Information about Nick

I have a masters degree in physics from Oxford University, and am also a qualified teacher.

I tutor maths, physics and chemistry and also have substantial experience of working with young people preparing for secondary school transfer/11+.

My approach is to gain a detailed understanding of the pupil`s needs, capabilities and aspirations, and then always to teach in a way tailored to the individual.

I know from experience that everyone is academically capable - especially at maths!

I also worked for many years as a senior accountant and business adviser both in London and the U.S. - so I have a broad perspective which can be useful to the pupil.

Mr Pat O`Sullivan:

“I was his Headmaster in Kenya some years ago. Nick was highly motivated, skilled and dedicated. He was generous with his time and was able to relate with students and staff in an culture that was new to him. He is a good team person and he brings joy and enthusiasm to his work. I am confident he will give excellent service.”

Mr Noel Kirby:

“Nick tutored our son in maths for his GCSE`s. Our son went from failing maths to getting a B grade. Nick`s commitment to him and his belief in his ability gave him much more confidence especially as he is not a natural mathematician. Nick kept us informed of our son`s progress regularly and if there were issues of motivation he would discuss them with us. Nick`s knowledge of his subject is excellent but more importantly he is enthusiastic about helping children learn and he is patient. Our son was very happy having Nick as a tutor and we were delighted with his results.”

Availability: Weekday evenings from 4pm.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have taught in secondary schools both in the UK and overseas, and also have considerable experience as a tutor.

Very Dissappointed with this Tutor. He seemed drunk when we called me late one evening, but gave him benefit of doubt and arranged a session for my son. On arriving my son felt frightend as his behaviour seemed strange and odd, and then realised he was drunk again so we left within 10 minutes of being there. Very un-professional and traumatic experience for my son.
Would have liked to put no stars on rating but options wouldnt allow. Not recommended at all.

Tutors Response :

I have subsequently spoken to Tutorhunt who have asked me to write a gentle reply to this traducing. Anyone visiting my profile will see that this comment is completely at variance with all my other feedback.

I am so glad we found Nick. A very personable man and has managed even in a short time to get on a level with my 14 year old son. My son comes out his lesson buzzing and full of confidence. I know he is going to do really well. Thank you Nick.

Tutors Response :

Be careful Julie - you will give me a reputation!

with Nick`s tuition my son was enabled to achieve a higher grade than predicted in Maths. My son enjoyed his sessions with Nick and we would recommend him to anyone seeking Maths tuition for their child.
