"I wanted to write to you to tell you how pleased we were with the results we got from working with Josh who you introduced us to start of 2021. My daughter was in year 5 at the time so we were relatively late to tutoring compared to some of her peers.
Though our daughter had a good grounding and support from her prep school I know that working with Josh was a huge factor in her success. She’s just had offers from CLSG, Jags, Alleyn's, Sevenoaks and an academic scholarship at St Dunstan’s. The first three would have been considered stretch options for her when we started the process.
If you ever want me to do a reference for Josh I’d be delighted to as our experience has been great. We didn’t do any extra work with our daughter ourselves so Josh did all the out of school work. As well as making sure she was confident on the basics and techniques required generally he proactively worked with her on past papers for specific schools - for example highlighting the different approach to some maths questions for City and what they were looking for. His style also worked really well for us as he’s very calm about the whole process and was able to make her feel comfortable very quickly. She really enjoyed working with him and remained enthusiastic about her lessons throughout which made everything easier for me!
Thank you to you too Lawrence for finding Josh for us.
