Testimonials for Barney Maunder-Taylor:

Barney is an amazing maths tutor. You cannot help but be inspired by Barney's enthusiasm and energy, which are infectious and tremendously motivating. Not only did Barney give Tom the skills and confidence to pass his exams, which meant that he got a place at Amsterdam University, but he also made Tom's lessons interesting; he actually enjoyed doing maths at 8pm on a weekday night!

THE WELLS FAMILY, 'I.B.' (A-level equivalent)

After speaking to Barney we have never looked back! He has a great method of teaching, with a kind nature and positive approach. Charlotte's confidence has increased dramatically thanks to Barney and she has now gone on to study 'A' level Maths at sixth Form.

N. ALCOCK (daughter's predicted grade: 'B', achieved: 'A')

My University course requires a heavy understanding of maths ranging from matrices, algebra, trigonometry, set theory, vectors etc. Not only was Barney able to get me from a GCSE level of understanding of maths to achieving a first (the highest grade) for my maths exam, but he was able to do so in a clear and concise way. I would also leave with great notes to review and revise with.

C. WETHERLY, Computer Animation at Bournemouth University

Sorry for the delay in sharing my news at passing my Maths Exam - Yay! Thankyou so much for your support, I couldn't have done it without you. Carrying the 'gremlins of maths' all my life, although I hate to admit - I actually started to enjoy it!
