Feedback For Darren (-1)
I am not happy at all as he did not know how to teach and where to start from.He also did not know how to help with his homework. II as a parents did not like his attitude, just wasted my money.
I do not recommend him at all for your child.
Tutors Response :
I`m really dissapointed to hear this review Franky. Is there anything specific you felt I did wrong? I`ve never had a negative review before and I`d like to know about areas I can improve in. I would also advise when moving forward that it will take most tutors a couple of sessions at least before they can gauge where a student is and how to approach future lessons. You may be expecting a little too much too early, there are no quick fixes in tutoring I`m afraid.
