Coronavirus update 19th March 2020
I am continuing to provide online tuition using Skype and an interactive whiteboard. The only facilities you require are a computer/laptop/tablet etc and a reasonable broadband connection. Skype is free to download here and the interactive whiteboard runs in your web browser so no additional software is required for that (you can see the whiteboard here).
In the light of the school closures if you are considering maths and/or physics support then please get in touch here. I try to respond to all enquiries the same day.
Need a maths or physics
I'm a professional tutor with ten years experience offering tuition in maths and physics GCSE and A level based in Liss, near Petersfield, Hampshire. I achieved a first class honours degree in Physics and have an up-to-date DBS (formerly CRB) check.
I follow the current school curriculum and have taught all the major exams boards including International GCSEs. I'm also able to provide past papers for revision and practice.
Subjects and levels
I provide tuition in maths CGSE and A level, and physics GCSE and A level.
This corresponds to school years 10 to 13, although I also tutor year 9 students (ie Key Stage 3) since this year is building up towards the GCSE material. I can also help with related qualifications such as IGCSEs and IB exams.
Based in Liss, near Petersfield, Hampshire, see map for Liss Maths and Physics Tuition. I tutor mainly from my home but can also travel up to 10 miles depending on my schedule.
Over the years I've tutored well over 100 students from most of the local schools and colleges eg TPS, Bohunt, Churcher's, Alton College, Godalming College and many more.

and always makes sure you understand before moving on"

My approach to tuition
I aim to create a friendly atmosphere and encourage my students to ask questions, which they may not ask in a classroom environment. My explanations are clear and simple and I adapt my teaching methods to match my student's school lessons.
It's important to make each lesson an enjoyable and interesting experience and I try to impart my enthusiasm for the subjects.
How does one-to-one tuition help?
Through interacting with my students I'm able to quickly identify problem areas and craft my explanations at a level which the student can understand. One-to-one tutoring can promote the students' interest, help them to enjoy the subject and boost their confidence. I can also provide past papers and help with exam preparation to boost those all important grades.
Not sure if private lessons are right for you?
Whether you are looking for ongoing weekly lessons or just a couple of lessons to help with a particular topic please feel free to call or email to discuss your requirements. Perhaps arrange a trial lesson to see how it goes (there is no obligation to continue).
