"My daughter wished to apply to Oxbridge but felt helpless as to how to tackle all parts of the application and develop the right skills and strategies needed for a competitive application. Thanks to her tutor Andy, she was able to build up her knowledge of Literature, learn new approaches and perspectives and received all guidance and support she needed over the several months of the application process. Last week, my daughter was offered a place in the college to which she applied. Altogether, Andy’s help was invaluable."Mother of Oxford English Candidate
