Hi, my name is Andy and I`d be delighted to tutor your child or yourself. I am an enthusiastic person always focused on enabling the progress of students. I am an effective communicator and feel that one of my strengths is the ability to transmit information in a number of different ways to ensure understanding. I believe that learning should be fun and engaging, added to that my dedication and good sense of humour will provide the best ingredients are in place for sound progression. I can tutor students of all abilities and pride myself on being able to form great relationships with my students, to the extent that their ability to learn and attain exam technique is gained through working well together.
