I have a A level biology student from Bedford Modern who was struggling to get an A in her end of topic tests, she got an A in her biology and is off to study Vet med at Liverpool.
I have an A level biologist who is retaking year 12, she failed year 12 last year but is now achieving A or B in her end of topic tests, (results are in: A!! Off to do Physiotherapy)
I tutored young man in both geography and biology, his confidence improved massively since our lessons began and his grades are improved as a result. I spent a lot of time going through exam papers with him which highlighted areas that he needed help with as well increasing his familiarity with the exam questions. (He got an A and a B)
I tutor 2 sisters who are now in year 10 and 13, I also tutored their sisters all the way through GCSE and A level, they are both at University now.

Thankyou so much for helping Rhianna. She got 3 A* in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. You helped her gain confidance in all of her subjects.
I went to Amanda for tutoring A level with Biology. When I first went to her I lacked confidence and I was failing in every area of the course. Amanda didn't seem fazed by this. Week by week I gained in confidence and went from U grades to A grades in some of my module exams. She could identify my strengths and weaknesses and worked with me to try and improve.
I am now studying Biological sciences at Aberystwyth University. Without Amanda's help I wouldn't have got to where I am today.
Pryanka has enjoyed the last three years of tutoring with you and is well on her way to achieving A* in her GCSE's.
