Enriketa raised her maths grade from C to A; you can too, ask me how!
I believe the most efficient approach is the most engaging one. It is important to appreciate that students have different attitudes towards learning and hence tutoring should be about helping them to get the best out of their education through discovering their potential and developing interest in the subject.

He was really very professional, very well organised, used a systematic approach to help her and had to dedicate quite a few sessions for her in less than two weeks which was very helpful being a last minute request.
I am really impressed with Sam's approach, organisation, knowledge and professional attitude.
He adapts very easily between the different ages and finds the right way of encouragement and firmness with all three of them. Sam comes well-prepared for classes and gives the kids a good amount of homework. He approaches our tutoring with much more rigour than previous tutors: for example with the 15-year old, he has a good view of where she needs to be for GCSEs and then, taking into account where she stands at the moment and what is covered in school, is pushing her beyond her comfort zone to cover areas of the curriculum which she is not confident in. Sam has a strong academic background; it is clear that he worked hard as a student and expects the same from our children. Sam’s engaging character works like a magnet and has helped our children approach learning with more enthusiasm.
Sam is always on time and very easy to talk to. Am happily recommending him.
He spent his personal time to clarify some points for me. I would definitely work with him again.
He really enjoys each tutor session.
I would highly recommend.
