I am a very caring and supportive teacher. I believe in a close working relationship between the child, the tutor and their parents. Learning should be enjoyable, fun and satisfying.

This can be a short or long term programme of support, a confidence boost or a more structured programme of learning.

I can also offer experienced and independent advice about your child`s school and the education system to help you make the most of your child`s one chance to succeed.
Feedback For Warwick (17)
Excellent tutor. Very experienced. My son liked him enormously.
Warwick has now been tutoring our son once a week for a month and the impact in his progress at school is already starting to show. Warwick builds a. Rapport from session one and is warm and professional at all times....according to our son he is also quite funny! Warwick prepares thoroughly for each session with resources bespoke to the learning gaps identified in the initial session. Additional work is provided through the week and assessed by Warwick prior to the next session which allows time for feedback to be considered. Our son happily attends each session and most importantly is growing in confidence as a result.
Warwick is an excellent tutor: He really knows how to help students and how to motivate them. He is patient, but at the same time my son felt positively challenged and developed confidence that improved his studies significantly.
Warwick is an outstanding tutor, our daughter took to Warwick from the first lesson and genuinely looks forward to each session. Warwicks knowledge of the 11 plus is second to none. I would recommend Warwick without hesitation.
Warwick provided my Year 6 son with several weekly sessions to help prepare for the 11+ exam, due to Covid-19 this was all undertaken via Zoom. All interactions have been very positive, professional and friendly. My son enjoys the sessions and would happily continue his tuition. Warwick took care to assess strengths and weaknesses and quickly established a great rapport. He has an effective teaching style and is engaging enough for it to seem like fun! We will certainly be in touch again if we need any more support. Thank you!
We cant rate Warwick highly enough. He has been tutoring our son for the past year in preparation for the 11+. When Warwick started with us he undertook a comprehensive review of my sons capabilities and created a tailored programme to address his specific learning needs/gaps. Warwicks friendly and relaxed manner and his ability to listen immediately put my son at ease which resulted in productive sessions that never once felt arduous. My son has made excellent progress and his confidence has also come on leaps and bounds which is pure testament to Warwicks natural teaching abilities.
Warwick`s is very organised and invites the opinions of me and my son in his planning. His calm manner, good humour and patience in explaining has given my son the confidence he needed to tackle maths. Thank you, Warwick.
A very engaging and experienced tutor, highly recommended.
Warwick is an excellent teacher! Indeed, I say this in a professional capacity because I am a teacher myself. Due to issues pertaining to time, I am unable to teach my child. As a replacement, I was looking for a highly-skilled, experienced, and professional teacher. Having worked with Warwick since July 2019, I am very pleased to say that he meets all these criteria. Furthermore, his knowledge of the requirements of the eleven plus exam is extensive.
I would recommend Warwick wholeheartedly to any parent looking for a tutor for their child in the Coventry, Rugby, Nuneaton, or Leamington area.
Warwick immediately built a rapport with my son, putting him at ease and finding common ground. His calm manner and empathy whilst tutoring is exactly what I`d hoped for.
Great tutor with lots of experience. Makes detailed initial assessment so targets areas of need.
Warwick is always professional, yet approachable and flexible, with a great sense of humour. My son has really enjoyed the lessons and has found them very helpful, as he feels that Warwick has extensive subject knowledge that he imparts in an accessible way, and that he gives him tailored support and provides a variety of extra materials. I am very happy with my son`s progress so far in his History A level.
We are pleased with Warwick. My son adapted to his style of teaching quite quickly. He had a wonderful lesson and my children all liked him. Win, win from all angles. Can not wait to watch my son develop.
Warwick is an excellent tutor. He is knowledgeable, reliable and very committed, always willing to go the extra mile. His friendly manner puts my daughter at ease, she now feels more confident and is making good progress.
An experienced and knowledgeable teacher. Has really put my son at ease and helped him to enjoy his history. Highly recommended! Warwick has also supported my nephew at undergraduate level in analysing primary sources. My nephew thoroughly enjoyed working with Warwick and got an excellent mark in his assignment. Warwick is extremely well prepared, is very engaging and sets homework which is rigorously marked. I do not hesitate to recommend Warwick.
Excellent knowledge and friendly approach. A very efficient and experienced teacher who can tailor lessons to the different needs and learning styles of the learners.
