About Phineas

Former Harrow School master and experienced tutor

For the past year I have been working at Harrow School as a master.

A highly qualified tutor with over 8 years experience specialising in exam entrance and preparation from 11 plus to A Level. Fluent in French and speaking good German, I have a natural thrive for helping children in their education and has a very high success rate.

Since 2008 I have been tutoring and successfully gaining students places in schools such as Harrow, Eton, Winchester and Westminster.

In 3 months I changed a students grade from an E in English and French to a final result of A* in GSCE.

I have been attached to 2 families as a tutor and have brought up each students ability in school to a substantially high level.

Two years ago I taught an American boy who had recently arrived in the UK to take Common Entrance, British History and French (neither of which he had taken at his New York school), his results were 75% and 83% respectively.

Superb Tutor

Written by Linda P
Phineas tutored my son through GCSE level French and English and went on to teach him French at AS level. Phineas established a good relationship with my son and motivated him to achieve the A grades in all the subjects which he tutored him for. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any tutoring post.
Subject:
English Literature (GCSE)
Outcome:
A grades in all subjects!

Fantastic Tutor

Written by Carol M
We had moved to England from abroad, with less than a year for my son to prepare for the 13+ Common Entrance. Phin was engaged to undertake this daunting task and did so with great results. He was extremely reliable and prompt, a master at keeping a fidgeting boy focused, always kind and polite , but firm in his resolve to stay on subject. He has a thorough knowledge of the complete range of subjects needed for 13+ and makes learning fun. He is a delightful person in every way. He came on holiday with the family and was a great addition to the trip, fitting in well with all, yet never forgetting his charge and what needed to be accomplished . We thoroughly recommend Phin and wish him well in his new enterprise.
Outcome:
Successful entry into Harrow

Knowledgeable and good-natured tutor

Written by Olga D
Phineas was a very friendly tutor that easily got along with our son Richard. He was quick to spot Richard's abilities at the first lesson. Phineas polished his knowledge and worked on the improvement of his performance at exams. We are happy with his contribution to Richard's success.
