About Tim

A passionate tutor with over 1800 hours experience

An Imperial College London Graduate with a PGCE and Qualified Teacher Status from University College London, and professional Tutor for the past 5 years. I am an enthusiastic person who brings a very positive energy to learning Maths and Science with over 1800 hours experience. I specialise in being flexible in my teaching style in order to build confidence in the students I teach by adapting my teaching style to best suit their strengths and needs.

I'm also a very active person outside of academia, very interested in travel and exploration. Having participated in several expeditions to the Arctic and expeditions to discover new cave passages in a remote cave system in Slovenia, living out of a rucksack for up to six weeks at a time, I have gained skills and experiences which are relatively unique.

I spent the last year undertaking post-graduate teacher training at UCL to develop my tutoring further. During this time, I maintained a consistent level of individual tuition, so I am currently up to speed with the school learning environment, the ins and outs of the different school syllabuses and the current pedagogical theories of teaching and learning.

I will be only be available to tutor via Skype this year. However I have a computer set-up which allows me to conveniently interact using a tablet to show hand written notes in real time whilst also allowing me to provide useful colour coordinated notes at the end of each lesson. There is no need for a video feed from the students end, although a smart phone is useful to send photos of problems or workings.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me and I will respond within 24 hours.

Please contact me before booking, as my availability does not always reflect my true availability due to high demand.

The best decision you will make about your child's maths and physics

Written by Cheryl J
Tim is simply amazing. My son has literally moved from a C/D at A level maths prediction to an A/ A* that he is expected to achieve this June. Tim understands that some students do not always find certain aspects of maths obvious but works hard to quickly identify their weakness and turn that into their strength. Whatever your child's ability, Tim knows the right approach. He is a brilliant mathematician himself studying physics at
Imperial College, London and is enthusiastic about the subject. He is very likeable; he is not your typical maths geek and I think that, this in particular, will make it easier for your son or daughter to connect with him. I really like how he works through the maths problems with you and
points out a way to get them right. He is both encouraging and engaging and helps your son and daughter build up confidence in maths. Tim has a lovely manner and is a good teacher for both boys and girls of all ages and all abilities. I can't thank Tim enough. I would recommend that you get him on board as soon as you can as the maths tutor for your child because he will get you the results that you need.
Subject:
Maths (A-Level)

From D to A/A*

Awesome dude

Written by Muntaha B
Tim is a caring, friendly and enthusiastic person that helps you understand what you're stuck on. I'm delighted to have such a wonderful tutor and could not ask for anything better. He's made me feel a lot more comfortable with what I'm learning at school and also isn't intimidating nor patronizing like most teachers at school. I found doing A-level maths impossible until I met Tim; he made even the hardest of topics seem simple and doable. I would recommend him to anyone that needs help on maths.
Thanks Tim, you're awesome :)

Tim was patient and really clear, as well as being really friendly. He came at very short notice, on a bank holiday, to help me with trigonometric identities and integration for my A Level, and in one session he was able to work theugh what I wasn't understanding. I'm really greateful for his help, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Fantastic Tutor!

Written by Carolyn T
Booking Tim was the best thing we did in preparation for my sons GCSE's. Although very capable my sons confidence in his maths abilities was low after just not " relating to maths" in school and this also affected his Physics which he wanted to study at A level. Tim engaged him with the subject, and I watched his confidence bloom. His results, A in maths and A* in physics and his whole new attitude to study mean that he is really enjoying A level's. I would not hesitate to recommend Tim.

We engaged Tim when my daughter had lost all confidence in her ability to do AS Maths at the end of the Autumn Term. He worked patiently with her to re-build her confidence and to help her understand the areas where she was struggling. He does a really good job of explaining the concepts and helping students work through problems in a relaxed and friendly manner. We were delighted with the results he achieved.

Maths (A-Level)

Excellent AS result

Terrific Tutor

Written by Susan A
Tim is a terrific tutor! He is friendly, bright and confident and has a natural ability to inspire his students. Our son had lost all confidence in his Maths abilities and with Tim’s patience and care he achieved a three grade raise in his Maths AS result. We couldn’t recommend him more highly.

Tim is a super guy. Very engaging and confidence inspiring. My son was struggling with maths and Tim has given him confidence in his ability to learn. I would highly recommend Tim. We have used other Tutors before and my son did not engage with them but because of Tim he has started to enjoy his maths lessons at school and is actively doing his homework!
Subject:

Outcome:
Enjoying maths .... first term of year 10. Best outcome we could have hoped for at this stage in his GCSE maths course

Fantastic help at Tutorfair event

Written by Tutorfairy F
Tim was a great help at the Imperial event that the Tutorfair team attended to tell university students about how they can earn money and help others through working with us. He was assured, knowledgeable and friendly which was brilliant for us. I'm sure Tim will be equally good when tutoring one on one!

Lots of tutors signed up to Tutorfair!

Excellent tutor, highly recommended

Written by Dominic P
We turned to Tim for GCSE Maths tuition for my son who had lost confidence after several changes in teachers at school. Tim immediately helped him with the difficult topics and to enjoy the subject again. My son achieved a higher grade than had been predicted at school - and two grades higher than the mock GCSE exam that first prompted us to employ Tim. My son is now studying Maths at A Level, which is directly down to Tim's excellent and friendly tutoring at GCSE.

Tim was a great find

Written by Angela A
My daughter was struggling with her A level maths. Tim has helped her gain confidence and feel much more positive about the course. She says he is really patient and positive. He has helped her view problem solving in a number of ways that her school teachers had not focussed on. We are hoping for a good result in the summer now she is back on track. I would highly recommend Tim and his approach to teaching msths.
