    Tom has been helping our Year 5 son for the past few months with maths, literacy and 11+ work. Tom really took the time to understand our son’s needs and adapted his lessons each week to ensure our son was comfortable and engaged with the work he was doing. Tom’s approach to teaching is fun, creative, flexible and engaging. Our son really enjoys his sessions with him and they have given him the confidence to tackle new topics and consolidate learning in areas where he previously had questions. I would wholeheartedly recommend Tom as a tutor, particularly for a child who is reluctant to learn or lacks confidence within the classroom environment.

    Our daughter had been getting further and further behind in her maths during years 3-5, we’d had a couple of tutors before but nobody seemed to quite click. Enter Tom, what a difference he’s made in a short space of time ! Tom has built a good foundation for Claire, enabling her to catch up and make some much needed progress. Claire’s confidence is growing as Tom’s tutoring style is fun and engaging. Tom’s very patient and provides little incentives along the way to keep going ! Tom brings a fresh approach to tutoring, no hint of “Victorian” style teaching shall we say and Claire looks forward to her sessions with Tom. Thank you Tom for being so flexible and for helping Claire over the past 8 months.

    Re Tom Hyland. Tom joined us at a critical period, just prior to Year 6 SATS when my daughter Alyx was losing confidence in maths by the day! I can honestly say that after just week 1, Alyx’s demeanour was transformed back to her happy, smiley self! Tom’s teaching style was wonderfully effective and layed back which allowed room to learn and flourish! Even on a Friday afternoon, Alyx raced home from school in anticipation of seeing Tom. Thank you!!
