"Excellent presenter. Pupils thoroughly Tony's visit to school. Parents stated afterwards that the visit was very interesting and enjoyed by all."

"Tony's presentation was superb and was thoroughly enjoyed by parents and children. He was very well prepared and imparted a tremendous amount of knowledge to the students."
"Tony was absolutely excellent. He was well prepared, he engaged both children & parents in his presentation and sent on resources after his visit which the teachers used to follow up on the learning from his visit. A thoroughly enjoyable and educational experience which added greatly to the success of our One Book One Community project."
"Tony had great resources that the children loved being able to touch. The class that went outside were fascinated by what they saw and they all loved the Youtube clip. It was suggested that perhaps a Powerpoint would be great for the visual learners and maybe have a little more classroom management. Tony explained his work clearly and had the children engrossed in the topic. Thanks tony!"
