James (Mr)

4/5 Rating

My 16 year old son has had lessons at home with Graham, to help with his GCSEs. My son is very happy with the lessons, and said "Graham is a very solid Tutor. He helps with both learning and exam technique, and explains things well using words and diagrams - he brings print outs of particular areas of computing which are very helpful."
Graham is both pleasant and punctual, and my son tells me he feels more more confident about the exam. A good result, I would say.
