Here is some recent feedback from students and Parents:

"Brilliant teacher - due to this, in the past 6 months my grades and understanding in maths have seen a drastic increase - would highly recommend to anybody!" (GCSE maths student, 2017).
"I would highly recommend Ken as a maths tutor to anyone and would encourage it as a wise investment. He has restored my daughters confidence in her own abilities in order to provide her with the best possible chance of succeeding at her higher maths GCSE. Ken's superb teaching skills have enabled my daughter to understand topics which she had been unable to grasp at school and his years of experience as the head of maths department is evident through his extensive knowledge of the maths syllabus, exam system and excellent communication skills." (Parent of GCSE maths student, 2017)
"My daughter was lacking in confidence in maths in the run up to starting her GCSE programme. Ken has been really helpful in building up her confidence and he goes through each topic in line with her syllabus so she feels more prepared for class. His approach is methodic to each topic and is very structured. Ken is a great teacher."
Do you have a personal message for students?
My students are always very pleased at how quickly they become confident at Maths and they begin to enjoy answering maths questions.

All of my students make excellent progress and eventually secure top grades.
