Recent testimonials:

"Michael has been a brilliant tutor for my son, always encouraging and supportive, yet also challenging him to think hard and do his very best. Even after just one lesson, my son said he now had a much better understanding of what his English teacher in school was asking of him, and how to work with a text. He also said Michael made him feel very happy, because he felt praised and appreciated. My son has thrived under Michael's very capable instruction, and has done very well in the exam, after less than half a year of tutoring. "
