"I wanted to send you an email thanking you for your time teaching us computing as I did not have time to thank you in person.
Your passion for the subject was unmatched as far as I’m concerned and that really was apparent.
It has really stuck with me and I don’t think I’ll forget a lot of the larger scale lessons you taught. .”
— AW, A Level Computing, 2016
“I just wanted to say thank you for teaching me for the first half of the year!
You were a great teacher and I really appreciate that you taught me. I wish you the best!
Thank you so much! .”

“I would like to mention that I will always consider you as an influential person in my life. If you hadn't taught me I doubt I would be in the situation I am in today, nor have a clue with what I want to do with my life so I can only thank you for that.”
— JK, BTEC IT, 2014
“One of the best teachers that I have ever had especially due to his real practical knowledge of the subject as well as having the ability to explain complicated concepts in a simple and easy to understand way. Without these qualities and his help and support I do not think I would be at university today.”
— GH,A Level Computing, 2017
“Intriguing, interesting, straight to the point - can't think of a better combination for a teacher to have!”
— PG, A Level Computing, 2017
"I was also inspired by you to take a teaching module in my third year so now have a headstart in getting a PGCE if I ever want to teach in the future.
Thanks for being a great teacher and role model."

"Dr Meaney was incredibly dedicated and reassuring, explaining things very clearly. Always very driven and gave great advice on how to improve coding! Really helpful for my A-level that I got an A!
Definitely would recommend, I preferred him over my actual teachers at college!"
— JS, A Level Computing, 2020
"I was fortunate enough to have been your student back in 2015-2016 in Computer Science.
I just want to say thank you for being a honest, intelligent and all-round amazing teacher, and am honoured to have been your student. You've actually inspired me to take up web development as my vocation

“Mrs Hatfield phoned and apologised because she hasn’t been phoning in when Rory has been absent.
During the course of the conversation she said that she thinks you are an amazing teacher and have been able to get more out of her son that anyone else! ”

"***** has gone from being an AS failure to a B-Tec success story and has grown to finally believe in himself - and I am sure that this is largely down to the guidance he has received from yourself."

"Having the support on campus with someone directly connected to the teaching faculty is excellent and has resulted in the support being very relevant. The feedback directly to me on his progress has also given me a clearer picture of where ******** is at."
- SS, BTEC Level 3 IT Parent, 2018
"The one-to-one tutoring support you have provided has made a great deal of difference to her progress in her ICT course.
You managed to get her to level 2 with two merits in a matter of 2 month.
You were very very patient with her and she responded very well to your technique and perseverance.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needs help for their child"
- NE, BTEC Level 2 IT Parent, 2018
"***** has cited Dr Meaney's ability to relate often complex theory to real life scenarios and his patience in explaining work in a variety of ways, where required, assisting with both her understanding and retention of information.
***** describes Dr Meaney as professional, knowledgeable and generous with his time and rates him as an outstanding tutor."
- CS, A Level Computer Science Parent, 2018
"I can say without hesitation that ***** has benefited immensely from his sessions with you. He would not have achieved his grade in his end of term exam, had it not been for his sessions with you."
- CK, A Level Computer Science Parent, 2018
"I just wanted to say thank you. ***** has come home buzzing about the work today and it was so fabulous to see. He really enjoyed it and sang your praises. He says he has learnt so much new stuff and feels much more confident about next week now."

" **** has really enjoyed working with you and the whole experience has definitely boosted his confidence. So much more than I thought my son would get out of this. "
- FP, A Level Computer Science Parent 2019
"Hi Mr Meaney, just to let you know that Jake got a ‘B’ in computing. I am over the moon. From where he was when you stepped in to rescue him from failing completely, I think it’s brilliant. Your methods of teaching and dedicated follow-up e-mails after every lesson Jake had, actually got a great result. Kind Regards and many thanks again"
-FP -A Level Computer Science Parent, 2019
"Dr Meaney applies a combination of practical expert support, and a straightforward communication style which worked perfectly to overcome hurdles and re-build confidence.
Additionally, the feedback to the parent on each session helps to gain an insight into the lessons in a way that you may not get directly from your son or daughter but in a careful and supportive way.
