Information about Nigel
(********I AM DBS cleared - see screenshot of DBS update service*********)
I`m a Maths teacher with 18 years experience of teaching 11-16year olds in state education and 2 years experience teaching adults in one of Her Majesty`s prisons.
In years 7-9 my students who need regular help and a confidence boost have the reassurance that anything they struggle with in class they can crack with me outside the lesson, which massively reduces stress.
At Keystage 4 I tutor GCSE students throughout years 10 & 11, and students who only want extra help in the run up to exams. I have also helped students who are retaking Maths GCSE to pass at the second attempt.
In addition I have tutored adults who are looking to pass GCSE Maths in order to get into university or fulfil the qualification requirements of a new job.
Lastly I am available to teach home schooled students during daytime hours.
Availability: Mon - Friday 9am - 9pm
Saturday - Sunday 9am - 1pm (extra £5/hr)
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: 18 years teaching 11-16 yr olds.
2 years teaching adults in a prison.
6 years tutoring students to pass GCSE exams and to consolidate/extend learning in between - from year 5 to adults.
Feedback For Nigel (7)
Very calm , patient and positive. He is very thorough and works at the childs pace. An excellent choice if you need a maths tutor
Nigel is polite and professional and is supporting my Son with additional GCSE exam preparation.
On behalf of my daughter, thank you Nigel for making the tutoring something my daughter looks forward to. It`s not her strongest subject yet i know with your help and guidance it will be.
Always kept up to date with progress and availability.
Wouldn`t hesitate in recommending.
Nigel is just lovely- calm, encouraging and optimistic. It is very early days (only two sessions so far) but my daughter already thinks she will feel more confident about her final exams this academic year.
I cannot explain how lucky I feel to have found Nigel to tutor my Yr10 home schooled son through his GCSE`s. His knowledge, expertise and professionalism is brilliant. He has a lovely calm approach to learning/tutoring which in return delivers excellent results. He spends time away from the lessons preparing for the session so that he can teach what is needed to keep in line with the curriculum. My son thoroughly enjoys his sessions with Nigel and I can only highly recommend him.
My daughter is in the last 6 weeks of her exams and just needed an extra push with her maths she`s a very quiet and shy girl and she doesn`t take to new people very easily but she took to Nigel very easily he`s very understanding very patient willing to sit there and listen and explain and my daughter actually enjoys the hours lesson I would highly recommend Nigel my daughter even says that she is gaining from it and he brings in loads of tools to help her with a maths he is always on time I made a brilliant decision with taking on Nigel and it`s paying off so thank you very much
Nigel has been excellent working with my Year 11 son to prepare for his GCSE maths exam. His method has suited my son and I have seen his confidence grow with Nigel`s subtle encouragement. Would highly recommend
