Feedback For William (13)
William is an excellent tutor. He helped my son to gain his confidence in History and able to get a 7 GCSE in history within 7-8 months period. He taught my son how to do exam and focus on important areas. Thank you again..
Will is organised and knows his subject inside out. He has a great rapport with my son and makes his history tutorial feel like a discussion between individuals rather than a hard slog. He knows the syllabus and what examiners are looking for and my son finds this helpful to improve upon how he answers his questions/technique. My son looks forward to his lessons with Will which are positive and inspiring. Thank you Will
William was helpful , proactive and good and engaging with my son
William is a wonderful tutor who we can highly recommend. Our son is enjoying his tuition (History IGSCE) and has gained great confidence in his ability thanks to William.
My son is very happy with Mr William, he says he learns a lot also enjoys the lessons.
My daughter thoroughly enjoys her lessons with Tutor William! She says that his lessons for History IGCSE exam preparation are engaging, encouraging and leading to significant progress. My daughter now feels very confident about her prospects in the examinations, and her preparations are going very well. Big `thumbs up`!
Very clarified and magnificent History teacher!
Thorough and encouraging with a deep knowledgable about exam process
Outstanding tutor tailoring each lesson superbly, understanding learning style and exam specifications. Both A level and GCSE. Built a brilliant rapport with the kids and in fact they enjoyed each lesson thoroughly. Could not recommend enough.
William is a wonderful tutor! He is tutoring our son in history at GCSE level. William is dedicated, detail oriented and makes the sessions individualised to our sons needs, extremely interesting and fun. We are very happy!
I contacted Will in January 2018 after my daughter`s mock exams as she struggled with History achieving a Grade 3 and clearly needed support. Will is an outstanding teacher who inspired my daughter to love History and develop a deeper understanding of the topics enabling her to contribute with confidence in class. Will was professional and accommodating offering support as and when needed. He never overloaded her with homework and was mindful of her commitment to other subjects. My daughter got Grade 7 in her GCSE which is a fantastic achievement in such a short space of time. As a teacher myself, I would highly recommend Will as a tutor. Thank you so much Will.
Will has extensive knowledge and a caring and friendly attitude. He tailored the sessions to my sons specific needs, (he has dyslexia) building his confidence and understanding of the topics as well as developing his ability to answer exam style questions across each of the different papers. He provided excellent additional resources and was always available to answer questions and provided extra support outside of the sessions. As a result my son achieved a History GCSE grade two levels higher than was expected. We would have no hesitation in recommending Will as a tutor.
