Great passionate Maths teacher!

I worked with Karl in TeachFirst and have seen him teach a lot of times. He's extremely passionate about his students, makes things very easy to understand and controls the curriculum to perfection. He has extremely good reviews and I will definitely recommend him to anyone willing to improve their maths skills!

Excellent tutor, would recommend to anyone

I feel I can wholeheartedly recommend Karl for his depth of knowledge in his subject area, his teaching techniques, and his demeanor as a person. I do so without reservation. Karl helped my children to not just memorise formulas but strived toward their complete understanding of math concepts. He is also one of the nicest people you can hope to meet!

Brilliant Tutor

Trying to get my 9 year old to do homework is usually like trying to get blood out of a stone. He just finished his first session with Karl grinning and saying 'I really enjoyed that! When can I do it again?'. Can't recommend him enough...

Highly recommend Etutor

Karl had been tutoring my son in maths and I can say that he is a fantastic teacher. My son lacked some self-confidence with his maths and Karl has not only given him the confidence to continue maths to A-Level but also helped improve my sons grades overall. My son found Karl's explanations very easy to understand and the techniques he employs to help recall key concepts very useful. I cannot fault Karl in anyway and I am happy to highly recommend him.

Maths
Outcome:
My sons confidence in maths has increased so much as a result of having extra maths tuition with Karl that he decided to continue maths at A-Level

Brilliant first lesson

I just had my first online lesson with Karl today. Within minutes he identified where I was struggling and then explained what I needed to know to answer the questions. His explanations were really clear and he somehow made the topic really easy to understand! The interactive whiteboard is particularly useful because I can save the slides and review them anytime after the lesson. I'm really looking forward to our next lesson!

Maths tutoring for my 10 year old

Karl helped my son to feel more confident as his Year 6 SATs approached. He had a calm manner and my son looked forward to working with him each week. My son said he liked the way Karl helped him without just giving him the answers. We are taking a break for summer but will definitely be using Karl again.
