"Lindsay is absolutely brilliant. She consistently exceeded expectations when tutoring my 17 year old nephew. It's obvious that she loves her work as the language tutoring came naturally. She applied techniques that worked for my nephew, by taking the time to figure out what he needed. 10 out of 10 from me."

Robin, Chapman ACT

"Since working with Lindsay my writing skills have improved greatly. My self confidence has increased, especially with writing tasks at work from revisiting the basics of writing and grammar in a supportive environment."

David, Belconnen ACT

"I have been working with Lindsay for the past 2 years on my autobiography. I have found Lindsay a first-class academic and have no hesitation in recommending her for anyone wanting help with serious personal writing."
