Information about Terry
I am available to support students through the difficult weeks and months ahead through online tutorials, helping them to fill the gaps in their knowledge that have arisen because of the Covid-19 crisis, and to guide them through the final stages of their coursework given that it will now form a very big part of the grade their school awards them.
I have twenty six years experience of teaching GCSE and A level geography in the north of England and London, the majority of these as head of department. Over the last five years I have tutored a wide variety of students across London, with the primary aim in each case being a significant and lasting improvement in exam and coursework results, particularly where there are gaps or weaknesses in knowledge.
My particular expertise lies in fine-tuning a students` exam technique ( I have also worked as an examiner), using exam papers, exemplar answers and mark schemes to inform progress and affecting the quality of written answers, especially longer, essay-style ones.
I am able to deliver across all A level and GCSE geography specifications, including online sessions if preferred, using Zoom, Skype or all other platforms. I am also happy to deliver to small groups of students in the same way.
Availability: Available now. Hours unlimited.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: Twenty six years experience in secondary education as a teacher and head of department in Geography. I have tutored extensively throughout this time, specialising in A level in recent years and expert in all current specifications.
I currently also work as a Pathway Tutor for the TES Institute in Holborn, preparing unqualified teachers for QTS and assessing candidates at the end of their programmes.

Terry was reliable and professional.My daughter found his A level sessions clear, helpful and well-planned. He had a good knowledge of the exam system. He responded quickly on email. Thanks Terry!
A-level geography is now over. Our son says he was so glad to have Terry as a tutor, and "he really knew about the papers and questions."
Terry built our son`s confidence and ability and they seemed to have really stimulating discussions.
Terry wood is an exceptional and inspirational tutor and we highly, highly recommend him. He is professional, reliable and an excellent teacher. My son said he had learnt more in just one session than he had in months at school.
Very good Geography tutor, had him for a couple of sessions now and already feel much more confident in my abilities. Very good, kind man and brilliant teacher.
Terry is everything we could want from an experienced teacher. He knows the subject, the system, how to help our teenager get work done and learn.
A great tutor who explains things clearly and is very helpful
Terry is very responsive and helpful.
Terry is a brilliant Tutor. He engaged immediately with my daughter and is passionate and very knowledgable about his subject. He explains in detail and in a way that makes her understand the topics.
A very good tutor.
He was brilliant. I only wish Id found him earlier.
My son is in his first year of an A level in Geography. He has been tutored by Terry for about a month. Terry is always on time, communicates well and most importantly has been able to explain to my son how best to tackle questions and the information required. It is clear Terry has a good understanding of his subject and what is required from the A level syllabus and the exams.
Terry is an excellent and highly knowledgable tutor with many years of teaching and examining experience. We were lucky that he accepted to help my daughter as he was fully booked till the exam times and has helped her enormously in the last few weeks. He is very engaging and interactive in his teaching, making sure to fill gaps in knowledge that is already there and expand it with the best advise on the structure of exam writing as well as the content.
My daughter loves her lessons with Terry and is always surprised how quickly her 2 hour slot goes. She feels energised and motivated after her lessons and I think it is due to confidence she gains each time she works with Terry.
By complete coincidence he is teaching a close friends daughter and they are extremely complimentary about Terrys teaching and their daughters progress.
I highly recommend Terry to any prospective students and our only regret is not finding him earlier.
I contacted Terry for my son who is dyslexic and doing his GCSE`s as he was in dire need of tutoring to help him get good grades. I was very impressed with Terry as was my son. We will be using Terry on a regular basis. What stood out for me was the fact that he was a school teacher prior to retiring so had a good grip of what is required. Highly recommended.
