Mark tutored my twins throughout year 11 up to the GCSEs. Both children required different input and both were doing different exam boards. They had 45 minutes each by Skype using an interactive screen on their laptops once a week. Mark focused on exam paper practice questions and he was completely up to speed with the style of exam papers and approach to take. My kids thoroughly enjoyed their tutoring. George has just got a level 9 in Maths (A**) and the top grade 'A' in FSMQ (a further paper bridging to A level) and Eve who was predicted a 6 at most, secured a 7 (basically an A) which I am certain was down to Mark's input. Thank you, Melanie Armstrong, August 2018
Mark, our son came to you as he was embarking on his GCSE course and he was seriously lacking in confidence. However, you showed him lots of techniques, tools and confidence to improve greatly over the 2 years. He really enjoyed the Skype training too, as we do not live that close to you anymore! In fact, his confidence, knowledge and hard work gained him a Level 9 in his final GCSE result! Thank you so much for your time and patience and to say we are thrilled with his result is an understatement. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to others in the same situation. J.D.

Hi Mark, Anabel passed all her exams. She got a 6 in maths with 95/200, so 7 marks off a 7. Many thanks for all your help. Kathryn, August 2018
Good morning Mark, Lloyd got a B in maths and his first choice, Law at Newcastle. Many thanks for all your efforts. The work you did with him was important both in terms of aptitude and confidence. Many thanks, Ron Pundick, August 2018
Mark has been an excellent tutor over the course of the last six months. Mark was able to pinpoint the areas I most needed to work on whilst also
teaching me a number of ways to check my answers and greatly speed up how long it took me to finish my papers. He was very friendly throughout and
made me considerably more confident going into the exam season and I cannot thank him enough for helping me to attain the A star I needed to secure
my place at University. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone, regardless of their level, he is sure to have a way to help all standards. Thanks again. Sam, August 2017
Mark I passed!!! I got a 4!! I'm so unbelievably happy I can't believe it! Thank you so much for all your help I definitely couldn't of done it without you!
Thank you so much!! Melissa, August 2017
I collected my degree at the weekend.
Thank you for all your help over the years.
There is no way I could have made it without your help.
I got a 2.1 in the end but was so close to a first.
All the best, Darren
Mark has been a fantastic tutor as he has helped me develop my
mathematical problems solving skills; enabling me to achieve a grade A
in my Mathematics GCSE and a B in my Further Mathematics GCSE. Moreover
Mark has been very supportive as he clearly explains how to improve and
how to overcome certain challenges. Mark is a genuinely nice guy and I
would definitely recommend him!
Thanks again for all your support,
Jake W, September 2014.
decided to re-sit my GCSE Maths as it was essential for my chosen
course at university. I am currently in my second year at college and I
could remember how maths hadn’t been my easiest subject at school,
where I achieved a C and so I felt a little nervous thinking about
studying the subject again. I had only two months to study for the exam
in November and so I had the feeling that it was probably unlikely I
would get the grade I needed. However, when I began being tutored by
Mark, once a week from September, I found that Maths was not so bad
after all as he explained everything in an easy way and was very
patient whenever I had difficulty grasping a mathematical concept.
Also, he made me feel confident about the two exams that I was sitting.
A couple of days ago was results day and I got the grade B I needed! I
know that I would definitely not have achieved this grade if it wasn’t
for all of Mark’s help and so I would certainly recommend him for
anyone looking for a tutor. Thanks again Mark! Jake Connor, January
has tutored me for as long as I can remember, and has been incredibly
helpful across several stages of education.
have found his help crucial in developing a confident base in
Mathematics, clarifying school material at my own pace, and he
never failed to inspire further exploration of the
subjects encountered. I am currently very happily studying
at Bath Uni and owe in large part the success and drive I have
today to early work with Mark. Learning with Mark has always
proved far more accessible than a classroom situation, his
friendly and patient teaching style making sessions enjoyable
memorable. Most notably he has always seemed
to invest in his students as much as possible, even now at uni still
offering support through email for any concerns. I
really couldn't recommend him more for anyone looking for a tutor :)

is an outstanding tutor! He is extremely patient and with his support,
I was successful at GCSE and went on to study Maths at Advanced level.
I am now a physics undergraduate at Sheffield University.
Mark has the ability to explain very complex concepts in a
way. I do not think I could have achieved what I have without
Mark's help and encouragement. Ben Wilson, Ramsbottom, May
Mark, I just thought I would let you know how I got on. I got my A in
further maths, and thanks to all your help and support my highest score
in all my maths papers was FP3 - I got 95/100! I just can't believe it
and would just like to say thank you for everything you did, and your
teaching style really helped me to understand the subject. The A in
Further Maths allowed me to get into my first choice uni, which is LSE.
So thank you again. All the best in the future, Greg, from
Mark, Just a
note to say how grateful we both are for the help,
encouragement and very professional tuition you have given to Dominic
over the last couple of years. He has achieved an "A" at GCSE, a grade
we thought was unattainable two years ago. A very big THANK YOU for the
way in which we have seen him grasp and understand the many
mathematical concepts needed and the confidence you gave him to tackle
the subject. You transformed his view of maths and his understanding
and application has also helped greatly in achieving excellent grades
in subjects such as science and business studies. Once again, many
thanks - we would certainly recommend you as a tutor to anyone who
wants to see their child achieve at the top level. Best wishes, John
I was in my last year of
high school, my target grade for Maths was B.
When I sat my mock exam in November 2007, I received a grade D and my
confidence had gone. Mark began tutoring me once a week from December
through to the exams in May and in the results last week I attained a
B. Mark was an excellent one to one tutor, he gave me so much
confidence and taught me many new easy to understand methods to problem
solving. His teaching style really suited me, he would listen and show
me where I was going wrong and then test me over and over to ensure I
had remembered. Mark was really good at focussing on what I could
achieve and how to get a B so we did not waste time on topics that
would prove out of my range. Not only did Mark help me in my Maths but
all in all he built up my confidence after not doing as well as I
should have done in my mocks across all subjects. This helped me pass
all 11 subjects entered at GCSE, all except 3 were at grade B or above.
I would strongly recommend Mark to anyone looking for a GCSE maths
tutor. Mike, Castlebrook High School, 2008
