The centre is very nice, helpful and non-judgemental place for advice. They have always been very happy to help me.

I attended a maths help meeting so that I could answer questions from a tutorial. After attending, I felt much more confident about answering the tutorial questions.

The tutor helped me understand the concepts very well, and very easily explained how to start and go about writing an essay with simple examples.
