Testimonials

Testimonial by Rosie Heaton
"It was only with Melanie’s influence and guidance during my History A-Level that I was able to boost my grade. I surpassed my expected grade and also got a place at university. Her knowledge of exam skills and technique and the way she communicates this knowledge, is second to none. Melanie's expertise shines through in her teaching style. Melanie’s passion for history is infectious. This left both my classmates and myself feeling motivated, inspired and committed to the subject. I genuinely believe that without the high quality resources Melanie offered within class, I would have struggled to achieve the grade that I did. The revision techniques she taught and the belief she put in me, helped me enormously."

"Melanie and I have been colleagues for over 10 years. The resources that she creates are engaging, creative and the students like them too. Those students who use Melanie's resources are fully confident for the exam. Not only are they aware of the mark scheme, but also what is required of them too. Above all, Melanie’s energy and great approach to teaching is inspirational. I really look forward to using the resources within this site!"

Testimonial by Graham Luccock
Melanie has been a governor at Sale High School for a number of years and has been an excellent lead for teaching and learning on our Standards and Achievement committee. She has often chaired the committee and her insight and experience on teaching, learning, safeguarding and skills development has been essential to the improvement of governance of the School. I would thoroughly recommend her to organisations who need support on Teaching and Learning and more general issues on educational matters.

Testimonial by Katie Purcell
"Melanie's well-structured and clear resources enabled me to achieve an A grade in my History A Level. This enabled me to go to my chosen Russell Group University, where I am now in my second year of a Law degree. Even in my current essay writing, I still find myself using the paragraph starters and structures Melanie taught me! Melanie had great knowledge of the way the exam board marks exams and exactly what they were looking for and this was definitely made clear from the get go. My fellow pupils and I always talk fondly of our time in her classes she was and (still remains) the best teacher I have had the pleasure of being taught by."

Testimonial by Karan Chhabra
"Melanie was an excellent teacher and she helped me learn by using detailed materials on each section of the course and by utilising creative teaching methods. She was very approachable, meaning I wasn't afraid of asking a question if there was something that I misunderstood, and her classes always had a very friendly and warm vibe. Melanie has extensive knowledge of exam skills and revision techniques, meaning I was well prepared heading into my exams. I eventually got an A grade in history, and Melanie's help played a huge part in that."
