I give him 10 out of 10.

**From John ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*I couldn't recommend Brendan highly enough!

**From Alexandra ( /5):**

*(University Physics)*Had one physics grind with Brendan so far, but I'm definitely going back for more, he is brilliant, clears everything up and speaks clearly and makes it all seem so easy and simple. Highly recommend Brendan.

**From Michelle ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Maths)*

**From Conor ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Maths)*Brendan is well organized and targets the session to the student needs, which he delivers in a pragmatic and calm manner.

**From Paul ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Maths)*Very good tutor. My son just completed his mocks exams and said Maths was much more enjoyable now he understands it better thanks to Brendan. Highly recommended.

**From Andrew ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Our son had to repeat one of his maths 1st year exams at NUI. Brendan was excellent, explained the concepts clearly and with enthusisam for the subject. Our son came away from the sessions much happier and confident for the resits. Highly recommended

**From Alison ( /5):**

*(University Physics)*Excellent tutor.

**From James ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Brendan is a great tutor. He broke down trigonometry in a way that I’d never seen before. He made it interesting and fun to learn. He explained how to do the questions and more importantly why we used certain formulas and where the formula came from.

**From John ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*very good tutor, explains the material very well and at a pace that suits you, highly recommend this tutor.

**From Hamada ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Maths)*I could not feel getting more ckear easy information from the few lessons I took with him. He is a good teacher but couldn’t get the best from him.

**From Marguerite ( /5):**

*(Junior Cycle Maths)*My daughter has dyslexia and finds maths very difficult. She has attended grinds with Brendan and is starting to really improve with the one on one tuition. Brendan is very patient and breaks down the processes in a simple understandable way for my daughter. I would highly recommend Brendan.

**From Tomas ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Great tutor,

**From Orla ( /5):**

*(Junior Cycle Maths)*I think Lucia has finally found someone who is as interested in getting the maths right as she is. She gets great enjoyment out of understanding what's happening rather than just following a set of rules for no reason. She loves going to her grinds.

**From Marie ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Maths)*Brendan is an excellent tutor and has a real passion for maths. His has an amazing ability to explain and teach maths so that it is clear to the student. He is very patient and has fabulous communication skills. Hugley recommended!

**From Ronan ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Brendan is very knowledgeable, extremely friendly and easy to get along with. Great Tutor

**From Dylan ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Maths)*We have had a number of tutors for our son over the years, but by far Brendan is head and shoulders above the rest.

He has an amazing ability to get across his excellent knowledge of maths in a way our son can understand and learn perfectly and simply. In addition to that he is a real gentleman to deal with, great communication from the start with excellent time keeping.

We would without question recommend Brendan as a first choice tutor.

Thanks for all your help,

Ann Marie, Denis and Dylan

**From Emma ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Maths)*Hi Brendan, it is so far so good from us as you probably know by the fact that we keep coming back. You are the lifeline preventing Emma from drowning in a difficult subject.

Kind Regards,

Tracy Morris

**From Anne ( /5):**

*(Junior Cycle Maths)*Complete brilliance. Takes the complicated and makes it simple. We highly recommend Brendan. He always gives extra time, and is really interested in the student doing well. My daughter ,senior cycle, and my son, junior cycle, say he takes a different approach and breaks it down so you have no doubt about where to go. Excellent tutor, we highly recommend him, flexible to meet anytime too…

**From Aaron ( /5):**

*(Primary Maths)*

**From Jessica ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Maths)*Couldn't have had better help. I learn't more in a couple of lessons than I ever have in school. I could not recommend Brendan enough. He had an excellent way of explaining things and I came out with a confidence for maths that I never thought I'd have!

**From Alan ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*I couldn't rate Brendan highly enough. I am extremely happy with the results and would strongly recommend him for tuition at any level. His knowledge and method of explanation are second to none.

Thanks to Brendan I have achieved and now understand more than I ever thought was possible in such a short space of time. He is genuinely dedicated to achieving the best possible results for you and goes above and beyond his obligations to reach that goal.

**From Paul ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Great tutor. Would strongly recommend brendan. Easy to talk to and never cancelled or let me down.

**From Karl ( /5):**

*(Junior Cycle Maths)*The most important thing that Brendan has given my son is a confidence that he can understand maths. His enthusiasm and obvious interest in the subject is obvious and brings the subject to life (not something I would have thought possible with a subject such as maths). My son thinks he is "so cool"!

**From Cormac ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Brendan is excellent teacher and brilliant to get on with.

**From Michael ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*very good and understanding, big help to me! thanks

**From Belinda ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Physics)*I gained much more confidence answering past paper questions. Brendan was very good at explaining things and I felt much more secure in my mathematical understanding.

**From William ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Was very helpful explaining problems and situations with questions relating to applied mechanics. Made a mock exam for me which was extremely helpful. Overall very nice Man and very helful

**From Stephan ( /5):**

*(Senior Cycle Physics)*Brendan is a brilliant tutor. I came to him with absolutely no background in physics and not having looked at maths for 18 years, and a short time to study for the GAMSAT (graduate entry to medicine test, which includes physics as about 20% of the science section). He has been able to make a huge amount of information perfectly clear to me in that very short amount of time, showing great patience whenever I failed to understand something or needed background maths explained to me before I could begin to comprehend a physics concept. He also rose splendidly to the challenge of doing tutorials over Skype, since I live too far from him to physically see him on a regular basis.

I would recommend Brendan most heartily to anyone who is having difficulties with physics, needs to learn physics very fast from scratch, or wants to perfect their understanding of physics, especially in the context of a very important exam studied for under time constraints. Further, he had not previously been familiar with the GAMSAT, but has gone to some effort to research their testing level, range, question structure, and individual idiosyncracies in order to do his best for me.
