My son thoroughly enjoyed being tutored by Peter as he was professional, calm and encouraging with expert knowledge of the curriculum and gave valuable advice on exam technique whilst using methods of consolidating the learning with index cards etc. between sessions. Also he was committed to getting the maximum out of each session. I would definitely recommend Peter to anyone looking for a tutor.
"I am so happy!" These are words I didn't ever think I'd hear from my son when he received his maths GCSE result, but I did. Working for a year with Peter was fundamental to this outcome. My son struggled with maths, in part due to dyslexia, but Peter helped my son recognise what he did know before helping him to fill in the gaps. All this he did in a hugely supportive, reassuring and motivating manner, ensuring his student believed in himself at all times. I highly recommend Peter.
"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."
"Please do not think twice about seeking help from Pete for any student who needs that extra support on the maths or science front. With one of our teenagers with a complete lack of belief in his ability in Maths and predicted to fail to attain that all important C grade, and another with a passion for Science but a lack of progress in school with the maths skills to support her, we turned to Pete for support and guidance. His amazingly patient and gentle approach empowered and equipped both to achieve what they had come to believe was beyond them on the GCSE front! More importantly, what better recommendation can there be than a student who absolutely relished her tutorial time and has taken her skills, together with the strategies she developed, forward into the further study of science."
"We have no hesitation in recommending Peter as a Maths tutor. Our son was struggling to understand, let alone like, the subject, and asked us for private tuition. He never looked back – with Peter’s calm and quiet manner, showing him how to use formulas to tackle problems, he started to enjoy and look forward to the 1- 2- 1 sessions, even being disappointed when I cancelled one because I thought he might like a rest in the middle of exams. During revision time he was even confident enough to help fellow pupils - a total transformation from confusion and frustration.
At the beginning of Year 11 his level at Maths was ‘C3’ and his target grade ‘B’. The mock GCSE results were slightly better at ‘C2’. In August he passed all 3 Maths papers at ‘A’ grade, a resounding success, due to our son’s hard work and Peter’s excellent help. Best of all, our son is now really enjoying doing it well, and is going on to study Maths at A level, something we had never imagined he would want to do. We are delighted for him. Thank you Peter, it wouldn’t have happened without you, worth every penny (sorry, unintended pun!)."
