I always felt that I got more out of an hour with Victor that four hours with a teacher. He has a unique gift for explaining difficult concepts with great clarity. This, coupled with a vast knowledge that stretches well beyond A-level makes Victor one of the very best. He has a very methodical and structured style of teaching which really suited me. I always got the top grade in GCSE and A-level exams Victor helped me with and I have since achieved a first class honours degree from Oxford.
Victor is an excellent, inspirational teacher who explains concepts from the very beginning, enabling one to get a good grasp of the topic and being able to apply this knowledge to different scenarios. He has helped greatly in showing me how to approach problems and this boosted my confidence for when it came to the exams. Overall, he is a very experienced, professional tutor, who I would strongly recommend to all students of all abilities.
We wanted to write to say a very big thank you for working so hard with David to enable him to achieve his A* grades. We are particularly delighted with the Additional Maths result, particularly as he was working at a C grade in April. David always says that the one-to-one lessons with you allow him to ask questions freely and he describes you as the very best teacher he has ever had.
