Kristy has been such a fantastic tutor for our son. She has been working with us since September 2019. She is patient, kind and clear in addition to being a strong subject matter expert. She is able to flex her technique for him as he navigates obstacles given his need to process information differently. She also has a way of making the topics fun and she has figured how to appeal to his competitive nature! She has been a solid partner through this difficult period where all of his classes are virtual. He has gone from strength to strength under her tutelage and we are grateful for all of her help.

My son was diagnosed with Dyscalculia almost a year ago but with Kristy’s help my son is really excelling. My son is now confident with maths and we are seeing an improvement in school. Kristy is so passionate about her job. My son looks forward to the sessions. I would definitely recommend Kristy as she is so passionate about helping children and making a difference.

With Kristy’s help there has been vast improvement in subjects covered especially Maths where we have seen a remarkable difference. He has made so much progress with Kristy. We thank you for all your help and support .

Kristy is a highly qualified and experienced teacher and tutor. She has a track record of success in transforming children’s relationship with education.

My two children struggle with literacy and numeracy and were falling behind at school until Kristy started tutoring for us. She has given both children a much firmer foundation in the fundamental principles of literacy and numeracy than they were able to achieve at school.

Kristy is a holistic practitioner who is able to work with a broad spectrum of SEN and can also help with diagnosis.

My son seems so much more confident, just in the way he speaks about maths and his participation in class.

We feel very fortunate to have found Kristy, who has been working with our two children (now aged 11 and 13) for over 5 years – mainly on maths, but she has also done some literacy / fine motor work with our son particularly.  Kristy is reliable, friendly and kind – and hits the right balance between encouragement and expectation with both children (who have very different personalities).  She is analytical and imaginative in terms of understanding and meeting each individual child’s needs / priorities and learning style, plus very willing to work in partnership with us as parents.  Both children like spending time with Kristy and have made excellent progress, in terms of both skills and confidence, with her support.

I was very impressed with Kristy’s lesson and found her to be very engaging and patient. I can’t wait for my son to work with her in the near future.

Forging Roots Education offered free trial to my kids and Kristy is a fantastic teacher. She is particularly adept at dealing with young kids and she quickly established a trust relationship with the kid. I am very happy with the progress and would highly recommend Forging Roots to improve the gaps in your kids learning.
