Thanks so much for your support and patience.

*** got full marks in both papers! How good is that!... Over the moon... I know this will be a huge boost to her confidence!

Thanks very much for all of your help. You have done a really great job.

She says she really enjoys the subject and that together with the school tutors and yourself she thinks it's made a real difference to her understanding and exam technique.  So thank you for all your time and effort in assisting her over the last month or so.

Felicity's quote: " Mr. Oakes is ace. I was getting D's and E's and without him I wouldn't have got my A."

My 13 year-old son went for a course of maths lessons at Oakes Tutors and Consultancy as I was concerned that he was not fulfilling his potential. Not only has he maintained his place in set 1; he has also achieved 97-100 percent in every maths test taken in the six months since the course completion! Now his younger brother is attending classes for a thorough grounding and confidence boost at the start of Key Stage 3, and I would recommend the Consultancy to anyone in similar circumstances.

Thank you for the fantastic tuition and mentoring that you've given to Rob for the past year. He passed his 11+ for grammar school with a very high mark, and after a further year of maths tuition, he is very well prepared for the fast academic pace of his new school

Knowing my ambition was to attend university to study Mathematics I felt that a more in-depth and rigorous knowledge of the topics that I was studying at A-Level Maths and Further Maths would be invaluable. Dominic provided this. He was also able to provide help with Physics A-Level topics when needed. His enthusiastic, friendly yet relaxed methods of teaching made the sessions enjoyable. He was able to ensure that the basic topic was secure and then progress onto very deep and challenging mathematics. The ability to email problems when encountered and receive a reply within 24 hours was useful and made the study time more efficient. Dominic helped me achieve A*AAAbb, exceeding the grades I needed to enter my Masters course at the University of St Andrews. Not only has he helped me with my A-Levels, he has insisted that I get in touch if I ever encounter a problem with my degree and this support is very welcome and comforting.

 Ben did very well he got a good A in physics and he did well in other exams overall ... Thanks for your help it def helped ben to up his grade and we were really pleased that he did so well in physics.

thanks very much! thanks for all your help too much appreciated.

Thank you so much for all the help over the last year, I know I wouldn't have got the grades I did without it.

Hi Dominic just to say thank you for the help you gave Liam, he got 2 A* & 2A and has his place in Manchester

Thankyou so much for all your help!

Nick is cock-a-hoop with his A from the resits.  Well done to you.  He has no doubt that your help was instrumental in gaining this.  He also acknowledges that you have helped him in his more relaxed and mature approach overall - which we are sure will be a big bonus as he goes into 6th form.

Hi Dominic, we just wanted to inform you Arran passed his CE Exams and performed well in his Kings maths paper (86% and 94% = 90% average). ... There was nothing he did not know. Thank you for your help.

Just to let you know dominic that Tesni got an A* in her maths GCSE with a total ums score of 183.  Thank you for all your help.  She is now taking additional maths in the summer so i am sure we will call on your services soon.

Receiving the packs on each topic was very beneficial and helped me target my weak spots

The mind map was good for seeing what needed to be learnt

excellent! It was really helpful and helped me become a more confident mathematician

Really good and the one to one tuition helps with everything you don’t understand

Really useful; well worth coming!

The revision session made clear all the small points that made a difference to understanding the whole question. Usually I knew how to do most of it but the revision session allowed me to go further than I could ever have gone.

Really suggest coming to the session. It really helps everyone from if you need help with everything to just brushing up.

Really helped me consolidate my knowledge, thank you

Really helped to boost my confidence ready for the exam. Would recommend to anyone who is worrying about the exam at all

Mr Oakes has managed to teach me some very important parts of maths whilst keeping it interesting and fun

If I didn’t understand, it was explained thoroughly
Im sorry it took me a while to send this, I have been having some problems with my e-mail. I just wanted to say that I got an A in my maths exam and i was 2.5% off an A*! Thank you for all of the help that you gave me, i am taking A-level maths and i will probably be coming back to you before that because you where extremely helpful, I couldn't have done it without you. I will be retaking my exam in the summer to try and get get the A*.

Just thought that you would like to know that *** received her results today and got an A*.  Many thanks for all your support and guidance in helping her to achieve this grade and she will see you next Monday.

It made it very easy to learn; the class size was small which guaranteed a lot of one-to-one tutoring

A very friendly environment, whilst being a good place to learn

Any issues I had with understanding a topic were dealt with. Many resources to help with revision were provided to me.

Thanks for all the help you gave me getting my results.

Thanks again for all your support - both academic and pastoral. We are sure *** wouldn't have done anywhere near as well without your particular brand of tutoring. We will keep in touch.

Thanks for all your help I wouldn’t have done it without you. 

A massive than you for your support in helping *** to pass his A-levels. He has been accepted by Swansea Uni, due in no small part to the extra tuition. He always attended very happily, and made it clear how much this contributed to his understanding & confidence.
