My daughter has absolutely loved and benefitted from your classes. You brought so much joy to this subject and allowed her to take her natural love for the subject to the next level. Thank you!

Although my son is a voracious reader, his writing skills have always been quite poor. When I came across Coriden, I wasn’t expecting miracles; I was hoping for a few tips and ideas to guide him. However, in just a few sessions, Coriden has magically transformed my son into a budding writer. She’s done the impossible – for the first time, he believes that he can actually create a coherent, engaging piece of writing and this is more than I could have ever asked.

Every lesson is beautifully structured and conducted, with the children taking an active part. The feedback we get is fantastic: informative, insightful, encouraging and supportive. 



Coriden really helped my daughter to excel at creative writing. Now I feel happier because my daughter is happier and has confidence in her writing skills. I’d highly recommend Coriden’s writing course!


Just wanted to let you know that O has been offered places at our first choice independent school. He also received offers from the other schools we applied to! Thank you so much for your guidance and advice throughout the course.


Many thanks for guiding my daughter through the course – you’re wonderful at what you do. I’m a very ‘ picky ‘ mum in selecting tutors so although the market is vast out there, you definitely stand out. My daughter will be joining you again next term!
