We contacted Jamie as our son was struggling with his English. He was fantastic and patient and gave my son the confidence to pass his English GCSE. Hes friendly, polite and punctual. I cant recommenced him enough for anyone who needs an English tutor. Thank you Jamie.
Jamie is an amazing tutor who really knows his subject. Jamie is enthusiastic, adaptable and patient, he goes the extra mile to make sure his student understands. We cannot thank Jamie enough for the confidence he gave our son and enabled him to gain a solid level 5 on his English retake, from a previous level 3.
Jamie is a very good English tutor. With his excellent support my son has got a good grade for GCSE English Language. Thanks a lot from My wife and me for helping our son and we recommend hm as a brilliant tutor.
Following the Mock GCSE English Lang. results i felt that my son would benefit from extra help. His tutor was quick to identify the areas that needed focus for the exam and helped immensely to strengthen his understanding and gave him confidence in his own ability. As a result he successfully passed his GCSE. I would highly recommend Jamie.
A big thank you to Jamie, who has tutored my son, Thomas, in English for several months. As well as being totally professional and excellent at his job, Jamie has been empathetic towards my son`s needs and gone the extra mile to assist us in boosting Tom`s confidence. As a result, I feel I have regained faith in the teaching profession. So, thank you for everything, Jamie, and perhaps we might see you in college.
Jamie is a very capable and pleasant English Language / Literature tutor who we contacted earlier this year with only a few months until my sons GCSE`s.
Jamie demonstrated a deep understanding of the both the curriculum and the new exam structure.
Jamie quickly formed a great working bond with my son whilst identifying the key areas that required improvement.
Jamie always came prepared, left work to be covered, provided material and reviewed / marked any homework.
Consequently Jamie was instrumental in my son significantly raising his grades in such a short period of time.
Jamie is an outstanding 5* tutor. He tutored my grandson from a definite fail with low academic self-esteem, to to a respectable C grade in the more difficult GCSE this year. He helped Owen`s confidence and application enormously.Jamie was highly sensitive to Owen`s particular needs and liaised with school and family to best ascertain a wider understanding of his student. He was endlessly flexible in changing appointments- to accommodate football matches and other important dates! He tutored Owen right thro the exams,coming the day before English papers-even on a Sunday. He has certainly made one happy student and therefore a proud and happy family. We`ll never be able to thank him him enough! 3 Big Cheers for Jamie!
