"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!)."
“We approached Peter when our daughter was having difficulty understanding some mathematical concepts in her preparation for GCSE and had been put down a set at school which affected her confidence in the subject. There is no doubt that Peter’s calm and sympathetic approach coupled with his ability to break down and explain points clearly at an appropriate level, helped our daughter to secure an A grade in her Maths GCSE exam and restore her confidence in the subject. We would have no hesitation in recommending Peter if you are looking for a tutor to inspire and raise your child’s confidence in the subject.”
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.
"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"
"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.
