Annabel has a unique way of teaching and offers very personalised learning, listening intently to parents concerns whilst finding a way through to the student. My son is starting to build greater confidence in his ability to self learn and improve his comprehension skills, all down to the perseverance of Annabel's continuous support.

My boys (12, 11 and 7) have been taught by Annabel for the last 4 months and they have made great progress. They are motivated by her lessons and are always happy to attend. Their handwriting and vocabulary has improved hugely.
I thoroughly recommend Annabel as an English/Literacy tutor.

We are glad to have met Ms and would like to thank her for her help and support in teaching my daughter. Annabel is a passionate and organised teacher who made the subject enjoyable and fun. Her dedication and enthusiasm are infectious and it has been a pleasure to get to know her. I would highly recommend her as a tutor.

Annabel has been very accommodating in trying to find space in her very busy schedule. My daughter loved working with her and is looking forward to her next session
Nanouschka - November 2016
My son's teacher commented on his work which has improved and that is only after one lesson; wow you are brilliant and I owe you big time, thanks. He really thinks you are good (better than his teacher).
A Happy Parent of a GCSE Student - 21 Nov 2016
An excellent tutor, with a clear passion for the job which can be seen with the way she interacts with my son's. They love going and learning with Annabel and will happily carry on even when the lesson ends : ). I highly recommend Annabel as a tutor as she is bubbly and very welcoming

Annabel has been amazing with our daughter she has given her so much confidence for her English GCSE exam Annabel has a great way of explaining things Just wished we'd found her earlier We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Annabel.

Annabel is a truly amazing tutor, she has helped my son and given him so much confidence in himself with his English gcse aqa exam. She is a lovely helpful person, who goes out of her way for you. Book your child in now!!!
Cath Jack - 1 Jun 2016
I can't recommend Annabel highly enough. My son has problems with confidence and his concentration and added to that also has reduced hearing. Annabel has a fantastic way with him, his confidence has grown and he really enjoys his lessons with her. I particularly like the fact that Annabel uses indoor and outdoor games to assist with learning, this is very useful for my son's kinesthetic learning style.
Lynn Preston-Dye - 31 May 2016
Thank you for giving our Keon the confidence boost in revising for his SATS. With your continued support and helping him to understand things, we as parents have needed help also!Keon is now learning the meaning of his spellings also. :-).Top girl you!Michelle and Matthew.
M Jones - 29 May 2016
My son had two lessons with Annabel. He finds that her way to explain history is interesting and engaging. He is looking forward to the next lesson. Since our first exchange of emails, Annabel demonstrates competence, professionalism and excellent communication skills, I am confident that my son will make good progresses with her.
Elena Noe - 24 Apr 2016
Bel tutored our 9 year old boy for a number of sessions prior to a Harpur trust entrance exam, which he passed with flying colours. He was instantly at ease and made fantastic progress with both his speed of writing and creative writing in a few sessions. He's now about to go back to Bel for some further creative writing and interpretation prior to end of term exams. I (he!) can whole heartedly recommend Bel. She is considered, calm and focused in her approach and is able to motivate and generate results whilst making learning fun - as it should be!
Jon Patterson - 24 Mar 2016
Annabel has quickly established a very effective working relationship with my teenage daughter helping her to rebuild her confidence in A level Psychology after a poor teaching experience. Annabel and my daughter cover a great deal of work in the hour. Annabel's enthusiasm is very engaging.
Lisa Hunter - 23 Mar 2016
I've lived in the UK for many years but my English still lets me down especially in writing. After less than a year of tuition, my writing skill is much improved, thanks to Annabel. I wouldn't have gained my confidence back without her help.
Thitima Morris - 22 Mar 2016
My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her sessions with Annabel. She is a very inspirational tutor, she is very creative and imaginative and engaged with my daughter so easily. She quickly progressed with her reading and number work in a fun and creative way. I would highly recommend Annabel as a tutor, she is very enthusiastic about her work and gets results.
Victoria Manser - 11 Feb 2016
My daughter has been having extra tuition since September and we have noticed a marked improvement. She is now very confident with her words and letters and absolutely loves going to her lessons. When she first started she had no confidence and was very worried about school particularly reading and writing, this has now completely changed and she enjoys going to school. I would definitely recommend Annabel.
Jayne Rance - 7 Feb 2016
My daughter has difficulties retaining infomation in to her long term memory and consequently was struggling with spellings and times tables. Her confidence and progress has definitely improved since visiting Bel and my daughter enjoys her lessons.
Sheri Garratt - 1 Feb 2016
Annabel is currently tutoring me in A Level Psychology and History and she is a wonderful tutor. I am much more confident in what I'm learning. She encourages interesting discussion around the topic and she is very passionate about what she's teaching. Would highly recommend her to anyone that wants focused and engaging teaching from a friendly and approachable tutor.
Ano Gonye - 1 Feb 2016
This is the first time my children have had private tuition and I would highly recommend Annabel. Both my children were dreading tuition and were very resistant to the idea! However, Annabel built in time to get to know what the girls enjoyed as well as what help and support they needed. Their progress has genuinely been excellent and they enjoy the lessons and enjoy school more too.
Sarah Henderson - 28 Jan 2016
My 7 year old has been having lessons with Annabel for a few months now after struggling to keep up in school. I have seen a massive improvement in his handwriting in a fairly short time, and most importantly he absolutely loves his lessons! Annabel makes learning fun and interesting and I would recommend to anyone.
Cheryl Ashpole - 27 Jan 2016
We've worked together for over three years in the field of assisting years 3 and 4 writing projects; without her enthusiasm, dedication and total commitment to ensuring I had the correct approach to young people it would not have been anything like as successful. She has a remarkable talent for emphasizing with even the most recalcitrant of children and demonstrating this in a most practical sense and has been able to efficiently share this with me - therefore her commitment and achievements are wholeheartedly endorsed without reserve.
Bruce Edwards - 24 Jan 2016
My six year old son has been having lessons with Annabel for 18 months; one initial focus was to improve his writing and thanks to Annabel’s patient tutoring that happened. She then helped improve his confidence and strength in maths, which has made him one of the best in his class. Now she teaches him a whole variety of subjects and he loves to learn from her; he can’t wait to recount the facts that he and Annabel have discussed. You might think that after a day at school a child would resist more teaching, but my son enjoys the lessons so much that he looks forward to them.
Trevor Bodsworth - 22 Jan 2016
Bel is tutoring my son age 11(homeschooled due to a 'bashing from a school teacher' age 5)and the difference in his attitude, confidence and wanting to work, is amazing. He now has a lesson with her three mornings a week and is always keen to fire up the laptop and get ready to start. When first discussing an extra lesson for maths, I was thrilled when she mentioned what she planned to base it around; no boring desk work here! Tanks! My sons current favourite subject. Measuring tanks, weighing and other 'real life' situations are used for the maths lesson. I understand why he loves his lessons so much, they are totally tailored around his interests. In fact, I'm not actually sure he knows he is actually doing any work any more. Thank you Bel.
Fiona Kitchen - 22 Jan 2016
Annabel has been tutoring my son Jake in English for around 6 months now. Her enthusiasm for teaching is boundless and her ability to build an instant rapport with her students is amazing! Jake is always happy to go to lessons and both his confidence and ability have improved dramatically.
Kathie Hughes - 21 Jan 2016
A fantastic tutor, will always go the extra mile to provide the best service and tutoring. Would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat.
Emma Froggatt - 21 Jan 2016
My Grandaughter, aged 12, has been going to Annabel for 2 years now as she has been struggling with maths at school. Since being with Annabel I am impressed with her progress. I cannot praise Annabel enough for her dedication to my Grandaughter, especially as she makes the lesson fun and interesting. I would definitely recommend Annabel, fantastic teacher.
Jane Green - 21 Jan 2016
Annabel's dedication to her students is second to none. She has a passion in her subjects and makes learning fun. I've noticed a huge improvement in the abilities of one of my children who, before coming to Bedford Tutor, was struggling at school. I'm impressed with his progress in such a short space of time. Definitely one tutor I would recommend and trust.
Jeff R - 21 Jan 2016
Fantastic teacher who is always polite, friendly and very enthusiastic about her teaching. My son has really improved with his reading and writing over the last few months thanks to Annabel. Annabel is very understanding and will always try hard to fit in a lesson if we are unable to attend. In conclusion, great results, great value for money.
Charlotte Slaven - 20 Jan 2016
My son is doing history GCSE and needed that extra push, In Summer 2015 My friend told me about Annabelle as her son was having A level tutoring, who passed with Fantastic results. I got Suraj enrolled last Summer and I have seen Suraj enjoying history a lot more, Annabelle explains the modules thoroughly, sets homework, provides sources. Suraj has just received his results from his controlled Assessment A*, I did not expect him to get this and with the support of Annabelle Suraj has been able to achieve this. Roll on GCSE exam, Suraj is enjoying History and is considering taking it as an A Level option. Thank you Annabelle.
Kally Cheema - 19 Jan 2016
What can I say about Annabel. I can't praise her enough. I'm so thankful to her, she makes learning fun and exciting. You instantly understand the way she teaches. Before I started taking tuitions with Annabel, I used to find writing essays difficult; within 3 lessons I learnt how to analyse and write essays - she makes it so simple. Annabel is a fabulous peson and so down to earth. Shes the best tutor I've had so far.
Arifa Begum - 16 Jan 2016
Annabel is a great teacher. The breadth of her knowledge is amazing. She makes lessons fun whilst clearly ensuring the student learns. My daughter has really enjoyed her lessons so far, learnt a lot and is looking forward to many more in the new year.
Sally - 18 Dec 2015
I started studying with Annabel as my school weren't being at all helpful with my AS Psychology. I started 3 months late and with essentially no knowledge of the subject, and with essentially Annabel as my sole help, I finished with an overall A grade in AS Psychology including 100% in one of the two exams. Brilliant, interesting tutor and lovely, fun person as well. Absolutely recommend.
Alexander Jones - 15 Sep 2015
My 6years old daughter has been going to an Annabel for almost a year now. My daughter is always looking forward to attending her lessons because Annabel makes the lesson fun. She is firm when she needs to be but she knows how to bring out the best in her students.
Aderonke Fadayiro - 13 Aug 2015
Very pleased. Well reccommended.
Matthew Jones - 8 Aug 2015
My son has benefited from Annabels friendly and enjoyable home tuition. He enjoys going to lessons and alway come back happy from each lesson, Annabels teaching methods are great. Stephen Suberwal.
Stephen - 22 Jul 2015
My two sons have been having tuition with Annabel for almost 3 years, one of which really struggles academically at school. She makes education fun and is always coming up with creative ideas to help engage the children. She give lots of encouragement and my children's confidence has been boosted as a result. I would definitely recommend her. She is particularly gifted in bringing out the best in children with special needs??.
Caroline Paxon - 21 Jul 2015
My 6 year old daughter love Annabel's lessons. As a Home Educator, Annabel's lessons are a great complement to my teaching and my daughter's learning.
W Thomas - 21 Jul 2015
Annabel tutored my special needs son for over 2 years and was an absolute angel with him, helping him with patience and understanding. When he needed a little extra help she was great, most of all showing him how fun learning can be, I would recommend her in an instant.
Karen Martins - 1 Jun 2015
My son is using Annabel for AS Psycholgy as due to ill health he missed lots of lessons and she has crammed a year into a couple of months. She is also doing exam revision for AS and A level history which has also been excellent. He is now feeling positive and confident about his exams.
Libby Jones - 11 May 2015
Bel really helped me get a grasp of my work and in boosting my confidence for exams. She was also very friendly and highly enthusiastic about my success.
Alistair Nash - 10 Jun 2014
Bel has help my daughter tremendously, over the few weeks that my four year daughter has attended the lessons she has learned all alphabet with phonic sounds and numbers. My daughter has grown in confidents and know she picks up books ready for reading. The lessons consist of work and play with a little homework, this has made lessons educational and enjoyable.
Jason Phillips - 23 May 2014
I have Bel tutoring me for A Level History and have been really impressed by the outcomes. I have improved knowledge, skills and confidence in the subject as a result of being tutored by Bel - her lessons are structured to my needs and she always asks what topics I am less confident with in order to structure an engaging lesson. By having Annabel for three lessons I have already began to achieve A's in exam questions and essays, I was previously achieving C's. I would highly recommend Annabel to anybody looking to have engaging lessons fully based around your needs and an an excellent tutor!
Kayleigh Wiltshire - 1 May 2014
Bel is a fantastic tutor. My son is 6 and hearing impaired and he has come on leaps and bounds since seeing Bel. She uses her skills as a magician to keep my sons attention and interest going. This is isnt the kind of tuition where you sit at a desk for an hour, Bel has my son up and down and running around and it works for him.
A Khan - 16 Jul 2013
My daughter has been seeing Annabel for revision on A2 Health and Social. They have been getting on really well, making excellent progress and the feedback is excellent. Annabel always follows up with a mail or a text to keep us informed. We are really pleased. Nigel.
