I wanted to improve my Computational thinking and Python Coding skills during the final year of my GCSES. I went to Mr. Bradshaw for an hour class once a week. I enjoyed my classes a lot and he made them very interactive. He teaches amicably and focuses on the practice work very much. He breaks the lengthy and difficult coding tasks into simple ones for easy comprehension. The practice exercises are great for learning. And he helped me achieve 5 grades higher than what I was achieving before his classes. Thank you for everything Sir!

We contacted Graham at short notice to support my son with his computer science A-level. Graham went out of his way to accommodate our request. Graham was knowledgeable, engaging and supportive and really helped to build confidence going into the exam period. Thank you Graham for all your help and support.

Robin (Mr)

Graham has been a fantastic tutor. He went through all aspects of the syllabus with my son for his A level in Computer Science. He delved down into detail on areas my son was less comfortable with and clearly explained some of the more complex topics. He was both encouraging and challenging and has given my son knowledge and confidence. Thank you!

Tutors Response :

Thank you. It was a pleasure.

Graham is helping my son prepare for his GCSE. He has been very helpful and accommodating to fit in sessions at short notice. He is clear and precise in his teaching and makes topics easy to understand. He has made a massive difference to my son`s confidence in this subject in short timeframe. His tips on learning and exam technique have been excellent, and he has also shared other resources and given guidance on what to do outside lessons. He has a very professional and friendly manner and seems to genuinely care about the outcomes. Would highly recommend. Updated: After working with Graham over an 6 week period prior to his exams my son moved from a predicted grade 5/6 to actually achieving a grade 8 on hit GCSE paper. The aim of recruiting Graham was to help get my son to a solid 6, so we were delighted with this result and credit the work he did with Graham to get him to the higher level of achievement.

Graham has been extremely helpful and the sessions are really constructive. He has supported my son who is studying for his A`levels to understand where his gaps might be and advised on other resources to help him understand steps to take to make real progress. Graham is careful to prepare for lessons which means my son is also in a very focused frame of mind when it comes to lesson time.

James (Mr)

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.
