"Peter was excellent at providing support for my 17 year old son with an Economics A Level Extended Essay. He engaged well with my son, understood the subject matter and provided the support he needed. He helped my son feel confident about his understanding of the subject and essay he had written. "

"Peter was very helpful in achieving all of my goals. I didn't realise how beneficial a tutor's knowledge and advice could be, until I had sessions with Peter.
The most important aspect, that made the difference from previous efforts to achieve my goals, was Peter's understanding of the course syllabus (this was obviously derived from Peter's extensive experience with the course.)
I wish Peter all the best."

"Peter was extremely helpful in tutoring my son for his IB Standard Economics exam. His knowledge of the subject was very thorough and he conveyed the information in a very clear, concise and understandable manner. He also assisted in reviewing past papers which was very useful.
We were very satisfied with his help and my son found Peter approachable and flexible.
I would definitely recommend him!"
