Experience Matters!  

Experience helps you learn about the everyday realities of life and most importantly equips you with the soft skills needed to succeed in life in general. After all, there is a reason why Albert Einstein said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.” 

The most valuable contribution of experience comes from the self-awareness it gives you. Every previous generation is an extremely important facet of any society and their role significant and valuable. Let us learn the art of intrinsic living from people who have contributed to the society in some way or the other.   

Speaking from personal experience, I can say that there is nothing more valuable than sharing an experience for the sake of the future of our society. I have been devoting myself to the perfection of this craft and also written several memoirs to educate, enlighten and empower. There is a common thread in all my memoirs suggesting ways how we can value ourselves and pass on the knowledge to the next generation.  


After our older son passed his 11+ exams having got trained by Ms Hans, we didn’t need to look elsewhere but use her services for our daughter. In a short time, she became more confident and improved in literacy and numeracy. Then the pandemic broke and we thought how a 6-year-old child will learn on zoom? But we were amazed at how Ms Hans regulates pupils remotely. She provides homework to support learning of lesson then she goes through it properly pointing mistakes. Correcting mistakes has helped our daughter to do better next time. She is now able to check her own work before handing it in. We think, Ms Hans’s teaching is very special. She has all the skills to bring the best out of a child, whether it is personal or zoom lessons. We were surprised, our daughter also learnt joint up handwriting on zoom. And that’s because of Ms Hans tolerant attitude. She has a way of making children work hard but they still love her

Ms Hans taught me through the 80’s and 90’s and now she is teaching my children who are 7 and 5. Due to the lockdown, I could not imagine stopping lessons and we have been doing zoom lessons. I was a bit worried about how a 5 year old will adjust to zoom lessons. But everything has been going really well. Ms Hans understands children; she is intitutive and positions herself to get the best out of a child. My kids have made during lockdown in all their core subjects, maths, english and science. The resourses Ms Hans uses are effective to engage and challenge children. She is firm but fair; my kids are always looking forward to the lessons. Recently, she has been awarded Certificate of Excellence in teaching. I would add to it: if anybody is an architect of a private lesson, it is Ms Hans. I would recommended her wholeheartedly.
