“Excellent”

Matau

“Merlvine has the unique gift of being able to teach and he demonstrates his commitment and passion in his approach and methods. His knowledge of first year university maths is unquestionable. Due to the circumstances there was a limited time period, two weeks, in which to find a tutor who would not only have the ability to cover a full years work but have the ability to part knowledge. Merlvine was able to do this. Thank you Merlvine”

Colleen

“He has helped Emma to improve her marks by 20% on her last report. He is always accommodating to change lessons as we need him to, which really helps during Exam time. ”

“Chayton loves Merlvine and Maths! Merlvine just excites Chayton with the Maths lessons and inspires him to aim and achieve higher. Chayton has never had the Maths results that he is currently getting, and this is all thanks to Melvine and his passion to teach Maths! Thank you.”

Karey

“Jenhara is performing at consistently high levels in both Maths and Physics. In the second term, she took both individual awards for the highest marks in her grade, achieving 99.04% in Maths and over 96% for physics. A great tribute to Merlvine who assisted her to catch up on her work after she was ill in the first term and missed many weeks of school. ”
