Information about Frank
In addition to my part-time role at a local college and at an International Study Centre teaching A-level maths, physics and, when required, BTEC engineering, I have been privately tutoring A-level and International Baccalaureate Diploma Physics and Maths. I have also tutored the Cambridge pre-U qualification, entrance exams and American School system SATS. A couple of times a week I coach juniors at primary level in chess.
Currently I am only doing ONLINE tuition. Under non-COVID-19 conditions, students can receive their tuition at my home in Byfleet, Surrey. I also travel to students when this is mutually convenient, in which case I generally ask for a travel fee.
My students typically come from locations in or around West Byfleet, New Haw, Cobham, Weybridge, Esher, Walton, Woking, Oxshott, Claygate and East or West Horsley.

Frank is really professional. He identified and targeted the specific areas where the children needed help and has given maths help as well as physics. I would definitely recommend Frank for A Level physics tutoring.
