Feedback For Colin (11)
Colin had helped my daughter achieve all grade 9s in Science in GCSE. He helped her increase confidence in all sciences, and he broke down challenging topics so she would be able to understand them much easier, helping her to receive great marks.
Colin is a very good tutor, with excellent knowledge of exam techniques and requirements. Thank you.
Excellent tutor. Helped my daughter gain confidence in Germa. Thank you Colin. Paul
My son visited Colin for French A Level tutoring. He was an excellent tutor.
I contacted Colin as my son needed help with the second year of his French A level course. He had been predicted a C and he was keen to make sure he got the best A level grade he could. Colin was brilliant and we cannot recommend him highly enough. My son had an immediate rapport with him and his teaching was excellent. The eventual A level grade was 2 marks off an A and a lot of the credit must go to Colin.
Great tutor - approachable, understanding and knowledgable. Very much hope to use again.
My daughter is really please with Colin and finds he really helps her!
