Tom taught our son for a year and was exceptional in every way. His teaching was clear, hugely helpful and always easy to understand. He has a delightful manner, an incisive brain and was always extremely efficient and reliable . Tom sparked off a love of maths in my son which is quite extraordinary to witness - I cannot recommend him more highly.
I found Tom to be very personable and his enthusiasm inspired my daughter to develop a real interest in both the study of Latin as a language but also the wider subject of Classics as a whole.
I found him to be entirely trustworthy, reliable, patient and professional in his approach to being a tutor. I cannot recommend him highly enough, Tom has had a really positive impact on my daughter's approach to learning, so much so, she now misses her tutor after having initially been a reluctant pupil!
