See What Others Have to Say…

Dear Jonathan

When my son moved up a maths set and started to struggle I asked Jonathan at Abacus Tutors for help. Jonathan listened to what the issues were and then got to work. His methodical teaching and encouragement has enabled my son to regain his confidence, understand his school work more comprehensively, and have fun learning! Abacus offer a great tailor-made service that works, and one I am confident to recommend.

Many Thanks, Maureen

Dear Jonathan

Thanks for all the help and advice on technique.   I have just returned from holiday to find that I obtained an A* in my Statistics.

Kind Regards, Tim

Dear Mr Cledwyn-Davies,

We just wanted to e-mail you to let you know that both of us managed to get into our top choice Universities ( M to Sheffield and J to Durham ). We both got grade A in Mathematics and 3 A’s overall so we were both ecstatic!

Thank you so much, we couldn’t have done it without your help!

Best Wishes, J and M

Dear Jonathan

We would like to take this opportunity to put on record our appreciation for the tutoring our daughter has received over the past 6 years.   Mary commenced her mathematics tutoring in 2007 when 8 years old as she struggled with the subject at primary school. Our objectives at the time were to improve her capability and confidence with the subject and thus provide her with the platform to succeed at secondary school.   Mathematics has always been her weaker subject and your work with her has contributed significantly to her progression at school.   The value we place in your work is obvious given the time you have tutored Mary however we’d also like to commend you on your style as this has been just as important with a student who has not always shown a natural inclination to work hard!   You have always provided Mary with trust, confidence and a level of directional support that she has needed to focus on learning new and challenging tasks.

We would recommend your services to any parent without hesitation.   You provide an exceptional level of professionalism within your subject and tutor in a way that connects to the child. The results have been excellent.

Yours, Matt & Yulia

Dear Mr Cledwyn-Davies,

Sam enjoyed his sessions with you and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help.

Kind Regards, Ann


Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for all the support you have given both our children over several years. With your help Susan got the A she needed in GCSE Maths, and her understanding of both Maths and Physics, which she is studying at A-level, continues to improve.

William had very little confidence in maths when he first came to you, but thanks to you he did well in KS2 at primary school and since going to secondary school has climbed two sets.

Dear Jonathan

My daughter struggled with Maths throughout her schooling, we were recommended by a friend to Jonathan in Year 8. Jonathan tailored her tuition to really focus on the elements of the syllabus that Emily struggled with, even liaising with her Mathematics-teacher. She would never have achieved the GCSE results that she got if it wasn’t for Jonathon’s tutoring.   He was so patient going over things multiple times when needed.

Undertaking tuition is a huge financial commitment, but has been worth every penny for Emily.



Dear Abacus Tutors,

Thank you very much for the great help you have given me over the course of my A-levels. I would not have been able to achieve what I have without your help.

Regards, Peter

Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for all your help with Mathematics, especially with the Statistics. We will let you know how things go in August and what universities we end up at.

We wish you the best for the future,   P and D

Hi, Jonathan

Mark was here the other day and confirmed he got an A in Mathematics and a B in Further Mathematics. Will let you know what Hugh ends up with.

Dear Abacus

Thank you for all the support that you have given Alex over the last few months. He has come on leaps and bounds since Christmas and this week should be attending all his classes in school.

Many thanks, Lisa

Dear Jonathan

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all your efforts as Richard does appear to have grown in confidence with his number work but continues to struggle with word based mathematics problems (something his literacy tutor will help with). As Richard is moving to secondary school in September, we may well need to call on your help again.

Kind regards, Jane, Peter and Richard

Hi Jonathan,

We just wanted to let you know that Mary passed the entrance exam to Hawley, and was awarded an academic bursary, so thanks for all your help with the papers.

Best wishes, Pauline

Hi Abacus Tutors,

John got an A and Paul just missed an A in the Physics module in January. Both are agreed that the extra tuition made a difference.

Hi Abacus Tutors,

Just to let you know that John got an A grade for his Physics AS so he’s delighted with that. Not sure about Paul yet as he’s away on holiday at the moment. I suspect the tutorials made the difference so thanks for that. John has decided to take Physics at A Level next term so we will be seeing you again.

Cheers, Isabel x

Dear Jonathan,

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all the help and support you have given Emma this year. It has been great for her and we know that she has enjoyed very much the lessons with you.

Best regards, Eybi

Dear Jon,

Just to let you know that I did get in to Reading Bluecoat School – your tutoring really helped me.

Thank you. Paul

Dear Mr Cledwyn-Davies,

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how pleased we continue to be with George’s tutoring after another set of excellent results. He got A’s for excellent effort at all times for both Maths and English ( amongst others ). We feel that the tutoring is working really well.

Kind regards, Christine

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Dear Mr Cledwyn-Davies,

Just to say, we will be back next week, 79% in the C3 mock was really encouraging.

Kind regards, Amanda

Dear Mr Cledwyn-Davies,

Good news, Rachel got a good grade in her Maths and has so secured her place at college.

Kind regards, Liz


Dear Mr Cledwyn-Davies,

I wanted to update you on a conversation I had with George’s headmistress.

We have noticed a marked improvement and am convinced that the tutoring provided has played a very important part in George’s development.   Certainly, his Mathematics teacher has commented upon how much his maths has improved.

We are therefore very keen to keep up the weekly tutoring and would like to thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards, Christine

Many thanks for the tutoring, we were all very pleased as our son obtained an A* in Mathematics and is off to Welbeck College to study for his A-levels.   We will be happy to recommend you to others. Thanks again.

Dear Jonathan,

Many thanks for getting me through my GCSE Statistics ( last year )and GCSE Mathematics this year. I have just heard that it was a grade B and I am thrilled.

Kind regards, Charlotte

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Hi Jonathan,

My son says he’s much more confident with his Further Maths now, many of his concerns have now been resolved. Therefore he no longer needs any further tuition.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help and guidance.

All the best, Ling

Hi Jonathan,

Thought you would like to know, Oliver achieved an A in GCSE Physics.  Your sessions definitely helped.

Matthew has chosen to take A Level Physics and would like to continue your sessions from the start.  We will contact you once we know his time table in early September.

Regards, Helen & Paul


My son has been having lessons with Marjorie since Dec 2009 and she has been fantastic. His maths has improved beyond our expectations and he has recently achieved a B in his first GCSE module.

I wanted to say how brilliant Marjorie has been for Adam.

Many thanks


Hello there, Jonathan, It is Suzanne. I said I would give you a call and let you know how the girls got on with their application for Marist. I am glad to say they have both been accepted and they start in September, so thank you for all your tuition and your help. Thank you. Bye.
