Feedback For Karl (30)
Karl really helped my daughter with her RE GCSE preparation.
Excellent tutor, engaged our son from the get-go and has kept his interest and attention ever since. Highly recommended.
Karl was amazing as a tutor for my year 11 son. He is incredibly knowledgable and very good at sharing content in an easy and relatable manner. He transformed my son`s understanding of RT and improved his confidence with the subject tremendously. We highly recommend him!
Karl has provided tutoring support for my daughter for her A level Religious Studies. Over an intense 6 months, Karl supported her to complete the curriculum and enter evidence for her A level this year. My daughter has very much enjoyed working with Karl and he has been a diligent, engaging and supportive tutor who I highly recommend.
Karl was able to respond very quickly to an inquiry at short notice to provide some last minute tuition to my son for his Philosophy A level. His tuition was excellent and exactly what was needed. I would recommend Karl highly.
Karl was an excellent teacher. My daughter worked on 5 sessions with him and he tailored the teaching to her needs. She felt he explained the topics she needed extremely well and she benefitted a great deal from her teaching sessions with him. She also worked on easy structure and exam prep and also found Karl to be very helpful and knowledgable. We will definitely be requesting more teaching sessions with him in the near future. Thank You Karl. Swetha

My son has found his A level RS tutor sessions very helpful. In a short time, Karl has helped him to understand how to look at an exam question and plan his answer effectively.
Karl has been tutoring my son for approximately half a term. My son has grown in confidence and has a renewed enthusiasm for the subject. Karl is reliable, encouraging and honest in his feedback. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
We are very happy with Karl, he has honed in on exactly the areas where my son needs help and been instrumental in giving him the confidence and self belief he was so lacking. Thank you
Karl is a fantastic tutor and I can`t recommend him enough. His assessment of my daughter within the very first session was detailed and very accurate, identifying strengths, weaknesses and gaps that need to be covered.
He is highly engaging and his teaching style is brilliant... ...my daughter has already learnt so much in the few sessions that she has had and is growing in confidence every week.
We are really pleased with his techniques on answering exam questions and feel that she will be well prepared by the time she sits her GCSE. Thank you Karl :-)
Karl has recently started supporting our son around aspects of his Religion and Philosophy A Level. So far we only positive things to say about his work.

Extremely impressive, my daughter is very happy with her tutor, Not only does he have the knowledge he has the ability to teach in a way that my daughter is able to grasp an nderstanding. In a short space of time my daughter`s confidence is beginning to flourish thanks to Karl. Her knowledge and understanding of the topics is far more clearer than what she has learnt at school. He is one of those teachers that you would call special, they have a natural ability to teach.it is very evident ths tutor goes the extra mile to ensure his students are up there. Very punctual professional friendly and very organised. Thanks to tutor hunt we are are very happy. We are now searching for an A level tutor for English Literature on tutor hunt.

Excellent tutor with in-depth knowledge. Helped my daughter in RS over 3 months. She achieved an A grade in her GCSE this summer which was an excellent result considering she only obtained a C grade in her mocks. Many thanks for your help.
Karl has been a great help to my daughter over the last two months with her a level course. And really built up her confidence leading up to the exam. I would highly recommend Karl for anyone who is searching for a tutor.
Karl has been a fabulous tutor for my son. He really knows his subject and makes it both understandable and interesting. He has really helped my son gain in confidence in the subject and I hope he will continue to help him as he progresses through his course. I can`t recommend him highly enough.
It is still early days but my daughter is finding her time with Karl most helpful. She says that he is very knowledgable and thorough and she enjoys his teaching style.
Karl has provided a fantastic standard of AS and A2 RE tuition to both of our boys for the past couple of months and we`ve seen an exceptional change in not only the grades they are achieving, but their motivation, confidence and approach to learning and revision. Karl is able to adapt his style of tutoring to meet their needs in every way and comes well prepared to every session. His tuition is delivered in a friendly, professional yet patient manner and the boys thoroughly enjoy their sessions. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend him to any potential tutees.
Excellent tutor. Karl was patient and thorough in covering the topics. He also provided very helpful advice on exam technique.
