About Desmond

A friendly, professional tutor that gets results

What I offer?

I am a tutor that has over 10 years experience, over 4000 hours, mainly specialising in;

11+ Science and Maths Entry exams
13+ Science and Maths Entry exams
GCSE/iGCSE Science and Maths
A Level Maths

I have great experience in assisting children to provide them the knowledge and exam practise to get into the school of choice. These include;

Dulwich College, Alleyns, Eton, City of London, Radley, St Pauls, Kings Wimbledon, Whitgift, Emmanuel, Putney High, Wimbledon High, Surbiton High, LEH.

In terms of GCSE/A Level, I have had great success in improving the child's expected grades. One child, under my mentoring, managed to go from a D at AS to and A in his A2s.

Each lesson is tailored to ensure that the child is learning at a swift rate whilst being to approach new questions and ideas.

Usually I will tutor at the tutee's house, so that they are have a comfortable environment, which I feel that they will excel in. I am able to drive to most places within reason and as such, able to tutor face to face rather than online.

Excellent and motivational maths tutor

Written by Teresa B
Desmond tutored my daughter on her GCSE and AS/A level maths. She found the weekly lessons motivating and was able to discuss and debate the questions and answers freely with Des. I think this approach meant that she understood the subject rather than just be 'taught parrot fashion' to obtain the answers. Des helped her to get a good foundation while making the lessons fun and challenging.
Maths (GCSE)
My daughter passed Maths with high As. She will continue to use Statistics and general maths knowledge in her University Degree where she will read Psychology.

Great tutor!

Written by Emily W
I really did struggle with A level maths before Desmond's help, I was always very panicked and never quite sure of myself.

With Desmond's help I really found myself able to overcome this and he is definitely a great tutor for getting the best out of someone and installing the confidence desperately needed!
Maths (A-Level)
I achieved the grade required for me to get into my first choice university so a great outcome for me!

I can highly recommend Desmond

Top class tutor

Written by Rachel J
Desmond has worked with both my children on and off for the past 6 years and in that time their confidence and enjoyment of maths has grown enormously. Thanks in no small part to Desmond, my son gained A* grade in his Common Entrance to Sevenoaks School and my daughter gained A* at Maths GCSE and A in Advanced Maths along with academic scholarships at both 11+ and 13+ to a highly competitive London Day School. We can't recommend Desmond highly enough.
Huge boost in confidence and enjoyment of maths. Plus top class grades at every level.
