Information about Howard
I am a qualified and experienced teacher committed to enabling others to achieve their full potential through motivational coaching and teaching. I have taught Science in secondary schools in the UK and I now specialise in providing private tuition and exam preparation for individuals and small groups. I have an engaging teaching style that comes from a patient, methodical approach with clear explanations and task setting. I believe that lessons should be enjoyable, relevant and student centred where it is the student`s own efforts that creates the new learning. Above all lessons must be a positive experience that builds confidence. Students learn in different ways and methods and materials are always carefully selected with this in mind. I believe in traditional teaching methods with its emphasis on teaching the concepts that underpin a subject. Learning skills, revision and exam technique are all vital and will be taught as appropriate.I am now specialising in online tuition. i have an up to date enhanced DBS certificate

Feedback For Howard (11)
Howard has been amazing and honestly helped me so much in my understanding overall I feel a lot more confident for my exams
Excellent tutor - very prompt, reliable, knowledgeable & encouraging. Would highly recommend!
Howard has been excellent in supporting my son with his A level chemistry studies. He has an approach that my son relates to (calm and thorough), and in the month or so that he has been seeing Howard, he feels much more confident and clearer, to the point where he has been explaining aspects to his friends at school! I would have no hesitation in recommending Howard and feel lucky we found him!
Howard was a fantastic tutor for me, I struggled a lot with my confidence in chemistry but he gave me alternative ways of doing questions which I understood much better and gave me the confidence to answer questions without doubting myself. In December I got an E in my mock exam then after having lessons with Howard I got a B in April so Thank you howard!!!!!!!
I`m currently a student and I`ve been getting tutoring from Howard. Personally, I find him to be really easy to get on with and is amazing at teaching, he makes concepts very clear and his teaching is very encouraging. With Howard I`ve felt a lot more confident in my understanding of chemistry and my grades have definitely been improving.
Daughter seems to be doing well with him and seems a nice guy.He is always polite and on time. No problems or negative points.
I can sum Howard up in one word.... Brilliant
He has given my son so much more confidence and we have only been to 3 sessions up to now.
Finlay is improving day by day and he looks forward to the sessions
My daughter has chemistry A level tuition with Howard and her confidence in her ability has improved greatly. My daughter finds Howard easy to get along with and very approachable. There is already a big difference in her grades. Howard is very honest in recommending my daughter has sessions once a fortnight and not every week. Above all she is actually enjoying her chemistry lessons at school now.
He is a great tutor, no messing around , I do a level chemistry with him, and he knows his stuff. Being dyslexic I sometimes struggle understanding things, but he preservers and teaches it in a different style, would defiantly recomend, sneed you resources too
My daughter has gained so much more confidence in her own ability since starting her tutor sessions. Howard is patient, clear in his teaching and supportive. We are very happy we took this step to help her through AS level Chemistry.
Howard has given my daughter much more confidence in her knowledge of chemistry and I would definitely recommend him if your child is struggling.
