I worked with Darrell Oakden as a teaching assistant in year 5, so I have first-hand knowledge of his excellent and successful teaching practices. His gentle, calm and patient manner; his depth of subject knowledge and his ability to successfully explain detailed concepts to children he teaches helps them to reach the high standards that he sets. Darrell consistently maintains an inspiring and creative learning environment for his pupils so I was extremely happy and confident that when my son joined his class he would thrive and achieve his best. My son had an amazingly happy and stimulating year with Darrell and he also exceeded his targets and goals. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Darrell as a personal tutor.

I have worked alongside Mr Oakden as his TA for several years. I found him to be patient, determined and an extremely approachable member of staff for both adults and children of all ages. His ability to grab and retain children’s attention is excellent and he makes each lesson both fun and stimulating. He helps every individual child, no matter their ability, to reach their potential and enjoy doing so. He will be sorely missed by both staff and pupils. I wish him all the best and know he will make an excellent private tutor.

Mr Oakden taught my daughter in year 5 at primary school. He was a brilliant teacher. Sophie really enjoyed his lessons especially art and maths. I feel that I was listened to as a parent and I was very pleased with the progress she made.

My Girls have great memories of you as their teacher and sing your praises. We wish you every success with Achieve Tuition, may you continue to be a guiding light.

We feel Lily has improved so much during her time in Mr Oakden’s class. Lily has become more confident with her reading and writing and has started to draw on future learning and theory, applying this to practice.

What can I say other than WOW! I a super impressed with how Maizie has done this year. Thank you Mr Oakden

Mrs Milward, Congleton


When I learned that Mr Oakden was leaving teaching to become a private tutor I was really disappointed that my daughter would not get the opportunity to be in his class. Mr Oakden taught my son Kyle a couple of years ago and I admired his dedication and approach to teaching. I wish wish him well and any child tutored under him will be very lucky indeed
