Information about Geoffrey
I am an extremely successful tutor. I have been Head of Science and Head of Chemistry for many years at state Grammar Schools and at Independent Schools. My approach is to discern quickly where a student is having difficulties and to tailor a program to suit their needs. I use a variety of teaching techniques to make the teaching of A` level chemistry and GCSE chemistry, physics and mathematics crystal clear. My students appreciate this personal approach - and it guarantees success. Many students improve upon their predicted grades as a result. Often by one or two grades!
My interests are varied but I particularly enjoy flying! I am a qualified pilot who really loves aerobatics! Freedom in 3 dimensions!
Availability: Any time.
Willing to travel: 30 miles
Experience: BSc (1st class), MRSC.
Teaching 30 years. Head of Chemistry/Science 20+ years.
Feedback For Geoffrey (22)
Geoffrey tutors my son, 12, and my daughter, 15, both at local Grammar Schools, in Maths. They have only seen him twice so far, but have been very happy with him and his teaching. Communication with him is also very easy, prompt replies to emails, always on time, always helpful. Can very much recommend.
Great chemistry tutor. Very knowledgeable of the subject and clear in his teaching methods, thank you very much
Cancelled on me after one session
Tutors Response :
After one session? You cancelled immediately after the first session telling me you were on a "university visit". Next, I received a phone call telling me you couldn`t come as you were ill. I questioned as to why a university visit should have morphed into an illness. Only then did I cancel.
Very good at explaining and in depth knowledge on any question asked
My daughter is studying for her gcses. She needed to build her confidence in Maths. Even after just two lessons, she is feeling more settled with the subject, Geoffrey is a fantastic tutor, explaining everything in detail and in a way that my daughter understands. Thanks so much Geoffrey and Tutor Hunt, so pleased we found you!
Geoffrey has a really relaxed but professional manner. He immediately put my daughter at ease. After her first lesson with Geoffrey, she said to me `he is a good teacher and well explanatory mum` . She is really looking forward to her next lesson. I would highly recommend.
My daughter is in year 10 and she has been tutored by Geoff for a couple of months now. Geoff is always very punctual, polite and very patient. Hes really improved my daughters confidence in maths and shes at a stage now where shes actually enjoying the subject. Her recent end of year tests have seen her results jump up by over 30%! We will continue to use Geoff for year 11 and then use him for my you get daughter. Cant recommend him highly enough!
Geoffrey is an absolutley fantastic tutor. My daughter has ADHD and Geoffrey has found a way to teach her so that she understands and isnt afraid to say if shes missed something hes already explained. (a common problem with ADHD). Hes patient and effective and hes given her back her confidence after a disastrous first term in sixth form at a private school. Hes never, ever late and we are very lucky to have found him. I cannot recommend him highly enough, hes just amazing; you wont be disappointed.
Geoffrey is patient, positive, listens well to adapt the teaching and all in all, a fantastic teacher. My son has got on well with him right from the start. Highly recommend him.
My son had only one session with Geoffrey. He was pretty organised and very polite. Seems to have a lot of experience.
My son had a good session but we were unable to find a mutually convenient time.
Geoffrey has a very calm manner about him and is able to explain things to my daughter in a way that she is understanding. Geoffrey is very prompt and immediately settles into teaching. Very pleased to have found him and happy to recommend him.
Geoffrey is currently working with our Year 10 daughter assisting with Maths/Chemistry. Geoffrey is a professional, reliable/punctual tutor who presents clearly/patiently (going the extra mile). Geoffrey is a friendly / happy smiley character. Our daughter is very happy. We highly recommend Geoffrey for both Chemistry/Maths.
Unfortunately, my daughter only had one lesson with Geoffrey because teachers at her school became available to give her extra tuition.
However, Geoffrey was prompt at replying to emails and arrived to the lesson on time. The lesson he gave was excellent
My son needed a little extra help and has found Geoffrey to be perfect, extremely able and with clear explanations and a plan to tackle problem areas and push on to new heights.
Geoffrey is a calm and knowledgeable teacher who explains everything very clearly, and doesn`t mind repeating himself as many times as you need for the information to sink in.
He has a good knowledge of different specs and is prepared with all the relevant resources every lesson.
My lessons so far have been informative and helpful, I hope to continue to learn from him in the future.
Geoffrey is a very friendly and patient tutor, who explains concepts clearly, and has shared some useful tips and tricks.
Both my children enjoy their sessions and both have praised him for his patience, understanding and style of communication in tutoring GCSE chemistry and physics
Excellent, provided my son with confidence and ability to tackle his work.
Thank you. I have a good teacher in Chemistry. I am very happy.
Early days as only a couple of lessons but my daughter is very happy having topics clearly explained and is eager to continue with Geoffrey. (She is the type of individual who would quickly but politely say if she felt she was not benefitting as she very much wants to do well in her A level Chemistry). Geoffrey has also been extremely accommodating with fitting her in at odd times as currently her timetable is not fixed and time keeping brilliant. Lessons start when they are scheduled.
Approachable and efficient.,
