"To Whom It May Concern Re Andrew, Specialised Math Tutor We used Andrew to help our year 4 son gain confidence in maths after a particularly difficult year. Casey's teacher was not the approachable type and Casey just buried himself at the back of the maths class hoping he wouldn't get asked a question. His tests all came back with very poor results and "see me", bet there seemed to be no following up and no time to explain the maths to him on a one on one basis. By the end of the year he was convinced he was hopeless at maths and would never understand it. So we embarked on "getting a tutor" for Casey, during the summer holidays, so that he'd feel more positive about maths at the start of year 5. After his first lesson with Andrew Casey showed more positivity and after six or seven lessons started talking about "getting an A in maths". He was always keen to go to his lesson (unlike Kumon, which I'd tried the year prior) and he showed a concentration level I never dreamed of. Each lesson was an hour and a half, on Andrew's recommendation, and I could scarcely believe that Casey remained focused and attentive throughout the whole session. Every time. Of course getting him to do the worksheets for homework was a little harder but nonetheless Andrew had made enough of an impression that Casey didn't want to disappoint him. So he worked quite hard at home to make progress on the sheets that Andrew emailed to me, regularly and without fail - and with answers! Furthermore, Andrew was always prompt, never let us down with attendance, and was always readily available on his mobile or via email. I received updates on Casey's progress and felt that Andrew was as personally invested in Casey's education as we were. Upon returning to school Casey has continued going from strength to strength in his math skills, his confidence has grown by leaps and bounds and instead of being demoralised with new content he's enthusiastic and willing to do his homework. An ideal situation for any parent. In short, I can recommend Andrew very highly as he is a specialised maths tutor, which is not easy to find, and he turned Casey round from hating maths to being the student who helps the kid next to him. Please don't hesitate to contact me regarding Andrew - I would be delighted to speak to you personally to commend him. Sincerely Heidi Wooller"
