Information about Alan
I am a Mechanical Engineer who qualified from Plymouth university with a 2:1 honours.
I have a lot of experience teaching GCSE and A-Level Mathematics and Physics and am familiar with all exam boards. My experience as a Mechanical Engineer provides me with a unique ability to teach these subjects as they are something I have studied in detail and practise daily. I have many students who I have helped achieved grade 7 or higher at GCSE and A-B level at A level.
My usual approach to tutoring is examination focused, which includes fine tuning knowledge and examination technique. I also go in depth into specific areas of subjects to improve the depth of the students knowledge where it is needed.
Both students and parents have been very happy with my approach to tutoring. I greatly enjoy the confidence my students gain after our lessons.
Availability: I am available several days/ times of the week and have a flexible schedule. Please let me know of what days and times you would prefer and I will arrange something suitable to your needs.

Feedback For Alan (8)
Alan is an excellent tutor, and I was glad when he started teaching my son. My son started his Physics GCSE lesson, he didn`t think he would catch up because of COV-19. Alan is an excellent and professional tutor, with lessons structured to my son`s needs. My son`s confidence grew really quickly, he looked forward to his lesson and extra exam work. Alan has a great personality, and I am so glad he has been my son`s tutor. I can`t thank Alan enough, my son is enjoying his Physics again. I would highly recommend Alan.
Professional & helpful
Excellent & Professional Alan has really helped my daughter with her Maths and increased her confidence. He is prepared for the lessons and and his approach his spot on. You can contact him between the lessons if you want to cover a particular module, nothing is too much hassle. My daughter will be sitting her GCSE`S next year and this is definitely the best decision I made to have Alan tutor her.
Alan is a great tutor,he is always on time and he is helping my son with maths I will recommend him
My Son has recently started receiving tutoring from Alan in IGCSE Maths. My son says that Alan explains maths concepts to him clearly and patiently, and I can see that he has become more positive about taking lessons. In his own words he tells me that Alan is "great"! My Son responds well to Alan`s verbal teaching style, and we appreciate that he emails us the papers post lesson so my Son can revisit them in his own time in written form, to check his understanding is thorough. I have found Alan to be very helpful and personable, and greatly appreciate the lesson feedback. Thanks Alan!
Alan has helped me a lot with circle theorems and several other topics that I expressed to him that I struggled with. For physics, he also helped me to understand moments and forces better. He also helped me with exam technique and time management so I`m feeling a lot more confident now and my grades have improved.
I booked with Alan last minute before my exams and I`m so happy i did so. Alan would remain on the call until iv understood all topics. The topics i struggled most on are now easier than ever and I`m so glad I got the opportunity to be tutored by Alan. I highly recommend him for all students struggling with Maths. He`s also very kind and easy to get along with.
Alan is very profesional and explained each topic really well
