Information about Garry

Full time tutor, having successfully tutored many scores of students, of all abilities. I guarantee results. Identifying the students learning style, communicating effectively and building upon solid foundations.

As a holder of enhanced DBS certification, I have worked in many secondary schools in Cambridgeshire. Working closely with overstretched departments, and providing input, on best practice. Gaining a reputation for inspiring "disinterested" students. Very aware of "new" GCSE and "A" level specifications and exams.

Previously, I was a Forensic Scientist for 12 years, having studied marine biology and biochemistry at university, gaining a BSc(hons).
Then gaining a teaching qualification.
I am Passionate about education, general knowledge buff and most importantly Daddy to my two children.

Most importantly I know how to engage students, demonstrating that learning is fun, enjoyable and empowering. I recognise the importance of different personalities and hence learning style. I use a VARK (visual, aural, reading, and kinesthetic) system to identify and target learning style.

I want to put something back into society and what better way than empowering the next generation. I relish developing a students knowledge, in a fun and entertaining manner. The look of satisfaction on a students face that now understands is priceless.

Not the cheapest and definitely not the most expensive BUT I guarantee the best value.

Availability: Anytime, just enquire for specific availability.

Holder of enhanced DBS check certification.

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: I have successfully tutored many scores of students over the last 8 years.
At GCSE and A level I have never had a student that has not got an A or a B.

Mentoring, guiding and coaching students, in order for them to realise their ambitions is vital to me. It provides strong motivational focus for achieving those goals.
I show students how to pass exams.
Instilling excellent exam and revision techniques are at the forefront of achieving a good grade.
References are available.

I`m hugely experienced in the home education market, often receiving students that other tutors have failed to engage.

Gary has been so good for my son who dropped out of school. He was able to work out how my son could learn and gave him enthusiasm for learning. My son has learnt so much and really enjoyed his lessons.

Garry is currently supporting my son with maths revision in preparation for his GCSE. Garry has a comprehensive and thorough knowledge of the subject. He is very patient and supportive during his sessions. My son has said he finds the sessions very helpful and feels more confident with maths as a result. I would highly recommend Garry to anyone.

My daughter is buzzing and full of enthusiasm for Chemistry after a tutoring session with Garry. I`m sure it will be the same for Physics, as she has only had a few sessions so far. Garry teaches in a way that my daughter can relate to and I can`t recommend him highly enough.

Although early days, Garry has assessed my sons preferred learning style and is making good progress. I look forward to seeing the results over time.

Garry helped my son with English GCSE ready for re sit this year. Garry was very patient with my son who is dyslexic and gave him ideas and tools on how to study and revise, which was a big issue. Garry worked at a level suited for my son and pushed him when needed. Would highly recommend Garry, and although no exams results yet and I hope I won`t need to call him, but if required will def be ringing Garry to help again.

Thank you Garry for being a brilliant tutor for Lauryn and Jazinta. the girls really liked your style of teaching and explaining things they didn`t get to grips with in a classroom environment. I wouldn`t hesitate to use your services again, but I know I won`t need to because they will pass their A level with flying colours!

Garry has so far given our girl 12 one-hour sessions of tuition, half in GCSE Maths and half in IGCSE Biology. Our girl and ourselves are very happy with the way the tuition has progressed.

Garry was able to help us with this tuition at relatively short notice. We are grateful to him for his work on these sessions and for his flexibility in meeting our requirements.

Garry was a super fantastic tutor for my daughter. He built up her confidence and knowledge in the subject and as a result she received the maths GCSE grade that we were all hoping for. I can`t thank you enough Garry. Thank you for all your support and effort :))

Thanks for your kind words Viktoriya.
I wish you both all of the best for the future.

Garry has given my daughter renewed confidence in her Biology A Level and his teaching is complimenting the school teaching really well and any knowledge gaps are being bridged. Would definitely recommend Garry.

Very good, very confident and with a good manner. Garry finds your weak areas and explains everything very clearly until you grasp things. If you have a quick question he is also happy for you to send a text or an email.

I would recommend Gary to anyone without any doubt.

Very impressed with Garry, he has been tutoring my son in Chemistry at GCSE level for one month. He took the trouble to understand how my son learns and adapted his approach to suit. My son is enthusiastic about which topic he has conquered after his hourly, weekly session (that is saying something from a 16 year old).

My daughter was extremely nervous about having a tutor for Maths but Garry is friendly and has put her at ease by explaining things clearly that she can`t quite crasp. She said he doesn`t make me feel stupid when I get something wrong like they do at school. My daughter is happy and doing well which is all I wanted for her. Someone to help her through her GCSE which hopefully Garry will.
