"We have been very pleased with Anthony's help and advice. He has been punctual and reliable in terms of the lessons and he also explained things in a clear and helpful way. He gave constructive advice while encouraging my son to think about the issues and reach his own conclusions. He has a friendly style and got on well with my son and always responded quickly to any emails etc from me.
I would recommend him to other parents and students without hesitation."
