November exam series results

Just some of the feedback from today’s results:

“G got an A in both exams  – Environmental Management and Development Studies – and to say we are over the moon is an understatement! We can’t thank you enough for all your help and support – you have been brilliant!”

Hi Kate. I wanted to let you know that L got an A* in her exam!! … I can’t stop smiling for her!!! Thanks for everything. We love your courses x”

“Just a quick note to thank you for all your help with Travel and Tourism last year. E took the exam in November and received an A so he is extremely happy. Thanks again”

“I just wanted to say I got my results today – a B in both subjects, and I can’t thank you enough for being my teacher and for all the help you’ve given me over the past two years.I definitely wouldn’t have gotten those grades without you! Again, thank you so much :))”

Thank you Kate and Caitlin for all what you do for M. I enrolled her for TT and Business Studies when she just turned 12 and she completed both courses with Kate and sat for the IGCSE in November 2021 when she just turned 14. She has never been to school and … her results today is indeed a great achievement. She is extremely pleased. And she has done well. The best decision we made was to enroll her at that young age with Home Made Education. Thank you Kate for all your help support and efforts. Your courses were so comfortable to a homeschooled shy child and you made her bring out her potential. Thanks a lot. She hopes to do English in May and Caitlin is already doing a wonderful job. Thank you both of you for everything you do to our young people.”

“She is so happy with her Environmental Management result. Thanks to Kate for a great course which prepared her well for the exam. Last year was a difficult year with assessed grading and studying for 2 autumn and 1 January subject exams. She has opted for a couple of subjects to sit this summer and is still studying with Caitlin and Kate. We are really happy we found Kate and Caitlin at homemade education. You are a huge part of getting E this far in her studying and exam journey, we are very thankful. She has been interviewed and offered a place at all 3 places she applied to for A levels.”

Fantastic results for one of our learners today, and fantastic feedback! At HomeMadeEducation, we feel it is a privilege to be part of a young person’s educational journey.

Kate I am over the moon! He Loved your Statistics and Business courses and I was so proud he completed them both in time. The curriculum turned out to be full of writing which is super tough when dyslexia and dysgraphia can hijack learning and hinder producing written work. … He did admirably and was awarded a 6 in business and an 8 in statistics. Thankyou for all your wonderful teaching, excellent course content and the insane efforts you had to put in at the end to support grading. Oh, and your lovely friendly emails through the course.

Dear Kate First of all, even so the word “ thank you “ isn’t enough to express our gratitude for your support during the academic year 2020/2021…. DD did receive her IGCSE results today and it was celebration time here

Thank you so much for all your support over this year Kate. DS and I are absolutely thrilled with his grade 8 for statistics. 🙂
