Feedback For John (5)
John is an absolute fantastic tutor if you have a child who is not confident in their own abilities. My son was really struggling, not because he is inherently bad at maths, but because he had no self confidence at all in his ability to do the questions and became incredibly flustered whenever he came across anything he could not do immediately. I am not totally sure how he did it, but John managed to convince him that it wasn`t actually all that bad, and he should just trust in himself, take a breath, use what he knew and have a go. We received his GCSE results today (foundation paper) and he was 20 marks above the grade 5 boundary which just did not look at all likely a year ago. Huge thanks to John for all his patience from a very happy household.
John has been really helpful in tutoring A level Business and has provided materials to work through in sessions.
John has been an excellent tutor for my daughter. Patient, friendly and knowledgable. A good calm approach to teaching. With Johns tutoring she has improved from a grade 4 gsce to a grade 7 in just a few months.
John has been helping our son with his GCSE Business Studies and we recommend him wholeheartedly. John is a dedicated teacher who is genuinely interested in his students, hardworking and really takes the initiative in terms of planning sessions and helping with exam support. Johns approach is very calm and thoughtful and it has been a pleasure having John support our son.
John is a really good tutor - professional, enthusiastic and personable. Our son loves his lessons with him and continues to make great progress, thanks to John. Highly recommended.
