Feedback For Gordon (7)
Site is my choice so n/a.
We have found Gordon to be a patient, methodical and caring tutor. His manner is both professional and friendly.
Gordon is very professional and a good tutor. He has shown patience and structured his tuition in a way that has ensured our son understands the topics discussed fully before the end of the session. Gordon also sets a few tasks to be completed by the next session, which ensures the learning is reinforced. I would thoroughly recommend Gordon as a tutor.
Very knowledgeable about physics and maths, unlike me!
Gordon has been working with our daughter for 1 hour per week for 5 weeks now. We originally felt she needed a confidence boost with GCSE Maths and Further Maths and he has worked wonders in this short time so that she now feels far more relaxed and her confidence is returning already! We are delighted, and the fact that Gordon can also help with GCSE Physics is just icing on the cake. Gordon is always well organised, extremely thorough and patient and he is definitely "on our daughters wavelength". We can`t recommend him enough.
Gordon has just started teaching my son but is already making a difference to his understanding of the subject.
