David was always prompt and reliable and never once let us down. I was very impressed with his teaching methods and he spent time finding out what our son needed to focus on prior to delivering a teaching session. My son completed an English mock exam paper just before his GCSE and had improved from a grade 3 to a grade 6 and I honestly feel this is down to David’s tutorship. Regardless of what grade my son gets for his actual GCSE papers I feel David did an excellent job of guiding him through what was expected and I have no hesitation in recommending him as a tutor.
I would highly recommend him.
On finishing her exam her own words were "I have no idea how I would have gotten through that paper without David's tuition". Although we won't get the results of the exam until August, the fact that she came out of the exam feeling like she did is testament to the hard work David put in with her and the improved understanding of the subject matter because of it.
Thank you David.
