We had moved to England from abroad, with less than a year for my son to prepare for the 13+ Common Entrance. Phin was engaged to undertake this daunting task and did so with great results. He was extremely reliable and prompt, a master at keeping a fidgeting boy focused, always kind and polite , but firm in his resolve to stay on subject. He has a thorough knowledge of the complete range of subjects needed for 13+ and makes learning fun. He is a delightful person in every way. He came on holiday with the family and was a great addition to the trip, fitting in well with all, yet never forgetting his charge and what needed to be accomplished . We thoroughly recommend Phin and wish him well in his new enterprise.
