Information about Peter

I graduated from Queen Mary College, University of London, with a First-Class Honours Degree in Chemistry. Since then I have had a number of roles in industry, initially in R&D and Technical Services and most recently in Product Management and Marketing. Throughout my working career I have trained and supported countless customers, and have also supported those around me in developing their professional careers. As part of my professional career I became a Member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (MCIM) through sitting the CIM examinations and through working as a Senior Marketing Manager for many years.

I recently worked part-time with a science outreach company, where we were passionate in bringing science to life for children aged 5-11 years, through hands-on science activities delivered through science parties and holiday science camps.

I started tutoring in April 2019 and am currently helping many students across GCSE and A level studies.

As a person I am positive, supportive, enthusiastic and highly motivated.

Outside of work I volunteer for the National Trust, where I love sharing the stories of a wonderful Georgian mansion with the visitors. I tour National Trust sites with my wife in our old campervan called Mel. I also have a passion for music and love playing the guitar.

Availability: To check for my latest availability it is best to message me. I usually have slots available and can also look at my overall timetable to look to see if slots can be jiggled about to meet with a client`s needs. In general I plan my sessions as follows:

- Daytimes: 9:00am - 3:30pm: students who are available during the daytime, such as those who are home-schooled or those who are studying A-level chemistry who have free periods during the daytime.
- Evening slots: 4:00pm - 9:00pm: students within KS4 and KS5.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: Successful tutoring is all about understanding the specific needs and requirements of each individual student. As individuals we need support that is tailored to our needs in order to maximise our success.

I understand that individuals have different approaches to learning and that they come with a portfolio of personal skills and traits. I also understand that confidence and positivity are key to achieving success. So, whilst the academic aspects are important, I balance this with supporting the personal development of each individual. Typical areas that I address with personal development include confidence, ‘learning how to learn’, problem solving techniques, excellence versus perfectionism and exam techniques.

For me learning has to be fun and it has to be relevant. It needs to bring challenges and it needs to bring successes.

I work hard to support all of my students and proactively encourage them to use me as their aide and mentor. I reach out to all of my students to instil confidence, and through positive encouragement I motivate and empowerment them to achieve excellence.

I have a broad base of experience in working with students with learning difficulties including ADHD, Asperger, Autism, Dyscalculia, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. Key to working with such students is the importance of developing tailored learning strategies, approaches and resources that best help these students develop.

Peter was friendly and organised. He helped my daughter to gain confidence with a chemistry project she was struggling with.

Tutors Response :

Kate`s daughter was studying for the extended Btec diploma in applied science. This was a short-term tutoring project to offer advice on her daughter`s project assessment where we met for a small number of clinic-style sessions.

Peter was a very helpful and capable teacher. When tutoring me on areas from the first part of my Chemistry degree course, he was very well-prepared and well organised. He explains topics in a way that is easy to understand, and did not make me feel incompetent when I asked questions. Would definitely recommend him!

Peter helped my daughter tremendously in chemistry, she was borderline failing chemistry in year twelve, and coming out of year 13, she got what she needed for university. He carefully plans lessons around the students needs and struggles in certain topics , and was sometimes willing to go beyond syllabus to help my daughter deepen her chemistry understanding. He is very reliable, and supportive.

Peter tutored my daughter for a few months leading up to her Chemistry A levels. His communication, flexibility and teaching methods worked to boost my daughters knowledge and confidence. Prior to Peter`s lessons she had almost lost hope and confidence in herself to even tackle exams, due to lack of support and stability of teaching staff at school, but has now achieved her Chemistry Alevel. My only regret is that we didn`t find him sooner!

Peter has been an exceptional tutor for my Daughter for the past 18 months, studying for her Chemistry A level. She started his sessions lacking confidence in her ability to grasp the subject. Within a few sessions her confidence and comprehension increased substantially. Peter is an excellent communicator and, has the patience and ability to clearly help and guide his students to understand and comprehend the various modules covered. He is thorough and meticulous, both in his preparation and delivery. He is always cheerful and engaging and his weekly 1-2-1 sessions have been invaluable to my Daughter.

Peter is an organised tutor who knows his stuff. He keeps detailed notes which have proven to be very helpful during my time studying A level chemistry. However, I have found that a lot of time does get wasted in lessons as irrelevant conversations often arise. A good tutor nonetheless who has helped me improve.

Tutors Response :

Ellis was a student who came to me April 2023 wanting help with her preparations for the 2023 examinations. With such a limited time remaining between the commencement of her tutoring and her examinations we opted to have two sessions per week, with me giving up my Saturday evenings to support one of these sessions.

A key part of my tutoring is associated with personal development - looking at areas such as examination techniques, time management, problem solving techniques confidence, motivation, stress and anxiety. I believe it is a key part of my role as a professional tutor to encompass this as part of my tutoring programmes. A key part of this is also to develop a rapport with each student and to use this to understand such elements of personal development that they need help with. I can only assume that this is what Ellis is referring to as the `wasted time` but would like to point out that it would certainly not have been excessive or wasted time at all. In fact, quite the contrary. If you read my other reviews, you will see how this part of the tutoring programme is welcomed by my students. As such, I am sorry that she felt this way. I would have preferred that Ellis would have raised this as a concern at the time, as this would have enabled us to talk this through.

On the positive side of things, let`s look at what we achieved in literally a handful of weeks:

Inside sessions we got through a great many topics including the following - year 13 chemical kinetics; acids, bases and buffers; lattice enthalpy and Born Haber cycles; enthalpies of solution and hydration; electrochemistry and storage cells; transition metal chemistry; free-radical substitution reactions; electrophilic addiition reactions; nucleophilic addition reactions; amino acids; optical isomerism; addition and condensation polymerisation; 1H and 13C nmr spectroscopy; bond enthalpies.

Often sessions would run over the normal hour length as there were topics we wanted to complete or questions we wanted to answer. Where this was feasible, on account of the closeness of the examinations I had no issue with doing this. I also sent screenshots of my `scribblings` made during a session for additional reference purposes.

Outside of the sessions I provided Ellis with resources including on the reactions of acyl chlorides, organic bases, carbocations, redox equilibria, balancing and writing ionic equations, electrochemistry, buffer action, pH and weak acids, first and successive ionisation energies.

In the run up to the examinations in 2023 Ellis, as with all of my year 13 students, Ellis received a daily WhatsApp revision blast with syllabus tips and examination tips which ran from the beginning of April to the date of the last examination.

As with all of my year 13 students I also supported Ellis both within and between sessions with a good number examination questions providing her with my answers to support the development of her examination technique. Ellis was a proactive student who often sent me queries via WhatsApp which I always took time to reply to, typically in the same working day.

Ellis was a dedicated student and I do wish her all the best with her forthcoming result.

Peter has been an incredible tutor for me, helping me to get from an E grade at the end of year 12 with very low confidence and low motivation to a predicted A grade in year 13. Peter helped me initially by aiding me to find my weak spots by providing me with access to a variety of resources and recommending many different skills for learning and revision which I had not been able to obtain during GCSE’s due to disruption. Peter has also been amazing as a guide and very accommodating to personal circumstances, and always very approachable and supportive, which was vital for me in regaining confidence and motivation with regards to all of my subjects, not just chemistry. Peter teaches in an organised and professional way, detailing the learning objectives for next lesson in an email almost immediately after which contains the topics and questions covered in the session, as well as attaching information, questions and PowerPoints explaining the plan for the next session. This was very helpful as it allowed me both familiarise myself before a session and independently consolidate afterwards. As well as this, Peter is very knowledgeable in a variety of areas of chemistry, giving me a lot of additional helpful information which aided me in answering abstract questions and applying my learned knowledge to unfamiliar scenarios and awkward questions, improving my problem solving ability. This helped me become more confident and comfortable with a subject I found very difficult to keep up with. He is extremely helpful and always goes above and beyond to ensure I understand difficult topics, as well as helping me keep up with the fast pace of A Level subjects by encouraging and setting independent practice. He also supports work set in school with tips and explanations for questions I couldn’t answer or understand. I would strongly recommend Peter to any student, or parent of student struggling with chemistry!

Peter has been an excellent Tutor for my son. My son was really struggling with understanding Chemistry A level. Peter provided a comprehensive program to cover the areas he was unsure of. He also sent him all the relevant information he required in regards to the subject and the exams. He taught him in a structured and professional way, detailing before hand the information he was going to cover in each lesson and also giving my son lots of information to cover away from lesson. He is a kind and approachable person which is important when picking a Tutor and he certainly knows his subject. My son has now taken his exams and Peter`s work gave him confidence. I would highly recommend Peter to any student wanting help with Chemistry.

Peter is an amazing tutor, who helped me improve from a D/E in year 12 to A grades in year 13. He massively increased my confidence in Chemistry and we were able to get through the specification more quickly than at school, meaning I often went into class already knowing the content. This meant that in the months leading up to A Levels we were able to focus lessons on my weak areas, which I found very helpful. Without Peter I wouldn’t have the predicted grades needed to get a Medicine offer. I would highly recommend Peter as a tutor.

We`d like to thank Peter for making such a difference to our son`s chemistry lessons. His whole manner of dealing with chemistry as a whole has been transformed under Peter`s guidance and his confidence has soared due to the one-one engagement. Not only has Peter massively contributed to his understanding of the subject but has also been a huge help in building his ability to tackle questions in a calm and practical manner. My son was actually looking forward to sitting his first paper instead of being terrified of it! The extra tuition easily became part of my son`s revision timetable and I would definitely recommend Peter to anyone looking for an A-level chemistry tutor.

Peter has been tutoring my son and supporting him in the run up to his A Levels. My son needs a high grade in Chemistry in order to access the course that he wishes to study at university. Peter`s support has been very focused and thorough. He has emailed my son a multitude of helpful resources in between his weekly tutoring sessions which my son has found very helpful. My initial reservation about on-line tutoring was quickly dispelled as Peter has a very cheerful and encouraging disposition which translates well online. It is also a much more practical option for parents and students when trying to squeeze sessions in amongst other activities. My son came out of each tutoring session with Peter very motivated. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Peter as a Tutor of Chemistry.

Pete is an absolute star. He`s not only a great Chemistry Tutor, but he`s really increasing my daughter`s confidence. He`s a really lovely man, and the lessons themselves are fun (according to her! ) But I`m also hugely impressed with the amount of preparatory work he does, and shares in advance, and with the detailed follow up to each class. He goes above and beyond what I expected for an hour`s tuition, and I`m sure it will have a real impact on her GCSE Grades. Thank you Pete!

Peter has not just offered tailored lessons but also sent the curriculum element and learning objectives for each week, has sent the report on what have been achieved, and what will be covered next week ahead. Before weekly sessions the student has received the resources and checked work from previous week. The lessons are really well planned and structured, and the results are just amazing.

Our daughter had massive gaps in her A level Chemistry knowledge having spent nearly an entire academic year in isolation due to the Covid lockdowns. We found Peter who went above and beyond our expectations, with a wealth of knowledge and detailed preparation and feedback for each customised lesson. She revisited year 12 content alongside current year content. Our daughter gained a massive amount of confidence with Peter`s positive outlook and enthusiasm. Thank you!

Tutors Response :

Many thanks - I supported Belinda`s daughter with OCR-A A-level chemistry. We set out with an ambitious plan to cover the content of both year 12 and 13 in less than a year by having two hourly sessions per week - one dedicated to year 12 content and the other to year 13 content. A key focus here was to see the syllabus as just one entity, where we created seamless links of understanding between the various elements. At each session we embedded the knowledge and understanding using examination questions. With all tutoring it is a team effort between the tutor and student and it is testimony to Belinda`s daughter`s hard work and attention to detail that led to her gaining confidence week-on-week and becoming exam ready despite the Covid lockdowns A key part of my tutoring is to support my students not only with their knowledge/understanding of the subject, but also to look at the broader personal development elements - for example, confidence, problem solving techniques and examination techniques.

Peter is a great tutor and helped tremendous amounts throughout my A-level Chemistry course. He is very attentive to areas of the subject which I found more difficult and he was able to tailor and personalise his tutoring to this as well, with structured lessons involving both subject content with a balanced amount of exam practice. Outside of lessons, any time I needed help with a certain question or topic he was always willing to go out of his way to answer as soon as possible, being supportive and patient whilst also showing his genuine enthusiasm for the subject! His encouragement throughout my A-levels has definitely helped my self-confidence within chemistry but also in my personal life, making sure my mental well-being and sleep schedule are keeping on track as well as my school work! Peter is truly a fantastic tutor and I would recommend him to everyone :)

very helpful and takes a holistic approach to help you in multiple areas including personal improvement alongside the academic stuff, which he helps to identify your weak points. my only suggestion for improvement would be to have more structure to lesson/revision plan that gets shared with the student. overall nice tutor and would recommend if you need a helping hand and friendly face.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your feedback.

Regarding your comment - "my only suggestion for improvement would be to have more structure to lesson/revision plan that gets shared with the student", I am wondering whether you didn`t correctly receive my emails ahead of a session plan as I take great pride in providing detailed structured plans with all resources attached.

In this respect my session plans for all students contain the following information:

- Subject
- Syllabus elements
- Learning objectives
- Resources
- Additional resources
- Examination questions
- Video links

All session plans are tailored to the needs of individual students. Coupled with this my follow-up session plans always contain my feedback for the student.

If you have any specific comments regarding improvements then I would welcome these.

Peter is the BEST tutor I could have ever asked for! After a rocky start to my first year of university, I decided to turn to a tutor to help me out. Luckily I found Peter, and I am so glad that I did. Not only did I receive amazing tutoring, with personal PowerPoints made weekly for the subject I wanted to cover, explanations for every question and query I had; but I also received amazing support for me in my academic life and personal life. I can ask Peter a question at any time of the day and I will always get a response. As I am studying my first year at university, the academic work is pretty intense. But I feel as though I am covered throughout all of it and I can always get some help if I need to. I only wish I could have had this for A Level too. If you are looking for a tutor, look no further. Peter is truly the best I could have asked for.

Due to pandemic lock-down, my son withdrew himself from schooling. With the help from Peter, my son got back to learning and start building up his confidence. I am very grateful to have Peter as my son`s tutor.

We engaged Peter to help our 17 yr old son with OCR A level Chemistry. This has probably been the best decision I have made all year! Peter is extremely knowledgeable, patient, understanding, very well prepared, accessible and fun, which given he`s tutoring in Chemistry is no mean feat. Peter has uncovered some of the key weaknesses in our son`s basic understanding of concepts and is working on them so that he can move forward with more confidence. Our son has some learning difficulties with Maths and Peter has taken the pains to find the best way to explain the mathematical concepts in Chemistry in a way he can really understand. As I said, best decision of the year! Peter is an excellent tutor. Very encouraging, patient, and friendly. He makes time to answer questions and be reassuring, even outside of tutor times. Through his encouragement, reassurance and teachings, I managed to sit through my challenging OCR-A A-level chemistry papers without crying, which wouldn `t have been possible without him. I `m very grateful to have had him as my tutor.

Fantastic tutor who goes above and beyond to make the student feel comfortable and at ease, delivering an interesting, well thought out and planned lesson to perfectly give support where the student needs it most whilst covering all aspects of the curriculum. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, dedicated, professional and kind tutor.

My son was having difficulity understanding A Level Organic Chemistry so we decided to hire a tutor. Peter is a kind, understanding, patient man who explaned the subject well. My son said "He had a much better understanding of the topic since he started studing with Peter." I would definately recommend him as a tutor. Marie (Mrs)

Peter helped our twin boys in year 8 who were struggling in maths. Peter was friendly and tried hard to make our sons feel at ease. He adapted his teaching to suit their additional needs, which was much appreciated and we enjoyed our chat at the end of the sessions. We would recommend Peter without hesitation.

Peter has been a fantastic tutor to our daughter. She lost all of her confidence in maths, a subject she used to love, before she began her on-line sessions with Peter. Peter has great patience and really cares about his student`s well being and learning outcomes and has gone over and above to make maths fun and interesting as well as making tricky subjects easier to understand. My daughter has struggled with things like long division for months and yet in one session can now confidently sit down unaided to answer long division questions. My daughter also has a love of science (physics) which Peter has been encouraging too (as he also specialises in science), he finds her interesting things to read and they have a science chat at the end of their session which she really looks forwards to. The on-line content of the lessons is great. It is wonderful to see our daughters confidence in maths blossom and her enthusiasm for science deepen. The increase in her self-esteem and confidence has had a knock on effect in other subjects as well. I can`t rate Peter highly enough. Peter has been a fantastic tutor to our daughter, knowledgeable, patient, kind and supportive. She really struggled with maths and Peter helped to identify where the gaps in her knowledge were that were holding her back. This helped to build up her knowledge base. Our daughter was also struggling cognitively which Peter was very sensitive to and devised novel ways of teaching content which she previously couldn`t process. For the first time ever our daughter has reached the target expected of her in her school report which has boosted her confidence no end. We will forever be grateful to Peter for all that he has done for her and would highly recommend him as a tutor.

Peter has been brilliant with my son, who he is tutoring for A level chemistry. He is very professional, encouraging and engaging and has increased my son’s confidence with the subject after only a few lessons. Thank you for all your help Peter!
