Information about Neil

Personal: I have been a Secondary Computer Science teacher for 16 years and Head of Department for 12 of those years! I have also served two years as part of the Leadership Team.

Teaching Experience: I have 16 years of experience in 4 different schools. I have worked in an all boys school, an all girls school and my current one is mixed!

I have also had experience of teaching GCSE & A-Level Business Studies in a Grammar School setting.

Tutoring Approach: I have developed a coaching approach over the past few years where I create an environment and ask leading questions which allow the student to come up with their own answers - this is a higher form of education than just talk, write, repeat.

I like to use a lot of different resources when tutoring, whether traditional paper based or interactive. I firmly believe in planting "seeds" which the student can grow. It is not enough to simply talk at a student for an hour. They need to think, and develop ideas and it is only this way that they will grow and develop into a confident student.

I use Past Papers to prepare for exams, and I can also mark coursework prior to submission at your school and provide detailed written feedback on how to improve it.

It`s never too late - no matter how close to the exams we are!

Availability: Mon-Fri: 4:30pm onwards
Saturday/Sunday: Possible - contact me for details!

After School

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: As well as my vast teaching experience in a Secondary school, I have also been doing private tuition for the past 6 years with excellent results. I have parents who would be more than willing to provide positive references.

Remember, I am a current teacher who is actually delivering the courses you are studying - what better experience is there?!

This also means I have access to Secure Materials which "non-teachers" will not.

Rachel (Miss)

4/5 Rating

My daughter and I are very pleased with Neil. He is reliable and punctual and from the start has put my daughter at ease. He is very clear and concise with his explanations and expectations. He gives honest and relevant feedback and boosts my daughter`s confidence in the subject, things that have been sadly lacking with the teacher she has at school.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for the feedback. It has been a pleasure working with Rachel so far.

Neil has been tutoring my son for about a month now. We`ve had a very positive experience.

He is very knowledgeable, good at explaining things, very encouraging to my son and has a good rapport with him.

I would recommend him.

Heidi (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

Neil has a good grasp of the course content, and has quickly assessed the gaps in my son`s knowledge. My son is enjoying his sessions and finding them very helpful. Neil is good at keeping in touch regarding lesson times and is just the sort of tutor we were looking for.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind feedback - it is a pleasure to be working with your son - we will get him the grade he needs!

My son Hugo found Neil to be an excellent Tutor giving him lots of knowledge and confidence for his Mock GCSE exams. I have already booked Neil to come back 4 times during the Easter Holidays. I would definitely recommend Neil to anyone requiring help with Computing GCSE level.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the kind feedback. I look forward to working with Hugo over Easter

Neil is absolutely lovely. My son has found his lessons extremely useful . He extends your knowledge by making you think outside of the box which is brilliant .

Tutors Response :

Thank you - it has been and continues to be a pleasure working with you. It was really exciting to see the UCAS predicted grade a few weeks ago. He has worked so hard!

5/5 Rating

Neil is one in a billion. He is exceedingly knowledgeable about computer science and hasa very effective teaching style. My son has benefitted from Neil’s calm and logical teaching approach, such as talking and walking through exam questions,one by one, going through past papers, troubleshooting tricky areas step by step and providing reassurance and top tips every step of the way. Neil goes over and above by leaving homework, papers and mark schemes. He has been flexible, reliabie, always arriving ahead of time, and he is very organised and professional. I recommend Neil most highly and feel his students are very lucky to have him helping them, with all his passion and skill. Katrina Sands

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your kind feedback. It was a real pleasure working with you. I was very pleased to see a clear impact in the sessions with your son`s assessment scores double under my tutoring.

1/5 Rating

Had for one lesson, then tried to get in touch and never heard back. Would avoid.

Tutors Response :

Just saw this piece of very disappointing feedback! It does not reflect the many happy tutees (and parents!) that I have found through here and other locations.
