"Just wanted to thank you for recommending Jason to us. He has achieved a miracle with my son, who got his top mark with merit for Common Entrance exam at Westminster!!! His enthusiasm and patience together with love of the subject has passed on to my son who dreaded the school lessons, let alone homework in Latin. Jason was so understanding and accommodating as our timetable kept changing, that any other teacher would have probably given up on us! He is a gem! Thank you once again."Mother of 13+ Latin Student
"My son received his CE results from Eton and he managed to secure an A in Latin...my son is the first one to know how instrumental you have been in helping him in those weeks leading to the exam - he learned tons, developed a greater passion for the subject and was truly inspired by your teaching and character."Mother of Common Entrance Latin student
