Over last 6 years Simon has helped me with various subjects. ICT, Business Studies and Economics. I am now going to university to study business. He is friendly and takes time to get to know his tutees. He is reliable, always on time and also has a great sense of humour making studying enjoyable. He took an interest in my cricket too helping me keep focused on my studies whilst progressing as a potential first class cricketer.

An outstanding practitioner
Simon is a dedicated, professional and highly skilled teacher. He has years of classroom experience - invaluable in a tutor as he understands the exam process and knows exactly what is expected from students at each level. He inspires confidence, and effectively shows students how to reach their full potential and improve their grades. I would highly recommend him.
I would highly recommend Simon.
Attentive tutor who provides the important fundamentals
Simon was able to provide direction, discipline, skills and support which I felt I needed and he also identified with. In the initial stages of my tuition a timeline of my courses was analysed whereby weak areas were pinpointed and focused upon and developed. I was directed to obtain the appropriate sources of information and develop my understanding of the subjects, especially those I was unfamiliar with. In turn this knowledge was fed back to my tutor. With this essay questions were also considered and discussed giving further scope to my studies.
Naturally, doing this also provided solid groundwork for my other future essays and expanded my skills, preparing me early on for the end of year exams which - like many - were constantly on my mind. To ease my tensions and bolster my confidence these areas were continuously revisited which refreshed my knowledge of the subject. Throughout my time with Simon I became more sure in knowing what to look for when studying and planning for essays. I was also constantly reminded of the possibility of using knowledge from one subject and feeding it into another to provide linkage and further understanding.
Exam preparation was key in which Simon greatly helped with, providing me with helpful exam techniques such as being able to write up quick, well developed and coherent essay plans. Concise relevant revision notes were also written up.
I would say that the skills and development gained from Simon being my tutor still helps me to this day and makes me feel confident in study, planning and preparation. It also helps if a tutor has a sociable side to them, as it greatly aids in building a relationship of trust between student and tutor. I would say this was strongly the case with Simon.
I received an upper second class degree and solid skills I still use and refer to this day, helping me with my career.
Simon's business studies tutoring helped me enormously. I passed my A level with an A grade as a direct result of his teaching. Clear and precise guidance with tests and home study. His one to one approach worked well, and his enthusiasm for the subject was infectious. I was able to retain more information on the subject as a result of Simon's tutoring skills. I would fully recommend Simon as a tutor without hesitation.
