Twelve years ago we were introduced to Petal Miller by a family friend. She came highly recommended and began to tutor our daughter Raquel who was six years old at the time. Raquel has now gone on to read Sociology at University of Nottingham. Our ten year old son Rio is currently being tutored by Petal who is affectionately called Auntie Petal by all her past and present students who absolutely venerate her.
Petal has developed a reputation as a caring, firm but patient tutor and mentor for scores of children and teenagers. She has continued over the years to provide a commendable service driven by a dynamic and proactive approach in identifying gaps in student learning. Her ability to creatively harness and improve the inert ability in her students is exemplary.
Many of the children under her tutorship have risen above levels of mediocrity and have progressed to heights of outstanding academic achievements. Her interminable passion to teach and her interest to work in partnership with parents who have high expectations of their children is commendable.
We believe that her stalwart contribution to educational void due to lack of resources and opportunities for many primary and secondary pupils deserve any formal recognition being considered.
