Information about Nick

I am a former Vice Principal at one the UK`s oldest tutoring colleges`(rated Outstanding by Ofsted) and have a Doctorate from King`s College London. I have been tutoring for over eleven years now, focusing on Geography and Politics. During this time, I have taught these subjects to a wide variety of levels, from 13+ through to degree level, and examination boards (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, Pre-U), meaning that I have the experience of tutoring, subject knowledge and exam technique that many part-time tutors lack.


I have a range of interests, particularly around travel (I have been to all the continents bar Antarctica), sport (both playing and watching) and theatre. I am also currently trying to learn German (something that I struggle with!) and have entered the joys of fatherhood with a 1-year old who keeps me very busy!

Availability: Some during the summer. Currently very flexible for the new academic year, with more slots free for the retake exams in October

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have worked at one of the UK`s oldest tutoring colleges, since 2007. Starting part-time, I have been a full-time tutor since 2012.

I have taught a number of subjects during my tenure (geography, geology, government and politics, maths, SATs) to students ranging from KS3 to university level and taking into account all the major boards.

I have been an assistant examiner for OCR in Geography (GCSE and A2) which is invaluable when considering exam technique.

I have also provided advice on dissertations ranging from Bachelors to PhD level.

DBS Check: Yes

Excellent support and advice for my daughter in lead up to A’levels this summer. Can’t recommend Nick enough, wish I had found him earlier.

Nick has so far proved to be excellent. He has connected well with my daughter, been prompt and professional, and marks her work prior to the lesson so they can discuss his feedback during the session. He is very knowledgable about the school system and mark schemes etc

He hasn`t started yet so I don`t know how he is as a teacher. However, I have met Nick and he is professional and very nice.

My daughter had her first lesson and found Nick an extremely competent tutor, approachable and very helpful. She is looking forward to more fruitful leesons ahead to work towards an A* for her A levels.
Thank you, Nick.

Nick took my son on for just four sessions of AS level coaching in Geography. He was very efficient to deal with and fitted him at short notice. He had a very clear structure to the four lessons and spotted immediately how to work best with him. My son gained a huge amount from the lessons and thoroughly enjoyed them. He is passionate and engaged with his students - two great qualities for a teacher.
On the site - After I did not pick Nick straight away, I couldn`t find him again and he was by far the nearest tutor to us but I was receiving suggestions for tutors who were in East London. I didn`t find the site that easy to use but I am of a certain age.
