William is very learner centred, calm and encouraging. He increased the confidence of my son in analysing pieces of text for GCSE English literature. He helped specifically with poetry, directing him to the kind of language he should use. In English language he was particularly helpful by making Ben more confident in the exam, by giving him structures to fall back on if he got stuck or panicy.
Ben achieved A*s for both subjects.
