Stuart successfully tutored my eldest daughter through her 11+ exams, securing her offers and a scholarship from five of the most competitive state and independent schools in London. He does have very high standards He teaches not just the subject, but also the art of how to learn.Through word-of-mouth he has proved to be a sought after tutor. I have entrusted my second daughter to his care.

Without Stuart's help I would not have got into King's. He guided me through material I previously found mundane and irrelevant. He has opened my eyes to the world of literature and broadened my horizons, and shown me how it is relevant to my study of politics, as it allows me to gauge different viewpoints and voices. He brings his experience from his career at Cambridge to show me how to engage effectively with exams questions, and answer them to get the best grades that I use to this day. Dec 2011
