We only had two lessons with Andy (before lockdown!) but must say my son developed a new found passion for GCSE Biology! Andy is extremely knowledgeable and personable and relates his teaching to real life examples making it more fun and interesting. Amazing teacher all round!

Andy has made a real difference to our daughter`s confidence ahead of her Biology A Level. She looks forward to her lessons each week.

Andy has worked wonders. My son had switched off completely from Biology saying he bitterly regretted choosing it for A level. Within minutes of meeting him Andy was demonstrating in the most entertaining way how much biology is related to the real world. My son now really looks forward to his sessions.Andy is gentle and very humourous but also constantly teaching and testing. A truly skilled and inspiring teacher who has switched my son back on to Biology.Thank you Andy.

Andy has been a breath of fresh air for my daughter studying A level Biology. From the moment he arrived he had her engaged (and her younger sister who is studying GCSE Biology). He speaks in plain English, knows his stuff and is a natural teacher. I can`t recommend him enough.

Before my daughter started her science lesson with Andy I`ve never seen her being so confident in science as she is now. Andy is an extraordinary teacher, wonderful and a miracle.

Andy uses kinesthetic teaching methods which is perfect for my daughters learning style and key to her memory retention. With only 4 sessions under her belt she has covered the majority of the biology GCSE syllabus and is ready to tackle past papers. Fantastic!
Thank you Andy :)
