Information about George
I studied Mathematics at Cambridge University at both undergraduate and Masters level and I am now completing a PhD in London focusing on mathematical aspects of gravity.
I started tutoring 10 years ago and have tutored every week for the previous 4 academic years with a total of 15 GCSE students, one FSMQ student, 22 A level students, 8 further maths students and 19 students I helped with their university applications and Cambridge/Oxford interviews for maths and computer science. The students had a wide range of abilities and I was able to accommodate to their various needs. I have been very lucky in that, despite not all of them enjoying mathematics, they have all been very eager to learn which has made them all a delight to teach.
A lot of people have the qualifications to teach mathematics, but the most important part of maths tuition is gauging how much the student is understanding and calibrating your examples such that they are pushed to a high standard without being overwhelmed. As well as this, it is important to be able to invent new ways of looking at things on the spot that you feel are best appropriate for how this particular student learns. I have developed these skills over my years of tutoring and have had a great deal of success with my students.
I aim to maintain a relaxed atmosphere in lessons in order to ensure the student feels comfortable enough to ask questions and most importantly say when they are not understanding something.
Availability: I prefer lessons to be booked as weekly/fortnightly recurring slots, though students may enquire if they wish to have ad hoc lessons e.g. to prepare for an exam.

Feedback For George (11)
We are very impressed . He has real dedication to teaching and is able to inspire our son to improve and achieve his true potential. He is very friendly and is able to put the student at ease. I would highly recommend Mr George.
George is so amazing! My son is so pleased to have found George as his tutor. George is so talented and able to explain everything clearly and make things to understand. Highly recommend George.
An absolute Gem!!! George has really clcked with my son. During a time when their schooling has missed out great chunks he has amanged to get him on board and back on focus. I would totally recommend him for anyone who excels at maths and who doesn`t excel but wants to ensure their child gets the grades to move on to the next step in their education. I know that as soon as my daughter is in needing of tuition, I will be hoping he has a free slot
my son has been having regular lessons and loving it!
my son enjoys his lesson, is great tutor, highly recommend.
George is very flexible and my daughter has enjoyed her lessons with George.
George has outstanding knowledge in maths and physics. He is helping my daughter understand the subjects in great depth for GCSEs. He is a brilliant teacher.
Just started out tuition. George is clearly doing an excellent job as our 13 year old is (almost) happy to do 2 hours of Maths every Sunday. Bravo George!
George is very prompt with communications and is punctual. My son is finding him very good at helping with his A level maths.
My son seems to be getting on well with George and he explains everything clearly. So we will be sticking with George up until A level exams
