"Teacher Helen is very familiar with the requirements of the creative writing curriculum in UK. She taught and revised with my son various genre and writing styles that are required by the school. She also improved his writing style by providing a lot of practices, both during the lessons and as homework. Teacher Helen is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher and my son thinks the lessons are very helpful."

"I wholeheartedly recommend Miss Helen as an exceptional creative writing tutor. Her personalised teaching methods and engaging approach have profoundly enhanced my son's writing skills. By tailoring lessons to his interests, such as a specialised assignment on the Titanic, she significantly increased his engagement and creativity. Miss Helen goes beyond improving academic performance; she instills a passion for learning and boosts confidence in her students."
