Lizzie (adult learner) passed her Edexcel GCSE Maths, with a C grade (her target was a C, as she needed this for her career plans).
Ryan (now in 6th form) achieved his C grade in Edexcel GCSE Maths.
My three Year 11 students gained A, A, and B in GCSE Maths - all higher grades than their schools predicted for them.
A year 11 student learned GCSE French with me - got a B. Earlier in the year, her school had to be persuaded even to put her in for the Higher paper.
Three year 11 students learned GCSE Maths with me. One got a B (predicted C but needed a B for first choice 6th form). One got a C (got Es in mocks).
One student achieved an A in GCSE French. One achieved a C in GCSE Maths.
One of my students achieved a 5 in GCSE Maths.
From a recent thank-you card from Harry:
Thank-you very much for all of your help and support over the last couple of years. You have helped me regain my confidence in maths and helped me to enjoy the subject again. Without your help and guidance I never would have felt so composed or confident in myself and the subject when I stepped into the exam hall.
From the mother of a year 11 student who was worried she would not manage a C in her GCSE French: Hi Gareth she got a B!! - I think she got an A on one of her papers and a c on the other. She is so pleased. I can't thank you enough.
From Edd, who was predicted a C at school but needed a B for his first choice 6th form: Hi Gareth it's Edd. The hours every week have paid off! B in Maths for me! Just wanted to say thank you for all your help and your support.
