“Hi Andrew, I just wanted to say thank-you for having brought some much-needed inspiration to COLA-I this year…Best wishes, C”

"Thanks for your hard work and enthusiasm with the food technology lessons." C

“Ofsted loved the Jesus in Art lessons!” T

"Please don't leave you're everyone's favourite teacher, you make learning fun"… "you taught me life has a meaning..."

“I basically wanted just to thank you sir for being such a good teacher, we all miss your lessons here.”

"Rating: 5/5, Within a few months of tutoring with Andrew, I was able to improve my D grades to A grade work in philosophy and politics. Andrew has great knowledge in these subjects and is able to simplify hard topics. As an examiner, he was able to solve my difficulty in understanding the vague mark schemes and finding model answers. Andrew showed me exactly what an A* essay looks like and how I can achieve it by correcting my essays and turning them into model answers himself. This made me realise how achieving A/A* grades is much easier than I thought!

This was also my first experience of online tutoring, I was very skeptical at first but quickly realised how time saving and useful it can be. I am still able to hand write essays and receive feedback from Andrew by email before even starting the hourly Skype sessions. This way I feel supported throughout the whole week."

“Hi, I got all A*s! Thank you so much for your tuition and I would recommend you to anyone...”

"I got my results yesterday and everything went better than expected, I got 100 UMS for both Philosophy and ethics!" T

"Andrew Yiallouros tutored my son in his first year at Sussex University in International Relations. His Attitude was professional, his time-keeping was good, his grasp of the subject strong and he was a warm and effective tutor, friendly as well as efficient. I would recommend him as a personal tutor or teacher." Philippa Gregory (Author)
