Information about Paul

HELLO! Now leaving the bureaucracy of mainstream teaching, I`m wanting to stay teaching in some form and helping students get the grades they deserve.
I find, quite often, that it is a combination of lacking in confidence and a `not getting` of some aspect of subject knowledge that holds people back from getting better grades/understanding.
This can, and will , be remedied!

It requires two things - working through the missing/misunderstood info and building of the confidence. Both of these I have had strong experience in, and find that 1-2-1 tutoring really does help in both of these areas. Please see my feedback to get a flavour of how I tutor and the responses I get!
If you are unsure of how best to be helped, give me a call or email: If I don`t think I can help, I`ll be the first to tell you!

[Note: I`m respectful of people`s income - the recession is hitting us all hard, and I`d rather have work at a lower rate than no work at a higher...
Contact me to discuss your situation if you think this may apply]

Availability: Currently looking for new students for September 2017 and onwards.
Intense `cram sessions` for exams offered at a reduced rate if booked in blocks.
-Update-
Due to an increase in students, I currently have Tuesday evenings and am only accepting day students [home educated / off school] now for the remainder of time. I am no longer tutoring weekends.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have tutored both professionally and for friends` children for the last 13 years, offering assistance to all ages, helping from KS2 up to, and including A Levels [Media and English].
I can also help with adults in learning literacy, numeracy, getting to grips with IT [Microsoft Office and general how-to-use-efficiently] or who may want a `refresher` in a certain aspect of English or Maths to help their children themselves.
I have taught in a large variety of schools and have experience of students with physical and mental impairments. My main experience is in mainstream and I am familiar with most National curricula and exam boards.

Paul has been tutoring my son for only a few weeks but has already impacted his understanding and knowledge of Shakespeare and other English texts.

Paul has been tutoring my daughter for a few weeks now for English GCSE level. Paul has taken the time to get to know my daughter and understand her interests, ensuring the tuition is relevant and interesting for her. My daughter likes Paul and is engaged in his classes.

Tutors Response :

It is a pleasure teaching your daughter as she is eager to learn and explores ideas thoroughly. I am very glad she is enjoying the lessons, I take time to ensure that lessons are made relevant for age and interests - half the battle of learning is engagement!

Our son has responded really well to Paul. Even though he has had only two lessons so far we feel confident that he will benefit immensely from his support. My son finds Paul’s techniques easy to understand which he explains in a calm manner. He is already gaining in confidence in the areas he was struggling with. Hopefully, my son will continue making progress with Paul.
Salma.

Tutors Response :

Paul is a very professional and capable maths teacher. Our son has improved very quickly with his teaching both in confidence and ability. Our son likes Paul`s teaching style, we are very pleased.

Tutors Response :

Your son is a pleasure to teach, continually pushing himself and seeking new ideas and aspects of Maths. He is developing well within the subject, noticeably seen with his recent improvements in exams.

I have found Paul to be a very kind and patient tutor despite my initial concerns (I am in my seventies and do not always understand too quickly).
His explanations are clear and he is able to adjust his teaching to any level.
This is invaluable as my computer skills are out of date and my questions tend to jump about a bit!
He is punctual and treats my home with respect and I look forward to our sessions.

Tutors Response :

It is a pleasure to teach you, watching you learn new skills and then exploring ideas within the frame-work provided. You have pushed your own personal boundaries and this is easily evidenced through your fast progress and usage of IT - keep it up!

Paul taught our daughter for 4 months for 1 hour a week lessons while she was taking her A level 2 for English Lit / Lang this year. There had been a few issues at school which had affected our daughter`s confidence in her own ability for English. As soon as Paul met with our daughter for the first lesson, he instantly put her at ease and she was very happy with his style, and confident that Paul would be a great help. He is a very enthusiastic teacher but very easy going and down to earth with it. We are very pleased to have found Paul on Tutor Hunt because with the assistance of Paul`s excellent and individual teaching style and approach our daughter achieved a high B grade in her A level for English Lit / Lang - great result! We absolutely recommend Paul for anyone looking for extra support or guidance for their sons or daughters. And a lovely guy into the bargain - thanks for everything Paul.

Tutors Response :

It was an honour to work with Yolanda - her enthusiasm for learning is only testament to her support at home and encouragement. All the hard work was hers - I was just part of the process. But glad to be part of it !!!
Congratulations once again on the grades and thanks for the feedback.

Paul tutored my 16 year old daughter for 7 months and helped and supported her in achieving an A grade in GCSE Maths, an A grade in GCSE English Literature and a B grade in GCSE English Language. Many thanks!

Tutors Response :

It was a great result for a student who was focused every lesson and tried her best - it shows! Well done to your daughter - she truly deserves those results!

I was looking for a maths tutor for my 15 year old daughter who was struggling in maths at school and I found Paul via this website.

Paul is an excellent tutor and he knows the curriculum very well and he knows how to explain it to the student to achieve the target grades.

He always tries to make the session interesting and fun for the student to gain confident and interest on the subject.

After few lessons in maths we request him to give some extra help in English Language as well.

My daughter is really enjoying the classes and I think we are very lucky to found him.

We can see from my daughter a very good improvement and confidence in Maths and English Language.

I thoroughly recommend Paul for anyone who looking for a tutor in Maths or English.

Tutors Response :

Having just been told her results today, I am pleased she achieved what she needed for college entry and proud to have taught her.

My son wasn`t getting the grade he knew he was capable of. How lucky we are to have found Paul. The engaging, fun way he teaches has increased my son`s confidence and interest in English, after only a few sessions. To be honest, we all look forward to Monday afternoons.

Paul is professional, friendly and is totally making a difference to my son`s education.

Not your average English tutor, to be sure. Paul always works hard to make sessions fun. He actively teaches and fully engages with the task in hand.

I had been looking for a maths tutor for my 15 year old son who had been struggling to fully engage at school.

I found Paul via this website, and having spoken to Paul on the phone, we had him come to our house for an initial tutoring session.

I arrived home from work to be greeted by a very excited and motivated 15 year old, who proudly showed me the worked he`d done with Paul and could he do the same next week!

That was all I needed to hear from a previously uninterested teenager, struggling to keep up in his maths class at school.

Paul is obviously a very competent and engaging tutor, able to identify areas of interest and adapt his teaching to be a meaningful and relevant experience for his students.

I highly recommend Paul to anyone interested in a tutor that isn`t just going to go through the motions, but actually make learning an interesting and even fun activity for his students.

5 stars from me - highly recommended.

My son enjoys his lessons and actually get excited about him coming over. Paul is extremely professional and I would recommend anybody to use him . He makes the lesson entertaining, whilst teaching ,so that your child does not realize he is learning at the same time. My sons confidence has grown so much since he has been tutored by PAUL . I would 100% recommend parents to use, Paul as their childs tutor.

Don`t waste your time looking at other profiles !!...TRY PAUL NOW ...
