Coaching

“Bex is a wonderful professional, full of sensibility and knowledge. She has been helping me a lot since we started our coaching sessions. I’d recommend her services to anyone who wants to find a new direction in their professional life and also to the ones who want to make their dreams come true because she can definetly get out the best of you! ☆☆☆☆☆” (Ana, life coaching client) 

“Absolutely recommended and commended! Bex Harper has been a wonderful life coacher for the past 5 months […] very attentive, listening to every detail during the sessions, taking notes, reflecting upon my behavioral patterns and delivering one elucidating insight after the other.  With her direct help on the subject of clutter and hoarding, for example, I managed to finally clean up my basement after 4 years! I have also managed finally be courageous enough to leave my previous job and find a better one, which I have found under 3 months.” (Daniel, decluttering coaching client)

“Bex is a skilled and insightful life coach. She used a combination of open questioning and values-based exercises which helped me clarify where I was at and what I wanted to work on, leading me to make positive changes I wanted to make in my career that would otherwise have taken me much longer or not happened at all! Even after 2 sessions, I was left with clarity of thought and purpose that benefited my life and gave me confidence. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Reanna, business coaching client)

“Bex was very professional and helped me makes sense of my priorities and work towards what I wanted to achieve. I was feeling a bit lost until my sessions with Bex and they helped me figure out where I wanted to go. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Ben,  wellbeing coaching client)

“I really enjoyed the Coaching experience with Bex. She is skilful,attentive and is the facilitator for effecting change. Insight was easily gained with her support. Bex is highly recommended as one is safe ,supported and valued at all times. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Jean, life coaching client)

“Throughout the coaching sessions I had with Bex, I felt really listened to and heard, which is a departure from my daily life. Bex helped me identify different ways of thinking and acknowledging my achievements and how I relate to others. Bex is a really caring life coach and used her professionalism and empathetic nature to gain my trust as I felt she was totally supportive of my vision for life. I highly recommend Bex, if you are looking for a life coach as her skills are far reaching and her ability to recognise my unspoken words in our sessions spoke to my heart as she helped me fond healing in many levels. Thanks again 😁 ☆☆☆☆☆” (Charmaine, life coaching client)

 

Tutoring:

“One of the best teachers out there! Bex is without a doubt one of the best teachers I’ve had. 5 months ago i wasn’t confident enough to speak German let alone have a conversation! But now I can confidently speak German to native speakers and others a like. She’s so helpful and really prepares her lessons to perfection. She challenges you as well as building your confidence. Also on a personal level a wonderful person who is kind, caring and passionate about what she does. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Max, A-Level German tutee)

“Bex has made my daughter feel at ease and who is currently enjoying essay writing which she previously disliked. Bex takes her time to explain essay writing techiques which has massively increased her confidence in this area. I would recommend Bex to anyone. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Stella, parent of a GCSE English tutee)

“Learning Portuguese with Bex is brilliant. In only 3 sessions I have learned so much and my confidence has really grown. Bex has done a lot of travelling as well, so it’s really nice to learn from someone who has been immersed in different cultures. I really enjoy my lessons with Bex and would highly recommend her as a languages tutor! ☆☆☆☆☆” (Nicola, Portuguese tutee)

“Excellent and passionate tutor. My daughter was referred to Bex by her school German teacher because it was her first time studying German and she needed extra support. Within 3 months, her teacher emailed me to say she has really improved in German subject and was proud of her. Bex also gave detailed feedback of my daughter’s progress and areas to work on at the end of every term. Thanks Bex. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Cynthia, parent of a German tutee)

“Like Bex, I am dyslexic, however she has taught me multiply ways around this problem to be able to take challenges head on. In just four weeks I’ve gone from not having a clue about VR to passing a VR enterence exam. Not only this she has taught me how to write and form essays correctly. So I highly suggest Bex Harper. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Sebastian, Dyslexia Coaching, Verbal Reasoning and GCSE English Tutee)

“Bex is patient and kind, and very knowledgeable about what she’s tutoring in (in my case A Level German). I have found that she is always organised with resources and plans lessons, but is flexible to suit the tutee as well, eg. I can change the lesson plan if I want. I have improved a lot within the 2ish months I’ve had her as a tutor, definitely recommend. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Erika, A-Level German tutee)

“I have been very impressed with how she interacts with the children she teaches and the standard of her lessons. She is friendly, professional and approachable and achieves good outcomes. I highly recommend her as a tutor. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Simone, co-owner of The Tuition Pod)

“Outstanding private tutor! Bex took on a Year 8 student who had not studied German before and needed to catch up with a year’s work. After 3 months with Bex she had caught up and is now moving ahead of the rest of her class. Perhaps even more importantly , the student is showing great enthusiasm and interest in her German studies and is setting herself some challenging targets. ☆☆☆☆☆” (A local secondary school teacher)

“I would highly recommend Bex as a tutor. She relates well to her students and is very knowledgeable in her subject. She is also very encouraging and supportive. ☆☆☆☆☆” (Corinne, parent of A-level German tutee)
