I had the pleasure to work with Tony while prepping for my MCA OOW 3000. We had 7 sessions in total over 7 weeks. Tony laid out everything in plain and understandable language, providing his own experience as examples. He teaches you to understand not to remember, which makes you more flexible more adaptable. He told me he wants me to enjoy the exam and I did, it went smooth and quick. Will be coming back for the next one 150%. Thank you Sir, we still have to have a pint in that oldest bar in England. Warm regards. Cheers.

I saw Tony for some sessions while studying for my Master 3000 Oral prep and found his sessions extremely beneficial in preparing for my exam. I highly recommend Tony for anyone studying for their Orals if they are in Palma. He also offers Skype sessions which we did a couple of times. Tony is very thorough and gives you very good feedback and direction in all topics of the Syllabus. My sessions with Tony along with the other tutors I saw in Southampton were a critical factor in gaining the result I hoped for.

In April I had 4 hours one to one with Tony regarding GSK OOW 3000gt to help me get completely on top of what I had to know and how to answer certain exam questions. He also help me on Stability as I was struggling to put down on to paper what I wanted to explain in a way how the examiner wanted it.
With his help I passed the exam, Great teacher highly recommend.

Completed 2 days of Skype interviews and then 4 days of 3 hour intensives with Tony before my oral exam. Tony was great and gave me all the tools I needed to pass the exam. He is a good instructor who has such a wealth of knowledge behind him to share. All my tuition was 1 on 1 and he tailored the course to fit me giving me the best chance. Would recommend anyone who needs help to get through their oral exam to give Tony a call.

I joined Tony in Halifax to get my oral prep underway. After having done OOW GSK and OOW NAV AND RADAR with him, I thought Tony is an excellent teacher and we got along great.
The level of teaching is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before. The depth of knowledge and understanding Tony brings to the table is second to none. He teaches you to understand concepts and rules instead of just book learning. This worked great for me and also during my OOW Orals as I managed to pass in 40 minutes.
I would highly recommend Tony to anyone looking to do their oral prep course as he is extremely capable and his pass rate speaks for itself. I will definitely be back to do my masters prep with him!

I had Tony as a sit-in instructor for Nav/Radar a year ago at Bluewater. I reached out to him after failing my first oral exam. I did 6 days of prep with Tony right before I sat my oral and I was well-prepared. I not only fine tuned my ability to answer questions, I learned a lot that had been left out in prior prep’s I have taken. I would HIGHLY recommend taking a prep with him. Hes a stand up guy and tells it how it is. Also he helped me book my accommodation (Fleece inn/ food was great and perfect study environment.) It was a short walk to his home in which he offered to give me a ride but I used it each morning to practice my speaking. If you are at this stage looking for prep you know your stuff and Tony will help get it out of you!

Tony helped me prepare for my Oral exam in Dec 17. I met Tony during my Nav and Radar module and was impressed by his knowledge and teaching skills. A must for anybody that is serious about having a deep knowledge of above and beyond the syllabus. We did one to one sessions and couldn’t have been happier with the result. Will be definitely be coming back for my next ticket.

I had about eight 2 hour sessions with Tony during February and March 2015 in Palma and it was more than enough. I didn’t do any other prep week in addition to this except self study. The progress after every session was noticeable and the oral was really easy compared to the level Tony prepared me to. It wasn’t just to pass the exam, I really learnt a lot and gained a deep understanding of many subjects I was quite clueless about before, and in a short time really. Other than that, Tony is super nice and it’s very comfortable to work with him. I would definitely recommend him. Thanks Tony!

Having passed my 3000t masters Oral prior to summer season I have only just found the time to compliment Tony and his teachings now…… Tony and his teaching not to mention his un biased encouragement enabled me to focus on the task at hand and eradicate all the nonsensical rubbish that staring at books can do to you. Tony pin pointed specific areas that needed attention and helped me relax and enjoy the process a little more than I have previously. I rendered Tonys services for 4/5 sessions prior to a prep week at Liverpool and flew through my Oral. Tony shouldn’t be the only learning weapon you have but certainly was an important one in helping me get ready. Thank you kindly…… I advise even just one or two just to get your head in the game.
Thanks again….. Good Luck to all

Passed my Master 3000 oral first time, Tony was a great help in the preparation and the study aids was priceless. Tony put my mind at ease and led me in the correct direction for my studies. My exam was mostly on Certification, MLC and emergencies procedures which was well covered during my lessons with Tony. Money well spent in my eyes and should not be underestimated the amount of study needed for the examination.

I undertook a number of sessions with Tony in the lead up to sitting my Master of Yachts 3000 Oral exam. In conjunction with his website, I found the one on one Skype sessions vital in my success. I encourage and recommend anyone preparing for an oral exam to engage his services. Tony, once again many thanks and all the best for 2016

Used Tony for OOW oral prep in Palma dec 14 prior to attending a week prep course in the UK. His 2 hour power slots of which I did 2 were invaluable and for sure equaled or beat the “week” prep course hands down!! Thank you for for your help!!

I have just passed my 3000 Oral and can say it would not have been possible without Tony’s help. Over the years I have used a number of training providers and instructors and can safely say that Tony is at the top. His method of teaching and depth of knowledge is fantastic. As said by others in previous posts, not only did Tony get the information into my head to pass the exam but he has taken my depth of knowledge and baseline understanding of subjects to a much higher level.
This website is also an invaluable source of information, read and watch every single page on it!
I would recommend Tony to any and every yachtie coming up for orals.
Thank you again Tony.
