Feedback For Peter (5)
Peter has been brilliant helping our grandson re English GCSE. My grandson says Peter makes the lessons inspiring, engaging and has opened his eyes to the subject! What a change in our lad! Our sincere thanks to Peter.
Peter is a very amenable tutor, he replied very quickly to our enquiry and has started tutoring our son in GCSE English. He is very understanding of our sons ability and needs, and using his knowledge of the new English GSCE, adapting the sessions accordingly. The sessions take place at his home and our son says it is a very peaceful place to work.
Peter is a highly knowledgeable and experienced tutor. Our son is benefitting greatly from his lessons as both his study skills and knowledge of the subject have improved considerably. We recommend Peter highly.
We contacted Peter very easily through this site when our son was struggling with English, mostly due to poor teaching and a lack of connection between teacher and our son at the local school. With just 5 months to the GCSE we knew Peter had his work cut out to get him to a C grade.
Peters friendly approach and honest, knowledgeable and infectious enthusiasm for the subject really struck a chord for our son. Suddenly, aspects of the subject and techniques in answering exam questions that were previously a mystery to him were made available and as his confidence grew so did he results. Our son achieved C grades in both English Literature and English Language, enabling him to progress to A level subjects without the need for retakes and an extra year at 6th form.
Peter has increased my sons
Confidence in English in a matter of weeks.
He has a good manner with him, asking questions and providing and supporting answers.
