Fantastic teacher! He helped my child to gain confidence and set a strong foundation in maths. Helped in solving challenging problems and time management during the preparation of 11+. Thanks to Ian, my kid succeeded in three main grammar school entrance exams in the Merseyside. I strongly recommend him for the preparation of 11+ and GCSE.

Ian started tutoring math to my son in September 2022. My son`s grades improved from 7 to 9. He really likes sessions with Ian. They are challenging but well balanced and tuned for my son`s abilities. Ian is flexible with session arrangements and this helps a lot because of my son`s sport activities. In addition to the math, Ian also suggested a computing project to my son. Overall I am very happy with Ian as a tutor.
