My name is Tim Deehan and I am a self-employed Private Tutor and Sports Coach. Recently, and especially with the new reforms of GCSEs, AS and A Levels more and more students and parents are turning towards private tuition in order to aid the learning process. Unfortunately at this period of time it is provide a level of uncertainty on how a certificate will  look like and how future employers will view the new grading system.

The grading system is an improvement for some students, is distinguishes between the very good student and the absolute exceptional student. It also helps employers distinguish between a ‘pass’ student and a ‘strong pass’ student. In this respect a student will be rewarded for their downfall for missing out on what was originally a B-grade.
