniques to better prepare yourself. Knowing how to answer each section takes the stress out of the exam."

Louis Stimson - June 2021

"A massive thanks to Shelley. I struggled with my IELTS exam, particularly the writing section. I had 4 lessons with Shelley and have finally passed! The support was outstanding and could not have passed this without her professional guidance. Very approachable and friendly. The lessons were tailored to suit my needs and would recommend her services to anyone."

Steve Doughty - June 2021
