Y10 GCSE double science. Clem was with us for around 2 terms and David enjoyed his sessions and always learnt something. Clem was able to focus on whichever area of the syllabus we thought would be useful, and I felt that the learning that was going on was good, and was related to the exams. My son did well in his June exams (which where retakes) and I am sure that Clem really helped here. Clem also provided non syllabus help, for example on skills and exam techniques.
Ewan liked him very much, he is dyslexic and Clem found a way to motivate him. Ewan has achieved his target and I think that Clem helped him to think before he answered any questions. I have no doubts about recommending Mr Browne as a tutor and feel free to call me if you need any more information on this matter.
