Testimonials for Jack Atkinson
GCSE Preparation May 2019
"I had a lovely chat with B yesterday - he really likes Jack. He was commenting on how he recognised and appreciated the support in place. I think Jack could be an extremely positive role model for B. In the past, B has not wanted to appear 'keen' in terms of academic work at school. We've talked about the 'swan' metaphor - paddling fast under the water line so you can appear relaxed on top. Anyway I mentioned that I thought Jack must be quite keen to be doing as well as he is. A perceptive B said. 'No mum - he's motivated' - aha a vital difference! All very heart-warming stuff - and I thought I'd share!

“Jack is smiley and friendly. He quickly understood my level and tailored my sessions to suit me. He is very patient and gave me lots of examples of how to solve maths problems and allowed me to take them home. I very much enjoyed the sessions.”
Ella Hodges, Year 8 student
“Jack has provided my daughter with increased energy and enthusiasm for science and maths. It was important for me to have someone on her wave length and closer to her age share their passion for these subjects. He has been able to show her ways of learning and insights that she was able to grasp quickly. They worked through maths problems together which strengthened her levels of understanding as well as going over topics that she wasn’t sure about. My daughter comes away from each session with renewed enthusiasm and deeper levels of knowledge.”
Victoria Wakely, Mother of Year 10 student.
“Our son has seen Jack for weekly sessions over the summer holidays to consolidate the previous year and prepare for the next after, what has clearly been a very social year for him, but perhaps not the most academically busy! End of year exams whilst being okay weren't what were expected by the school and our son realised he needed to put some work in to prepare for options year.
Jack has not only gone over factual content, but also the accuracy that will be expected. He's made learning fun again and been an extremely positive role model in terms of temperament, attitude and work ethic.
Jack has been flexible in his approach and at our request organised sessions so they can take a few short breaks to give our son an opportunity to catch his breath! These breaks have turned into very rewarding 'chats' about plans, the future etc. They've prompted our son to think about his future plans, which has motivating for him.
We can't recommend Jack highly enough!

"Jack is a fantastic tutor (must take after his mum!) Also, from a parent’s point of view, I’d like to add that Jack is very professional, friendly and approachable; he is understanding of different needs and lessons are good value for money! We couldn’t ask for more and L will be back for A level tuition if Jack is interested?"

"E really felt he benefitted from Jack’s tutoring sessions. He said that Jack explained the subjects really clearly and in a better way than his teachers. He said he came out of the sessions having an excellent understanding of the topics".
