"In 2007 my eldest daughter was falling badly behind at school in Maths, something we only found out about after she did her Mock GCSE exam. We knew we needed to act quickly if she was to achieve any kind of a grade. I had heard Peter's name come up in conversation with many other parents I knew and decided I needed to contact him quickly to set up some lessons. Within 6 months she sat the exam and passed with a good grade. It then became obvious in 2010 that my second daughter was also struggling with the teaching she was receiving at school and she had little confidence at that time, therefore, without hesitation, I contacted Peter again and he agreed to take on another member of our family! When the GCSE 2011 results were announced we were once again delighted that another good grade had been obtained. Not only that but her confidence has come on leaps and bounds. Peter instilled in her that she could do it, she just had to believe in herself.
Peter is calm, understanding, extremely patient, enthusiastic about all his subjects and totally committed to his pupils and wants them to truly succeed. I would have no hesitation in recommending him"
We would not hesitate to recommend Peter to anyone looking for a Maths tutor. Our son enjoyed Maths but before his GCSE asked for a tutor, as he thought he would benefit from extra help to enable him to reach his full potential. We found Peter and with his help our son achieved a Grade A. He carried on to A level and with Peter's patience, support and clear explanations he achieved his required grade.
"I was so lucky, as a mature student having to pass GCSE Mathematics, to have found Peter. Thanks to his knowledge of the subject, his teaching skills, and above all patience and calmness, I passed. Maths has always been a difficult subject for me, but Peter always put me at ease about asking him to explain something over and over again.
When my daughter was having problems keeping up in maths at secondary school, did not understand the explanations given in class, and was rapidly losing confidence and self-esteem, I called on Peter. Thanks to him she gained an A* in statistics in year nine and a grade A in her GCSE Mathematics this year. She was also able to ask Peter for help with Chemistry and Physics when needed and this was an immense help in her achieving an A grade in Additional Science.
Peter is a highly professional and conscientious tutor. I would never have passed GCSE Mathematics without his tuition and I am immensely grateful to Peter for helping my daughter realise her full potential and restoring her confidence. Therefore, I have no hesitation in highly recommending Peter for private tuition."
Peter is simply an outstanding teacher! Some teachers leave an unforgettable mark on their students and Peter is definitely one of these for us. My daughter, having moved schools many times, was struggling with Maths and Chemistry, so I took her out of school a few months before GCSE's to be taught by Peter - and he really changed her whole attitude towards those subjects. His patient and interesting explanations have inspired her with new confidence and interest, so much so that now she plans to take Chemistry A-level. I can't recommend Peter more highly.
"When our son was in his second year he lacked confidence in maths and knew that he wasn’t achieving his full potential. He was so concerned, and unhappy, that he asked us if he could have extra help. Luckily we found Peter and started individual tuition to initially get him through this difficult patch. Peter’s patient and calm manner put our son at ease and the one-to-one teaching meant that he was able to ask questions freely, sorting out any problems and misunderstandings that he had. Peter was also able to help with physics and chemistry as well – an added bonus and our son’s increased understanding and confidence in maths also meant that he got the most from his classroom lessons. Our son enjoyed and benefited so much from Peter’s lessons that he wanted to continue! This he did and with his examinations at GCSE and A level he achieved A*s in all his maths and science subjects. We therefore have no hesitation in highly recommending Peter for private tuition."
