Our daughter had always struggled with Maths, which became ever more challenging as she progressed through senior school. As the concepts became more complex our daughter found herself in the bottom set at the start of S3 - with very low confidence and little faith in her Maths abilities. Muthu has a very calm coaching style which really helped our daughter regain her confidence. We are so pleased we found Muthu as he turned-around her grades - to the point where she achieved an A in this year’s Nat 5’s. We cannot praise Muthu more highly and would recommend him to anyone looking to improved their grades - thank you Muthu!

We went looking for a tutor to help my son's confidence. A tutor we tried said she couldn't help, another threw his arms up in despair at what Callum couldn't do. Then along came Muthu. Callum's confidence soared and he went to the exams knowing he could do his best. He got an A at Higher thanks to Muthu's calm, patient help. Muthu is worth every penny.

A at Higher Maths. Muthu helped our son turn around a 28% prelim.
Muthu methodically walked through the higher maths course spotting and correct the problems. Was less than weekly and only started in Feb. Muthu can't do the work for the student. William had the bit between his teeth and worked hard but it was Muthu's intuitive support that made his efforts productive.

Absolutely delighted with Muthu in how he helped Lewis achieve A in both Maths and Physics. Lewis was overwhelmed from National 5 to Higher. Having tried 2 previous tutors, Lewis asked me to bring out the big guns, and that was Muthu. In a short space of time, Lewis' confidence was restored, he no longer felt burdened but was full of optimism. This was evident throughout each class test coming out each time with an A. A tip: get your child to do full revision, noting everything that should be covered with Muthu. All in all, can't recommend enough, well worth investing in your kids.

Muthu, Thank you for being such a fine tutor for my daughters. We are delighted for the recent National 5 exam results of achieving A in both Maths and Physics. Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job of making those two subjects look so easy and interesting for my children. You were exceptionally good of explaining difficult maths and science concepts which really helped my girls to do well. Definitely one of the very best tutors we have known.

Muthu has been absolutely invaluable in helping our daughter to achieve grade A in both Higher Maths and Physics. He helped her to identify her weaker areas and worked on these. Muthu has a quiet, gentle way with kids which raises their belief in themselves and actually makes them enjoy the subjects. My daughter looked forward to his lessons - they were never a chore to endure. He makes Maths and Physics seem easier! This time last year we searched for a tutor, found this website and haven't looked back. Muthu is worth every penny. We would 100 % recommend him for kids at all levels.

Our son was a rock bottom last October and had become very disillusioned with Physics Higher, in fact he wanted to drop the subject. I called Muthu and he felt he could help. After the first session our son gave us the thumbs up. It was such a relief. By February, he passed his prelim which was such good news considering where he had come from. When he got his results he missed out on an A by less than a 1%! Such a shame he didn't get the A but an amazing achievement nevertheless. I would highly recommend Muthu and we have now invited him back to tutor our younger son through his Nat 5 maths.

Muthu has been the most fantastic help to all my children but especially to my daughter who had been struggling with IB(International Baccalaureate) maths and physics. Muthu patiently helped her and gave her great confidence in her abilities. He also worked on her exam technique, going over past papers. My daughter is convinced she only achieved top marks of IB 7 for both physics and maths due to Muthu's input. In addition he has gladly stepped in with my 2 younger children when they have hit a wall in some areas of maths and physics. My children all think he is great. I would happily recommend him to other parents.

Muthu's methodical and kindly tutoring was invaluable in helping our seemingly 'non-mathematical' and 'non-homework-orientated' daughter achieve an A in Maths GCSE this year.

Muthu tutored my son in higher Maths after a C in his 5th Year results. The university condition for his chosen course was a B in 6th Year. Muthu was calm and patient and helped my son gain confidence, particularly in his exam technique which was a great problem for him. Muthu has now instilled a love of maths in my son, who prior to his maths exam said he was looking forward to it. He went on to achieve an A grade. My son is now studying an engineering based degree at his first choice university and is more than coping with the maths component at degree level, which is all credit to Muthu's tutoring. I would not hesitate to recommend Muthu as a tutor; he was professional and reliable at all sessions.

I first saw Muthu after having failed the unit 1 NAB for advanced higher physics. When the exam came round I achieved a B. This was way above predictions and meant that I achieved my conditions to study at Edinburgh. Thank you Muthu.

Having done well at National 5 level, our son was struggling to keep up with the speed of Higher math and physics teaching and was starting to fall behind in the subjects he loved. From scraping a C in his Prelims he and Muthu worked together to improve his confidence and he got A's in both final exams (with an A1 in maths). Our son always looked forward to Muthu's visits, responded really well to his quiet approach and never minded the extra homework! We can't thank you enough Muthu.

Two years in a row, Muthu was able to help me get A's in Maths (Higher and Advanced Higher). His many years experience in teaching the course shows, as he is able to give very particular exam technique advice for almost every type of question allowing me to pick up marks in the most effective way. I fully recommend Muthu.

14th of August 2015 by Andrew Burns
Muthu helped our son to convert a failed prelim for Maths Higher, into a B-Grade at final exam, all achieved with a few months of support. Our son was delighted with the final grade he achieved. And we've absolutely no doubt that Muthu's careful and patient tutoring helped our son enormously; and can't thank Muthu enough for the help, encouragement and practical assistance he was able to impart very quickly and effectively.

Muthu took my daughter from a 'fail' in the prelim for National 5 Maths to a 'B'. He was very good at explaining things and spent time on past papers. My daughter felt able to ask him anything and generally found the time spent with him invaluable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who's serious about their studies.

Due to a serious illness my son had not been taught several topics in Higher Physics course. We managed to find Muthu who despite being incredibly busy managed to slot my son in. Muthu taught him the 'missing' topics in a few sessions and went over some questions on these topics. Result is that he got an 'A' for the higher and he is delighted.

21st of August 2012 by Fiona Moore
Muthu tutored my 17 year old for Higher Maths after a disappointing prelim result. He is a patient and reliable tutor who clearly knows his subject, and my son was delighted to gain an A grade which would not have happened but for Muthu's guidance. We would highly recommend him.

I got in touch with Muthu after my son's prelim results at AH maths was a D. Within a couple
