If my son had not had been tutored by Daryl the past few years, I think perhaps my son’s mathematics results would be incredibly different. Before starting tutoring with Daryl, my son had come across several figures of authority that didn't see his potential to succeed and instead offered unhelpful advice and opinions. To quote but a few:
“He is not going to be able to cope with secondary school”
“If he were my child I would look at home schooling”
It was so refreshing when we finally found a tutor that recognised my son really wasn't beyond learning in a mainstream school and was capable of do very well in mathematics.
My son has a diagnosis of ADHD, I am in no doubt that at times my son’s disorganisation and poor concentration have been somewhat of a frustration for Daryl, however, he never looked to me, as a parent to resolve the issue. I have always valued Daryl’s thoughts and opinions and felt first and foremost that we were working together as a team to support my son.
This past year I have seen my son sit his GCSE Physics & Mathematics. I am extremely proud that he has not only “coped” with secondary school, he has flourished and achieved a grade B in both subjects.
With this in mind I would like to acknowledge and say thank you for all Daryl’s amazing hard work. Daryl is an outstanding private tutor and as a relatively young gentlemen himself I believe he is and it has been an absolute pleasure knowing him.
