Information about Olga

I am an experienced teacher of physics and mathematics. I tutor physics from KS3 to AS/A2 level, and mathematics from KS2 to GCSE and AS/A2 level.

I enjoy tutoring and I motivate my students to achieve to the best of their ability. Many of my students obtain A/A* grades, and all of my students increase in their confidence and get markedly better results than their school grades.

Availability: I am available from Monday Friday from 16:00 to 20:00. Saturday from 09:00 to 16:00. Sunday from 10:00 to 14:00.

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Experience: I have taught physics for 20 years, and I tutor physics and maths to the specifications of all the major examination boards. I have a degree and a higher research degree, both in Physics, and these qualify me to teach both Physics and Mathematics KS3/KS4 and KS5 levels.

DBS Check: Yes

Olga is such a great tutor, helping my daughter with maths and science. My daughter`s confidence is getting better even knowing that she just had a few sessions with Olga so far. Definitely will recommend Olga as she has a lot to offer.

Olga has been a fantastic tutor and we can’t recommend her highly enough. She has given my daughter enjoyable A level physics lessons since September. She has bolstered my daughter’s confidence and greatly expanded her understanding and knowledge of the AQA course.

Thank you very much for your comments,Rachel.

I specifically chose Olga to tutor my son in preparation for his GCSEs based on her bio and her experience and I have not been disappointed. My son`s confidence and understanding of the subject (maths) has increased in only a few months. An assessment was carried out initially to gauge my son`s areas of weakness which i found very helpful and Olga has created a lesson space where he is comfortable to ask any questions he might have to better understand any areas he finds difficult. The lesson material is good and well structured with feedback provided on progress when asked. I am very pleased with my son`s progress so far and will continue to use Olga for as long as she will have us! She comes highly recommended by us! Thank you Mrs Olga xx

Tutors Response :

Olga is one of the best maths tutors I could ask for. In short space of time I found out I will have to do an exam to get a grade B equivalent in maths. After not doing maths for over 6 years I could not remember any of it and I was never good at it in first place. This was hell of a challenge but Olga was amazing at explaining and teaching all topics, she send me preparation material for every lesson and explained each topic until I fully understood it and felt confident in it. Part of me was gutted my lesson have ended as I actually started enjoying maths which I used to hate and did not get at all. She made everything seem so easy and stayed enthusiastic throughout. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn maths and needs to get a good grade as she will get you there even if you struggled with maths in school.

Tutors Response :

Hi Dorota,
Thank you very much for your comments.You always had a serious and mature approach in your study and I am pleased that you have received the highest possible result in Maths in such a short time. I wish you all best in your career.

Olga is a truly fantastic tutor and the best tutor we have had so far. My son always understands her lessons and is so much more confident with his Physics. Olga always sends work before the lesson which she uses to explain the topic and to reinforce the subject to be learnt. I would recommend Olga to anyone who is struggling with Physics. Thank you so much Olga for everything.

Thank you very much for your feedback.

Olga has been tutoring my daughter KS3 maths for a few sessions now. Olga is well prepared - providing materials during the week and in advance of each lesson. As a parent - I really like Olga`s straight forward, `get on with it` approach - and each interaction is lovely. Although my daughter also appreciates this, she feels happy that Olga is always upbeat and teaches her with an approach that encourages learning - very positively working to improve previously weaker areas of learning. From our experience so far, I can very much recommend Olga as a tutor.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for your positive feedback. I am pleased with Rachel’s work and her steady progress.

Olga is very knowledgeable and explains the topic well. Sadly I don’t think online lecturing works for my daughter. Challenging during this time period. Thanks for your time Olga.

Hi Becky- thanks for your feedback.

Our daughter in year 9 is in the top class for maths but lacking in confidence with regards to some of the work compared to her peers. This was compacted throughout lockdown where the teaching was remote, the teaching was fast & asking for help very difficult. Tutor Hunt was highly recommended to us and we have not been disappointed. Olga has been a great match for our daughter. She prepares exam papers in advance of lessons, she checks at the beginning of each lesson what Erin has covered in school & if she needs extra support. Our daughter finds her approachable & easy going we have already noticed our daughters attitude become so much more positive & her confidence grow following only a few lessons. I would highly recommend Olga.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for your comments. I am pleased with Erin’s improvements shown in each lesson. She understands and picks up the work quickly, which shows her intelligence and ability. I am glad to see her grow in confidence and she will ask me to explain anything she doesn’t fully understand. I feel happy in the lesson with Erin, because I know she will master the topic, and she is able to remember and use what she has learned to solve new problems.

She very quickly established a good rapport with our daughter, picking up upon her weakness immediately and providing support for them. She explains things clearly.

We are now coming up to our fifth maths lesson with Olga tutoring our Year 9/13-Year-old daughter. Olga quickly identified our daughters` weak areas, this allowed our daughter to improve these areas within the lesson. In turn, when our daughter has had her maths lesson in school she already had a firm grasp on what was being taught.

We have definitely seen a turn around in our daughters` confidence in a short time through Olga`s clear instruction, patience and calm demeanour.

Although our daughter isn`t struggling in her schools` maths lessons. There is only a certain amount of time that a comprehensive school teacher can spend on one student in a class of 30 other students and Olga has shown what can be achieved within a short period of time with student-focused learning.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Olga as a tutor, she really has been fantastic!
