Colin has been teaching my son through GCSE and now A levels. My son has made amazing progress in all GCSE Sciences. He was able to produce a great set of results with the right guidance and support. He loves Colin`s teaching style and enjoys the lessons very much. Colin gives us detailed and honest feedback whenever requested. My son continues to enjoy his A level tuitions with Colin.

I am currently in the midst of my final A level exams including A level chemistry. I have been so blessed to have been supported by Colin for my A level chemistry learning and revision over the last two years. I am now at a point of feeling confident and encouraged mainly because Colin has been very supportive. His style of tutoring is very down to earth and he will work with you on what you need to do to achieve the best you can. A rare and remarkable tutor if you are lucky to get him. Thank you Colin for all you do. Mickyle Ps: I have recommended Colin to my little brother on his Gcse Chemistry journey as well.

Tutors Response :

You have been a great student and worked extremely hard work over the last two years. Thank you and best wishes.

Colin is all the things you would expect a top tutor to be - well prepared and engaging. What has really impressed me is how he has taken time to build a rapport with my son. Colin really understands the need to engage the learner before they learn which has proved invaluable with my son aged 14.

Just wanted thank you for agreeing tuition for my son. So far he had 3 lessons and son is very happy but I think it is too early give any feedback. Perhaps Tutor Hunt rethink and request feedback after 3 to 6 months.

Colin is an excellent tutor. He is very organised, student focussed and an outstanding chemistry teacher for A Level. My son says that Colin is thorough and he has made the more difficult content learnable. My son knows and understands every concept that Colin has taught him and is far more confident approaching the exams . I would definitely recommend Colin for A Level Chemistry.

Mr Colin is a very good and a kind, approachable teacher. I was able to get tutoring from him only for a month before my exam IAL . Within the short period of time he helped me immensely to improve my knowledge in the areas that I was really weak.
It gave me strength and confidence to face the exam .
I intend to continue lessons with him for my u5 and u6 chemistry . Thank you sir, for the support given .

Colin is an excellent tutor. My daughter was really struggling with Chemistry A level and he has helped her understand the subject so much better. She has improved her test grades and is starting to feel a little more confident about getting her predicted A Grade in her actual exam. He is always punctual for the lesson and his communication is excellent too. Always prompt to reply to any queries. Very happy with this tutor.

He is very professional, calm and very kind.
He even gave homework for my son to do.
He will go through any problems arise.
He knows the subject Chemistry inside out.
I wish we could have him earlier.

Thank you for excellent teaching in Chemistry A level and Physics A level help. I`m delighted to let you know that Susi got a B in her retake and Kate got a C. They have both improved by 3 grades which is incredible, and shows how your one-to-one help can really make a huge difference.
They are both extremely pleased and so are their teachers back at college, who are very impressed.
Thank you, we will be in touch again I`m sure,
