Feedback For Stuart (3)
Stuart was amazing. He helped my daughter get an A even though her college teacher was off sick. He went over and above to ensure that the syllabus was covered and she had a good understanding of it
An absolutely awesome tutor who will go above and beyond to help you with whatever area you are struggling with. He regularly would make time to see me more than once a week if I felt I needed extra help at any point throughout the school year. Little touches such as bringing extra articles for me to read or recommending Radio shows / TV shows that would aid my political knowledge were also really helpful. He would mark any extra essays I wold write with a quick turnaround and extensive feedback and tips for further improving my essay writing skills. I began my sessions with Stuart after being predicted by my school to achieve a C grade in politics. In summer 2019 I achieved an A grade in politics and would never have been able to do that without Stuart`s help. Thank You Stuart you are a star.
Stuart helped my daughter prepare for her GCSE history. She had missed some topics and needed to catch up. Stuart was always well prepared, punctual and was calm and pleasant. I would recommend Stuart for GCSE history.
