“I contacted Mr Philip Tonner for philosophy tuition after I received a conditional offer for university that required me to get an A in higher philosophy. Mr Tonner was extremely helpful as not only did I achieve a high A in the exam but I greatly improved my abilities in the subject as a whole. He provided me with a wealth of facilities for studying including notes and books. He also examined written work with care and gave in depth feedback, elevating the quality of my writing to a much higher standard. I would recommend his tuition services without reservation”. Successful entrant to the University of Oxford 2016.
