I have no hesitation at all in recommending Neil. He tutored our son over an 18 month period and we found him to be knowledgeable, reliable, helpful and committed to the goals we had. My son enjoyed his company and benefitted from his good counsel.
Neil follows up every session with an informative e mail which was always helpful and appreciated.
Neil is a fantastic tutor. He always gives valuable feedback on essays, hitting the nail on the head with his advice, and has had a big impact on the way I think when I write. I have stuck with him since A-levels to MA level and have been satisfied every time. I would recommend him whole-heartedly!
We have used Neil for tutoring for over 2 years now. He is a very valued and trusted tutor. Highly professional and knowledgeable. My son’s A Level grades improved massively and through this he secured his place at Durham university. He has been invaluable in supporting him at University where he gained great results for his first year. We cannot recommend Neil enough.
