« Martin is a brilliant tutor with a great sense of humour . Thanks to his help I had offers from leading media schools in London. He gave me a lot of advice for my interviews due to his up-to-date knowledge about media industries. Martin cares a lot about his students and he is always there to help you. During his lesson, you could not get bored. If you want to have a chat about good movies, prepare for your interview or improve your screenwriting skills you can not find a better tutor, trust me. »

Martin has been a great help, he got me to my target grade of a B in A level English literature. As before I was struggling with my course and had a C grade. He made it enjoyable and gave valuable advice on exam technique. Highly recommended!
