Jelena My son started his English lessons with Siri when he was 7 years old, about 18 months ago. Siri identified the areas of weaknesses and started working on spelling and grammar using engaging and fun techniques. One of them is memorising and re-telling a story using drawings - text maps, and then writing it from the memory, using correct punctuation. My son likes these tasks and they are very helpful for improving memory and storytelling skills. Some new approaches have been tried in Zoom sessions, that work great, too.
Siri is very creative and has helped to come up with original outfit ideas for Book days, which they have implemented together. Siri is also very understanding and adaptable to a child's mood and schedules. And a very positive person to have around!
Jacqui I can't find enough positive words to describe Siri! From the moment she walked into our house, she made an immediate impact with both my children (one with SEN) and I continue to marvel at how she manages to maintain and continue to build a strong relationship with all of us through lockdown and online lessons. Siri makes the learning fun and enjoyable and engages children in a way that they interact with her where they struggle to interact with others. She is infectious in her enthusiasm and energy! She has unlimited patience, is always positive and upbeat, and manages to win my child around even when he is not. Her methods are amazing and get results and my son loves to work with her. I highly recommend Siri!
Louise My 11 year old son has been working with Siri for 18 months. She is absolutely tremendous! Her methods are so inventive and fresh and creative and she was able to engage my son even when he was so adamant that he would not learn. Siri is so patient and intuitive with him - she really understand him and his needs. She is great at keeping us in the loop and showing us how we can support him too. Our son has made significant progress and more importantly is proud of his achievements with Siri and as a result is much more focused and keen to learn - both with Siri and at school.
