As a past student on Christys I was able to improve my weaknesses in maths but more importantly I was able to further improve my strengths with her help.

I had a very enjoyable experience during my lessons as she was able to explain concepts clearly and was also able to provide me with challenging questions for my better topics.

I would recommend Christy to any students out there who need help with their maths.
