Information about Malcolm

I am a fully qualified, experienced teacher with excellent references and testimonials.

I am married with two teenage children and I live in West Bridgford, Nottingham.

My goal is to help your child fulfill their potential in an effective and enjoyable way. I am a professional private tutor with 29 years experience of teaching in schools as well as several years of full-time private tuition. I am happy to offer long-term or intensive tuition during term-time and holidays. I have access to the leading exam revision website with questions organised by topics for all the exam boards which I make available free of charge to my students.

I have a proven track record of helping students improve by up to 3 grades, with many students gaining places on medicine, dentistry and Oxbridge.

I am happy to offer lessons at my house or at your house if you live close to West Bridgford. Skype lessons also available. Please contact me to see how I can help you.

Availability: Weekdays 9.00 - 8.00 pm.

Weekends 9.00 - 5.00 pm.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I have taught at Nottingham High School for 25 years and provided tuition to children aged from 9 - 18 years old.

I have been rated by my Head of Department as an excellent, enthusiastic teacher with an outstanding grasp of the subject who has helped students of all abilities fulfill their potential.

I am currently tutoring biology A level to students from West Bridgford School, Rushcliffe, Beckett, Trent College, Nottingham High School and Nottingham Girls` High School and I am familiar with the OCR and AQA examinations. I am available during the day if students have free lessons and can even collect the student from school or drive them to school if required.

I am tutoring maths to several students in Year 5 and 6, helping those that find maths difficult as well as those wishing to be challenged with harder work and preparing others for entrance exams/SATS. Students come from a number of West Bridgford schools. I am helping year 7, 8 and 9 students who find maths hard or are able and looking to be extended as well as year 10 and 11 students who are preparing for GCSE. I also tutor biology, chemistry and physics to many students who find the subjects hard or need the extra help to gain grade 9s.

Malcolm has been tutoring my 9 year old for a couple of weeks now in KS2 maths. My son really enjoys the sessions and is growing in confidence. Malcolm interacts well with him and engages him in learning. It’s too early to tell the impact but we hope this will translate to improved results in future.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much. He is a pleasure to help.

We didn’t have Malcolm for long due to the coronavirus scenario but in the short time we did, he built our sons confidence and really helped with his sciences.

Malcolm is a great tutor. His knowledge of the subject is evident but the best aspect of Malcolm`s tutoring is his experience as a teacher (not a student of the subject, like other tutors on this site). He engages both our children through a mixture of games, puzzles, formal teaching and lots of great communication with them. I would not hesitate to recommend Malcolm.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you all.

Like any parent I was concerned about taking my 11 year old child to one to one sessions with a person we do not know. However my son who is in his final year at junior school has been having a weekly sessions with Malcolm for months now and feels very relaxed in Malcolm`s company and even said he enjoys it. He tells me that he always learns new things in each session and wishes to continue despite being up and running now. He said that he feels comfortable discussing anything with Malcolm that he doesn`t understand. Malcolm has structured lessons working through the curriculum at your child`s level and he was happy to go through a couple of mock SATs papers that I had requested from school that my son had struggled with which was ideal as it showed where the gaps were. My son was initially strong in maths but his ability gradually dropped to getting low scores in tests as he progressed through junior school and as his confidence plummeted, to my suprise he asked us if he could have a tutor. After a few months of seeing Malcolm his grades in his tests have more than doubled along with his confidence. We`re very lucky to be able to afford a tutor, it is money well spent as my son is a lot happier which is the main thing and as such I wholeheartedly recommend Malcolm.

Malcolm has being tutoring our year 11 daughter for approx 10 sessions once a week leading up to her GCSE exams. She has now come through her exams in a surprisingly calm manor & appears to have done well although only time will tell.
Malcom is thoughtful & cared about our daughters progression throughout her subjects. We employed Malcolm to help with maths but all the sciences were also covered throughout the 10 weeks.
We can not recommend Malcolm enough & won’t hesitate using him again in the future.

We chose Malcolm to tutor our daughter A-level Biology due to the previous good reviews he had and he has certainly lived up to expectation. Our daughter really enjoys her sessions with him and finds them very helpful and interesting - she also finds him to be a really nice person. From a parental perspective we can see the benefits of his tutoring as her grades have already improved in her class tests as he’s helped her to not only understand the subject matter but also how to answer the questions to get the most marks. We would highly Malcolm as a tutor.

Malcolm has been tutoring my son in A level Biology. My son says Malcolm is great at explaining content to improve understanding. He has provided good identification of the resources available and effective approaches to question types, e.g. essays and practicals. He is friendly, welcoming and approachable in his teaching. The cost of tutoring is reasonable compared to others.

Malcolm has been tutoring my daughter in A level biology for several months now.
He is very knowledgeable about the subject and the current syllabus and my daughter has found his lessons hugely beneficial.
I would definitely recommend him.

My daughter has found Malcolm a great help in her Biology A-Level preparations, and her confidence has increased at the same time which is sometimes half the battle. So very pleased. I have also found Malcolm to be very easy and amenable to make arrangements with.
