Feedback For David (2)
I think its fair to say that my son is a lazy individual who needs pushing hard to put pen to paper and David has not only managed to do that but he has also turned a subject which my son hated into one that he now finds interesting. We often hear, `David said this... and did you know that...` which is great as it means David is doing a great job. My son thinks David is a great tutor and David`s feedback to me is really helpful. David advises me what homework he is setting, what my son has done (or not), which books to buy etc. We would definitely recommend David.
Tutors Response :
Yes Charlie gained a Level 7 for his OCR GCSE Geography A Exam in May 2018, which was excellent and fully deserved.
We have found Mr David very approachable and our son, who is home studying AS / A2 geography, is extremely happy with his progress and the pace of the sessions.
