Leo has a way that inspired Josh around his learning, helped him tackle new tasks and improve his skills. He was great at understanding the best learning styles for Josh, how to meet his school curriculum needs and working towards school entry exams. Josh is blossoming now. Thanks Leo! – Amanda
Leo came highly recommended and I have to say we were not disappointed. He tutored our 10 year old son in English – focusing on creative and factual writing – prior to sitting common entrance exams for secondary schools. We found Leo to be enthusiastic, reliable and punctual. Our son – to his surprise -found the sessions enjoyable and began to look forward to them. According to him Leo ‘made things which weren’t fun, fun’. Leo uses creative and imaginative teaching methods and so made the lessons interesting. He was always encouraging and our son was therefore keen to do well. Each session finished with some sort of a word game. Our son’s writing improved greatly, he sat two school entrance exams with increased confidence and we are happy to say he was offered scholarships to both. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Leo as a committed, knowledgeable and fun teacher. – Claire

My Passion And How I Inspire
I create a fun but structured environment in which students can build up their confidence and learn to master their subjects. When it comes to teaching core skills, I like to incorporate a range of games and activities into my teaching before applying the knowledge in a more conventional format. I always adapt my style to the student’s needs and teach with the conviction that everyone learns best when they’re engaged and having fun.
