Feedback For Andrew (16)
He is very good with my son. He encourages him to do better
Andrew worked with our son Matthew for a number of months to improve his confidence and improve techniques in both English Language and Literature. We certainly saw an improvement in results and Matthews confidence through the tutoring which due to the virus we had to cut short. With a friendly, bubbly approach Matthew enjoyed the lessons and Andrew was also quite motivational whilst being realistic
All I can say is .. Andy is brilliant and what a lovely person. My daughter hated English before Andy came along; his teaching style meant she was fully engaged, understood and actually enjoyed the sessions. Her English skills have really improved and we could not have asked for a better tutor for her.
Our son has had only a few sessions with Andy and already he feels more confident and more interested in English. Andy has a great way of explaining things and gets him well engaged with the work. Top choice in tutor we feel, thank you Andy!
Andrew is tutoring my son for his English GCSEs. He is a very capable tutor who is always prepared and knows what the examiners are looking for. He has really engaged my son and breaks down the lessons so as not to overload him. My son had been feeling overwhelmed but now seems to be coping well.
Andrew is an excellent tutor. His fantastic approach, knowledge and dedication helped my son greatly with his exam.
As some of the other review have already stated, Andrew is very skilled in breaking down the GCSE into digestible, bite sized chunks with lots of practical exam advise.
More than this, Andrew is the most encouraging, motivating individual you cope hope to have around your child. I can`t recommend highly enough.
I can highly recommend Andrew. I dont think my son would have passed his GCSE English without Andrews calm, patient and motivating tutoring.
With regard to revision, he helped my son to strip things down and that gave him the focus he needed - before I think my son was intimidated by the whole thing and didnt know where to start.
Andrew explains Shakespeare and C19th literature thoroughly; in a way that my son could relate to and find interesting.
Im so pleased we found Andrew and will be contacting him again when its my daughters turn to take her GCSEs.
Andy is an amazing tutor who significantly helped our son before his GCSE English exam. He is a genuine, sincere teacher and we as a family have the utmost respect for him, he is the best tutor my son has ever had.
My youngest son has now started his English journey with Andy because he is so good.
Honestly the best tutor, Such great advice, such a great teacher. I started very late being tutored with my grades at a 2 and he managed to help me to get a 5 at Gcse! I am so great full for his help and I highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of an English tutor!!!
Tutors Response :
Thank you Peter!
Kind words, but you did all the work!
Andrew is a very attentive tutor and in a short time I am seeing improvements with my sons work already.
Andrew is a great help to our son - he is very prepared and knowledgeable. He has been a fantastic boost of support and confidence to our son before he takes his GCSE`s. We would highly recommend him.
Andrew has been tutoring our daughter at GCSE level for a couple of months. Our daughter struggles to express her thoughts/ideas and Andrew has been working with her to improve this and also her confidence levels. So far we are very happy with Andrew and would recommend him to others looking for English tuition. I have marked the site down one star as I have struggled to upload this review.
Andrew has been great in developing my daughters confidence, and is very patient. I would highly recommend him.
Andy tutored my 17 year old son for a resit English GCSE language in the summer, he engaged my son well, getting down to his level. My son was positive about the tutoring, reporting that he explained things in a way he could understand and apply this to his writing skills in preparation for the exam. Andy was always punctual, prepared with resources for the lessons and was flexible, fitting in additional lessons leading up to the exam. I would definitely recommended him.
Andrew is an inspiring tutor with superb knowledge and a excellent manner. He has turned around my daughter`s attitude to english literature, to the point of enjoyment and given her confidence in own ability. He is pleasant, reliable and overall a nice guy.
