The Good Schools Guide review of Able Tutors

You don’t get much from the Able Tutors website, particularly when it comes to its owner, Lynne Nathan, who doesn’t even rate a mention. But behind that anonymity, there’s a forceful personality with strong opinions on almost every aspect of education.

Lynne was an educational late starter. A reluctant office worker (‘you were expected to take a secretarial course and get married,’) she was permanently bored – as well as being aware of being cleverer than the people she worked for.
