"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!"
“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.”
"Our daughter's confidence in maths was shattered by some very poor teaching when she was 10 years old and she struggled in the subject until we found Peter Halfpenny. Now that she is 15, having benefited from Peter's tuition for two years, we are beginning to see her return to her true ability in the subject. Her recovery has been possible because of Peter's calm and positive manner and his patient attention to effective approaches to problem solving that are built on principles that he secures with his pupils early on. Peter has helped our daughter rediscover her self-belief in maths and helped her to approach it in a methodical and productive manner. We are absolutely delighted. We couldn't recommend Peter too strongly to anyone looking for some support if their children are struggling with mathematics."
"Peter has been an enormous help to our daughter who was feeling overwhelmed by science GCSE in which she needed to be successful. Peter has a kind, quiet and very patient approach. His ability to clarify content whilst assisting a learning process, and to increase the student’s subject confidence is invaluable. Our daughter was enabled to not just pass, but to achieve far higher grades than she ever anticipated. She is delighted, and so are we. Thank you!"
Peter has tutored my daughter towards her A Level in maths for 12 months. Peter is professional, communicates efficiently, is very knowledgeable and reliable. My daughter found his support and expertise invaluable and he developed her from a grade D to a B.
I would recommend Peter for maths and chemistry tuition at A level.
