Testimonials

EXERCISE CLASSES

“Sarah is an amazing teacher and pitches her lessons at just the correct level for the population in and around Ludlow.  She is careful with her exercises and tailors them to the individual class.  She is encouraging.  Sometimes I have a good ache for a few days after a lesson as I have used the muscles which have been ‘dormant’ for some time.  The ‘good’ache disappears within 2 days and if I manage to go twice weekly I notice a much faster progression with my fitness and well being.  I always come away feeling much more mobile and positive.”  Highly recommended.  Catherina. Ludlow (Pilates client)

Pilates has helped strengthen my whole body, improved my sense of balance and increased my awareness, giving me more control of my everyday movements. It has also helped in my management of pain brought on by degenerative disc disease and arthritis.”   Client, Ludlow

“I have been attending Sarah’s Pilates classes for 1 year and have noticed a difference in my posture, improvement in back and knee pain.  Initially, I started off with a few 1:1 sessions, where my lesson was tailored and modified to my requirements, this helped me to focus on which muscles to use correctly and to build up slowly before going onto a group. I have also learnt how to breathe correctly and this has helped with my mild asthma”.   Client, Ludlow

TUITION

“I have known Sarah for 2 years, she is my daughter’s English tutor. She is a good teacher.  English is not our first language, but Sarah is very patient and encourages my daughter to speak and write.  The lessons are carefully prepared. My daughter enjoys the lessons.”  Parent, China

Sarah has successfully tutored our son through the 11+ exam, which we are delighted with.  She was always well prepared, reliable and communicated clearly about progress and the next steps for continued improvement.  Her style also built our son’s trust and confidence which facilitated his progress on both weak spots and strengths”. Parent, Birmingham.

I heard of Sarah from a friend as I was looking for a tutor to help me daughter with entrance exam preparation in Year 5. She was an excellent teacher. Punctual, reliable and always very well prepared for each lesson. So the time she spent teaching my daughter each week was really valuable. She gave very good advice as well as listening, and I really felt the tuition was tailored to my daughters needs as an individual. She achieved an excellent result in her exam, and not only that, her school teachers have commented how much she has improved in her comprehension and creative writing skills over the year. I work recommend Sarah without any hesitation”.  Parent, Birmingham

PROJECTS & VET TRAINING

Leonardo da Vinci Project 2011- Vocational Education, Language, Culture & Work Experience in Tenerife:  Project No: 163059

Case Study – Sohail  age 18 – Certificate in Fitness Instruction Level 2 

I studied for a Fitness Instruction level 2 Qualification with Fitness Excel, combined with Spanish and a three week work placement. My work placement was based in a children’s summer tennis camp. 

The Leonardo da Vinci project has enabled me to use all my skills which I learnt on my vocational course of study and developed additional sports skills such as coaching the children tennis in the sports camp and instructing them martial arts skills.  This experience has really helped me develop my confidence. 

I have learnt how to manage money on a budget, improve my linguistic Spanish skills by working with Spanish children.  I have also made new friends and met other students from countries such as Turkey and Germany.  This experience and the transferable skills gained on placement will definitely help me with my future career as I plan to study business studies and management at university.  I can highly recommend work placements for other students”.

“It was a good balance between free time to visit places of interest combined with the work placement.  The first week was essential to acclimatise to Tenerife as I had not been before.  The intense Spanish language at the Host school have me confidence to go out and use my linguistic skills in shops and cafes before going on the two week work placement”.                                          

“Working in a different environment has developed additional skills for me, such as managing a group, participating in different sports, communicating in Spanish as well as observing other coaches and working alongside them was a great learning experience”, this is a great opportunity and I would definitely like to return next year”.  Arsalan – aged 17
