« Brian is an excellent tutor. He understands a child's reticence at asking awkward questions, the ones that hate to be asked. He explains all problems, calmly and patiently and is always reassuring in his manner. This approach is ideal for anyone feeling wobbly about maths - he helps to create confidence in the subject and this of course, always contributes towards future success for his students. »

Thank you for all the help and input with my son's GCSE Maths revision over the last few weeks. You are a very kind, helpful teacher who goes all the way and more to help the student gain knowledge in the areas they most need. My son enjoyed every lesson.
Thanks again.

My son has just taken his 11+ and his confidence in Maths and non-verbal reasoning has come on in leaps and bounds. We are hopeful he will pass, but even if he doesn't, the extra confidence will always be a boost for him.
