I have taught ICT to primary school children, and at all secondary levels covering GCSE, OCR Nationals,Cambridge Nationals, BTEC Firsts and AS/A2 Applied ICT and MYP Digital Design. As well as ICT I have also taught Business & Communication Systems to GCSE level and am currently teaching GCSE computing.

(Please Note: Travel expenses may be charged for both time & fuel depending on location. For students attending sessions at my home, I have a suitable room for training, including a computer for student use and a large screen display for presentations)
Important Note: The "First Lesson Free" is given by charging reduced price for the first few lessons (Tutor Hunt requests tutors to provide the first lesson free, however some students only require 1 lesson so I make a reduced charge for the first 2 or 3 lessons, however you must request this on arrival. Thanks)

review(s) for Gary.
Gary has been a great help to my son and has made a big difference in only a few sessions. I would highly recommend him.
Very helpful and worked hard to help my son to learn python
Great! Really, really good teacher, patient, organised and helpful.
He makes my son to get the grades he needed for university.
Many many thanks Gary!
Gary is excellent.As a mature student I was after some Excel basics ahead of a Financial Modelling in Excel course.He gave me exactly what I wanted, with patience.
Gary tutored my daughter in Year 7 computing as she was not confident. He is familiar with the curriculum and is extremely patient and non-judgemental. She gained a great deal from the time that he spent with her.
Gary provided excellent GCSE Computer Science tuition for our son. He was reliable and friendly and interacted very well with our son. We would happily recommend him to other students.
