Very kind and good at explaining answers

Ceri (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

Very passionate and astonishingly well prepared with a host of resources. He always helped exactly where needed but by talking it through rather than just telling daughter the answer.

Clair (Ms)

Simon is an excellent tutor - currently helping with A level Biology. He is very thorough and prepares a lot of helpful supporting material.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind comments, Clair. The important thing is for Katie to make use of the resources to improve her understanding. There is evidence that she`s doing that, but she must sustain that effort. Simon

We were lucky to have found Simon through the Tutor Hunt! Having received quite poor predicted A Level grades in AS we were looking for a tutor who will not only help prepare for the final exam in Biology but, most importantly, be able to make the change in the attitude towards the subject and make the revision process effective as well as interesting. My son had weekly classes with Simon for the entire final year at school (he just finished his A level exams this June). Since he started his lessons with Simon, we could immediately see the transformation not only in the grades but in his approach to the subject - he was so keen to learn and prepare for the next lesson! Our son`s school teachers (he is in one of the top 5 private schools in the UK) were also quick to notice the change and immediate improvement in the attitude towards and quality of homework. Simon has some fantastic learning resources: videos as well as printed materials. He is super organised, uses the lesson time efficiently and always assigns plenty of homework to do for the next lesson. We can`t wait for the Biology exam results to come through on 16 August! My son says he found the exams easy as he new exactly what he needed to do - he had lots of practice with Simon to prepare! I would thoroughly recommend Simon to any anxious parent like me who is going through the A level exam nightmare!

Simon is a great Tutor. Simon`s question based approach to teaching is a very good strategy to make a student well prepared for the exams with thorough knowledge.
