"I think the support that I received was much needed at the time because if you get disappointing results it is easy to get discouraged. Through the sessions the confidence I had in myself increased and this meant that I felt I could do my exams."

Fiona - Year 12 Student

My daughter benefited from receiving a plan of revision for her GCSE’s. She was of an age and attitude when parents’ advice was neither welcomed or listened to… it was most beneficial and led her to gain the results she wanted.Thank you very much, your input was greatly appreciated.  (Monmouth Comprehensive School parent)

 ’From zero to hero!’ said one mother when her offspring received GCSE grades. A clutch of A*’s, A’s and B’s showed that this was time well spent when at Christmas grades had been less than stellar. (Monmouth School parent)

Yippee! It seems like a miracle, no shouting or tears about getting homework done at 10 P.M. on Sunday. ( Monmouth parent after workshop at Monmouth Comprehensive School)

Comments from previous workshops:

Very good information Frances very approachable and easy to talk to. Loads more information than I expected.

Mrs. Green is unrivalled in the support she gives to every student; providing people like myself with belief in their own ability through her unfaltering care and attention. At the end of Yr 12 I had reached an all time low in my academic career believing that I had no chance of going to university and no motivation to change these circumstances.

Mrs Green gave me the tools to to revise in a way which suited my personality, helping me overcome smaller hurdles in preparation for the most important, final hurdle. Mrs. Green became an incredible mentor… I owe my success to her and hope my continuing achievements will be enough to assure her that all her time did matter and that I’m a job well done!   Meg, Yr 13 student.

Meg just needed the right tools and a boost to her motivation.  If you are ready to work hard but effectively, call me today frances@francesgreen.com or 01600750519
