"Gerard Navarro helped my oldest daughter, Thea, with her French GCSE and she excelled with his
competent guidance and encouragement. Therefore I was delighted when he also agreed to help my son, Julius, with his GCSE studies.
Thea had recognised that she needed help to master French and willingly accepted Gerard's tutoring. However, Julius was a reluctant learner and found French a challenge in the school classroom. He
was not immediately open to additional support as he simply considered the language to be impossible to learn. It took Gerard both patience and determination to build Julius' confidence and self
belief that he could establish a good understanding of the language. Their progress together was consistent. Julius sometimes struggled through and I can only commend Gerard's diligence and unfailing
calm repetition. Julius was predicted a C for his GCSE. He was aiming for a B but we appreciated this would be a significant challenge. Gerard never failed to encourage and
worked tirelessly to produce worksheets, practice texts and exercises to help exam technique. This summer, 2016, the hard work of both Tutor and pupil was rewarded with
an GCSE Grade A in French. It was a wonderful result and could never have been achieved without the tutelage of Gerard Navarro. Gerard is a kind, hardworking and wonderful
tutor and is already booked to help my third child as she approaches her GCSE years."
