OUR VERDICT: We all think it's fantastic, the lessons are simple to follow along, we can see an improvement already and it can be done anywhere; before or after school, after soccer, or whenever suits your busy schedules. It is also great if your kids are finding a particular area of maths difficult or need some additional explaining, you can do the lessons that are needed at any particular time and can re-visit them when needed. Plus, it's on a computer or i-pad that kids just love being on technology. The teacher, Simon is fantastic, easy to understand, breaks things down so simply and...Read more

I worked with Simon in central London and he was obviously a natural as a teacher. He has high standards in the classroom and a real sense of aspiration to high standards for all the children. Simon has an intuitive sense of where the child is academically and an excellent plan for how to move them on. A central strength of Simon's work is an appreciation of what children will enjoy doing that will bring them benefit and progress - both in the classroom and out.
Quite simply, Simon is one of the most outstanding teachers I have had the pleasure of working with in my 32 years in the independent sector.
Simon is a dedicated, caring and experienced educator who strives both to understand and cater for the individual needs of the students in his care. He builds a positive rapport with students, who respond to his structured, calm and systematic approach to learning.
Simon taught our son Angus in Year 4, helping him through what was at the time a challenging transition to a new school. I can honestly say that Simon played a major role in helping Angus become the happy, confident and capable young man he is today, and we fondly remember Simon as one of the best teachers Angus has ever had.
