Information about Simon
Very experienced and enthusiastic teacher.
An A-level examiner with AQA.
Author of A-level questions for OCR.
Also available for Online tutoring.
Former Head of Department in high achieving schools.
I love communicating Physics and Maths to students and helping them achieve their full potential. To do this I combine strong subject knowledge and clear exposition, while instilling in students the self-belief that they can do well. I`m happy to teach Physics at any level up to Oxbridge entrance, or Maths to GCSE. Both subjects can be challenging, and I understand the misconceptions that pupils may have. I combine a rigorous approach with an accessible style, responding individually to each student`s particular needs. All students come to me for different reasons, and I enjoy helping them along the road to success, while developing their own interest and ability in the subject.

Simon is an excellent tutor who has helped our daughter tremendously with her A level physics studies. He is patient, thorough and has taken a considerable amount of care and effort to ensure that his tutoring is tailored to our daughters specific needs. She really enjoys her lessons with Simon and has grown greatly in confidence due to his knowledge, skill and experience. We are very happy with Simons tutoring and intend to continue using his services.
