Phineas tutored my son through GCSE level French and English and went on to teach him French at AS level. Phineas established a good relationship with my son and motivated him to achieve the A grades in all the subjects which he tutored him for. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any tutoring post.
English Literature (GCSE)
A grades in all subjects!
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.
Successful entry into Harrow
Knowledgeable and good-natured tutor
Phineas was a very friendly tutor that easily got along with our son Richard. He was quick to spot Richard's abilities at the first lesson. Phineas polished his knowledge and worked on the improvement of his performance at exams. We are happy with his contribution to Richard's success.
