David is very reliable, pleasant and my daughter has is finding his teaching extremely helpful.
We would strongly recommend David as a tutor.
He's been very patient, clear and detailed with the work that he went through with him and I feel that because of his support that my son was able to achieve the grades in maths that he needed to get on to his college course.
Definite recommendation for anyone who may be struggling with the subject and needs help with clarifying any chapters for any exam board.
Max gained an A* in further maths and a place at Oxford to read Computer Science and Maths. Both Max and I believe neither of these would have been possible without David's help and I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone looking for a maths tutor. Both Max and I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for all his help.
Thank you David!
Here's hoping for good results
All the best
Came incredibly far with David's help.
It has been good working with you. You have come a long way in a short time. Best of luck with the exams!
I would thoroughly recommend him for these subjects!
It has been a pleasure working with you!
You have worked so hard, and deserve a really good result
Thank you very much for your help with Finn's revision. He got an overall A in his A level and a B in his mechanics exam, an area he found particularly tricky. He will be off to UEA next year to study economics.
It wasn't very handy to align my daughter's time and requirements with his availability. There were couple of session when booked late in evening, he turned on so late without any informing.
Arranging the sessions in his place was difficult, because there were some distractions.
But when you can book the time, he is really helpful.
Unfortunately it didn't work for my daughter and her result in M1 wasn't great.
I am sorry the result was not good.
Simin is an intelligent and hard-working student, she deserved better.
It is a pity we were not able to organise a regular tuition slot, and so we were having to fit sessions in around my regular students.
Maybe it is my fault for agreeing to try to fit her in, and often at these late times when I was delayed coming out
Good to work with you
Looking forward to some more when you are ready
