Information about Nicky

I am a graduate from the University of St Andrews with an MA in Ancient History. I have experience tutoring both on a one-to-one level as well as tutoring small groups.

I previously worked as a tutor for three years on a part-time basis and have tutored full-time since the 2012-2013 academic year.

I have an excellent proven track record with most of my students achieving A grades and no student having achieved lower than a B grade. This includes working with students who were initially predicted D/E grades by their schools. I also offer both school entrance exam prep and prep for the eleven plus.

I have helped students gain admission to competitive Independent and Grammar Schools across London at 7 and 11 plus entry.

My hourly fee is very competitive based upon my results and experience.

Availability: I am fairly flexible on availability and will be happy to consider your request provided I am not already committed.

After School

Willing to travel: 50 miles

Experience: I am well educated and have a very strong knowledge of my subjects as well as excellent communication skills.

I have worked in the Kumon Mathematics programme as a group tutor, in a primary school in Fife as a visiting Latin tutor (whilst at University), and have written a number of e-books on various topics.

I am able to offer tuition in all specifications and for all exam boards in my subjects. I have experience of tutoring age groups from seven upwards.

I am experienced assisting younger students with all aspects of Entrance Exams: English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

Nicky is a well knowledgable tutor when it comes to anything between examination boards to the level of learning ( GCSE A LEVEL) i would highly recommend if you are struggling or lost in your academic studies as Nicky is up to date.

Nicky has begun helping my Daughter for an intensive revision and exam prep for her A levels in English, Politics and Classical Civilisation this Easter holidays. He is patient, positive and knowledgeable. My Daughter is finding the sessions useful and we are really pleased he is able to give us such continuity and is helping her.

Nicky is always on time for his sessions and my daughter finds his help very useful and informative. We have asked for his help with quite a specific piece of history coursework and his knowledge of the subject is excellent.

Tutors Response :

Isabelle is a very well-versed student with a very good subject knowledge. She is very focused and her vocabulary is very advanced. I would highly recommend Isabelle as a potential tutee.

Grace (Mrs)

Not worth the money very disappointing

Tutors Response :

It is very unfortunate that Grace felt this way because whilst I was holding the session and afterwards when I related brief feedback on the session and what was covered she seemed pleased. I was asked to tutor for the Common Entrance Exam for admission in one years time. It was explained to me before the session that one of the first things to be worked on was English as this was an area which needed initial focus. Therefore for the first one hour session I assessed Grace`s sons current comprehension and worked through part of a specimen Common Entrance English paper with him. This included reading through part of an extract with him, helping him to look at the important elements in each segment, compiling a list of difficult vocabulary and providing explanations of alternative definitions for those words, then working through the specific questions explaining the ways in which to maximise the available marks by covering enough points required according to the attribution of marks. For a one hour session I don`t really feel in the first instalment much more could really be covered. And this is bearing in mind that my initial instructions were to work on consolidating and improving English proficiency before moving on to further work. At the end of the session I went through with Grace what had been covered in the session briefly and then contacted her later to communicate my assessment of the first session. Therefore I feel as though I ran an initial session as in depth and thorough as anyone would reasonably expect. It is disappointing therefore to be awarded such an unfair feedback score which neither reflects the session or any of my previous feedback from other tutees

Nicky has helped my son not only with the subject but with exam technique and how to answer essays. He has come on leaps and bounds since he started with us.

Nicky is a very helpful tutor and I would highly recommend him. He is extremely knowledgeable and has helped me with the understanding of the History course. He has also assisted me with structuring essays for my exams.

Tutors Response :

Jessica is a thoughtful and knowledgeable student who is developing her analytical skills. She is polite and works on all assignments set with enthusiasm.

I cannot recommend Nicky highly enough! My son has received tutoring from him for his History AS Level for the past couple of months. Nicky is an extremely conscientious and knowledgeable tutor, and he has given my son so much helpful information and confidence in the areas that he was finding quite difficult, in a way that he found so much easier to understand! My son was finding the subject quite difficult, but after spending a few weeks with Nicky he went in to his exam feeling confident. Nicky is always available throughout the week for any concerns that my son has, and as a mother I have been kept informed regarding his progress. I will definitely be continuing with his tutoring for my son`s A2 year. He has been brilliant!

Nicky was asked, at short notice, to help my daughter, who was struggling with her History AS level. He was very helpful in giving her clear advice on how to structure essays correctly in order to achieve the best possible marks. She has also found the essay structure very useful and has applied this to her other A level subjects. Nicky put in a lot of effort to help my daughter and spent numerous hours both marking essays and giving valuable feedback.

Nicky is an extremely knowledgeable and able tutor who inspired confidence in my son prior to his IB examinations. Whilst I originally hired him to teach history, Nicky showed a diverse range of skills including planning, timetabling and was further able to assist in my son`s revision in most areas. He is a tutor I would highly recommend.
