My son was tutored by Zac Newman for Maths G.C.S.E. from January to May 2015. During this period I noticed my son's confidence levels increase. My son's self esteem improved as did his own abilities in Maths. Zac has a very positive, encouraging approach when teaching. I will happily use Zac and Newman Tuition again for my other children.
Zac worked with my 13 year old son, helping him with his maths work. Always on time, super professional and inspirational, we found him a pleasure to have in our home. We would gladly recommend Zac to anyone who wishes to boost their child's confidence in maths, prepare them for exams, or to just keep up with the work done in a high set.
We were looking for a tutor for our son not just to ensure he passed his 11+ but to also improve his exam technique and build his confidence. Zac was able, within a short time, to highlight our son's strengths & weakness. Zac guided us on topics where he was being careless and pinpointed areas for improvement. Our son didn't initially want a tutor but Zac's approach was relaxed and friendly, and by the end of our time with Zac, our son missed being able to go over areas he hadn't quite grasped at schoolâ€¦
...Zac had a wide variety or techniques and games to engage and encourage our son. We were also given accurate and valuable feedback on what to do to ensure continued progress. Our son was confident for his 11+ and he was able to secure a place at the school we wanted (with a partial scholarship). I would recommend Zac and Newman Tuition.
We have employed Zac to tutor our son, Matthew, who is currently in Year 9.
We are so pleased as Matthew is gaining in both confidence and grades through Zac's teaching methods.
We were very grateful to Zac for his coaching of our son. Our previous tutor dropped out for personal reasons, and we were left with a short period to make the final preparations for the entrance exams. Zac quickly identified the small number of missing elements in our son's skills and worked with him in the last 6 weeks to hone and improve his skills. As a result, our son was a confident candidate when it came to taking the entrance exams, and for that we are very gratefulâ€¦.
â€¦Zac has an excellent attitude with the children he tutors, and works with them well to identify and work on their weaknesses and grow their confidence. He was professional in the best possible way.
