We decided on a tutor as our 8 year old was beginning to complain that 'she hated maths'. I felt that much of this came from a lack of confidence in her ability and understanding. Joe has been tutoring her for almost a year now and the difference is palpable; her confidence in her lessons at school has been noted by her teacher and her exam results have increased dramatically. However, the most important thing for me is that she secretly quite likes Maths now......
Joe has tutored my 9 year old dyslexic son for a little less than a school year. My son was always previously intimidated by maths and lacking in confidence. Joe's fun approach has been wonderful for us as my son has enjoyed learning maths and has said that Joe helps him hugely. His confidence has grown and, with it, his willingness to try. On his maths exams, he has gone from a D student to achieving 75% this year.
Joe was called in like the cavalry to boost confidence after my son was experiencing a tricky time in school. He made an instant difference with patience, calm and humour. My 9 year old son looks forward to his lesson and he has excelled in his maths class. 'Is Joe coming tonight?' is one of the first questions on Monday morning and although Joe rarely sets homework a book he left recently was immediately read by my son and then read again to a neighbour.
