In my short time with Steve, I found him to be an excellent tutor. He'd poke and prod at my essays and arguments, in order to push my argumentation to greater heights, all while being personable and occasionally funny. I would recommend his tutelage to anyone who wishes to refine their writing and argumentation.
Steve was very helpful in getting me familiarised with the format of the LNAT as well as providing tips that would help me in both the multiple choice and essay portions of the exam. I did a mock exam before proceeding and Steve identified areas of improvement so that our sessions would be very targeted at areas that would help me achieve as high a score as possible on the actual exam.
Indrani is an encouraging and helpful teacher. I was always unsure about maths and struggled a lot with exam questions. Indrani patiently helped me with my understanding and concepts. She gave me a lot of confidence and guidance throughout the lessons. It was very thoughtful of her to allow me bombarding her email with more maths questions. I would highly recommend her to students who need a confidence boost.
It was clear from the get-go that Richard is very passionate about what he teaches. Rather than just showing you how to do a question, he also takes great care to explain and ensure that you truly understand the concepts involved. Especially as the pace of lessons at school can be quite fast, I found my lessons with Richard to be very helpful in regards to reviewing and consolidating my understanding. He also put together question banks for me to practice in my own time and was always happy to troubleshoot any problem I encountered, big or small. I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and the many 'aha' moments we shared — thank you Richard!
Jonathan is a great tutor, through his humorous and unconventional teaching style, he engages me to think critically and makes lessons enjoyable. He has helped me a lot with my EE, TOK and English. His teaching style benefited me greatly and I looked forward to lessons where I could work diligently. His lessons are the reason as to why I do not need to study English most of the time, even before a test and still be able to achieve high scores. Overall he is a great teacher and I would definitely recommend him for lazy students that do not want to work hard but still want good marks!
One thing that struck me most when I was taking lessons with Jonathan was his ability to cater each class to my specific needs. He was extremely helpful not only in equipping me with the necessary skills and mindset to take the final IB examination, but would also use various methods of teaching that would benefit me most during our classes. I remember vividly during one lesson a week before the final examination, we were working on my ability to quickly identify literary features in online articles, and I was particularly struggling in the aspect of speed. We then switched to an activity where we would each list out all identifiable literary features from a text line by line and would compare our answers. That switch in training not only sparked my competitive nature which benefitted me in working under a time limit, but made me realise the immense amount of valuable points I would usually miss when reading through passages. The gist of this would be that I was greatly benefitted by the way each class was customised not only to my educational needs, but also to my style of learning and thought processes. I have enrolled in my fair share of English tutorial classes, and my most significant improvements have all been made while working with Jonathan. I was predicted a low 6 for English A SL prior to the final exams, but after months of work with Jonathan was able to obtain a high 7 in my final IB exams within the 90% range. Jonathan’s classes did not help me right away, and I only began to notice the fruits of our labour after a couple of classes. But I believe that that is the point of his classes. Rote learning and memorising of various examination techniques would not have gotten me as far as I did. Yet, through his classes, I was able to gain a more in-depth understanding of the writing styles necessary to achieve high scores, and internalised fundamental skills that I used effectively in the final examination.
Johnathan is experienced and truly cares about his students. He helps his students reach their full potential by learning about their needs, interests, and abilities. He has supported me through IB English and TOK.
I highly recommend Jonathan Wilson. He guides my daughter with patience. He has been teaching my daughter history for two years and her analytical skills have improved a lot.
I thoroughly enjoyed my essay-writing classes with Levi, where we went deep into each essay question and discussed the nuances and ways to approach it. Besides the conventional essay-writing techniques, Levi taught me to enhance my thesis and arguments and introduced me to many real-life examples that reinforce my arguments, which I still find useful when brainstorming ideas at the university level. While going through essays that I have written, Levi would pinpoint specific areas of improvement before taking me through his approach to the question so that I would understand how I could improve on my line of reasoning, as well as alternatives to it. With Levi, each essay became a learning opportunity for me to discover and discuss various issues, ranging from current affairs to ethical questions. He constantly pushed me to think beyond the superficial level and, crucially, taught me that there is always a different perspective and no single answer to a question.
Levi was one of the best English tutors I’ve ever had. Our lessons were always intellectually stimulating, and analysing literary texts with him inevitably led to inspiring contextual and theoretical discussions. Whenever I encountered difficulties, he would guide me through my thought process and encourage me to voice out my ideas, attentively responding to each of them and pushing me to go further. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with him as he helped me greatly improve my writing and study skills.
As I’ve always had an acute fear of Mathematics, I was extremely grateful to receive Indrani’s tutoring. Indrani was very patient and kind when I struggled over simple problems, and she methodically explained every solution so that I could follow through step by step. She helped me regain confidence in my abilities, continuously reassuring me that I was capable. I would highly recommend working with her, especially for students that aim to break through self-esteem barriers and reach their full potential.
Taking Physics lessons with Indrani was one of the best decisions I made during IB. As a non-STEM student, Indrani was able to break down complex Physics concepts into its components, helping me understand things at a clearer and deeper level. Not only that, but I found her method of drawing diagrams very useful as a visual learner. Most of all, I will also always appreciate how she always checks up on her students’ mental health. I highly recommend Indrani!
In the summer before my junior year of high school, Indrani provided me with the foundations of Calculus in preparation for the accelerated course I would be taking during the school year. Then, next summer, she helped me once more with Multivariable Calculus, as well as Physics. Without a doubt, the vast amount of pre-learning she helped me accomplish gave me more confidence in those subjects that I otherwise would have struggled with during the school year; moreover, I was able to find genuine enjoyment in those subjects, largely thanks to Indrani’s enthusiastic and optimistic teaching style. From her, I learned that the challenge of a Math or Physics problem only makes finding the solution more satisfying! And having taken both Physics and Calculus courses in my first year of college, I can say that this lesson definitely still applies!
Indrani supplemented my learning throughout my Physics A-Levels. She approached concepts in different ways which allowed me form more solid understandings. Indrani also helped me prepare for my UCAT and BMAT tests. Not only is she an excellent tutor, but she is also very encouraging and kind, which really motivated me. All in all, it was absolutely delightful to work with Indrani, and I could not have done it without her!
Karin is insightful and presses her students to think more about the topics they discuss. Her tutelage has proven invaluable for my studies in Oxford, and for developing my argumentation and oration in general.
Tutoring with Karin was an amazing experience. Her lessons are immensely well-structured, going through each step of English literary analysis thoroughly and clearly. She also always encouraged me to discuss my thoughts confidently, whilst sneaking in a joke or two to keep things fun and lighthearted! It’s thanks to Karin that I was not only able to score a Level 7 in HL IB Eng Lit, but also motivated to pursue English at university. I highly recommend Karin!
Richard really helped me better understand mathematical concepts that I struggled with and was able to use his extensive knowledge of the Math SL curriculum and past papers to help me better grasp core components of those concepts by breaking down the questions. He ensured that I better understand the concepts and am going into the exam knowing all the steps to achieve full marks in preparation for whatever the examiners can throw at me.
