Alan has tutored my daughter for several weeks now and she already is building confidence. She says Alan is really great at helping her understanding and she gets a lot out of her sessions.

Unfortunately due to ill health my daughter did not proceed after the first lesson. Alan answered all emails promptly and came on time for the first lesson. He seems to have good knowledge of the curriculum and his own resources from his own teaching experience.

Alan has built up our daughters confidence in only a matter of weeks. She finds his teaching style very refreshing and is once again enjoying Physics A Level. Alan is definitely the best `fit` for us. Always polite and punctual and our daughter is happy once again. I would happily recommend.

To early to be asking for feedback. Will not be able to give meaningful feedback for a year when I will consider the status of my grandson`s knowledge, how Alan interacts with Josh and reliabily in keeping appointments being on time etc. Ask me again in sat June
