I really appreciate Ryan's gentle and patient approach

5
My young kids have been getting Ryan’s weekly online lesson for a year and that would be the proof that he definitely knows how to make the children engage to learning process. I really appreciate his gentle and patient approach with big smile toward kids and am so pleased whenever I see them paying full attention during lesson. Lessons are well structured upon the kids’ level and progress. Moreover, diligent feedbacks after each lesson gives me clear idea where my kids are in. He has so much helped my kids to improve English so far, and I therefore highly recommend Ryan.

Thank you Ryan for your patience and tenacity with Douglas. The results speak for themselves.

Ryan is a gentle, kind and patient tutor who is clearly passionate about his subjects and helping his students reach their goals.

He managed to coach our son, encouraging him, challenging him and getting him engaged and actually enjoying the work.


Through Ryan's tutoring and support, our son went from a clear 'fail' with his English language to achieving a 7 in his mock result. A huge relief considering that now, having not been able to take his GCSE's this year like all his year, because of Covid19, his GCSE English grade will be reliant on the Mock result and his teacher's assessment

His teacher had commented at the time how much of a difference she had seen in our son's attitude, understanding and confidence and we attribute a large amount of that to the help he received from Ryan.

My daughter's English language and creative thinking has improved vastly

Ryan has been tutoring my daughter for over a year now. The sessions are once a week and had been face to face up until lockdown. The sessions are now via zoom.

Ryan ensures the sessions are structured and he sets homework to compliment the learning. My daughter's English language and creative thinking has improved vastly. She enjoys her sessions. I would highly recommend Ryan.
