Feedback For Bryn (27)
Very patient and friendly tutor.
My son got a 2/3 in his mocks at the end of year 10 so we decided to get him a tutor for year 11. Bryn was a fantastic find on Tutor Hunt. He is professional and taught my son what he needed to do to improve his writing and how to take the exams. He made the sessions fun and engaging, so much so that even though my son hated studying English at school he looked forward to his sessions with Bryn. In the 9 months of tutoring he made fantastic progress and even started to enjoy English. He completed the work for Bryn without complaining and even did extra for his teacher at school. This has resulted in him getting a 5 and 6 in his English GCSEs. We would highly recommend Bryn as a tutor.
I want to take a moment to express my 100% satisfaction with the online English tuition Mr Bryn has provided to my daughter for her GCSE exams over the past two years. His punctuality and knowledge of the covered subjects have significantly impacted her learning journey. I greatly appreciate how he tailored each lesson according to my daughter`s skill level, ensuring she received the appropriate guidance and support for her progress. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking English lessons. Your expertise and teaching style have proven invaluable, and I am confident that others would benefit greatly from his teaching. I express my sincere thanks for his outstanding commitment to teaching my daughter.
Finding an exceptional tutor for my son was crucial, and I am delighted to have discovered Bryn. From the very beginning, Bryn has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to my son`s GCSE English exam success. Even though English is not my son`s first language, he was much more confident before his exam, thanks to Bryn. Now we are waiting for the exam results :)
Amazing tutor, despite not being in education for many years. He has made the prospect of me taking my gcse this November infinitely less scary. Very engaging and makes learning seem easy
Only been a few weeks, but my son is happy with the lessons so far.
Bryn has proven to be exactly what my Y11 needed to boost his confidence and grades in both English Language and Literature. Completely reliable, no cancelled lessons and easy to communicate with, Bryn sets and reviews homework weekly. He clearly understands what is needed and has built a good rapport, which is impressive when tutoring online.
Bryn is fantastic! He has been tutoring my Year 11 twins since September. One of them has already gone from predicted grades of 5 and 5 in language and literature to predicted grades of 8 and 7! The other from predicted grades of 4 and 5 to 5 and 6! So pleased. They love the sessions and their confidence has grown hugely! I couldnt be happier.
Bryn has been absolutely wonderful for my Y10 son. My son has really struggled this year with high levels of anxiety in school and as he made the move back to classes, Bryn has built his confidence and enthusiasm for English in such a short period of time. This has contributed hugely to the smooth transition back into the English classroom!!. Even my son says he is "so nice and so effective" - thank you Bryn.
I was very happy and relieved with the progress my son made under the guidance of Bryn. English was far from his favourite subject and having scored a combined 2 for English at the end of Year 10 with a forecast a 4 for his GCSE, my son improved to a 6 for Literature and 7 for Language. Bryn was certainly invested in the outcome. He delivered one or two well-deserved nips for lack of effort yet despite that, once the exams were out the way, I was surprised to hear that the subject was actually alright. Praise indeed.
We have started tutoring with Bryn recently. Bryn is an excellent tutor. He is very knowledgeable in terms of subject and the exam board my daughter`s school is using. He is able to motivate her to focus on a subject that is rather difficult for her. There is always a smile when is time for Bryn`s tutoring and my daughter says because she feels less scared of her English GCSE because of his explanations of language and literature. It seems like a very promising start!
So far my daughter has had two lessons with Bryn. His approach has been engaging, supporting and instructive, and she really looks forward to the lessons, and the homework, and feels that they are helping her with English as a subject.
Bryn has been tutoring my daughter for five weeks, in preparation for her GCSEs this summer. We`ve found him to be both friendly and very professional. He is organised and teaches very thoroughly, with lots of student participation. She is enjoying her lessons and feels that Bryn has really helped her to understand what she needs to do to answers specific questions. I`ve noticed that, rather than fretting about how to get started, she`s now willing to get on and write, knowing that Bryn will give feedback on what was good and areas for improvement. This is helping to build her confidence. I would definitely recommend Bryn as an English tutor.
Never did I think my 15 year old son would be so enthusiastic about having an English tutor but he really loves the lessons and gets so much out of them. There is no complaining on the day and afterwards he goes through what he has learnt. He has easily gone up a couple of grades already. Bryn is very easy to get on with according to my son and and explains things clearly, making everything easier to understand. I would not hesitate to recommend Bryn.
Bryn is an amazing tutor, but one of the bests that one should be very lucky to be taught by. I had many tutors before but no one was as lovely and as understanding as Bryn. While he is a very knowledgeable and skilful tutor, he is very kind and compassionate, as well. He feels responsible about his students. For him, his students learning, satisfaction and wellbeing comes first, and he puts himself as a tutor second. For example, once we had to cancel two sessions without an advance notice, which was very unprofessional from our side. We then were happy to pay for his time as it was absolutely our fault. Despite this, he kindly offered another session, while he did not have to do so. I am aware this quality is not something that usually can be found in other tutors. He is tutoring my son at the moment and we will continue with him as long as it is required for my son to achieve his target grade.
From the first two lessons with Mr. Bryn they have been so worthwhile! Mr. Bryn has an amazing way of breaking things down so that they are understandable, and always keeping it light and fun. I am happy that I found him as a tutor. Would definitely recommend his lessons to students who need tutoring In English.
Bryn is an excellent tutor and very helpful for my son. He keeps me informed and understands what my son needs to focus on for his GCSE english.
Focused, engaging and knowledgeable Dylan looks forward to the lessons with Bryn

Thank you for this feedback. I really enjoyed helping your son with his English!
We booked a few sessions with Bryn to look at AQA English Language GCSE questions. He gave good practical advice on how to approach the different types of question, which proved useful in the real assessment. Bryn is a careful, calm teacher who went step by step through the key things, including exam structure and how the questions are marked, not assuming what the student would already know. For us it sometimes felt a bit slow, but the pace might be perfect for someone who was less confident or doesn`t like to feel rushed.
We only booked about a dozen lesson with Bryn - for last minute GCSE English Lang and Lit revision. My son found the lessons very helpful and I found Bryn to be professional, friendly and easy to deal with. He was 100% punctual and reliable. Would highly recommend.
My son is in Yr10 . His quite hard to please, he will complain if he is not happy of the teaching method. I told Mr Bryn If he can start teaching GCSE lessons to my son until he becomes confident to his weak lessons. Mr Bryn method of teaching is in line to ny son school curriculum and they`re doing it in dashboard that can be easily corrected rather than writing on the paper, well executed and fun to learn. Up until now his with Mr Bryn, his happy and excited every session. Mr. Bryn is an excellent teacher/tutor, I can recommend him 💯;%
My son is in Year 7 and having tutoring with Bryn to improve his writing skills. Bryn makes learning enjoyable and my son is now getting good grip into creative writing. He now starts writing more descri ptive essays using different sentence structures and better word choice.
