Recent testimonials:

"Finnian has been an amazing help to my son and his elder brother before. He is enthusiastic, positive and encouraging. As well as providing exercises and feedback for my son, he has also given him the confidence and tool kit to approach his English scholarship papers with vigour. He achieved an A in his paper and this is a boy who hated English. I put this down to Finnian and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone who needs help and support in this subject."
