Here are some recent references:
'We are indebted to Adam as our son's English tutor preparing him at such an excellent level and high standard for Common Entrance. Our son was particularly poor in English struggling to get 52% and C grades. Through being taught by Adam he went on to achieve amazing grades excelling in his English, and is due to start at Eton in September. The head of english at our son's prep school was very short on praise and by the end of Year 8 with Adam's guidance he was awarded A1 in his English papers. Adam's thorough, informative, professional and patient manner has been amazing and without him our son would not be where he is today! We truly cannot sing Adam's praises highly enough and it was one of our best investments ever!'
'Adam is an exceptionally talented and delightful young man and his temperament is ideally suited to tutoring.
He was engaged to prepare our daughter for 11+ Common Entrance, she having been educated in the French system for her entire primary education and had not studied English or Science and her Mathematics had not covered the Common Entrance syllabus.
In only a matter of weeks, Adam managed to tutor our daughter in these three subjects to the required level for her exams. He provided her with a zest for learning and the confidence to take the exams in her stride. The fact that she achieved her highest mark in her weakest subject, mathematics, is testament to this.
We would not hesitate recommending Adam for any tutoring role; his approach is sympathetic and considerate and his teaching method is motivational and fun.'
"Adam has been a huge asset and confidence boost to our son (age 11). Within the last year Adam has helped him with entrance exams and school exams, in particular English, Maths, Latin and Verbal Reasoning. He is incredibly patient and humorous and has helped our son enormously. Adam thinks 'outside the box' and has set our son fun and helpful challenges that have lasted outside the usual tutoring time and have allowed him to work and develop on his own as well. I would certainly recommend Adam wholeheartedly."
'We had Adam as a tutor for my son Federico last October.
My son applied for a scholarship to an UK boarding school which he got.
Adam did a fantastic job with him, we were all very happy.
Adam was very professional and thorough, in addition he stayed with us and he was very pleasant company, a fantastic guest to have.
We all enjoyed to have him over, as did my son, despite the hard work he had to do.
We would strongly recommend him to anybody that needs a tutor.'
'I appointed Adam as a tutor to my daughter in preparation for her GCSEs. Adam taught my daughter a range of subjects, including French, Maths, Chemistry and Physics. Discussions with my daughter about her experience suggest to me that Adam was a very impressive and effective tutor.
Adam showed a wide depth of knowledge gained from his excellent academic background at school and University. You will see from his CV the high standard to which he has consistently worked. Importantly, he was able to convey his knowledge in a non-judgemental and engaging fashion to my daughter. She found him to be considerate and thoughtful, and importantly for a teenager, very approachable and patient in his approach to tutoring.
Adam has excellent communication skills, which, judging from his CV, reflect his close involvement with a range of extra-curricular activities. Having met him personally, I was impressed by Adam's friendly manner and imagine that he would get on well with both students and the family with whom he would be living and travelling. He has a gregarious personality and has experience of drama, which I think would make him a particularly engaging tutor and residential companion.
I recommend Adam to you in the strongest terms. I am confident that he would make excellent use of any opportunity you gave him and would not fail to meet the expectations of a family he was placed with.'
