AQA History A Level
I would like to say a massive thank you to Ian, who is an experienced, friendly tutor and he has helped me to deepen my understanding of complex content of A2 history and boost my confidence in essay writing right up to my history exam (even my history teacher at school was surprised how much I have improved in less than one month.) The only thing regret is that I wish I Ian earlier! Definitely recommend to anyone who is not confident in their essay writing skill or improve their understanding of the content.
Great work and Ian is a good guy easy to talk to very friendly
