Tommy is a wonderful tutor that really helps you feel as though challenging work is easy and approachable. He explains things in a simple and thorough way which allows you to apply step by step procedures to every problem. I wouldn't have been so calm and ready for the exam without him!

Absolute gun. His ability to help you generate ideas and create a deeper understanding of the concepts improved my scores immensely in section 2 of the GAMSAT. Definitely worth considering.

Tommy is an extremely dedicated and diligent tutor. He has a friendly, kind and patient personality and is very approachable. He has a deep understanding of difficult concepts, but is able to convey ideas clearly.
He has a great deal of life experience travelling around the world and in the army, so is a great person to go to for advice about work-life balance and getting the most out of your degree.
I would highly recommend Tommy for any student who wants to excel in their studies while having fun!
