Feedback on the IB English tutors we work with

"Every lesson with Oli is so much more than just an hour of instruction. I learned to think in these classes and that is something I am so grateful for. I must attribute my success in IB also in some part to the revision strategies that I learned during our time together. He is much more than a teacher of English and he really does go the extra mile. Dependable is the word that best describes him in the context of our relationship, and brilliant is the word that defines him generally. There are no safer hands than Oli’s!"

IB English Student

"I am so happy to say that I have received a perfect score of 45/45 in the IB with a 7 in English literature SL and an A (the highest grade) in my extended essay, which we worked on extensively together. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the last 3 years of sessions. More than anything, you made me really love English and for this I am forever in your debt. Thank you so much for pushing me and truly unlocking the joy of studying!"
