Many thanks for your help. I found our sessions very useful. It was very beneficial and encouraging, going through the things that I was not very sure about and having you explain it clearly. I liked the way you didn't rush, going at the pace that was needed.
I felt a lot more confident after each session.
Thanks for doing the research in areas we weren't sure about and listening to the things that I wanted to cover.
You were always polite, positive and arrived on time.
We have seen our daughter'sconfidence boosted and she has enjoyed her sessions with you. We areimpressed with your weekly communication preparing for that week'ssession and the amount of effort you put in.
Jim, you have helped me so much. Youare really good at explaining things, very patient and attentive with preparingfor our session together. Thank you for making me more confident inchemistry.
During the short time my daughter was tutored for GCSE Maths I feel she has made huge progress. While all topics were explained in detail my daughter's confidence grew. Jim encouraged my daughter with a great amount of support and this has been noticeable. Not only is she now more confident in tackling tricky questions, my daughter is less apprehensive about her exam. If in need of a tutor, I would thoroughly recommend Jim.
