Thanks a lot! I passed!
The resources were really helpful. I don't think that the the four practice tests on the DofE website are enough so it's useful to have other questions to go over.

Thanks so much David!!
Guess what! I only went and passed 1st time!!? Can you believe it??!
Thank you so much for the encouragement, words of wisdom, top tips and your general calm and caring approach. Who would have believed that a few weeks ago, when i made that initial phone call to you and averaging 50% online that I'd be sending you this email today!? I have already recommended you to friends, even prior to passing today, and will continue to do so. You've been fab!
I really couldn't have done it without you. Thanks to your lovely wife too for the endless cups of tea and snacks to keep me going. I did have to say "yippee" quite a few times to myself during the test, but that and half a bottle of rescue remedy seemed to do the trick!
Thanks again, One very happy customer

Two pass qts maths test at 3rd attempt with intense tuition

Ellie contacted me : "It's my last attempt I've got no confidence left and it'd be great if you could help"
We fixed up a convenient date, she drove from South London for a couple of hours intense qts maths tuition and took the qts numeracy test the next day.

The result:
- "I passed my test today David! Thank you for all your help!! "

Abby contacted me in late April and asked for help to pass her last chance. She was really stressing about her qts maths test and thought some 1-1 help would really help. She had a two hour and a one hour intense qts maths session and took the test the next day.

The result
- "Hi David, Just to let you know that I took the qts maths skills test today and passed! Thanks so much for your help, the techniques you taught me really helped me with the mental arithmetic." Thanks again,
Abby, May 29, 2014
