Information about William
I am now available on-line, during the day and evenings.
Year 7 to 9 and Year 10 students (KS3 and KS4) may be struggling with learning from home, without much support for explanations of tricky topics that they are struggling to understand. A little bit of support can work wonders in terms of knowledge and understanding, and particularly in terms of confidence and clever thinking.
Meanwhile, Year 11 students may want to refresh their subject knowledge and understanding before starting their A-levels.
Contact me if this is you! I use Skype!
I am a qualified and experienced teacher, working full time on one-to-one tuition, specialising in Maths and the Sciences.
I am particularly adept at helping students who are struggling with the subjects or who are suffering from a lack of confidence. We identify the reasons, and then use a variety of strategies to resolve any issues - often these are gaps in knowledge and understanding from earlier in the student`s school career. We then decide how to approach the tuition - working on specific issues, or working alongside the school lessons, embedding the knowledge and understanding. Of course, these two approaches are often combined! I also have a significant set of resources in my office, where I prefer to work.
Contact me for a free no-obligation half-hour consultation in my purpose built office, where we discuss the issues and agree thhalf hour no-obligation consultation online via Skype (or in my purpose built office when things return to normal), where we discuss the issues and agree the way forward.
(All tuition sessions take place in my well-resourced purpose-built office, so my customers travel to me, when things return to normal, depending on your preference.)
Availability: Weekday evenings, Monday to Thursday, to suit you. Weekdays (morning, afternoon and evenings) during school holidays, and during school closures.

Experience: A fully qualified and experienced teacher, who specialised in supporting not just high fliers, but also struggling and disengaged students. My wide experience in the real world allows me to link science and maths to everyday life, and also link concepts between the different topics within the curriculum - this enables the students to fit their new knowledge into an existing structure, which makes it much easier to remember and understand. I am enthusiastic about my subjects (and related subjects, as well as history) which also helps engender interest because I can talk about examples where the science under discussion is used in the world around.
I am now well into my fifth year of tutoring, with a current list of about 15 students on my books, with significant number of these being recommendations.
I also have previous experience in financial services and technical industries, with computer programming and project management skills.
Feedback For William (6)
Communication was always prompt and efficient. Flexible and accommodating. Found William to be thorough
William has been amazing, he has adapted his teaching style so that he can teach my daughters remotely. They still receive one to one but it is now online rather than in his office ( which was perfect ) due to the Coronavirus restrictions put in place. Keep up the excellent work William.
excellent tutor. very patient with my son.
We`ve used William to tutor 2 of our children. Both liked working with him very much. He has a very casual and relaxed attitude that my kids definitely responded to with very positive results. His facilities are also more than adequate for the purpose as he works form a dedicated home office with computers and texts available onsite. Highly recommended
Very nice and professional
William has just tutored my boys in all 3 sciences pre GCSE. He was brilliant in all respects. He prepared in advance for each lesson, he had a great approach with the boys, he knew the subjects very well and also gave lots of tips on exam technique and maximising marks. It has made a real difference. I would highly recommend him.
