What the pupils say
"Dear Dr Leon Bernstein B.Ed (Hons) MA PhD NPQH
I am writing this letter in the format and structure you have taught us to write formal letters. With the final lesson now over, I possess a great deal of bittersweet feelings. On one hand, I am grateful the GCSEs are coming to an end; however, I am truly saddened with the conclusion of our happy, energizing, adventurous (especially when we are sent to the ‘cornfield’), genuinely exciting times we all share together.
When I first began learning in ….., two and a half years ago, my academic future seemed bleak. I wasn’t quite sure I would achieve any GCSE – let alone English. As time went on, I never really felt a determination or yearning to progress – as I deemed it a hopeless fantasy. However, when I heard knowledge of an opportunity, a prospect of accomplishing something, I was well on board. At first, I was reluctant and pessimistic about being educated from abroad, but I gave it my best. I recall conversing with my mother with regards to how confident I felt I was in the English subject, and that I needed little or no help.
However, looking back at that first essay, I could not have been more wrong. It is hard to describe the extent you have enhanced my knowledge, skills, esteem and much, much more. English was so dull prior to our lessons, today, I see it through a completely different lens. You have opened this door which I did not know existed. Because you have equipped us with the skills and abilities needed to produce a good piece of literature, I now find it exciting and pleasurable to do so.
We began at the very foundation; I will admit that even this was a little new and challenging for me. Seeing what we have now achieved, makes me immensely grateful for your patience and willpower to teach us. You indeed brought out what I am capable of, a skill that would have gone completely unnoticed if not for you.
So, in conclusion, I hope I have elucidated the gratitude and how privileged I feel in getting to know you. In addition, I am truly appreciative that you have taken me under your wing. I must say, with complete earnestness, that I have never enjoyed a teacher’s personality and his lessons more than what I have experienced with you. It would be just incredible if I had a science teacher who could approach the subject with the same manner and attitude, in this, I feel you are truly unique. It is of no surprise you are recognised as an esteemed educator – justifiably.
It is my hope that we can stay in contact for the foreseeable future, and meet up in person where you could possibly sign my first book, who knows?

On Study Skills & Memory Techniques
'Thanks for the session today. Really found myself more confident and I find the (RTT) and feedback very productive. I can feel an improvement in the classroom in general, and I hope it continues that way.'
On Remote Teacher Training (RTT)
'We both thoroughly enjoyed our time in sessions with Dr. Bernstein. Not only was it extremely informative in learning techniques to help with studying, learning and the power of recall, it was also entertaining, easy to access from wherever we were and a great boost in self-esteem. Dr Bernstein is clear in his sessions, interactive, and portrays information in a way in which it is easy to learn. We look forward to applying these skills and knowledge which Dr Bernstein taught us to our professional lives, as well as our personal lives.'
