Information about Paul


HELLO! Now left 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: NONE.
I AM NOT TAKING ANY NEW STUDENTS ON CURRENTLY - Thank you for looking though.
Please contact me after August 2020 if you are still looking for a student for the upcoming academic year.
Thank you.

Willing to travel: 1 miles


I have tutored both professionally and for friends` children for the last 15 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.

Olivia has gone from strength to strength in Maths and, with the skills we have worked on together, been able to approach all of her exams in a calmer manner - I have been honoured to be part of her journey.

Paul is a very good English tutor and he has helped my daughter develop her confidence within the space of only three lessons. This has helped her a lot and we are very glad that we were able to get his contact details. Thank you very much Paul.

Paul has only been working with my son for a short time but has already hugely increased his confidence in his own ability. Paul was able to swiftly understand him and assess the specific needs he has. Thank you for making English not seem so daunting for him!

Tutors Response :

It is lovely when the student engages so well and wants to learn - part of this is the tutor`s job, but part comes from the skills and determination instilled in themselves from parenting and family life - thank you for making the lessons so successful thus far!

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.

Tutors Response :

It is a pleasure teaching your son as he is eager to learn and explores ideas thoroughly. I am very glad he is enjoying the lessons - it is always enjoyable exploring new ideas with a bright student and he is developing quickly!

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.

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 ...
