"The support and guidance Robin provided me was truly invaluable. He helped me to grasp multiple forms of analysis and understand statistics in a way which I have not found before. I would recommend him in the highest regard."

"Robin is the most encouraging and enthusiastic maths tutor; he has helped me understand maths in a way that no one has done before. My confidence in maths grew and I really enjoyed studying maths again. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a positive and motivating tutor!"

"After working with Robin my daughter's confidence and attainment has massively improved.  From low confidence and erratic results to consistently top of the set.  In her words, 'He teaches maths how it should be taught.'"

"Robin is a hugely able and passionate mathematician with a rare gift of getting alongside a young person."

"Robin is a highly professional maths tutor in all respects. My son had lost his confidence with maths and has regained it since Robin has been teaching him. He is the best we have come across."

“Robin was the best tutor I have ever had! He is fun, vibrant, has so many interesting stories to share and is a great mentor. My lessons were always fun and I never saw the time pass.

I recommend him unreservedly and lucky is the student who will be taught by Robin!”

"Our son was in despair about his Maths and was convinced he would never pass his GCSE. Robin was not only patient but, most importantly, very encouraging, so much so that our son completely turned a corner and ended up with an A*"
