I have known Dr Desmond Nicholas Bamford since the 1980s and I have always found him to be an ethical tutor. He has assisted me in my theological development and I highly recommend him.
Nicholas Bamford was my own personal tutor as a teenager and led through the stress of GCSE exams, A levels and even assisted me free of charge during my time in university. I can personally guarantee that hiring Nicholas equals astounding results beyond any and all expectation.
Nicholas is currently tutoring my son, in English for GCSE's. Nicholas is very passionate about his subject and is engaging in his lessons. My son is actually enjoying his learning and is now able to write essays and answer exam questions with more confidence. I have no doubt my son will continue to improve and reach a positive result in his exams. It is a pleasure to recommend Nicholas; he has managed to achieve a turning point in my son's learning for which I am most grateful.
