Testimonial from a student 2018:
'Mrs Brophy has been an excellent tutor and made sure that I was very well prepared before my exam. She gave me all the exam technique necessary as well as giving me all the A* pieces of information which were imperative for my final grade. I cannot recommend Mrs Brophy enough as I know I most definitely would not be able to reach my end grade without her support.'
Judy Brophy is an exceptional tutor, is extremely dedicated and always taught me in a kind and friendly manner, giving me confidence in my ability. We identified my areas of weakness which she then addressed, varying her teaching methods to ensure I fully understood the topics. I could not have asked for a better tutor, without her I could not have moved from a C to an A*. I thoroughly recommend her.
Thank you for my A-level A*. I had trouble grasping concepts and feared falling behind. I could do classwork but didn't understand it: tuition enabled me to grasp most concepts (so essential as exams test understanding and applying knowledge - not reciting from textbooks). She also gave me tips for practical experiments (so often rushed at school).
Tuition bred confidence. I came to enjoy Chemistry! From 2 years tuition I understood and retained all the material I needed.
Judy Brophy is an amazing chemistry tutor with a unique and patient approach to teaching chemistry. I achieved grade C at AS Level so feared that I would be unable to improve enough to achieve an A at A2 but she made it possible. We identified my weaknesses within each topic and with her guidance I was able to grasp and understand the principles of chemistry needed for A2 Level. She made sure that I was fully prepared for my exams and gave me priceless tips and techniques. I thoroughly recommend her.
