Reference for Tom D

Tom is an outstanding tutor. Tom quickly assessed the unique capability gaps of our girls (ages 8, 11,12) and put in place a clear plan to build confidence, test their breadth and ensure that the foundations remained strong. We would highly recommend Tom and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again

Tom Davies

Tom Davies is giving some private tuition to my 14 year old daughter to help her with her GCSE maths course. She finds maths very hard and Tom has been able to give her a lot of clarity on topics that she previously couldn't grasp. Her recent maths grades have been much improved. She enjoys her lessons with Tom and he is always extremely reliable and punctual.

Economics
Outcome:
My son felt much more prepared and confident going into his AD exams.
