"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.
"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."
"We found Peter to be a very calm, patient, understanding and reliable tutor. Instilling confidence, our daughter felt well prepared for her exam, and achieved the grade she required. We would recommend Peter as an excellent Tutor."
"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!"
