GCSE Tutoring

John is a very pleasant man who tutored my son Liam through his GCSE exams in Maths, English and Business Studies. He made a big difference, was very patient and organised with his lessons. Liam gained the grades he needed for the further education course he wanted to pursue. I highly recommend John for his tutoring skills.

Maths Tutor

John tutored me during my GCSE's qualification in the core subject of maths. During my education I always found maths to be one of my weakest subjects and struggled considerably during year 11 at secondary school. John made it more enjoyable and most importantly raised my confidence in this area. I went on to obtain the grade I needed to secure my place on my intended further education course. John is such a pleasant, patient and knowledgeable man and an absolute pleasure to work with. I now work within the education industry myself and would certainly recommend John to work with any pupil of any age.
