Having completed all of his ACCA exams between 2007 and 2009, he achieved remarkable results himself, receiving worldwide placings in several ACCA papers.


'I enrolled for Terry's P1 class in December 2017 and what I received was world class tuition & support from a brilliant lecturer.

Right from the word go the end goal was always on exam day and this was obvious with the materials supplied and the exam focussed homework set on a weekly basis.

One of the thinks I liked about Terry is the constructive feedback received from him which was always designed to get you back on track. I definitely feel in terms of exam structure & approach that these key skills were developed & enhanced following attending Terry's classes.

I would strongly recommend to any ACCA student to consider Terry as a lecturer. The exam pass rates achieved are testament to the dedication and commitment shown by Terry towards his students.'  - Barry McPadden
