Testimonials II

James gave my son excellent advice and direction. I believe that many of his fears have been alleviated after his time with James. He certainly has a clearer picture of where he should be heading.

Parent, Charleville, Co. Cork.

James was absolutely fantastic with our son - advising him on the options available to him after his Junior Certificate. James was very honest and gave him crucial information for his subject selection for the Leaving Certificate. John my son was absolutely delighted when he came out from the meeting.
