Jas has worked with my son on A-level computer science, both on theory and the computer science project. I found him easy to communicate with, prompt and helpful. More importantly, my son has found the sessions very helpful. He is quite reserved, but Jas has managed to draw him out. He loves Jas’s way of explaining concepts and says he got more out of a session with Jas than weeks at school. On the project side, he now understands what is required to achieve the grades he is targeting and we are expecting a 1-2 grade improvement in his exams.

Thanks Jaz. My son now has a really clear understanding of object oriented programming principles. He has been struggling with this all through lockdown. I am so happy that he is now able to move forward and feel really positive. It was a pleasure to see him engaged with his tuition. Very professional. Thanks again

Jas to be honest you have been a godsend. My son was struggling despite high predicted grades at school. In fact the school recommended you!! There were clear gaps in the teaching and in so many areas my son needed clarification and mentoring. Your approach in reviewing every aspect of his examining boards specification and finding weaknesses is exactly what we needed. Thank you also for being responsive and proactive. Sunil

Tutors Response :

Bless! You`re welcome, I glad to have helped

Jas is a passionate, supportive, friendly teacher who has really helped me to develop my A-level computer science skills. He has really helped me in coding, teaching me a range of skills such as nested iteration. Not only did he teach me these skills, he checked my understanding, allowing me to fully understand the skill before moving on. Furthermore, he has taught me different parts of the specification such as Karnaugh Maps, making me remember the theory due to his fun/motivating teaching methods. I would definitely recommend Jas if you are looking for a computer science tutor.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the compliment (especially the one about the fun teaching bit)!

Jay is such a good teacher, always making my daughter at ease and giving her confidence to progress to the next level. I would highly recommend Jay for anyone who is studying Computer Science and needs extra support as schools are so short of good computer science teachers

Tutors Response :

Thank you Emma! It`s good to see shes progressing well. I agree, alevel computer science is a complicated one with shortage of teachers - seems there is a common trend across the country.

Jas is an excellent, approachable and very friendly tutor. He has been tutoring my son since the beginning of year 11, and not only was Jas able to help and encourage him with the course matter, but he straightaway identified other weak areas and devised a plan to help my son to achieve a very high grade.
Jas is now tutoring my son in A level, and he is very knowledgeable in programming, Skeleton programming for A level, Object oriented programming and low level language LMC. Jas encourages his students to do better, and has a great sense of humour. We`d highly recommend him !

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind review! :)

Jas tutored my older son - GCSE Computer Science. Jas is thorough and patience with a great teaching style. He connects well with the students and focusses on specific needs of the student. My son`s teacher predicted he would fail GCSE, after tuition with Jas for only 10 months, my son achieved grade 7!
I would recommend Jas as a great computer science tutor, so much so that my younger son has started tuition with him.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind review. I`m glad to help your further :)

Jas is one of the most amazing tutors I have ever met. He tutored my daughter who was a beginner for one year and thanks to his great help my daughter passed her Computer Science GCSE with 8 (4marks away from 9) when she was in year 9. I was really satisfied by the good result. Jas has nice sense of humor and always knows how to train his students with interest. He is skillful at putting up their grades! A wonderful tutor!

Tutors Response :

Thank you. Michelle is a perfect private GCSE candidate - hard work from her..and determination from you as well to ensure she succeeded especially at her age.. a whole team effort ! P.s. Im looking forward to ensuring equally good Alevel result from her in a couple of years (I have a good feeling)!

My daughter`s grades in computer science had dropped down to a 3 due to a poor teacher at school. Jas has a very well structured approach to supporting students` learning and is highly conscientious. After just a couple of months of tutoring her grade was back up to a 7 in her year 10 mock.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your feedback. I will aim to ensure she achieves a 8/9 grade this year. Promise!

When i came to Jas my thoughts towards computer science was a boring subject which i just thought i needed to pass and nothing more. i was struggling a lot during lessons and in tests and was at a 3/4 grade or a D/C grade and not understanding any of the basics that i had to know.
Computer science was by far my worst subject compared to all my other subjects where i was getting 5s. When i first had Jas tutor me he assessed my abilities by setting me coding challenges from easy to hard and i even found the simplest difficult even after one year of the GCSE course. I was also struggling a lot on the NEA which Jas had helped enormously to pass. After 6 months of tutoring not only has Jas helped me with my GCSE which i have now done he had quickly made me enjoy the subject to the point where i have now applied myself to take it for A Level.
In 1 month Jas has helped me get a grade 3/4 to a solid grade 6 in my GCSE mocks.
Jas is a great tutor and i highly recommend getting him to tutor you for computer science and will at least boost your grades by 2.

Jas has only been tutoring me for a few weeks but my confidence in the subject has increased massively, and he has really helped me with topics I find tricky such as Little Man Computer, Karnaugh Maps and my Python coding skills.

Just had the school report through and I can quote the following "Emily seems to have gained in confidence in the subject since she has received extra tutoring outside of school. Her mock results were more promising than the Y12 results indicating an upward trajectory" We are now looking from a D/E grade to a possible B. So thanks Jas for the great job in supporting this development.

Tutors Response :

I am pleased for her! Roll on exams!

My son has been working with Jas for just over a month and he has made a huge,difference in his confidence and knowledge. He is very engaging and motivational with his students, teaching them a skill for life not just about passing an exam. He is very well prepared for all sessions and makes a complex subject come to life.

Jas has been a welcome influence in what we hope will help move up 2 grades for A level Computer Studies. He has a deep understanding of the subject and gives excellent guidance on what the exam board will be looking for so can help tailor the tuition to help focus on getting the right answers and the most marks on previous exam papers.

We contacted Jas because my son was struggling with his computer science coursework. Not only was Jas able to help and encourage my son with that but he straightaway identified other weak areas and devised a plan to help my son to achieve higher.
He is a punctual and pleasant teacher and best of all he encourages his students to do better.
