I am an experienced and qualified tutor, providing one to one tuition or small group tuition in my own home. I can provide references from local families. Last year, one of my students was one of three most improved students in his school in GCSE year. My approach is supportive and empathetic. However, I am well organised and aim to get to the root of any learning barriers and check learning regularly, to provide the best value for money. I expect my students to carry out a small amount of work between sessions to reinforce the learning but I do not overload them.
