We were considerably anxious regarding our son’s maths progressions as we felt unable to adequately help his confusion with some key topics. With the outstanding help from HD Tuition, our son has ultimately achieved a Grade 7 which was two grades higher than his mock’s.

It was always so easy to make any enquires and then book weekly slots – without a doubt the tuition paid off and was money well spent! I would highly recommend Mr Durdan to any of our friends’ children who require that extra push for their upcoming GCSE’s.

My son felt the topics were explained well and the small group environment boosted his confidence massively!

Outcome Grade: 7

My daughter enjoyed HD Tuition so much that she is now sad that it’s over – a thought once unimaginable! The tuition has resulted in a clear increase of confidence and interest in the subject, eliminating all my prior concerns about her academic future.

Going down the private tuition route was the best decision we made, and my daughter is certainly in a better place because of it as she always used to be anxious of maths lessons. Mr Durdan managed to put her at ease, believe in her ability and most importantly, inspire her to enjoy maths.

Mr Durdan tutored my son for the last few months before he sat his maths A level. My son had a tough first year with his maths and his confidence in this subject was low. We contacted HD Tuition and from his first visit, my son’s confidence began to grow.

My son’s confidence in the subject was transformed in a few months and he progressed from getting Us, Es and Ds in college assessments to achieving a final grade of B in the actual A level.

We cannot thank HD Tuition enough and would 100% recommend anyone booking their first session!

Outcome Grade: B

During the first COVID-19 lockdown, my son significantly struggled with his maths assignments and he was falling behind so quickly that he began to get overwhelmed and frustrated. However, after each tutoring session with Mr Durdan, my son’s confidence shot up and now I am so relieved.

We will most definitely come back for more help, should my son need it – especially now that he is working towards his GCSE’s. Couldn’t recommend HD Tuition enough!

Darling, GCSE Higher Parent

My son was lucky enough to have Mr Durdan as his maths teacher in Year 7 and he really enjoyed the subject alongside Mr Durdan’s fantastic approach. However, going into Year 8 and 9, my son’s confidence and grades both significantly dropped, and I made the decision to contact HD Tuition to arrange tutoring sessions.

What a decision that was! My son eventually obtained a 6 in his GCSE maths and I truly believe this would not have been possible without Mr Durdan inspiring him to reach his ability and believe in himself.

I am delighted and cannot recommend HD Tuition enough!

Since attending sessions with Mr Durdan at HD Tuition, my daughter’s confidence has significantly increased, and her grades have greatly improved.

Mr Durdan is truly a fantastic tutor and I feel very lucky that my daughter had his excellent help. She genuinely enjoys maths now and is no longer anxious or stressed and so I highly recommend HD Tuition to any struggling student!

The process of having my daughter receive tuition from HD Tuition was very quick and easy – the app made the process much simpler!

My daughter was initially very nervous with regards to maths and was beginning to feel a little defeated by the subject, causing me to become increasingly concerned.

After the time and efforts of Mr Durdan, however, my daughter achieved fantastic results and I couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend HD Tuition.

Attending HD Tuition once a week resulted in my daughter gaining a huge amount of confidence in a very short space of time. She responded to the relaxed atmosphere so well and especially loved the access to the iPad which made a welcome change to using books and pens.

She went from a borderline pass to achieving a Grade 6 and I am so proud of her success! Mr Durdan’s attitude with the students is perfect and ensures quick progress in every child.

I was initially worried that my daughter would have to retake maths whilst at dance college and thanks to HD Tuition, that worry is no more!

Henry has done a fantastic job with my daughter, who is very capable but totally lacked confidence in her own ability. She always felt like everyone else got the answer first and was more worried about the teacher asking her the answer than actually concentrating on the question.

In just a couple of months he raised her predicted grade two levels and she achieved a good pass – I cannot recommend HD Tuition highly enough.

After only a relatively short time with HD Tuition, George has gained massively in confidence and is now being moved up a set for maths; a subject which he has previously struggled with.

He looks forward to his sessions every week and is showing a real enthusiasm for the subject.

Mr Durdan provided extra maths tuition for my daughter leading up to her GCSE’S as she felt like she had fallen behind and had lost confidence in her ability.

It made all the difference he was able to put her at ease, explain things in a way she understood on an individual basis and it paid off. She passed with flying colours. Thank you Mr Durdan!

My daughter was very unsure about maths and had managed to convince herself that she wasn’t any good at all, leading her to ask me for some extra help outside of school.

After contacting HD Tuition and booking weekly sessions, my daughter is so much more confident in maths and has even moved up a set in school! I am so very pleased with her progress and this is solely down to Mr Durdan’s style of teaching!

My daughter comes out of her maths sessions with a huge smile on her face!

Nicky, Year 9 Parent

We were recommended HD Tuition by a friend who had used Henry to help their daughter to improve her maths. Previously we had met Henry whilst he was teaching at Heathfield School; my son only had good things to say about him… so we felt he would be the right person to help our daughter with her confidence issues in maths.

Well, three months later our daughter has been moved up a set and looks forward to her maths lessons. This is all down to Henry’s skills as a tutor and his understanding of how to motivate our young ones.

I would strongly recommend anyone who has a child who is struggling with maths to give HD Tuition a go, I’m sure you won’t regret it!

Andy, Year 9 Parent

I felt helpless, sad and worried about my daughter’s progression in maths, especially as she would get considerably upset and anxious every time she had any maths homework to do.

After easily booking a block of six sessions with Mr Durdan, I very quickly noticed a positive change in my daughter’s attitude to maths. She no longer panics in her maths lessons because she knows she can go through any work she is unsure on with her tutor in their next session.

I am so happy that my daughter is getting the help and support she needs and now I can enjoy watching her reach her potential, instead of watching her struggle. She has now been moved to top set after a year with HD Tuition!

Before starting with HD Tuitions my daughter was extremely worried about her maths and I felt so upset that I could not help her to improve myself. Mr Durdan’s tuition changed everything, and I honestly could not have asked for a better tutor!

My daughter is so much more confident in maths and no longer fears tackling difficult questions. She is leaving school with a pass in maths, and we have HD Tuition to thank for!

Joanne, GCSE Foundation Parent

When my son started his sessions with Mr Durdan, he was already fairly confident but was in need of being pushed further and therefore we felt that extra tuition was the answer.

The process was very easy, and my son absolutely loved the sessions – gaining both interest and confidence. I feel as though the tuition was time very well spent as I know my son has progressed more than he ever would have done at school alone. It made him realise that he was genuinely good at the subject!

I recommend HD Tuition to everyone I speak to – it has been the best thing we did to help my son achieve a good GCSE result.

Diana, GCSE Higher Parent

My son hated maths with a passion and had incredibly low self-esteem, and so as a parent, I was understandably worried and anxious for him.

However, after his very first session with Mr Durdan, he came away feeling inspired and enthusiastic – something I hadn’t seen in my son in a very long time. He was made to feel welcome straight away and I instantly felt relieved. Ultimately, my son achieved a grade 4 in his maths foundation paper which is exactly what he needed for his college course – happy days!

Thank you, HD Tuition, for the support, patience, and encouragement you showed my son.

I was very concerned with my daughter’s ability in maths with her upcoming GCSE’s. I was also worried that she would fail which creates issues for college as students would have had to re-take maths!

However, with Mr Durdan’s friendly and helpful attitude, my daughter found working with him very easy and her maths quickly improved.

Mr Durdan has sufficient time for his students and their parents, a great set up for tutoring and I would highly recommend him to any parents that have struggling students who wish to achieve a higher grade than anticipated.

Initially private tuition was sort due to a massive knock in confidence and lack of belief in own ability.

Henry is punctual, professional & reliable.With his likeable personality & relaxed manner, he has a brilliant rapport with his students.

The transformation in my daughters attitude towards learning has changed beyond recognition.

She has now benefited from a massive boost in confidence which the tuition has delivered, altered her whole outlook and helped create a really positive attitude towards Maths!

Mr Durdan’s positive impact on my son’s learning has been tremendous. After increasing struggles with Maths in school, Josh has now achieved great results with HD Tuition over the past months.

Like many children, Josh can’t easily access his school curriculum because he finds it hard to focus and process information in a busy classroom. But working with Mr Durdan, Josh’s subject knowledge and confidence have really grown and we’re approaching Year 9 far more optimistically.These sessions have allowed Josh to properly grasp key concepts and topics that were passing him by in the bustle of school. Tutoring with Mr Durdan gives Josh a calm space in which to learn, with a patient and supportive teacher who can focus on his needs. Mr Durdan also has the gift of being able to break down the most complicated topic into something completely manageable. Josh is now building really strong Maths skills, many of which will help in other subjects too and further improve his confidence.

As well as being tutored recently by Mr Durdan, Josh was taught by him in school a few years ago so I’ve got wider experience of Mr Durdan’s work. He is definitely a born teacher. He has the knack of being able to fully engage his students in their studies, relate to them, keep things enjoyable but all the while project a quiet strength that gives a clear sense of discipline. You can also see that he really enjoys what he does, he absolutely wants the best for his students, and he brings all this to tutoring. He’s able to engage so well with Josh that something as potentially dreary to a teenager as a session of Maths tutoring becomes something positive. I have honestly never seen Josh concentrate and focus like he does with Mr Durdan.

I’m sure Mr Durdan’s decision to use “gadgets” for his tutoring also makes a massive impact on his students. No paper, no pens, no exercise books, no handouts – just an iPad and an Apple Pencil. Sessions feel modern and fresh, very different to school, and I’m sure this adds to the positive atmosphere. We always have access electronically to Josh’s work too, so we can refer to it in the future.

Working with Mr Durdan has been very positive for us as a family. He’s professional and personable, he works wonderfully well with Josh and we’re seeing real, measurable progress in a key subject that will benefit other lessons too. I highly recommend Mr Durdan as a tutor, and knowing Josh has access to such excellent support has given us all real confidence as GCSEs approach!
