Feedback For David (5)
David is helping my son with a GCSE English Language resit. He has always arrived on time, been polite and my son tells me he has been very helpful.
David was very helpful to my daughter, he was calm, patient and encouraging.
Overall I am very happy
David has only been tutoring my son in English for a month but so far we are very pleased with him. He is polite, punctual and professional and my son feels he is really benefiting from his help.
Early days, but David is very very pleasant, knows his stuff, clarified all necessary information with the exam board as he hadn`t taught an IGCSE before with no coursework. He is not phased. My son felt instantly comfortable with him and having had to rearrange a meeting, says how nice David was about it. So all good
