Professional Maths and English Tutor Producing Top Results

I am a fully qualified teacher with many years’ teaching experience both in primary and secondary schools.
I have been a successful home tutor since 2004 getting many students through GCSEs and 11 Plus exams.
My students always enjoy their lessons and many have happily continued with me for five or more years.

I teach via Skype multi camera technology as well as online whiteboards..
I also use my own website to provide a personalised page with tailored resources for each pupil.

I specialise in teaching English and Maths from primary level through to GCSE. Also Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning for 11 plus / Common Entry exams for grammar schools.

I currently live in Launceston, Cornwall, UK where I offer face to face lessons at home as well as online.

I hold a BA (Honours) and a PGCE along with a number of In-Service Training (inset) qualifications.

Kind, patient and purposeful.

Paul is a most capable teacher who brings clarity and simplicity to his approach. He enjoys the enviable advantage that he is himself keen to study, and then to share what he learns. He does this most effectively.

My tutor's lessons were the best lessons I have had and I learned a lot from him.

My tutor's lessons were the best lessons I have had and I learned a lot from him.
I started his lessons because I didn't do that well in school but I have now done lessons with my tutor for more then 6 years.
His lessons were so useful because he taught me the things that my old school hadn't taught me that much. My tutor would help me a lot and he knew my level of understanding and how well I work. I appreciated my tutor making me worksheets that I could understand because he knows the stuff I can do and the stuff I can't do.
My tutor treated me with a lot of respect and that's the same way I have treated him.

Outcome:
My tutor helped me to understand things so well that I have returned to him now for help at college.

Very resourceful and sharp teaching techniques which are easy to understand and adapt.

Because of the way that my tutor has taught me I have found my Skype lessons to be very
valuable and effective. I have made massive improvements in Maths, having moved up from a Foundation group to Higher.
My teachers are confident that I can pass.

My lessons have been enjoyable and I always feel that I am treated with respect. I am often given the option of whether to do homework and if I ever miss a homework deadline we set another deadline with no problems.

Initially I had face to face tuition, so I wasn't too sure about going over to tuition by Skype. But now I would definitely recommend it as it is more efficient. The option to message my tutor via Skype in advance of my lesson means that we can cover any subjects that are causing me trouble during my lesson.

In addition tutoring from Mr Jury is what mainly made me confident to take my exams as the way in which I was taught everything was extremely clear and simple to understand. I passed GCSE Maths with a grade B due to the methods and understanding of Mr Jurys teaching otherwise I would've most likely achieved a low C grade at the most. It is because of the lessons I had that helped me to rise from a D/C student to exceeding expectations and achieving a overall grade B.
Subject:
Maths
Outcome:
The outcome was that I was able to achieve a grade B in Maths with full confidence and support until the exam was taken, Mr Jury's teaching is what helped me to achieve this grade B and I am most

Parent Feedback

Paul has now been tutoring my son via skype for over 6 months. It was hard to find the correct tutor for my son as my son finds it difficult to gel with people. Paul has been exceptionally brilliant in helping my son progress in his maths, english, verbal reasoning, non verbal reasoning and 11+ prep for exams. My son has really improved in school and his performance has exceeded. My son is really enjoying his lessons and finds Pauls teaching skills outstanding. My son finds his turoing by Paul really well and enjoyable and has now started to have more lessons. Paul has been a great asset in helping my son improve in his education. As a parent it is hard to find the correct tutor, but with Paul, it has been fine, Paul maintains a proffessional throught his teaching and he always liases with myself with any feedback regarding my sons progress. Paul always issues my son with independant working which my son always gets feedback either before or during the lesson. My son has found the website Paul uses to teach him very easy to follow and use. Paul has been a real asset in helping my son achieve and improve his grades. Well done to Paul for his excellent, proffessional services.
