Information about Nicolas
I have always been fascinated with numbers, and mathematics was one of my strongest subjects at school. I had the privilege of having a private maths tutor (since I started Year 9 until I did my GCSE exams), and I am eager to give others the same kind of support that I received. I graduated from Birkbeck University with a BSc Mathematics degree.
It gives me a great sense of satisfaction when I learn that a student has benefited from my tuition. I am always glad to help students in any way I can, whether they need a lot of support or they are just looking for an extra boost in their studies.
Availability: Monday to Saturday
Willing to travel: 8 miles
Experience: I have become highly experienced at teaching at the primary, KS3 and GCSE levels over the last five years. I also have a strong overall knowledge of the current A-level curriculum, and I am now looking to gain experience in tutoring at this level too if given the opportunity. I can go over new curriculum material with primary and secondary school pupils to aid their understanding of any mathematical areas that they are struggling with.

Feedback For Nicolas (22)
My son is enjoying his Maths sessions with Nicholas. He is organised, flexible and knowledgeable and is currently working on areas of learning that require extra work.
Nicolas is an excellent tutor. My daughter finds him to be very good at explaining concepts that she finds difficulty with thereby making Maths easier for her.
Our son was really struggling with GSCE maths but Nicholas is helping him to get a real grasp on the subject.
Great tutor .my son is learning a lot already after a few sessions.defiantly recommend Nicolas
Nicolas is reliable and always on time. He explains things well and tries to get an understanding of what the issues are in order to address them.
So far so good, he turns up on time and lessons so far according to my daughter is really helpful. I am pleased so far and hope this will continue as i intend to have this sessions until next year when my daughter finally sits her GCSE,
Nicolas is a very nice chap. Probably not suited to `higher level` maths as my son felt that Nicolas was less confident.
Nicolas has been teaching my daughter for several months now. He is always on time and never late. He shows great compassion for maths and has really helped my daughter to shine. She struggles alot in maths after being diagnosed type 1 diabetec and he has really helped to bring her up again. Her teacher in school also says how much she is improving in maths. Nicolas has the patience of a saint. Highly reccomended.
Very good. Nicolas is really helping our son gain confidence in maths and will tailor the work he sets accordingly.
Very helpful, efficient and pleasant tutor. I can fully recommend him.
Very dedicated to his job
Nicolas is a very good tutor. My son is getting a lot off help from him. Very pleased with his work with my son.
Nicolas is a very polite tutor always on time if not early and always stays to finish off work that he is working through with my son.
My son has gained a lot of confidence at school in understanding what is being taught thanks to Nicolas would recommend him.
We have had Nicholas tutor our godson for 5 weeks and can see an improvement already. He has had maths tests in school and his results are amazing.
Has really boosted confidence.
My son says: "Nicolas is patient and nice and explains things when I don`t understand them"
Nicholas has been tutoring my daughter 1 hour a week for a couple of months primarily to reinforce her knowledge of maths and to assist with any aspects that she has either struggled with or is unsure of. Nicholas has acheived this and my daughter feels that his sessions have been very worthwhile. He is patient and explains carefully and has set her work sheets which she has found very useful. He is a very pleasant and well mannered person and is always on time occassionally staying a little later than he should to complete his task. I would highly recommend Nicholas as his knowledge and teaching is excellent.
We have used Nicholas for about 3 lessons now and it is ongoing until my daughter sits her GCSE maths. She is at a Grammar and is taught well but the workload is tough so she was struggling with certain topics. Her feedback is that Nicholas does not talk throughout the lesson and that enables her to get more work done (the last teacher did!), she also likes that he gives her homework and explains things well. We did try one teacher before this one and found that she only got two topics covered in one hour. She is already feeling more confident and so i highly recommend him. Also i choose him because he had quite high feedback and he did his first lesson free so having wasted money on the first tutor, i think this is a great bonus that you can see if your child and the tutor work well together, otherwise you could spend money trying several tutors and keep throwing money down the drain. As of 23.08.2018, my daughter got her GCSE results and received a grade 6, which is a B. She would never have got this without the tutor`s help.
We think we are very lucky to have found Nicolas to tutor our son. He has helped him to understand math, in a clear precise way. We would definitely recommend him as a tutor.
We have had a couple of lessons with Nicolas and is going very well, My son has found the way that Nicholas explains the way to work out the questions in easier and understanding way.
Nicolas has open Connor come up in levels . He has made it easy for Connor to understand and has been great help .
Nicolas is reliable and friendly. He helps my daughter to understand her curriculum and they work well together. Nicolas also sets extra homework for my daughter and checks it the following week. This has resulted in her feeling a lot more confident to take her maths exams.
Seemed to lack knowledge required
Nicholas is always on time. Maisie enjoys the lesson and her maths is improving. He is very patient and explains everything. We are very pleased with Maisie`s progress.
Very good teacher, kids loved the way he teaches them. He`s very flexible for time.
Nicolas is a kind and friendly tutor, who arrives on time and comes fully prepared to the sessions with worksheets etc.
Did not meet the requirement nor able to demonstrate the commitment of a tutor so we agreed to part company.
Very reliable and excellent time keeper. Lessons prepared well for student. Patient tutor who helped my daughter with GCSE maths for a short period.
