Feedback For Adin (4)
Adin is a great teacher! He is very patient, has excellent knowledge of his subjects, and he is very good with teenagers. Adin managed to motivate my son Eduard and finally got him out of his non-productive hole, that 16-year old boys sometimes tend to have. Eduard is making his A-levels in London in a rather challenging environment. Getting up to speed was very difficult for him. Eduard loved the lessons with Adin and improved his results at school significantly . Simin (Eduard`s mother) from Frankfurt, Germany
My son loves his history tuition and it has improved his knowledge of the subject tremendously in a short time.
Adin tutored our son over the summer. He was punctual, responds quickly to messages and flexible about being available at short notice. He tailored lessons to our six year old sons interests using his laptop with videos as incentives for our easily distracted son. As we wanted to work on his handwriting Adin was happy to use the worksheets we provided. He was also good at providing feedback after the lessons.
Adin has been a fantastic support to our 7yo (Y2) during lockdown. Zoning in on his passion for maths and opening him up to a world of history, geography and the dreaded writing (incredibly improved!) we have seen such positive changes to his well being, behaviour and learning. So glad we engaged with Adin
