Feedback For Sean (41)
A very good tutor. Helped our daughter with her AL maths to get a good grade. Our daughter thought he was great at explaining and definitely helped towards her grade. Highly recommend.
Sean has tutored my son for 3 lessons, to date, in areas he was struggling in his last exams. He says Sean explains everything well and makes the topics easy to understand. He is much more confident in these areas already.
Very good at explaining mathematical concepts, I look forward to having him in year 13!
My son has only just started having lessons with Sean, and has had about eight so far. He is very happy with Sean, and finds him a good teacher and also easy to talk to Sean replies to messages promptly and is on time for lessons Highly recommended
Amazing! Sean was my A-Level Maths Tutor for a couple of months before my exams. I initially struggled with maths and by the time my exams came round I felt so much more confident, he has definitely helped to improve my grade and confidence when answering maths questions. The online lessons really helped me and he was always very quick to answer my questions and help my understanding of certain topics. I highly recommend him to anyone studying A-Level Maths, he had a great understanding of each exam board.
Fantastic tutor who gave my son so much support and inspiration during his A-levels. Recommended.
Sean is a seriously amazing tutor who has struck up a great rapport with son. Son looks forward to every lesson and to being challenged by various mathematical problem solving questions, which they go through, methodically, during the lesson and the various ways it can be approached. Sean is punctual, professional, engaging and passionate about his subject. Highly recommended!
My son is taking A level maths. He is quiet in class and doesnt like to ask for help and consequently has been struggling as the content has become harder. Having an online lesson with Sean each week has been really useful to get more practice and to have things explained in a different way. I would definitely recommend Sean, he is a fantastic tutor.
Very happy with Sean after a month or so of sessions. Our daughter has already gained confidence with her maths, and the having the time with Sean to go over classwork and prepare for tests is already showing benefits in terms of outcomes as well as enjoyment of the subject. Definitely useful sessions which are flexible in content and we feel sure these will make it easier for our daughter to achieve the highest grades, and enjoy maths in the process. Friendly, clearly experienced, full understanding of the syllabus and our needs, pitched at the right level for our sixth-former, and great at explaining the subject - we highly recommend Sean.
Fantastic tutor Very knowledgable
Sean is an Excellent Maths teacher. He takes difficult sums and turns them into easy steps. While also encouraging my daughter to suggest what to do and helping her along the way.
Sean is an excellent tutor. He has an amazing way of breaking things down so that they are understandable.
Sean is an excellent tutor and my child was very happy with his support during year 10, managing to achieve very good results in higher paper mocks tests. He is very punctual, coming well prepared for the sessions and customising the explanations and exercises to the level and needs of the student. Highly recommending him.
Very responsive and my daughter got a lot out of the session

Patient, knowledgable and professional. Punctual, good lesson plan and effective. A great support for my 16 y/o A level maths studies.
First class, my daughter has given good feedback to her progress. She reports the teaching is better than any at her college. Thanks
My daughter is very happy with Sean`s tutoring. My daughter keeps coming back as she is now in a position to achieve a grade 9 due to Sean`s support. She would like to continue with his support into her A- level maths. Thank you.
My son is very pleased with the tutoring he has received from Sean. Thank you very much.
Sean is an excellent tutor. He has really helped my daughter in the final weeks leading up to her A levels, and has really given my daughter confidence and understanding in the topics that she wanted to focus on. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Sean as a tutor.
Our son is really enjoying his lessons with Sean who is supporting him with his A level Maths. Sean is an excellent tutor who is extremely reliable and supportive. Joseph is really pleased with how the sessions are going and would definitely recommend him as a tutor - many thanks Sean!
Sean is very knowledgeable and explains difficult topics well, always providing examples making it easier to learn. I would definitely recommend him.
Super friendly happy tutor who makes the lesson fly with great advice and help. My twin boys get so much out of it! They really are enjoying their sessions with Sean. I cant thank him enough!
Great tutor for GCSE mathematics, explains topics and exam questions very well, and is a nice guy. Currently helping me understand GCSE mathematics past paper exam questions and explains topics really well 10/10
Our son has recently started weekly sessions with Sean for A Level Mathematics as he is in Year 13 and was really struggling to catch up and understand the more complex topics due to having missed so much due to the pandemic. Sean is knowledgeable, patient and explains topics well. He issues relevant notes and practice questions so that the knowledge covered can be embedded after the lesson. He teaches and questions in a way which develops the student`s knowledge and confidence. Even after a relatively small number of weeks we have seen a growth in both confidence and enjoyment of our son`s approach to the subject.
Sean is an excellent Tutor. I have seen my son improve and grow more confident in a subject was struggling with and on the verge of quitting
Sean got straight on with teaching my daughter A level Maths. He has a very positive manner and she likes the way he explains things. I`m sure his lessons will help her with the topics she is struggling with. Well worth paying the introductory fee.
My son feels very comfortable with Sean as his tutor and just three sessions in his confidence his growing. Sean is very supportive and patient.
Excellent tutor. Knows his stuff. Obviously loves his subject and passes this on to his students
Excellent! Sean is very friendly and professional in manner. He asked my daughter about the difficulties she had around Maths and quickly got to understand and know where she was coming from. Sean picked up very quickly that there was a confidence issue more than a knowledge and understanding of Maths. My daughters confidence is growing with a greater understanding of her A level subject, Sean is just what she needed in having someone who understands and to be able discuss Maths with 1 to 1. I would 100% recommend Sean as a Tutor.
