Being a young male in my 20s, and not having had similar lessons before, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The casual environment and Linden's friendly approach soon had me gaining benefit from and looking forward to my lessons. From the early speech exercises, the range of tuition grew to include reading poetry, prose, and even singing which I had previously never pictured for myself.
There was no escape from Linden's passion for sharing a love of reading. Discovering literature I enjoyed always led Linden to bring twice as many examples the following week, and it was clear that she was thinking about and preparing for my sessions during the week. Practically, Linden always made efforts to schedule around my chaotic and unpredictable schedule. Above all, she took a genuine interest in what was going on in my life, making sessions chatty and enjoyable, whilst planning lessons accordingly to ensure maximum benefit. I would recommend Linden's tuition to absolutely anyone"
