Information about Greg

I am passionate about my subjects.

My motto is "Enjoy, Understand, Retain and Apply.” I like to use interesting material, props and visuals to make problems as engaging and tangible as possible.

I am told that I am very approachable and tutor in a way that enables students to feel at ease and learn rapidly. I work quickly through topics that a student finds easy to grasp, but I also have the patience to explain points many times from many perspectives when required.

In Science I often begin with an engaging overview, from inside the atom to beyond the universe, giving an understanding of how all the topics fit together.

In Maths I tend to tackle the more challenging topics on a level that is easy to access and then progress in manageable steps to an advanced level, which then remains within reach. I keep a note of the particular topics that a student finds difficult to retain and ensure that those are kept fresh in their memory. As the exams approach we include careful attention to exam technique.

In English I help students to use sound linguistic techniques and impeccable language, and equip them to obtain outstanding marks by finding deep insights into poetry/prose and adding that “something extra” into original writing.

I can go through a complete tour of the syllabus and identify the gaps to be remedied. Alternatively, I can either use set homework as a framework, or give a head start in topics about to be covered in class, or explain topics that were hard to follow at school. It can be difficult for a pupil to stop a class in order ask for difficult points to be re-explained, but in a one-to-one session I can give individual attention and go at exactly the pace needed.

Availability: Tutoring is my sole livelihood. I work weekdays from 3-9pm and throughout the day on Saturdays. If requested I can also provide some daytime sessions.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I am enhanced DBS-checked, subscribe to the up-to-the minute Update Service and qualified to Honours Degree level. I have references from students, parents and teachers.

DBS (CRB) Check: Yes

Hello Greg,
I just wanted to let you know that Harry passed his Maths GCSE. He couldn`t have done it without you and all the extra support you gave him, especially after his accident. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone I know looking for an excellent tutor.
Many thanks from all of us.

Greg has been tutoring our `I don`t need a tutor, I know how to do it` 15-year-old. Our son has been surprised at how simply Greg has explained difficult concepts and made clear parts of maths that our son thought he knew! Highly recommended.

Greg has been tutoring my daughter in her GCSE years from early 2017. She is , as any 15 year old , not easy to impress however she rates Greg very highly and is very keen on the tutoring sessions. In particular the feedback from her is that Greg explains things very clearly and ensures understanding for each topic. The results are impressive, my daughter is now regularly at the top of her year in all of her tutored subjects. I would recommend Greg to anyone of any level. It is time well invested.
