Here are just a few of the comments from my students, school administrators and students’ parents:
“Stuart launched the Fencing Club last year and in this time it has become the most popular after school activity…He actively looks at ways of raising the profile of the sport by arranging competitions and grading, and encourages the parents to come along to watch a lesson at the end of term. SSC are professional, punctual and reliable and have a great manner with the pupils…I can’t recommend him highly enough”
– Tracy Glass – Business Manager St. Edward’s Prepatory School, Reading
“I love being coached by Stuart – he makes all the lessons fun and exciting. He’s very inventive in the way he coaches us and so makes every Tuesday evening a real treat and something to look forward to!”
– Adam Richmond-Coggan – Student
“Stuart provides engaging and informative fencing lessons. My son has progressed significantly over the past two years under Stuart’s teaching, becoming a good, technical épée fencer. Stuart’s patient, friendly and knowledgeable manner encourages his pupils to learn and develop at their own pace.”
– Aaron Thornton, Parent
“Stuart has been teaching my son the theory and practice of fencing for the last 18 months.
Stuart is a talented teacher, he excels with a natural ability to form positive learning relationships with youngsters. He has the secondary skill of being able to encourage and enthuse them with his passion for the sport. At all times he remains respectful, calm, focused and extraordinarily patient. It is his determination to bring out the best in them that children identify with, and this also enables them to develop the crucial fencing blend of both character and technique.
I strongly recommend Stuart’s teaching abilities to other parents and carers”
– John Diamond, Parent
