Well prepared, high energy tutor seeking the best results

I am post-graduate educated and currently tutor full-time. I am passionate about my subjects and dedicated to seeing students do well. I have enjoyed over 5 years as a private tutor teaching students from 10+ to University level and plan on continuing for the foreseeable future.

I was privileged enough to be afforded a very good private education and originally decided to take on tutoring as an opportunity to share my knowledge with others and allow them to realise their full potential and all the other benefits of a good education.

I find tutoring a truly satisfying profession due to the profound improvements which can be brought about in a student’s academic attainment. It has also been great to build long lasting working relationships with students, students learn better from people they like and I can honestly say I have gotten along very well with all of my students. Many of my students feel comfortable enough to contact me for help outside of lesson time and also remain in contact once at university or even in the work place. I think this is definitely indicative of the positive atmosphere in my lessons and also the mutual respect which is built during them.

Five main factors have contributed to my success so far,

- I have high expectations of myself and my students, I believe every student can achieve the best grades with the right help

- I instil confidence and a “can do” attitude in students, regularly reminding them that nothing is “hard” if you have been shown how to do it properly

- I listen to students, this keeps lessons interactive and ensures I have constant updates on their thought process and current understanding

- I am relatively young so students feel comfortable engaging with me and enjoy learning from me

- I ensure continuous support for students, I make myself available for questions via phone or e-mail throughout the day to ensure the support does not end at the end of the lesson!


Career Highlights!

- Academic Year 2011 - 2012 I helped a student who was predicted a C grade at GCSE to achieve a coveted place at Eltham College after passing a difficult 16+ exam

- Academic year 2012 - 2013 I helped a student who scored a D grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 level after 8 months of tuition. He was the only student to score an A grade in his school since 2007.

- Academic Year 2013 - 2014 I helped a student who scored a C grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 Economics with an impressive 97% in Unit 1, 99% in Unit 2 and 100% in Unit 3. He had also had three previous tutors who he was dissatisfied with before coming to me.

- Academic Year 2014 – 2015 I helped a student had two GCSE maths students both of whom achieved A* grades. One of which improved from a C to an A* between January and June.

- Academic Year 2015 – 2016 I help a student who had achieved a B in AS Economics go on to achieve an A* in A2 Economics with a 95% average across the unit 3 and 4 exams.

Moving from a D to an A

Was a great tutor who explained everything really clearly and with ease, often using real life examples and scenarios which really helped me understand things I could not do before. He had a vast array of notes that we went over together that covered the whole syllabus and more. Daryl set me tasks weekly (often mock exams) which greatly improved my essay writing skills, especially timing and making the right points and evaluations. The feed back from the work he set also really helped, to the point that I could accurately mark the mock exams myself. Daryl also talked to me a lot about real life examples relevant to economics from recent news, and pushed me to read up and find my own examples too - including these examples in the exams definitely added those extra marks. Would highly recommend Daryl if you want to get results and have someone who is motivational and easy to get on with.

Economics Tutor

Daryl provided our son with tuition in AS and A2 Economics. Our son had not done as well as he expected in his AS Economics exams and needed to re sit these in order to get the grade he needed in Economics to be offered a place to study at his chosen course and university. He also needed help to keep up with A2 modules and help with exam revision for these.

Fantastic Results!

I hired Daryl to help my nephew with his A-level Economics as he achieved a “C” grade in his AS exams, Daryl worked with him for 6 months and in that time he really felt that his essay writing and evaluative skills improved dramatically, he also felt a lot more clear about what exactly was expected by the examiners. As a result he was able to achieve three As and one B in his second year Economics exam, we were all really happy with the result!

The reference about how I found our lessons.

I sincerely welcome the opportunity to write a strong letter of recommendation for my teacher, Daryl Rugless, who is teaching micro and macroeconomics. I highly recommend him to everyone, especially for international students as he is a genius in these subjects.

I have known Daryl for almost one year and I took both subjects: microeconomics and macroeconomics, which I found really interesting. Daryl is very talented teacher because he found the key for every student. For example, I am an international student and my English level was not very high and for me at the beginning of the studying year it was a main problem. But he explained each topic in a very clear and understandable language, so it was very easy to understand them and perform well in the exams.
Subject:
Economics (Pre-U)
Outcome:
As a result, I achieved 74% in microeconomics and 88% in macroeconomics, which became one of the best results in class. Also this gave me the opportunity to finish my foundation course and to enrol

Maths tutor - GCSE

When my son was in Year 10 it became evident that he was really struggling with maths as he was only achieving D/E grades so we decided to find a maths tutor. We found Daryl and he has been working with my son for nearly 2 years. Daryl is an excellent tutor, his age was a real positive as he is up to date with the latest methods and he was able to relate to my son, building up a good relationship with him. Daryl is reliable, patient and hard working and I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending him.

Best tutor! Unthinkable improvements!

When i started getting tutored by Daryl, (first year of GCSE's) my maths abiltity was average, at best. I was achieving C's in my school assesments (sometimes less than this). The reason i wanted a maths tutor was because i was trying to get into a top school in south east london, and Daryl made that possible. He got me past the maths entrance exam, as well as assisting me in achieving an A grade at GCSE maths. As a teenager, i felt like me and Daryl connected on a level past teaching, where i could turn to him for advice about my studies, exam tips as well as later on university applications. Daryl is one of the nicest teachers i have encountered, as well as being a fantastic tutor he is also loved within my family. Daryl was always there via text or call when i had a problem with homework, or again needed some advice and i could not thank him enough for this. His teaching style was perfect for me, with him going into great detail explaining why answers were the way they were, not just instructing me to learn the rules, but being able to understand where they came from - and i believe this allowed me to understand and enjoy maths to a level i had never encountered before. My successful GCSE result, along with my new interest and Daryl's advice persuaded me to study maths at AS level (achieving a strong grade again), with Daryl's tuition throughout i was able to enjoy the course and understand the material extremelly well. Daryl also taught me extremelly important study techniques such as time management, and how to assess myself. These skills have helped me in all my subjects and again i could not thank Daryl enough for this. He is a pleasure to work with and i would 1000000% recommend Daryl to anyone who wishes to do well in maths.

Maths tuition from Chloe Daley

I was tutored by Daryl in 2013 in preparation for my GCSE Mathematics exam. I received regular tuition sessions, and he was very helpful when explaining difficult mathematical concepts. In addition, he set me extra homework aside from the work that I was doing at school which was slightly harder than GCSE level, to really challenge me and develop my understanding of the topic. He was an excellent tutor and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a little bit of extra help to help them to achieve the highest grades.

Daryl was teaching me Economics for 1.5 years and it was the best tutoring I have experienced.
I have received A in Economics as a result of Daryl's guidance and support.
This allowed me to enrol in the first choice university to study the subject I wanted.
He gave me enough confidence and fully clarified things where I was uncertain, so I could transfer my knowledge onto my friends. Thank you Daryl from all of the Russian students.

IGCSE Tutoring

My son Jack had maths igcse tutoring from Daryl leading up to his exams this year. Jack really enjoyed working with Daryl and I think because of his manner Jack felt confident to ask all those questions he was too embarrassed to ask in front of his class! This meant he really focused on what he was struggling with. Daryl was always really helpful and gave great advice, so much so that we changed Jack's A Level choices to Maths. I would have no hesitation in recommending Daryl in the future and hopefully can call upon him again not only for Jack but for my daughter when the time comes.

Fantastic tutor

I was tutored by Daryl for 2 years in economics for my alevels and the amount it improved my understanding and writing skills was huge! He was so helpful and made sure I was perfectly ready for exams with the depth of exam preparation. I received an A grade at both AS level and then an A grade at Alevel and I am certain I wouldn't have achieved them without his help because when he taught me I really noticed the gaps I previously had in my knowledge. He was also very helpful when it came to me applying to do economics at uni and gave me some great help with doing my personal statement!

IB HL Economics

Ok I've sent it over now,

I am in my last year of IB and I found Daryl' economic lessons very efficient - we've covered most of the syllabus by going through past paper questions together and making notes for the parts I thought were harder. He is a very good teacher as he encourages you to find the answer yourself and work from there. He was always there to answer all the questions I've had through whatsapp within minutes! I would definitely recommend him to other students, as he teaches well, is always there to answer questions and also tries to change his schedule around for you so that it would convenient for everyone.

Outstanding private tutor and an incredible role model

If my son had not had been tutored by Daryl the past few years, I think perhaps my son’s mathematics results would be incredibly different. Before starting tutoring with Daryl, my son had come across several figures of authority that didn't see his potential to succeed and instead offered unhelpful advice and opinions. To quote but a few:
“He is not going to be able to cope with secondary school”
“If he were my child I would look at home schooling”
It was so refreshing when we finally found a tutor that recognised my son really wasn't beyond learning in a mainstream school and was capable of do very well in mathematics.
My son has a diagnosis of ADHD, I am in no doubt that at times my son’s disorganisation and poor concentration have been somewhat of a frustration for Daryl, however, he never looked to me, as a parent to resolve the issue. I have always valued Daryl’s thoughts and opinions and felt first and foremost that we were working together as a team to support my son.
This past year I have seen my son sit his GCSE Physics & Mathematics. I am extremely proud that he has not only “coped” with secondary school, he has flourished and achieved a grade B in both subjects.
With this in mind I would like to acknowledge and say thank you for all Daryl’s amazing hard work. Daryl is an outstanding private tutor and as a relatively young gentlemen himself I believe he is and it has been an absolute pleasure knowing him.

Excellent Teaching

I started having lessons at the end of my AS-levels, and in just one month of preparation I have achieved an A and a B in my AS-levels in economics, up from a predicted C for both. I have continued studying with Daryl throughout the A2 year and have achieved a fenominal 93% average for my A2 modules for economics. Every lesson with Daryl meant constant progress, as he put an immense amount of preparation into our lessons and has made sure everything ran smoothly. All the questions that I had outside lesson times were answered very quickly via emails and in great detail, helping me at school. During lessons he was very friendly and engaging, and definitely was a major part of me succeeding in my A-levels

My Managerial economics course


In my second year at SOAS University Of London I decided to take Managerial Economics course. It was the first time I studied this topic and had absolutely no prior knowledge of the subject. As it got more difficult I found it very intense and did not understand much of what was being taught in my Lectures. I was lost and didn't know what to do or if I was even going to get through my exam with a pass.

Daryl was recommended by a friend of mine so I contacted him and started taking private tuition classes. He was very pleasant and was a great teacher. As the exams approached he took me through all the units in detail. I would have classes with him 3-4 times a week (2.5 hour sessions each). I would be in constant contact with him outside my tuition classes. Messaging him on questions I had solved so that he could give me feedback. I took my exam feeling confident.

After the exam I was positive of a good mark, perhaps a 65% which I considered to be a great result. When the results were published I was lost for words. I had a achieved an outstanding mark of 71%! It was my highest grade out of all my 6 subjects. And it was all thanks to Daryl whom never let me down. He was always on time, had a charismatic personality was was always polite. Today I consider him as a friend rather then a tutor. I couldn't have achieved as as I did without his guidance.

Great tutor!

Daryl helped me throughout my A-Level Economics course. Daryl is a master of his subject, conveying all the appropriate material clearly and contextually. He is organised and thoughtful, adapting lessons to best suit my working style. Daryl explains all the key material with precision and provided me with considerable support outside of lessons, answering questions and sending relevant documents. Every lesson i enjoyed learning new topics, with Daryl animating them by referring to current affairs or past events. He also gave substantial feedback on each piece of homework, providing me with ways to improve and helping with exam technique in order to increase my confidence so i felt totally prepared for every exam.
