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.
"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."
"As a teacher and parent, I found it very reassuring to act upon a recommendation when seeking maths tuition for our daughter and we have been so grateful to Peter for all that he has done for Alice. She had spent year 10 successfully studying statistics instead of maths GCSE at school and although she had an A* in stats. was hoping to carry on maths at A level and recognised the gaps in her knowledge. Peter came to the rescue and worked calmly and quietly with her in year 11, building confidence levels and covering the syllabus so that she achieved the 2 A’s she needed in the 2 maths GCSE papers. More impressively, Peter was completely unphased one evening when, in the stressful build up to the summer exams, I cheekily asked whether he might give her some help in chemistry and physics. He is a very versatile and talented teacher! (To quote Alice, “I learned more in that hour with Peter, than I have all year at school!”) She gained A*s in the sciences too and is now taking A level maths and we are, of course, asking Peter to continue his tutoring!"
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.
"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!)."
