"Oli has worked with our son on a weekly basis for the past six months. Following a shock set of A level results his confidence took a battering and he has struggled to settle at university having gained a place at Liverpool to study International Politics through clearing. My son was recently diagnosed as dyslexic and Oli has been an invaluable support to him, helping him settle into his academic studies and working tirelessly to build his confidence. Oli has been instrumental in helping him with effective study strategies giving him the tools to plan and produce essays and revise for end of module exams. Oli relates so well to my son and and has offered patient and caring moral support as well as outstanding academic teaching. Oli is always on hand to help and is totally committed to my son's academic progress and wellbeing. We are delighted with the service which he has provided, not only my son but us, as parents"Mother of University student
