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.
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.
"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 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.
"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!"
