review(s) for John.
John was a great help during our son`s "A" level revision. He explained things in a clear and well-thought out manner that made quite complex problems easier to understand. He was patient, understanding and welcomed questions where clarification was required. A very knowledgeable, helpful and supportive tutor.
Giving some really helpful tuition to my daughter at A level Chemistry.
John has already started improving my son`s Maths after only a few weeks. He has been very patient and gentle with him. Giving him the time to answer questions without pressure, praising him when he succeeds and clearly explaining when he`s stumped. I have every confidence that with John`s help, my son will continue to improve with his Maths and confidence.
John has helped my son through his AS and A levels. He has been a very positive influence on the son. At the end of the first year - my son`s teachers were doubtful he would get a good grade at AS level, but in fact he got a A. I am very pleased with the work John has done with my son, and would highly recommend him to those looking for a tutor in the local area.
My daughter, Catherine, is comfortable working with John which encourages us that she is benefiting form his tuition.
