Westminster School, Durham University, 8 yrs, 3000+hrs

In July 2014 I graduated with a 2:1 BA degree in Geography from Durham University.

After attending Hill House International School, I went to Westminster School and then to Haberdashers` Aske`s Hatcham College for sixth form. Since the age of 15 I have been tutoring pupils in a number of subjects including Maths, English, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Verbal (and Non-Verbal) Reasoning and Latin as well as History, Economics, Geography and Ancient Greek.

I have a wealth of experience tutoring children from the ages of 6 to 18, in particular in preparation for 11+, Common Entrance and GCSE examinations, ensuring attainment results for their desired secondary school ranging from Westminster, Eton, Harrow, Dulwich and St Paul`s to the International School of Choueifat in Beirut. Since leaving university I have worked as a full-time tutor and now have more than 3000 hours of experience.

I stress the need to understand exam technique, and as well as building on the child`s knowledge within and beyond their curriculum, I teach to understand the demands of examinations, how to prepare well for exams generally and I help them to improve their confidence.

So far I have tutored over 100 children with consistently positive results, whatever the level of the child. I also have experience teaching home-schooled children.


I am available in and around London.

I look forward to hearing from you,


Nick

Tutor referral

Nick helped our son (who attended a top London day school) for over a year, covering Geography, Math and Science. He was extremely polite, professional and punctual. He helped our son get organised with his school work, revision schedules for exams and of course going through the content. His calmness and patience made it easy for our son to get along with him and he looked forward to his sessions with Nick. During intense exam revision periods, Nick would also take him to the park for some down time and our son loved those breaks. Due to the strong bond that Nick created, our son did very well under his tutelage, improving his confidence and his exam results. I would highly recommend Nick as a tutor.

Tutor recommendation

Nick is an excellent tutor who was always very professional and reliable. I would strongly recommend him. His rapid assessment of the areas my son needed to improve on meant that he was able to make progress very quickly. Nick's strong interpersonal skills meant he quickly built a very good rapport with my son who actually enjoyed the tutoring sessions in a subject he was not keen on. He was very thorough and took care to ensure that my son was proficient in a particular area before moving on to other things. Nick enabled my son's confidence to grow significantly and inspired him to eventually achieve two grades higher than predicted.
Subject:
Maths (GCSE)
Outcome:
Improved final grade and greater confidence not only in maths but other subjects.
