You are hard-working, conscientious and thorough with the children at the heart of all you do Dominic. You take pride in what you do and value support offered. Thank you for working so hard and for actively getting to the root of a challenging group of children. You really have made a difference to them.
Dominic has made a huge impact on the confidence and subsequent progress of my son. He was quick to establish a trusting rapport and swiftly identified the misconceptions and lack of understanding that were impeding Jack's progress in both Literacy and Mathematics. I would recommend him to any parent who would like to help their child progress.
He is an extremely popular tutor, well liked by his students, their parents and his colleagues. Feedback from parents has shown him to be very good with children, younger beginners and teenagers alike. I have received only positive comments all round.
You demonstrate exceptionally high expectations for the children in your care. Some of the concepts were challenging and hard to understand. However, your skilled teaching made it readily accessible and as a result, all children were able to make progress.
I can recommend Dominic for work with children in all contexts.
