Information about Greg
UPDATE - Due to the COVID-19 situation, I now work entirely online. The online environment I use allows students individualised tuition during which tackle problems in real time under my guidance.
I often find that students lack application because they don`t understand something taught in class and soon find themselves slipping behind. Thereafter they begin to doubt their abilities and even their potential.
My tutoring style involves lots of encouragement and practice. In each lesson I explain the context and the basics, model answering a question and then guide the student as they work through a number of questions themselves. My aim is to maximise the time they work on questions, as Maths and Physics exam success is built on understanding, practice and even more practice. I also work with them on the right ways to pick up marks in GCSE exams.
So what is my motivation for tutoring? Put simply I love seeing students grow in ability and confidence, and witnessing those "light bulb moments" when a student gets it for the first time is the best!

Having lessons with Greg helps my son a lot. My son enjoy learning with him. I really recommend him.
Greg is an outstanding tutor who knows exactly how to tailor his lessons to meet the specific needs of his tutees. We could not have wished for better.
Greg is great with my son and is assisting to fill the gaps in the learning before embarking on the next hurdles faced. Highly recommend
