Extremely Friendly, Qualified and Experienced Tutor

Hi! I’m Sonny and I have been teaching all Sciences and Maths for the past 5 years to students from primary school up to A-level. I am passionate about education and believe that all students can excel given the correct guidance.

So, a bit about myself and how I work:

I have been teaching for the past 5 years; before university, throughout my degree and since then also. I graduated from UCL with a 2:1 (69%) and thoroughly enjoyed learning and teaching as a tutor concurrently. During university I worked as a tutor abroad in Germany and Switzerland, and also acted as a mentor through the National Citizen Service initiative.

My view is, and has always been, that the number one factor which affects the ability of a student to learn productively is confidence as a result of total comfort in the learning environment. As such, I enjoy building a healthy rapport with my students and I will often stay after a lesson has finished to discuss career aspirations, higher education or even their favourite TV programs! All this is so that the student feels fully comfortable working with me and their confidence increases as they learn and start to see results. Having said this, my approach during the lesson is always structured, professional, and tailored to the needs of each individual student.

I cover school entrance exams (9+, 11+, 13+, 16+) in addition to Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry (to full A2 level) and Physics (to AS level).

I look forward to hearing from you and would be more than happy to answer and queries you may have regarding my background and availability.

Thank you

Excellent tutor

Sonny helped Roman to get ready to his 11+ tests in maths. Starting at a rather low level Roman made an amazing progress in only 5 weeks of studying with Sonny. Moreover he was always looking forward to his lessons. Sonny is very good at explaining the most difficult material and make it interesting for his student, he is also very responsible and reliable.

Outcome:
Roman got to the school he wanted with the highest results in maths on his exam

I have found Sonny to be an excellent tutor. My son was not very good or interested in learning, but was able to understand the Maths that Sonny taught him, he had very good communication skills aimed at my son's age and ability levels, he even kept my son's attention for a period of 3 hours in one go which I though was astounding. My son even told me how useful and easy to understand Sonny was, Sonny is very patient and ensured that Daniel (my Son) understood the text before moving on to another element of Maths. He also gave my son tutoring with the sciences but we only had 1 week to brush up on this revision but again daniel found it very useful too.
Sonny is very personable, punctual and curteous too. I have already recommended him to friends and would rate him very highly for any future employer
