Testimonial from previous student:

"Nick tutored both me and my classmate at GCSE science, helping us both to achieve grades we previously thought impossible. He was both very knowledgeable and patient, putting us at ease while be taught, however remained persistent with us in order to make sure we achieved the grades we wanted. Although he was not confined to just tutoring science, his passion for the subject ensured we continuously developed as students."
