Feedback For Mark (18)
I just finished my A-Level exams, and I have to say that Mark`s Physics tutoring was amazing. I really appreciate his support and friendliness throughout the learning process. The lessons were well-organized and really helped me understand the concepts. Mark`s expertise in explaining any difficult chapters, even when I didn`t tell him beforehand, was incredibly valuable in deepening my understanding. He`s a patient and understanding tutor, and I highly recommend him!
Mark has tutored our son for the last 5 months in the build up to his A Level Physics exams. Mark was very nice and extremely knowledgeable, and he enabled the lessons to be focused on the areas which needed to be addressed the most. With regards improvements, our sons scores in past paper practices have almost doubled since working with Mark. The work Mark has done with our son has made a pronounced difference to his confidence in the subject and reignited his positivity for Physics. We would highly recommend Mark as a Physics tutor. Thank you Mark for all your help.
Mark was really helpful. I was able to choose which topics to go over in the lessons and he helped me develop the knowledge in the areas which I struggled with, until I had the confidence to attempt past paper questions (with his guidance if needed) to prepare me for the exam
Super tutor, very flexible. Boosted my daughters confidence. Would recommend.
Mark has really helped my gain a better understanding of my physics course and helped me to understand complex situations in simple terms, making me feel more confident about my physics knowledge.
Mark is really helping me with my physics - he explains really well. He is really friendly and easy to talk to.
Mark is a very engaging tutor with excellent subject knowledge. He is currently helping our son with any gaps in his learning in preparation for his A levels this year. Mark is able to tailor his teaching to focus on the key areas needed by our son, and ensures that he understands the lessons being taught before moving on.
Mark has really helped build my daughters confidence and feel in control of her A level Physics learning.
Mark has been an excellent Physics teacher, and you can tell he is genuinely passionate about the subject. He can easily break down any topic as per the student`s need. The lessons have been adaptable, and I feel comfortable asking more holistic questions about topics I would be nervous asking in class. He is adaptable and allows space for the student`s unique progression towards understanding challenging concepts. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking for a Physics tutor.
Mark is professional, extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Physics. He explains the concepts well and my son is actually looking forward to his tutorials in preparation for his A levels. Overall, we are very pleased and would highly recommend this tutor.
Mark is an amazing tutor, he has helped my son understand some difficult topics in physics, my son really enjoys his lessons and really has benefited from them. Thank you Mark
Mark was genuinely the most helpful and knowledgeable tutor I could have ever hoped for, for my son. His in depth knowledge and excellent teaching skills really helped my son to grasp some of the more difficult concepts and not only by just simplifying but also by expanding, explaining in detail, and building on his knowledge and ability in a way that only a very good tutor would know how to do. I cannot recommend Mark highly enough, I was extremely pleased and impressed. Thank you Mark. Excellent! Also, my son really respected, liked and enjoyed learning with Mark. Great guy, very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. 5 stars, well earned, and very much deserved.
Mark tutored my daughter during the last few months of her Physics A level. He is patient and was happy to repeatably cover the topics she found most difficult. She found the way he covered exam questions particularly helpful as she said he explained them in a way that made it easy for her to answer similar questions. I found communication with Mark very good, he replied promptly and provided feedback on progress when I requested it.
Mark is an excellent and patient tutor. Since the first lesson Mark has increased my son`s understanding in A-level physics. I would highly recommend Mark.
Mark has helped me greatly with my physics a-level. He is clear and concise and very knowledgable. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend him.
I am am currently studying A level physics and needed some extra help Mark is very friendly and approachable, and makes me feel comfortable to ask questions that I would normally feel nervous to ask in class in case they were seen as silly questions. He is very patient and takes the time to thoroughly explain and checks that I understand before moving on. I would be very happy to recommend Mark.
My daughter got a grade 7 in her mock test, and has just started tuition with Mark. Only after 2 lessons, She fully understands some topics that she struggles with before. Mark explains how to apply the concept to answer the question, not just write what she knows and irrelevant stuff with the exam point. More importantly Mark`s knowledge and his experience makes my daughter feel confident now, and hope she can achieve a grade 9 in this summer GCSE.
My daughter has been having Physics A Level tutoring with Mark for around a month. Mark is very knowledgable and has provided excellent guidance during this time. My daughter feels she can ask Mark anything, hes very approachable and has great communication. Shes looking forward to concentrating more on exam questions, techniques and tips going forward. Also how to take the information gleaned from the modules and apply this to the exam questions. Mark is onboard and is ready to help. Thank you Mark!
