I am extremely proud of the hundreds of pupils that I have tutored over the years and their accomplishments. Many supposedly 'no hopers' when they first came to me, have ended up being able to go on University and after graduation have gone onto fulfilling careers. Many parents and former students still keep in touch and nothing gives me greater pleasure than hearing of their success. Here are just some reviews from parents.
"My daughter Alice still talks about Charlie's class. She always says she wouldn't have gotten on to her pharmacy course at Strathclyde if it hadn't been for Charlie. He also helped her through her university maths in first year."
"All four of my children have been tutored by Charlie in maths at National 5 and Higher level. They have all exceeded predictions made by their class teachers and all have achieved 'A' grades. I cannot recommend Charlie highly enough. He manages to make a difficult subject understandable for even the most mathematically challenged pupils!"
"I have sent my five kids, over a period of ten years, to Charlie's classes. We travelled around 23 miles to get to his class on a weekly basis. He was very much worth the journey. All other tutors we got for other subjects locally. My oldest girl Mary always says "Always do it Charlie's way, his teaching methods are the best.""
"I have sent my oldest daughter from the time she started St. Ninians, as well as my nephews, nieces and my friends kids. My oldest daughter got an A in her Higher maths. He knows the teaching methods of all the East Renfrewshire schools as well as the independent schools. Always honest and reliable. You can always count on him to give one-to-one tuition if it's needed at certain times."
"His style of teaching really benefits students that have dyslexic issues. He breaks down topics in an easy to understand way. Charlie encourages his students to write answers in a presentation style that maximises their potential to gain optimum marks."
"Charlie taught me just before my Nat 5 exam. I knew he was good when the teacher changed her teaching method. - she got me to teach her the way I was taught by Charlie... she then taught the class this way! Wish I'd met him earlier."
"I live nearby Charlie Both my son and more recently my daughter has said Charlie breaks down the maths topics in a way they can understand. His methods seem to resonate better with them than those taught by the school. His style is very clear, it is no wonder people travel for his tuition."
"I bumped into Charlie recently and told him that the family still talk about him. We are teachers and have witnessed first hand how my oldest daughter found maths so much easier using Charlie's methods - we even invited Charlie to my daughter's graduation party because of his contribution. I'm very pleased to recommend him."
"Meant to get in contact earlier about Frankie. He announced the other day that he found out recently from his maths teacher that he got an A+ for Nat 5. He got 87%, I can't believe that, thought you want to know he's gone from a low C/fail to an A+ - good going."
"Knew Charlie for years. It was a no brainer to send Liam to Charlie. Liam preferred Charlie's teaching style as the school's methods didn't come easy to Liam. Felt Charlie motivated Liam and got him to the point he actually enjoyed participating in the small group. Liam said that Charlie made the group interactive and I noticed Liam became consciences in his writing and kept his work folder organised. I've recommended Charlie to friends and neighbours and the feedback is always good!
" I've known Charlie for years, We travelled from Bathgate for his tuition. My son Jack said that being taught by Charlie is like night and day compared to his time at school.
Parents come to me for a variety of reasons. Some reviews above are from parents who wanted their child to improve their exam mark for entrance into a private school or into University. Some reviews are from parents who had children, not so academically minded and so my technique was to not just teach them Maths but how to be more self reliant and problem solve. Once these students realised they could successfully complete problems, their confidence sky rocketed and they have the mental tools to apply the techniques to other subjects.
Please note I am only able to take on a limited number of students at a time. If you wish to discuss enrolling your child into my tutoring program. Please contact me on Free Phone 0800 043 1984 for more information.
