Recent Testimonials / Reviews for Alan Woods, Science Tution in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire:
"Just a formal 'thank you' for what you achieved with our son Tom with just 3 sessions of tutoring. At Christmas he was being assessed by the school as a 'low C' in his first year of GCSE chemistry. He had lost confidence in his ability and was genuinely struggling and disinterested. After the tutoring sessions he was able to re-engage with the subject and he quietly proceeded to surprise his teachers (and possibly himself) by achieving an A* in the end of year exam. We are so grateful to you for making this possible, and would certainly recommend your services. If he shows any signs of struggling again we'll be on the 'phone! Thanks again."
"In only a few lessons Alan Woods got my son up from a 'B' grade to an A* in GCSE Chemistry and my son said it didn't even feel like hard work! Alan explains things in a way that makes it very easy to understand and he knows what the examiners are looking for."
"Alan tutored my daughter in science and did a fantastic job. She had developed epilepsy during year 10 and this really affected her learning and memory to the extent that she could only be entered for the foundation paper. However, as a result of Alan's help she achieved 100% in core science and 98% in additional science. This was a fantastic result for her of which she is very proud. Alan's teaching style really helped her because he loves his subject, explains things clearly and uses practical activities as a way of helping learners remember and understand. He is also very reliable and trustworthy and we are so pleased we found him. I would recommend Alan without reservation."
"Thank you so much for helping Josh get his A*. You honed his exam technique so well hehad full marks in his last paper!
He is off to Cambridge in Oct!
"The proof of Alan's ability as an excellent teacher was the 30% increase in my son's marks after one lesson.
My son described Alan's teaching style as 'charismatic' "
"Mr Woods has been such a great tutor. I had started off my AS Level Chemistry getting very low grades. Once Mr Woods started tutoring me my grades improved significantly with me getting A's. Not only do you learn a lot from his sessions you also have fun!
I truly recommend him as he has a real passion for chemistry which reflects in his teaching and he makes the subject very interesting. I would give him 5/5 for the way that he has taught me."
