Alan was a great tutor for my daughter`s A level Chemistry, he is very knowledgeable and gave in depth details of various subject areas, he went the extra mile in lessons which were not rushed. He checked she was understanding things before moving on. He was very quick to reply and was able to be very flexible about the times and days for the lessons and we would definitely recommend him. Thank you Alan! 😊;
