Carlo - Atul- STEP - Admissions
16th June 2023
Just had my last class - the guy's an amazing tutor, always knows the subject content very well and his attitude towards work and exams is awesome and it gives you a good insight into what you should be doing to prepare for an exam, but also how you should approach it and aspects like that. I thoroughly enjoyed working through questions with him and I feel there was a valuable lesson to be learnt in each such case, but also I enjoyed the periods in which he would explain a new concept or talk about something off the specification - provided you're on board. Overall an excellent tutor whom I'd highly recommend for anyone who wants to progress in Maths.
