Client Quotes

Here are a few quotes from some recent unsolicited emails;

Just wanted to let you know that I got A*AA so I will be going to the University of Leicester this September! I got an A in Maths, but I was really close to the A*! I got full marks in my Stats exam (100 UMS), and for Core 3 and Core 4 I neded an average of 90 UMS to get an A*, but got 87 and 91 UNS respectively. My maths teacher is going to request a remark for my Core 3 paper since I was only 1 mark off. Thanks for all your help these past 7 years.
(August 2015 - Sarina will start studying to be a doctor in September 2015)



I've gotten into Bath! I got A* in Maths and Chemistry and an A in Further Maths. Thank you so much for everything - I definitely couldn't have done it without you!


' I've just come back from collecting my results at school, and I wanted to tell you what I got in Science and Additional Maths. I've A* in all the science subjects and an A in Additional Maths. On top of that, I also got full marks in all my science exams! I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help, and I look forward to our lessons in a couple of weeks time. '


'Thanks again for your help with Jack. I'm sure that he went from E to A in a few months was without a shadow of a doubt down to your assistance and patience and as such would be delighted to appear as a referee.'

(Summer 2012, GCSE Physics, Mrs Symcox in the list of referees)


'I would like to thank you for all the time you spent with Sam for his A level Physics. His interest in the subject was regenerated and his confidence much improved as a direct result of your input. Without which I believe he would not have gained his first choice university place at Sheffield Hallam.'

(Summer 2012, A level Physics, Mrs Shirley in the list of referees)


'Thank you for all your help and guidance. I doubt this would have happened without your expertise.' Amy Leighton.
["this" is Amy passing her Quantitative Techniques examination at Aston University]


'Thank you very much for yesterday. Tom seemed to both enjoy the session and felt that he had learned something. He also said that "he knows his stuff and can explain things" - a massive compliment from an 18 year old!! We wish we had known about you when we unsuccessfully tried to arrange some AS Level Maths last year and at an earlier stage for Physics.'


'I think your website is excellent, really clear and well laid out.
We hope your tuition continues to flourish. Had we known that Deborah would have needed A2 Physics for her course we could have come to you!'


'I just thought I would send you an email to say thank you so much for the help you have given Simon to prepare him for the AS and A2 Physics exams over the past year. Without your expertise and guidance he would not have been able to exceed his target grades in the AS Physics exams he took in January. We now hope he will achieve the overall A level Physics grade he needs to be able to study Acoustics at Salford University this September, thanks to your thoroughness and patience.'

'Just to let you know that Simon did ok in his A levels, but was not accepted to study Acoustics at Salford. He gained a C for his Physics, C for Music Technology and D for Maths. His Physics teacher was very pleased with his result in Physics, so thank you for all your hard work. This time last year he got a U in AS Physics! He is applying through clearing for other courses and has been made 2 offers so far, one for Sound Recording and Design and one for Sports Science.'

'Just to update you,we have just come back from an Open Day at York St John University. It's a really lovely place right in the centre of York and the course in Sports Science sounds just what Simon wants. There is an emphasis on science and Simon thought the biomechanics modules would be particularly interesting. In the end he was made 4 offers, but decided on York in the end. It's been a mad couple of days, so thank goodness it's sorted.'
