    My daughter took on Further Maths a bit later at the start of her first year in college as she swapped out another subject for it. As a result she really struggled initially but after just a few months of weekly sessions she gained an A at AS level. She, and we, were absolutely delighted and the improvement in her understanding and confidence was evident after just the first one or two sessions with John. Would highly recommend, thank you so much! Julie & Niamh Anderson

    John has been an incredible tutor and mentor for my son, sitting both ‘Maths and Further Maths’ A levels. John was able to very quickly identify areas that needed more work, whilst also guiding my son to become independent in his own problem solving with tougher areas of the curriculum. John’s communication is excellent; both reassuring and inspiring. My son’s confidence has soared and he’s gone on to get excellent results. We couldn’t have been happier and we wholly recommend John.

    John has been absolutely and consistently supportive in prepping my year 13 son to university level. He has been accepted to read Mathematics with Finance and Economics at his first-choice university, City, university of London.Not only did John explain complex mathematics in a simplistic way he was also extremely patient, understanding (especially with boys) and most importantly regularly communicated to me my son’s progress so I was not left in the dark.First class – fantastic commitment and sincere dedication, John performed not just a job – Unlike previous tutors, John set weekly homework tasks; made sure it was completed on time and provided regular feedback to my son outside of the tuition period! John also coached my son to become more disciplined in his learning. Examples, effective self-study/ independent learning, writing out each step in his answers and not leaving the completion of tasks/revision to the last minute!!!When my son started A’level Further Maths tuition with John in November 2022 his predicted university grades in Further Maths and Maths were E & D respectively. By Spring 2023 end of term his predicted university grades jumped to B in Further Maths and A in Maths which gave him access to a wider range of good quality Universities to apply to read Maths.John’s support didn’t just stop at the start of the A’level exams he continued supporting us (yes me as well) until the end of the exams and supplied my son with Economics and Maths prepping resources for his University journey.With no hesitation, I highly recommend John, he is worth every penny spent and much, much more.All the best John in the future it has been a pleasure knowing you and once again thank you for all your wise words and parent support.P.S. If you plan to provide university level math’s tuition please give me a shout.

    John has endlessly supported me with my maths studies throughout Year 13. He has especially helped me a lot with MAT practice and taught me how manage my time efficiently in order to answer as many questions as possible during the exam. He also revised my personal statement and prepared me well for my university studies. It is only because of John that I was able to achieve A*s in both Further Maths and Maths for my A-Levels, allowing me to read Maths and Statistics at KCL. I will always be indebted to him for all his support and would reccomend him to anyone looking for a Maths Tutor!

  • Avatar Anuva D ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    John has taught my son Maths for over a year now and I can say after todays results that every penny spent on the classes was very well spent. Not only did my son grow in confidence as far as Maths and Further Maths course was concerned, he also evolved into a strong mathematician, that gave him the confidence to study Mathematics in University Level. He scored A*s in both Maths as well as Furthur Maths. John also gave us invaluable advice as far as university selection and checking the Personal statement was concerned. He is passionate about teaching Maths and a committed teacher. He would rearrange classes if my son missed a class, this is very difficult for him as he has to rearrange his entire timetable. He has so many resources my son found them very useful. My son now goes on to read Mathematics in Kings and we have only John to thank. More than highly recommended if you need a teacher, that can help you to achieve that A*.
  • Avatar Charlie Phillips ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    John is an absolutely fantastic tutor. In the space of around 9 months John took me from a grade D in 2022 to an A in 2023. Always punctual and aware of timings, and happy to answer any questions at anytime of day. My lessons were always enjoyable and John was always pleasant whilst pushing me to work things out on my own instead of simply showing me the answer. All in all, I enjoyed John’s Tutoring very much and would certainly recommend him to other students looking to improve in their maths.
  • Avatar Padma Rangan ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    I initially started sixth form getting B’s and C’s in Maths, until I started my lessons with John, and he helped me to see Maths in a different point of view, and helped me practice Maths in a way that I found it much more enjoyable. He really understands each students’ needs and I found that any gaps in my knowledge were quickly tackled and my confidence in Maths greatly increased. He explains it in a way that is easy to understand and accessible for any student, and with the use of the Miro board is able to easily see how better I could approach any question. With his help, I was able to achieve an A* in Maths, and was able to secure a place at medical school.
  • Avatar Alana Ferrer Sangwan ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    There’s not enough stars to rate John!! When I contacted John, my daughter was nearing the end of her first year of A levels. She was failing Maths and was completely and utterly lost at school. And all we wanted was for her to pass! The results were declared a couple of days ago- she got an A !!John is an excellent tutor all round and I cannot recommend him enough. From explaining concepts to giving her shortcuts to save time to the resources he provides on his website, my daughter’s confidence just grew and grew. It was an amazing transformation to witness!John is an extremely dedicated tutor who cares about his students and helps them to achieve their goal. He understands his students, is quick to spot what they need help with ( including if thats exam nerves ) and he was always available to clear up her doubts.John is worth every penny we spent and more. Ive had other tutors that I have paid more for but got a lot less in return.Thank you John! We were so lucky to have found you!
  • Avatar Deborah Phillips ★★★★★ a year ago
    John is fantastic. He has tutored my son through a resit year and the improvement has been incredible both in his mathematic ability and his confidence. John is very calm, understanding and his lessons are well structured and organized with clear work set in between. John’s online resources are really comprehensive and my son attended the Easter residential revision course which was a valuable opportunity to consolidate his knowledge prior to the exams. I would not hesitate to recommend John as a tutor.
  • Avatar Matthew Payne ★★★★★ a year ago
    I have nothing but good things to say about John and his teaching. Without him I would have probably failed Maths and Physics but ended up with A's. He is not just a knowledgeable teacher he can adapt his style to anyone and get them motivated when nobody else can.
  • Avatar William Jones ★★★★★ a year ago
    John helped me massively through my A-Levels and provided invaluable support both as a tutor and mentor. The sessions were relaxed but always very productive. I’d strongly recommend John to anyone who wants to take their understanding further than their curriculum.
  • Avatar Jane Jones ★★★★★ a year ago
    John is an excellent tutor who showed a genuine interest in both of our sons. He provided honest but constructive feedback throughout, with great exam results to show for it. We have only good things to say about him, have recommended him to several friends, and would have no hesitation in recommending him further. You'd struggle to find a tutor or teacher more committed to mentoring young people. Thank you John.John is an excellent tutor who showed a genuine interest in both of our sons.

    John tutored me for my GCSE’s – I was in bottom set for most subjects and struggled especially with maths. I reached out to John for some help with how I can do better in this subject and get a good GCSE result. I was so incredibly happy with how my tutoring went with John. He made sure that he had tried all ways to make sure I understand in my head and made sure I was clear on absolutely everything – this really benefited me and grew my confidence hugely. I then got high grades in my GCSE’s and went from a predicted fail in maths to getting an A – I couldn’t have been happier. Couldn’t recommend John more.

    John is an amazing tutor who encourages creativity and problem solving during his sessions. He was able to bring out the best in me and achieve my full potential in mathematics. He is dedicated to his students and without him, I would not have achieved my goals in A-level maths. Cannot recommend his services enough.
  • Avatar Dani Vinuesa ★★★★★ a year ago
    John was fantastic and absolutely key in getting me through my maths A level – I achieved an A overall which was a big jump from the C I was predicted when my parents looked him up!Most importantly, he helped me realise my own potential and get back the confidence in my ability that I'd really lacked throughout school.The fact that I have since gone on to gain a BSc in Maths is testament to his hard work and encouragement.John was fantastic and absolutely key in getting me through my maths A level – I achieved an A overall which was a big jump from the C I was predicted when my parents looked him up! …More

  • Avatar Jack Scott ★★★★★ a year ago
    John was a great tutor who was friendly and really helped with my A level Maths. He made the problems easier to understand and supplied plenty of extra questions that I could practice on. This ultimately helped me to achieve a much better grade than I thought was possible!
  • Avatar Ray Payne ★★★★★ a year ago
    John turned our son's maths results and attitude around. Matt achieved a grade C at AS level maths but, having spent time with John, he subsequently got a grade A at A level. He also won the Year 13 maths prize for the ""most improved" student. Great work on both parts.
  • Avatar Jill Grogan ★★★★★ a year ago
    John taught my daughter A Level maths. He encouraged and inspired her, gave her the confidence to succeed when she was feeling overwhelmed and struggling to cope with the content. A fantastic tutor, who genuinely cared about his students results. Many thx John, she got the grades required.
  • Avatar Imogen Brown ★★★★★ a year ago
    Before having maths tuition, I was lacking confidence and struggling to understand the concepts required for GCSE maths. I found 121 tuition with John really helped build my confidence and understanding. With John’s help, I achieved a fantastic result in my exams and would highly recommend to anyone in a similar situation.

  • Avatar Millie Coleman ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Since having John as a tutor it has really helped with my confidence and grades. Lots of resources and teaching styles to help if you're struggling. He's also very helpful outside of lesson time if you have any questions. Well structured lessons and great Easter revision course, would highly recommend.
  • Avatar Jess E ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    John is an amazing tutor. I did the Easter course at York University with him for a week and learnt so much that I decided to have 8 one to one tutor sessions with him on line. These work really well with an iPad and stylus. John replies to all your questions during the week too!
  • Avatar Oliver Shaw ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    At the beginning of Year 12 I was struggling with maths a lot, but after John started tutoring me my confidence increased massively as well as my overall understanding of the content. I also really appreciated being able to ask John for help at any time throughout the week with maths questions providing even more support. This Easter, I went to John’s A-level revision course and it was so helpful and recapped all of the A-level content , leaving me feeling a lot more prepared for my maths exams.
  • Avatar Victoria Tsang ★★★★★ 2 years ago
  • Avatar Zeal Rathod ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    John is an amazing tuition teacher, he shapes each lesson to suit individual needs. If I didn’t understand something, then he would try to explain it differently until I could. So much work is covered and understanding is gained in each lesson. I was able to learn each topic’s core concepts which helped me answer exams style questions more easily. If I did not have John, then my A-Levels would not have gone as smoothly as they did. Fantastic help for all of the topics in maths and further maths.

    John was a fantastic maths tutor whilst I was doing my A-levels. His approach was supportive and encouraging, taking the time to work through different topics and questions in a clear and easy to understand way. I attended one of Johns short courses leading up to my exams, which was also extremely helpful. With Johns support I was able to achieve a grade I wouldn't have otherwise been able to achieve, which helped me get into my preferred university choice to study Architecture.

    Really great teaching and a very organised course structure, we also went away with revision packs for ongoing work with past papers, exam questions etc as well as access to John’s online material. Very intensive course but I found that helpful!! thankyou for your hard work in putting this together.
  • Avatar Kian Rahimi ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Since I started the tuition with John I have felt far more on top of my maths, and have seen my grades take a massive increase. The lessons are well planned and particularly good thanks to all of the resources he has available. The revision course was also a great way to consolidate all the work throughout the year and helped me massively in achieving a top predicted grade.
  • Avatar Rachel McLaren ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    I highly recommend. Very professional and accessible. John was very flexible in his approach, tailoring his tuition to meet my child’s needs. He made learning and enjoyable experience which in turn led to significant improvements in my son’s ability.
  • Avatar Christopher Lim ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    By far the best Maths tutor I've had. His guidance during my A-Levels helped me understand concepts and transform it into solid improvements – something rare among Maths tutors. The practices were of tremendous value and led me to grasp the syllabus from scratch. I highly encourage anyone in need of maths tuition to book a revision course/lesson.
  • Avatar Lucy Benn ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    I found the one to one tutor sessions really helpful as John was able to answer any question I had on any topic and source exam style questions for me to tackle and work through so that I could properly understand how to do them. Also the videos on individual topics were so useful for when practicing questions on my own and revising when I got stuck as they explain each individual topic in a really straight forward manner. I would highly recommend John’s services to anyone doing alevel maths as they helped me go from Cs to an A*.

    I attended the recent Yr.12 revision course. John was very thorough, well organised with excellent resources and explained all the content very clearly. The videos of the course will be great to use in the year ahead. Thank you John!
  • Avatar Kate Dobson ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    I found the course really good revision as going through every topic was a good refresher and really helpful to then use to find weaknesses to focus on further. I think it really helped my confidence as well as I knew more on how to approach the exam questions. Doing the exam questions on the website after we had gone through the topic was helpful and I felt more confident answering them and I felt it was good revision. I found the days quite long but the regular breaks were really helpful and it was nice to get the whole course refreshed in such a short amount of time. Overall, I think the course was really useful and definitely improved my exam technique and knowledge so I felt more confident in the final assessments than I would have.
  • Avatar Niamh Anderson ★★★★★ 4 years ago
  • Avatar Ben Brown ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Did all of these before my maths A levels and helped me achieve an A* in maths and A in further maths. They also really took the pressure of in terms of revision as you can get the majority of it done in one day freeing up lots of time for other subjects, making the overall exam period much more manageable and structured. The tutors were much better than my maths teachers at school and their fresh insight really improved understanding. They were also really flexible and able to allocate time to target problem areas based on individual needs. Could not recommend more.
  • Avatar Jacob Campbell-Mapplebeck ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Struggled quite a bit in my first year of Maths A Levels, and then I got in contact with John. The revision courses he ran and his thorough methods extremely helped me throughout my final A Level year and I was able to get the grade I needed in Maths. Highly recommendable.
