"We were in need of an IB tutor, who could tutor on-line, for my son in both French and Spanish - and we came up trumps within 24 hours. But the real key to our success, and our contentment, is that the tutor we are now working with is absolutely exceptional. We are now three months into a programme of work with Nick that will run through until final exams next spring and I cannot praise him highly enough. Nick is highly skilled and professional, patient, caring, adaptable (necessary for the slightly random ways that a teenage diary works!) and above all absolutely dedicated to really making a positive and meaningful contribution to my son's education and development as a person. The IB is a rewarding but incredibly a hard path for any person to embark on and frankly, without Nick, we would not be where we are now. For that, I cannot thank him enough."
"In preparation for my forthcoming trip to Peru, Nick has tailored my Spanish tuition in order for me to learn South American Spanish in relaxed and informative private tuition"
Tuition from Nick has enabled me to prepare for a forthcoming trip to Peru. His professional tuition has given me confidence to converse in many situations a tourist is likely to need in South America."

"Why were there no Nick Rawsons teaching at school ? If there had been I would have been a straight A student. Nick has been so inspirational to my friend Tommy and me and allowed us to visit Spain and feel very confident in speaking with the local people and engaging in conversations. The encouragement that Nick has provided, coupled with his ability to assess intellectual capability and processing of his students is remarkable. It allows you to go at the pace that works for you and hence you enjoy the process, which let’s face it, should be what learning is about.
The passion that Nick has for languages in addition to his encyclopaedic knowledge of life, makes the lessons something that we look forward to on a weekly basis."

"When we realised that our daughter was being taught GCSE Latin at school by a teacher not qualified in Latin, and her grades had dropped dramatically just months before the exam, we contacted Nick. From January to June (2014) Nick provided 1:1 tuition; our daughter went from a D to an A grade in the final exam. We can't rate him highly enough."

"Nick provided one hour a week tuition to my son who was studying gcse Latin. My son was overwhelmed, anxious he would fail and frankly struggling. I witnessed first hand a marked improvement almost as soon as the tuition began. Nick was able to explain things in a way that made sense and provide some clear structure to his study time. My son did achieve a very respectable grade at GCSE. This would not have been possible without the one to one support and direction he got from Nick."
