What MWs and experts are saying about WineTutor.tv

Without your videos I don’t think I would have passed. You provided so many amazing tips on how to handle the theory and practical that things just started to gel. You are on my short list of people, without whom passing the exam for me would have been impossible.
Billo Naravane MW

 

Congratulations to Tim for his Winetutor TV project.

It is extremely innovative, short and snappy and very helpful for students of the Master of Wine.

When, through a friend, I discovered Tim’s website, I immediately enjoyed watching the videos. A huge bravo for such superb videos!

Gerard Basset OBE, MS, MW, MBA

 

These videos will be watched by MW students the world over time and time again. They’re a great resource that helps make the program seem achievable by breaking this huge project down into simple pieces. The wine world has long needed videos like these.

Justin Knock MW

 

I wish had had WineTutor.tv when I was studying for my MW!

It’s packed full of useful insights into how to make your studies more effective.

These are delivered in brief, pithy films that are entertaining and memorable. I’ve been recommending the site to all my mentees and pretty much any other student who’ll listen.

Your videos are great!

Brilliant way to make self study more approachable, and the exam technique parts are essential viewing for anyone on the programme.

Will definitely be recommending to MW students!

Vicky Burt MW, London

 

WineTutor TV is a well presented, engaging, interesting and original way of making pertinent parts of the MW programme accessible and understandable for students and bringing the syllabus to life.

It’s a great resource both for the enthusiast and student but really for anyone interested in wine.

Samantha Capon MW

 

WineTV is a fun, visual way to understand the principles of some of the most complex questions posed in the Master of Wine Exam.

A fantastic resource to any MW student or indeed anyone interested in learning more about wine

Barry Dick MW

 

WineTutor.tv is very good and easy to understand.

I could imagine myself when I was a student happily watching them while studying.

It would have been helpful in finding the shortcuts to learning things

Madeline Strenwreth MW

 

Wine Tutor is a fantastic resource – I wish such a thing had been available when I was studying.

Well done to Tim and team for helping to demystify the process.

Rod Smith MW

 

Just luv winetutor.tv….short, snappy, incisive and informative, fun injections of wine knowledge…and, you don’t have to be a MW student to get your fix.

John Downes MW

 

I believe your work will help potential and current MW students to appreciate the depth and breadth of study required, whilst the short and concise format is what todays students need.

Philip Goodband MW

 

Wine Tutor TV. looks great and I enjoyed dipping into it. Your intro video is terribly well written and comes across really well. Good luck with it

WineTutor.tv should be a great help to students.

Jack Whitaker MW

 

Excellent tool for MW students to dip into on many aspects of the course – I will certainly forward the link to my mentees

Lynne Coyle MW

 

You are a natural performer, and a great teacher. Beautifully and imaginatively presented, crystal clear, very thorough, and utterly engaging. Huge congratulations to you and the team. I can imagine the thought and the effort behind it all. The Institute themselves should have been doing something like this years ago!

Michael Schuster

 

Nicely done, Tim. I like the concept and delivery a lot. Core issues, well handled.

Bob Betz MW

 

Winetutor.tv was a great help in passing the MW exams, in addition to a steady diet of practice tasting exams and theory essays, studying books and websites, interviewing viticulturists, winemakers and operations people, and hands-on experience across various facets of the industry. The MW process requires students to assimilate some very complex concepts, and your videos help to make some very important ones clear and understandable. I had many ah-hah moments watching them, and I constantly encourage all of the students in the California study group to watch them over and over. Thank you for this great study resource Tim!

Matt Deller MW

What the students are saying about WineTutor.tv

 

You have a natural teaching ability and genuine excitement for the subject, the combination of which is sadly rare. While I do believe it takes effort to look effortless, it is reassuring to witness someone cut through the crap and approach the essay answer process so deftly and lightly.
Rebecca Palmer, MW student, UK

 

Binge watching these amazing videos. Thank you for the amazing content! It has been a great help, with 2 months to go it is just the refocusing I needed.

Maggie Campbell

 

I think this is an amazing guideline for every MW student to better focus on what to learn and how to study.

Hard to believe it’s free!

Stefan Metzner, MW student, Germany

 

WineTutor.tv is a serious tool for MW students.

Tim is an inspired and very talented communicator which makes things easier to understand. A truly very approachable way of learning, very serious but also funny and enjoyable. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Absolutely great stuff.

Joao Pires MS

 

I absolutely love the content on Wine Tutor TV.

I am so appreciative of the approachable, engaging, and informative segments, and the insider tips for success.

Catherine Rabb, MW student, North Carolina, USA

 

Great work!  I am a stage 2 MW student and winetutor.tv video’s are essential for distilling only the relevant concepts and framing different exam techniques in a tidy 2-4min film.  

It allows me to save what would otherwise be time wasted in study experimentation. 

Daphne Feng, MW student, Los Angeles

 

Your videos are helping me to reinforce semminars I have attended in the past and also to develop my critical thinking.

It is very useful using the white board method, it is very intuitive and help me taking notes.

Fernando Mora, MW student, Spain

 

You’re videos are great! Very educational while being easy to follow.

I have been promoting them to my entire wine team (9 Sommeliers) here at Mandalay Bay and have had some great feedback from them. 

Harley Carberry, MW student, Las Vegas

 

I find this to be an outstanding resource. Last year I attended the MW information day in Sydney. 

I understand that the program of study is largely self-guided and this has made me somewhat reluctant to sign up. 

WineTutor.tv has given me confidence to change my position.

Michael Solomons, MW student, Sydney Australia

 

You have put so much effort in expressing your desire of seeing more Masters of Wine around the globe.

Your ‘down to earth way’ of communication is quite polite, your analogies and enlightening examples are quite colourful, not to mention that you make feel all students welcome from the word go.

I am a fan of your site and I look forward to keep learning more using Winetutor TV.

David Stevens-Castro, MW student, Australia

 

Not only are they helpful but they are a welcome break from the hard graft of “regular” study.

Nicholas Blampied-Lane

 

I am a Diploma holder who is currently applying to be an MW student. I just want to tell you how invaluable your wine tutor tv website is. Thanks so much for doing this. I didn’t realize til a few months ago that I could also register ( thought it was only for MW candidates) , great info. Once again, thank you
