My daughter has really benefited from her lessons with Firat. She came into the lessons with specific issues to discuss and Firat was able to clarify them with ease. I would highly recommend Firat if you have issues with your Physics GCSE.

Firat has been so so helpful in helping me with my biology for an exam I am soon to take. He makes sure to cover everything in detail and asks lots of questions to ensure my understanding is thorough. He encourages me to answer exam questions and guides me to the right place to find them. Firat remains professional whilst also being very friendly and approachable, I am not afraid to ask him ‘silly questions’ or ask him to explain something for me again, he’s so patient and I couldn’t recommend him enough.

Tutors Response :

Thanks Rebecca, always happy to help :-)

Firat has been an excellent tutor, he explains everything in detail, which means that I can recall this information in exams as I understand topics to a greater depth. Firat also sets exam questions after each session, which allow me to test my understanding and solidify my knowledge, and is quick to respond if you have questions to ask. Overall, a very positive experience, and would definitely recommend.
