« Leigh is not only a real expert in his teaching knowledge and application, but has developed such a good rapport with my kids that they always look forward to their LAMDA lessons with him. So far, all three of my children have achieved nothing but Merits and Distinctions for their exams, which, in no small measure, is directly attributable to Leigh's dedication and hard work. »

Leigh is not only a real expert in his teaching knowledge and application, but has developed such a good rapport with my kids that they always look forward to their LAMDA lessons with him. So far, all three of my children have achieved nothing but Merits and Distinctions for their exams, which, in no small measure, is directly attributable to Leigh's dedication and hard work.

Akash - Harrow

I have worked with a few different tutors, but Leigh has a way of making me learn in a much more intelligent, fun and practical way without being patronizing and is always making me laugh and enjoy his lessons.

Anita

Such a talent. Leigh offers us drama, piano and singing lessons and is never at a loss for making each subject lively and thoroughly engaging. We have seen cinsiderable improvement in our son's confidence to stand up and perform un front of a crowd and his examination successes have been outstanding. Thank you Leigh.
