Dear Mr Brodie,

I have been meaning to email you for weeks, but never seem to be at a computer when I think of it! I’m sorry to have been so remiss in letting you know that Alice passed her Maths GCSE with a C in the summer. I think the help that you and your colleagues gave her in those few lessons she came to you for was absolutely invaluable and both she and I are very grateful for the clear, concise and patient guidance you provided.

Many thanks indeed.

All the best,

Just to let you know that Tommy did well in his entrance exams and has been offered academic scholarships from both Wellington and Kings College.

I am sure your sessions helped him to focus and build his confidence.
