Do you have a personal message for students?
Having had a very rigorous educational background myself, I am committed to supporting my students to achieve their highest marks in their CE, scholarship and A-Level examinations. I particularly enjoy tutoring students who sit scholarship exams - two of my students were awarded the Queen's Scholarship in 2017 and 2015, i.e. the scholarship exam at Westminster School. In addition, my A-Level students have admitted entry to Oxbridge, and other Russell group universities.
