“Hi, Keith
I would like to personally send you a massive thank you.
Once again you have managed to change my daughter’s enthusiasm and attitude and make the subject fun and enjoyable. In only 12 months you have been able to change their predicted C grades to an unbelievable A grade and keep their dreams and aspirations alive. Both of my daughters were delighted – because of your brilliant teaching skills they got their first choice of university.
Many many thanks.”
– Mick  Brennan, parent (2023)

Thank you for you help without which she would never have achieved this!”

“I would thoroughly recommend Keith as a tutor. I found Keith very supportive to both our daughter and ourselves during her A-level year. He was very reliable and kept in touch with ourselves via email to keep us up to date with our daughters progress. Keith was great at on-line teaching, very engaging and directed us to all the resources that she would need. (These turned out to be far better than had been recommended by her school). Keith through his guidance and exam question practice helped Chaerlotte to obtain her grade for university, many thanks Keith. Charlotte is obviously very pleased with her exam grade and I think it helped immensely that she was doing all the exercise questions with yourself….”

We can thoroughly recommend Keith without any reservations.”

bu012“I seriously doubt a different tutor for Psychology would have enabled Tom to grow and develop his academic capabilities as well as you have. I, my husband and, of course Tom, are so grateful we ‘found’ you.  The success in his A’ levels were the ‘icing on the cake’.  And I do mean ALL his A’ levels, as I firmly believe your help enabled him to do so well in ALL his subjects.”
– Gill Kemp, parent (2016)

bu012“Keith!! I HAVE GOT INTO UNI!!!!! You took me from an E grade student and helped me get a B!!! I honestly cannot believe it! I dreamed of getting a B but didn’t think it would come true. Honestly I wouldn’t have been able to do that without all your help and support! I am over the moon and my jaw is starting to hurt from smiling so much!
This is the best feeling ever so thank you so so much for helping me achieve it!!”
– Sophie Hastings, Skype tutee (2016)

You have helped Hayley immensely.”

You will always be very highly recommended.”
