Mr Nicolson was an excellent Maths teacher who provided private tuition for our son during 2014. These tutoring sessions were very helpful in him achieving good grades in A level Maths & Further Maths as well as STEP exams. Mr Nicolson was punctual, communicated very well and was very pleasant and helpful. He will be of great help to A level Maths students trying to achieve good grades and also performing competitively in university entrance exams like STEP, MAT etc." Amar & Jyothi
