Appointment testimonials


"Very helpful, everything explained clearly and good guidance."

"The advisor was really helpful. They would not be afraid to say they weren't 100% sure about something and would look it up to confirm for me."


"The advisor explained the steps in a very detailed way but in a manner which was comprehensible to a non-math background person like me. The best thing is that he removes your inhibitions of math and engages you to freely discuss the issue. He provided reference material and pointed out both the subtle and obvious mistakes in my reasoning. I learnt a lot and I am very happy."

Biological Sciences

"Was made to feel very at ease and that no question was a stupid question. Every question and problem I had was answered in the best way possible. The advisor is lovely and so helpful."

Biomedical Sciences

"Extremely helpful! The advisor explained everything in loads of detail but in a way that was extremely easy to understand. I now feel very confident in what I am doing after his support."


"The advisor helped point me in the right direction and had all the answers! I am very very impressed with how quickly I got such good quality help."

"The advisor was really helpful - I had been struggling with statistical tests for a few days but they answered all of my questions and made me feel a lot more confident. They also provided a thorough follow-up email. I will definitely use this service again and encourage my friends to!"


"The advisor actually breaks things down into understandable steps rather than repeating things using the same words like other stats teachers. They make it fun (dare I say) to learn about which I didn't think was possible. Very positive, motivating and gives me more confidence with stats and in my abilities, which is very valuable."
