Information about Harry
This is my sixth year formally tutoring via this site but I have tutored informally for a number of years. I really enjoy tutoring - I love the subject and I love making a difference to my students! It is an exciting time for me at the moment - it`s the middle of March and my students (1 GCSE, 7 AS and 1 A2) are fast approaching their exams. I am looking forward to the good news on results day! But there is obviously a lot of work to do between now and then
I think I now prefer tutoring at A level, having initially specialised in GCSE.
My approach to tutoring focuses on the exams (past papers etc) because that is the objective - to do as well in the exams as possible. But it would start with an assessment of where the student is - their strengths and weaknesses, how they learn etc. The key then is to put together a plan for the individual and then monitor progress against the plan.
Availability: I generally tutor during the week, any time from say 4pm to 8pm.
I am available during the day as well if that is more convenient.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have a wealth of experience in learning/teaching/mentoring gained in nearly 35 years as a Government Statistician. I have a lot of experience in lecturing/presentations and communicating difficult concepts in a way that aids understanding. I have even presented key Government statistics live on television! I also regularly coached/mentored members of my team through the in-house statistical training course (GCSE/A level).
I have also tutored informally outside work over the years, with my own children and numerous friends and colleagues. I started tutoring more formally when I retired 6 years ago.
Feedback For Harry (16)
Harry was very responsive to my request and after 2 sessions my daughter was very pleased with his help. Unfortunately the lockdown has stopped any further sessions.
Very knowledgeable and supportive, early days but has helped my daughter enormously
Very polite, always on time very thorough with all aspects that are needed. My daughters confidence is building again in A level maths thank you
Highly recommended.My son is currently having lessons with Harry and his confidence and understanding has increased considerably.
Great tutor, helped my son achieve his potential in his A level maths. Reliable, motivated and approachable.
Harry has helped my son with his A Level maths and he has been very helpful. Harry has a great personality and puts my son at ease and works well with him on agreeing what they will cover. Harry has gone out of his way to work with us on dates and times. I would definitely recommend him.
Good progress and built up rapport with my son quickly
Josh has found Harry`s informal style of teaching to be very helpful and informative as he prepares to retake C1 C2 C3 and C4 this summer. I have let Josh liaise with Harry to arrange what areas of study he wanted to concentrate on and would thoroughly recommend Harry as a tutor.
Excellent tutor who is very professional and punctual and knows his job very well.
What a lovely guy. Would definitely recommend Harry.
Very happy, he is an excellent tutor. My son has been having lessons for the past couple of weeks and they have built a really good rapport.
Harry is really lovely, very friendly and approachable. He`s incredibly calm, listens well and can break things down well. He was very kind to me and I would recommend.
Fantastic tutor! Harry helped me with GCSE and A level maths for an entry exam (which I`ve just passed!) and nothing was ever to much trouble. I`ve always struggled with maths, failing in school at GCSE level but Harry has a great way of explaining things and at times when I couldnt get my head around something, he would find another way to explain the concept.
My only regret is not having him there years ago when I was sitting my GCSEs.
Harry is an excellent tutor. He helped me through my A2 year of Maths (C2, C3, C4, S2). I would recommend him to anyone! His great teaching style and excellent notes made me feel 100% prepared for the exams I sat! Absolutely excellent!!
Needed a tutor for my year 10 son. Harry is very patient and my son enjoys his style of teaching. Would recommend.
Lovely gentleman who has made my 14 year old boy feel comfortable and relaxed while learning.
