I`m a retired teacher with 35 years` successful experience of teaching in different settings. I`m a good communicator, patient, reliable and able to work hard to help students be as successful as they can be, as long as they are prepared to work hard, too! Students find me approachable, helpful, sympathetic and able, when necessary, to "go the extra mile" for them.

review(s) for Peter.
Peter tutored my daughter for several months prior to her English GSCE`s. His enthusiasm, passion and energy for his subject area is really inspiring and certainly helped her to develop and grow her skill set. She really enjoyed her lesson`s and time with Peter - the right level of pushing her and making the lessons engaging! Thank you Peter.
Tutors Response :
Thanks for your kind feedback, Jill. Mia was a real pleasure to work with, and I am delighted to hear that she got something out of it. Best wishes, Peter
I have been very pleased with Peter. His knowledge of German and his teaching skills are excellent. He is always punctual and well prepared, and very flexible, which is what I need, as my work commitments vary. I would strongly recommend.
Fantastic tutor. Really helpful, friendly and reliable. Helps a great deal with work outside of the lesson hours too. Would strongly recommend Peter.
