“We have and continue to use the maths services provided by Jonny and could not be more satisfied. From the outset, Jonny established a rapport with our daughter, building subject assurance that has proven transformational in her approach to maths generally, specific topics in particular, and most importantly examination confidence. We continue to use the services for the International Baccalaureate and would recommend wholeheartedly without reservation.”
“Jonny has been teaching our son Freddie in Upper Sixth to support him in achieving an A grade for his final exams. The online tutoring worked very well for Freddie as it is so flexible in terms of time and location. Jonny has been very quick in understanding the problems and difficulties where our son was struggling. He is a very dedicated, friendly and well-organised tutor, really motivating for the student to overcome any hurdles that are encountered. Freddie got on really well with Jonny from the start and appreciated his calm and clear approach to teaching.
I have already recommended Jonny to friends and can only speak highly of his engagement with the student and also the open communication to us as parents. Freddie has improved his A-Level maths significantly and has gained immensely in confidence which is great to see. Jonny is a very committed tutor who has found his calling at a young age. Thanks so much!”
“Jonny has provided maths tuition to my daughters, aged 12 and 6, both of whom are at very different stages of learning and differing ability. Jonny readily adapted his style of teaching to suit the different needs of both. He makes the learning fun, interesting and rewarding and I have noticed clear improvements in both girls’ comprehension of the subject. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
“We tried a number of tutors for Angus but without doubt Jonny was the best – not just because of his knowledge which was excellent but because he was relatable and relevant to Angus which made him enjoy the sessions more and get more extra value from them.
From a parent’s point of view Jonny was reliable, flexible and open to observations. Although at first, I had doubts over the online teaching model I am now completely won over.
Most importantly he made Angus confident that he could cope with anything the exam process could throw at him which is half of the battle. Angus’s results and the fact that he has got into Cambridge are the ultimate proof that this was money well spent. Angus is planning on using Jonny again for some refresher sessions towards the end of his year off.”
“Jonny has been great helping Josh, using relatable language and face to face discussions over Skype to encourage Josh to think for himself and not give up. He is really motivating, cheerful and provides great feedback and is happy to discuss progress any time via phone or email. Definitely recommend to anyone who needs that bit of extra help and may struggle with in school classes.”
“Jonny is enthusiastic, patient and clearly very knowledgeable. He relates well to his students and is good at overcoming any initial resistance to additional tutoring. He is user friendly, flexible and effective.”
“Jonny was recommended to me by a tutor and I can understand why. He takes the time to understand my 3 children and understand their individual needs. Whilst explaining in a clear coherent style he makes sure they understand each concept and doesn’t let it go until he’s sure they have grasped each method thoroughly. The skype calls mean we can be more flexible around time and location and all 3 girls enjoy this way of working.
As he is young he understands how schools currently teach Maths. Constantly encouraging and patient I can already see a huge increase in confidence in this subject area from all three of my girls.”
“Jonny has been tutoring my 17-year old son, Tom, for the past six months or so, preparing him for his AS-level Maths exam. Jonny is a very pleasant, well-spoken young man, who very quickly developed a good rapport with my son. Being not too much older than him, Tom found it easy to relate to Jonny, and they share a passion for football! Jonny clearly has a knack for teaching / tutoring, and Tom has found it hugely helpful indeed. He had been on the verge of giving up Maths for A-Levels, finding it immensely difficult, but Jonny has given him the confidence to carry on with maths, and he has come on in leaps and bound; Tom is now a capable mathematician.
Jonny explains things patiently and clearly, and is quite happy to go over, and over, and over something if need be. He is quietly encouraging, and celebrates the successes with Tom — indeed, I’m sure he is eagerly awaiting Tom’s AS Maths results as much as we are! Tom feels able, and confident to now continue with Maths for A-level. Jonny is 100% reliable, was always on time, and his low-key, flexible approach to tutoring has made a massive difference to Tom. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Jonny.”
“Jonny is quietly spoken, charming, understanding and caring. His approach of being quietly confident that he can assist a child is reassuring. He starts at the beginning and moves forward until he finds a “hole”, a break in the knowledge/a lack of understanding, then he works with the pupil until they are confident it all makes sense and move forward. Slowly and surely they work together until the next “hole” appears and then they fix this. So far our boy has gone from a D and very low marks in October to this March and a C with good marks. The school now saying that he could go for a B in the GSCE exams. *Update* B achieved at GCSE!
I think it is an advantage that Jonny is young and is therefore able to relate to our 16 year old son and our son to Jonny. He has his own exams and education that he has to take care of yet he still finds time to encourage and help. We have been very happy, satisfied and reassured by Jonny and have no hesitation in recommending him.”
