Toby helped my son Joe with 10 sessions of A2 Chemistry and made a huge difference. Toby has an approachable, professional and enthusiastic manner. I would highly recommend him to other AS/A2 Chemistry students.

Toby made very effective use of mind maps - Good practical approach to problem solving with plenty of opportunities to use one's own imagination and to make learning fun

M
Miss K Hughes (A grade at GCSE Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Physics. Latymer and Godolphin School)

Toby is a very approachable and attentive tutor. I would strongly recommend him

J
June

He really boosted my confidence. I can't recommend him enough.

J
June

I have used other tutors in the past and Toby has clearly been a cut above these providers.

S
Steven

What separates Toby from the other tutors is he genuinely wants his tutee to gain the best possible mark and will go out of his way to get them there

J
Jeff

Toby's approach to teaching duties is nothing short of exemplary. He is energetic, intelligent, hard-working, honest and professional. I have no hesitation with recommending him most highly.

P
Peter

He has great qualities of leadership and decency which will take him far in life.

E
Elena

Giuliana was delighted with your tutoring and she felt much better about Chemistry, much more secure and feeling she could actually understand the subject. She is obviously much more at ease with her chemistry and this is in itself a huge improvement besides her actual marks. So many thanks to you for this, you changed completely her outlook to the subject.
