Oliver's smile after receiving one to one tuition with Charles

by Sara

Oliver from Derbyshire has recently received tuition from Charles to help him with GCSE Maths. Below is Oliver's feedback!

"I was struggling to understand my teacher at school. When I asked for help he didn't seem to be able to explain in a way I could understand. In my January mock exam I obtained a grade E and Charles told my parents it was unlikely I would do much better in the June exam so he advised against sitting the higher paper. I know that a lot of universities ask for Grade C or above for courses so I was determined to do better.

I learnt more in my first lesson with Charles than I did in a full term with my school teacher! I often felt embarrassed to ask questions in front of my classmates at school but it didn't matter between myself and my tutor. I've gained a lot of confidence in my abilities.

Charles was very patient and explained the concepts in a way I could understand. He also provided exam technique tips so I knew which questions to focus on.I'm not sure what I want to study at university but I do know that with my B grade I can apply for a wider choice of courses and universities, which will increase options for my future career. I will definitely ask my parents to arrange a tutor again for my AS subjects if I need extra help."
