Highly recommend Tavis as a tutor. He is knowledgeable, engaging, enthusiastic and great at breaking down and explaining information. I’ve been really stressed with my quantitative research but after one lesson I feel so much better already and look forward to our next lesson.

Tavis is a great tutor! He provided me with a highest quality feedback on my thesis that helped me to improve. He is knowledgable, great professional and very good communicator. I personally highly recommend Travis to anyone, as his approach and help was invaluable!

Tavis helped my daughter in the last few weeks leading up to her Sociology and Psychology A`level. She got an A* and A! He was great!

Alison (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

We can`t recommend Tavis highly enough. My daughter was in need of help, both in terms of help with the A level course content and also her confidence. Tavis provided both with his infectious enthusiasm for the subject. He was quick to respond to enquiries and entirely reliable. My daughter got an A which would not have happened without Tavis`s help.

Tavis, what can I say about Tavis? I mean, where do I start? His teaching methods are absolutely brilliant. The best tutor I have ever come across, his personality, charisma, work ethic, making you understand the work, is second to none. I would most definitely recommend Tavis as a tutor. It was a pleasure working with him!

Absolutely fabulous support and advice, not only during tutoring sessions but on additional reading and generally in building my son`s confidence in the subject

Elle (Miss)

5/5 Rating

Tavis has been an outstanding tutor! In a few short months he has taken me from a U in psychology to a B and has reignited my love for this subject. He is very kind and genuinely wants all of his students to succeed. He is always punctual and hardworking and he even brings his own very useful resources to further help his students. He has often marked my practise exams and given me extremely useful feedback in order to help me know how to improve. I am very glad to have hired Tavis as I know I would have struggled to complete my exams without him.

Tavis has recently started tutoring our daughter in psychology. From the first time we met him, he has been full of enthusiasm about the subject, and has thought creatively about how to pitch the lessons to suit our daughter`s requirements. He is easy to communicate with, and extremely reliable.
