review(s) for Antony.
I have been taking lessons with Antony for a number of months, now, and would have no hesitation in recommending him to other students wishing to learn French. He keeps the lessons moving at a good pace, always ensuring that I`ve understood what we`ve covered, while the supplementary materials he provides help round out the subjects we discuss. The skype lessons are extremely convenient and Antony has proved very flexible in accommodating any of my scheduling changes.
Great tutor - listened well to what we needed for our son. His teaching style was popular and straightforward. Has enabled our son to go back this term with much increased confidence in his French.
I wanted to improve my Spanish grammar and Antony has been the ideal tutor for me. His lessons are challenging enough to be interesting and provide an ideal mix of grammar, speaking and reading Spanish. I like the fact that he gives me homework every week and tests that I have learned it as this pushes me to make more effort. I think he is a very experienced language tutor and I would recommend him to anyone that wants to improve their Spanish or other languages he offers.
Really really happy with Mr Antony. Very professsional in what he does. The way he approaches and makes the child learn is very comfortable and simple.
I asked Antony to teach English to my italian nephews while visiting Cornwall and he did an excellent job. My nephews have said he was very professional while his lessons were interactive and fun at the same time. I would not hesitate to use his services again. Thanks Antony!
Mr Antony has tutored my son for a year 8 exam in French. He was very systematic and through. My son enjoyed the sessions and he scored high marks aswell.
Brilliant teacher, patient but firm and my Spanish has improved a lot in just three weeks.
He has created a plan that suits me and my knowledge base, tailored to the way that I said I learn best.
Antony is tutoring my year 10 son online for his French GCSE. I have seen massive improvement and progress with my son since he started his online sessions with Antony. He gives him good materials to study and practice, and he keeps him motivated and challenged. I will surely use Antony for my daughter when she starts preparing for her GCSEs, and I highly recommend him.
Very helpful tutor, covers the topic areas very well and all round a good tutor
Really enjoying my lessons with Antony. Well structured lessons with a good balanced content. Look forward to my next lessons. The flexibility of the online lessons is perfect for my schedule.
Really pleased with progress so far. Would recommend Antony!
As a couple with a toddler we wanted to find a tutor who would come to our house, at flexible times and Antony is able to accommodate this. He uses a range of teaching styles to help us learn, which makes the lessons really interesting. Antony is a fantastic tutor, we cannot rate him highly enough.
Mr Antony is fantastic! His teaching methodology is very structured and friendly. I was initially sceptical with the whole online learning model but I`m pleased I went for it!
Brilliant, friendly and patient teacher. Thank you Antony.
Because of an urgent requirement at work I had to learn Spanish ASAP to reach an intermediate level within a few months.
Antony and me are a couple of months into the process and I can only recommend him as a very knowledgable, diligent, organised and friendly tutor!
Recommend Antony very highly indeed! I am enjoying my lessons so much and really look forward to the next. His teaching is clear and supportive and directed towards my personal learning aims.
Antony has been great - We are an adult group of work colleagues who meet fortnightly for two hour Spanish lessons, I would really recommend this to groups of friends wanting to learn a new language together.
Antony has been very patient with us as total beginners and also flexible and accommodating to fit in with our work schedule. We have had a few sessions now and are really starting to get to grips with the basics. Antony pushes us to learn new things each session and we are surprised whenever we re-visit material how much we have covered in such a short space of time. Lots of repetition, a relaxed environment and a good sense of humour is really helping us to learn.
Antony is a fantastic tutor with a professional and positive approach. Classes with him are very interesting and amusing. I definitely recommend.
Our son has had a couple of sessions (spanish) with Antony which have been excellent. He is very personable, perceptive and immediately worked out what was needed. He is very flexible with the service he provides. Just what we were looking for.
I would highly recommend Anthony. He is pleasant, punctual and well organised. I am an adult student and lessons are tailored accordingly.
My son has had a few lessons with Anthony and really enjoys it, also seems to be learning a lot too.
We are very pleased with the support that Andy has given our daughter, she is continuing to improve each week. Would highly recommend him.
Antony is a great French tutor. He is clearly extremely experienced and our daughter is improving with each session. I would recommend him very happily.
Excellent tutor. Very easy going, affable, good rapport with children.
Anthony has so far undertaken x2 tutorials with our daughter and I cannot believe how lucky we are. He immediately got to know her abilities and teaches in a very engaging, relaxed but motivating manner.
