From parents: 

 

I have known Serban for over 5 years now. He is teaching my children who are in GCSE , year 8 and year 3 for English Language and Literature. Serban is always punctual, his teaching style is unique and my sons love it. His attitude towards teaching is exceptional and my children enjoy his teaching methods. I can see a great difference in my children’s performance at school. They are always happy to see him and enjoy his lessons. I will definitely recommend Serban for teaching without any hesitation. My children never get bored with Serban’s lessons as he goes that extra mile in delivering what required to keep them concentrate during lesson time.

Serban is a really great tutor. He always puts my children’s needs at the centre of his sessions and consults with me about what their current learning priorities are. He goes at their pace and manages to explain every topic in a way that they can fully understand. He’ll offer challenge or slow down in a very flexible way, depending on where each child is in their learning. He is really approachable and my children have really taken well to working with him.

Serban is a wonderful teacher. He is very punctual to lessons and my children found him extremely helpful as he gave a variety of notes, went through each of the topics in depth and focussed on their weaknesses in order to improve them in an interesting manner. The level of individual care is very good as he emailed my children with extra notes and websites relating to their work. As a result of this, they achieved high grades in their GCSEs. He also aided myself with proofreading for my university assignments.

Our son was diagnosed with severe ADHD at the end of last year and it was apparent that the school environment wasn’t right for him.  He is also dyslexic and his confidence was at rock bottom.  Serban started to home tutor our son and within weeks we could see a major difference.  He really looked forward to his lessons and was for once keen to do the homework set.  But, the point we noticed most as a family was that he started to take a real interest in the books he was studying and was happy to discuss them with the rest of the family.  His results improved from a Grade 4 to high Grade 7’s in a very short period of time.  It’s just a shame he hasn’t been able to sit the actually exams his year, as he was actually looking forward to them.  We would highly recommend Serban as tutor.

From students:

 

My lessons with Serban were really enjoyable and very ‘unlike’ school.  He treated me as an equal and made the lessons really enjoyable and fun.  I particularly enjoyed the creative writing side of the exam preparation and the way that he could make the classics seem really interesting, something school has never managed to do.  Serban gave me confidence to feel that I could answer the questions to the standard that the exam boards were looking for in a very short period of time.  I’m really disappointed that I won’t be able to show him how much I’ve learnt as GCSEs have been cancelled this year.

Excellent tutor. I am learning conversational Romanian and he is devising his lessons both to what I need and to how I learn. His approach is very encouraging, with plenty of praise but also lots of repetition. Highly recommended
