“Hello Doc, I just wanted to say thank you for helping me conquer my nerves with my Nat5 (especially maths); I got a Grade A in maths (better than what I was predicted or hoped for). You made a world of difference in boosting my confidence and only wish that we had got in touch earlier.”

“It was a privilege for me to receive extra help from you Doc. Along with your positive engaging personality and extensive background in Maths & Further Maths, you really made a difference in my learning and understanding. Doc, you have inspired me to explore my abilities and stretch myself - you are the reason why I got into UCL! Thank you!”

“Dr Ghouse: Thank you very much for all your efforts with Karim and Ayla. We, of course, will recommend you to peers, friends, and family.”

"For me, Dr Ghouse was not just my tutor, he was also my mentor. I would never have been able to get a Level 8 (I was predicted a Level 5 by my school) in Maths without his dedicated guidance."

"Hello Doc: You really have 'over-prepared' my daughter Mary. From working at a grade 4-5 at the end of Year 10, she is now comfortably sitting on a Grade 9. I have already started recommending you."
