This year I only tutored two students who were taking exams (most of my students are adult learners and a few younger children). One was taking GCSE Art and the other A Level Art. I was both proud and relieved to find out that they both achieved A*! The boy taking GCSE Art had been having lessons with me since he was 11 and he achieved...

However, like anything, taken one step at a time, at the correct level, real confidence and knowledge can build rapidly and studying the subject can become a very enjoyable and enriching experience. The history of art can be studied via books, lectures, films and of...

"Thank you, Sonny, for helping teach our son different aspects of painting and drawing for the last 4 years in which time Jay's work has developed and broadened enormously. He was able to include a couple of pieces he painted with you as part of his portfolio for a successful Art Scholarship to Charterhouse School and we are in no doubt of the valuable contribution you made in helping him obtain that award."

...I can't quite still believe it in my own mind, but I got an A* overall. It’s incredible how much my skill improved since AS and I really feel I took a huge leap between the two years. I have you to thank for that along with the support from my parents, that I really appreciate all the help and support that you gave me. I wouldn't have been able to make it into such a good university without your help! "
