Oliver was tutoring my 9 year old son for 5 months and has proved to be an invaluable support. Our son was transitioning from the American school system to the British school system, and the new system follows a markedly different, and more advanced, curriculum.
Oliver has helped our son not only to master key concepts but also to remain confident and not to become discouraged by the challenge. I recommend him without reservation to any parent whose child requires additional support in mathematics.
