« I met Mr. Farrell in an international school in Madrid. The happiest time for me every day is to attend his Maths lessons. He always inspired me in different ways and his intelligence makes me admire him. He is extremely experienced in teaching and his knowledge covers a very wide range. He used to give me ideas about UKMT questions, furthermore, he has made my experience with him very enjoyable and I have learnt A LOT from Mr Farrell. »

I am a former philosophy student of Roberts. I called on Robert to tutor a student of mine in mathematics. We organised the sessions over Skype. Robert’s friendly, patient, and expert pedagogy returned immediate impressive results. My student was over the moon! Excellent value. Highly recommended.
