The most dedicated teacher I have come across. Mr Furze made the lessons so lively, interesting and interactive. I studied Macbeth and To Kill a Mockingbird.

I have studied under Mr. Tony Furze for more than two years, and he has a brilliant skill of making the subject very interacting and fun to learn by introducing various methods. He is a great teacher and I would recommend him because he does effort to whatever work he does or whatever subject he teaches.

Sir Tony is one of the best English teachers I had. He’s one of those teachers that not only deliver the concept but do so in an interactive and intersting manner that makes the world of literature come alive. He has the ability to hone your skills and bring the best out of a person. My A* in English literature and language is due to his dedicated and persistent efforts. He’s highly recommended.

He is the best teacher i had so far! Such an amazing teacher his way of teaching oh my god!!! Marvellous, nobody can beat him . He taught me the things i was unaware and in such a way that a student will not forget. His lessons are so perfect that the student doesn't have to revise his lesson after it . I would recommend Sir Tony as he is the best whether its english or Pakistan studies or some other subject nothing can beat him. Through him I am here able to converse in english fluently in front of everyone. Highly recommended

He taught me for O Level English Literature and helped me get an A*. He has the ability to make you love literature as we explore the depths of the characters, themes and the language tools. He is smart, friendly and helpful. He has the experience to immediately identify a student's strengths and areas that have room for improvement, which helps a lot to improve one's performance. I would highly recommend him to all learners who are struggling with English Literature.

Mr Toni taught me back in 1990s in my school years in Pakistan .He taught us English and made us excell in our GCSE o levels back then ! He has long years of experience in teaching and can be totally recommended!

Mr Furze taught English as a first language, literature in English, and geography at my school. He is a very dedicated teacher and has an exceptional gift for teaching.
English was a second language to the students in my class and he taught us to appreciate and love this foreign tongue. All of my classmates sat for English as a first language for their GCE exams.
I still marvel at all the worksheets and unique classes he designed.
Under his tutelage I learned to have a critical approach to classical works and to enjoy the finer points in literature. To him I owe not only 3 A*s but also a lifetime of happy reading and writing.

I highly recommend Professor Furze to anyone struggling to grasp English literature. He’s patient and thorough and has a real passion for teaching the subject. If can teach me to love Emily Brontë and understand iambic pentameter, I assure you he can teach you anything.
