Information about Stuart
Coronavirus! I will be providing online tuition. Interactive lessons with a whiteboard, videos, downloadable notes and webcams. For PC, Mac, iPod and mobile. Homework set and marked for students.
A-Level / GCSE results not what you hoped for? I pride myself in being able to enthuse pupils, in maths and science. I firmly believe that a student will only achieve their full potential when they feel confident in, and are able to `enjoy`, the subject. I have worked in both education and industry.
Tutoring Approach: Sadly most `classroom based` education, through no fault of the teachers, is geared purely towards examination results, and not a basic understanding of the subject. When an understanding and enthusiasm is developed, I find that my students gain confidence and make rapid progress.
Being able to educate, support and encourage individual students is rewarding, for the tutor, and enables the student to make rapid progress.
From Jan (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Stuart is tutoring my son in GCSE Maths and more recently in GCSE Science. My son gets on very well with him and says that Stuart explains things to him in a way he finds much easier to understand. With Stuart`s help, my son has improved in both subjects and says that he feels more confident in these lessons in school as a result of Stuart`s tuition. Stuart is extremely patient and a really nice person. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.
From Lynda (5/5): (A-Level Chemistry) We are delighted with the tutoring from Stuart. He is able to relate easily, has quickly found areas where the girls need support and is very reliable. We are extremely happy with his attitude, flexibility and Input. Both girls feel supported and are enjoying the sessions. It is really interesting hearing them comment on how after having a topic explained by Stuart, they can understand it for the first time. Couldn`t be more pleased. Thanks Stuart.
From Claire (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Stuart has been tutoring our 14 year old son with his GCSE maths for about a month now. Despite our son feeling totally negative about both Maths and having a tutor, Stuart managed to very quickly build a relationship with him and already his confidence in the subject has grown. We are now getting Stuart to give our son a couple of booster sessions in Science, before his first exam. We are very happy with Stuart as a tutor and will continue to use him on a weekly basis for the duration of the GCSE`s.
From Jill (4/5): (A-Level Chemistry) Stuart has been helping Daniel for a few weeks. He has been a good communicator and is easily approachable. Daniel is gaining confidence in the subject.
From Maria (4/5): (GCSE Maths) very enthusiastic tutor, has given the students confidence in thier ability and they have said he has taught them maths in a way they can understand. Excellent time keeping. Very happy so far. Maria
From Julie (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Stuart gave both the boys (Oli Year 10 and Alex Year 8) a maths taster session. They both enjoyed it and immediately felt they would benefit a great deal from Stuart`s approach. Even after a few weeks they have grown in confidence and can see the benefit of having some one-on-one time. I would definitely recommend Stuart.
From Amelia (5/5): (GCSE Maths) My 15yr old son has had three lessons with Stuart so far.His comments after their first lesson was that he couldn`t believe how much he had learnt in one hour. Stuart has a great approach to teaching Math`s and my son looks forward to their lesson and the new challenges each week. Stuart is highly recommended by us.
From Gillian (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Great start Daniel really got on well due to your excellant teaching
From Janie (5/5): (GCSE Chemistry) Thank you Stuart, you were a great help to Joe in the run-up to his science and maths GCSEs. His confidence improved and I`ve no doubt his exam result too! Many thanks.
From Martine (4/5): (GCSE Biology)
From Chris (5/5): (GCSE Maths) Stuart has proved to be an excellent choice as a tutor to my 16 year old son preparing for his GCSEs. My son`s feedback was glowing commenting on his patience and ability to expalin previously thought to be difficult mathematical problems in a manner easy to understand. In fact my son`s comment was "; I learned more in my first 3 sessions with Stuart than I did in my whole last year.";
My son used the sessions with Stuart to ";brush up"; on Maths, Physics and Chemistry and I have no hesitation in recommending him. He represents good value for money!
From Lucie (5/5): (A-Level Chemistry) Stuart is a first rate teacher.
From Clare (5/5): (GCSE Maths) My son awarded Stuart 9.5 out of ten as a teacher on first visit. Since then has looked forward to lessons rather than begrudge them. Really pleased.
From Linda (5/5): (GCSE Combined Science)
From Elizabeth (4/5): (A-Level Biology) Just had their first lesson with Stuart and both my children gave him the thumbs up saying he explains difficult concepts in a way they can understand.
From Calvin (4/5): (A-Level Chemistry)
From Will (5/5): (A-Level Biology) Will found his first session really useful. He thought you were very approachable and easy to talk to. He thinks these sessions will really help with exam technique and with getting to grips with answering questions succinctly and with the correct amount of detail. We are delighted that we found you to help him.

Feedback For Stuart (18)
Very happy with Stuart
Stuart is friendly and extremely passionate about the subjects he teaches. He tutored my daughter from GCSEs to A-levels and covered content from all the sciences. He always gave good advice and supported her in the topics she was struggling in. She has always been very pleased with the lessons provided, they gave her the confidence and understanding in the topics that were covered. Thanks to Stuart`s support and lessons, my daughter has achieved grades which got her into her dream university. I am extremely happy I found him and would highly recommend. Thank you very much Stuart.
Stuart has been great, communicating well and teaching my daughter A level Biology. Even after a few weeks she is growing in confidence and enjoying the lessons. Everything is online but this is working well.
Tutors Response :
Thank you very much for the positive feedback :)
Stuart has a calm and methodical approach
good experienced teacher
Stuart has quickly built a good working relationship with my daughter and we are planning to use his services until GCSE. He is friendly, reliable, thorough and explains things very well.
My son is very intelligent but had lost his interest in learning for some reason and was struggling with science.
Stuard has made an enormous difference to his understanding of the subject.
Stuart is a kind and caring person and tutor. I would not hesitate to recommend him. I just wish I`d found him sooner.
Great a-level chemistry tutor - knowledgeable, reliable and keen for his students to do well. Lots of relevant exam advice and detailed explanation. Stuart teaches the student to have an overview of what the questions `look like` before going into detail. Would recommend.
Stuart provided first-class tuition for my daughter in A-level chemistry over a 6-month period and his knowledge, support and encouragement helped her secure the grade that she required for university entry. His knowledge of A-level biology also proved helpful on occasions. Highly recommended. Thanks Stuart!
Stuart was very helpful to my daughter.
Patient, knowledgeable and experienced.
Stuart has been coming regularly for a couple of months now to help my son with GCSE sciences. He is always very prompt and arrives ready to jump in and cover any topic for any of the three sciences that we ask. My son enjoys the sessions and it is helping him to keep up in class and have a better understanding of the subjects. Stuart is personable and friendly and is knowledgeable of the new curriculum .
Very reliable with excellent communication skills for teenagers. Stuart made a huge difference to my sons knowledge which showed in his exam results.
My 15 year old daughter who will be sitting her GCSE`s next spring is already feeling more confident. Stuart`s approach and teaching skills are excellent. We are very pleased and happy with our choice of tutor.
Stuart is a brilliant tutor who tutored our son in the final 9 months leading up to GCSEs in Chemistry, Maths & Physics. The results were A* for two and A for one subject. Stuart is extremely enthusiastic, knowledgeable, patient and reliable. He`s a great teacher and anyone would be lucky to have him. Huge thanks Stuart.
We have only had Stuart for 2 sessions, but already my daughter feels more at ease and confident on the subject taught.
Patience of a saint! Explains info really well really knows his stuff. Fantastic find ! 😀
We were very pleased with the help Stuart was able to give our son Ben in Maths and Chemistry - as a result he went into his GCSE exams with the improved knowledge and confidence he needed. In Ben`s words "Before having tuition with Stuart I didn`t think I`d pass at all, but I`m really pleased to have achieved B grades".
