Information about Peter

I specialise in A Level Physics primarily AQA, but also all other Boards. I teach all Boards for A Level Maths according to the new linear specifications.

I also teach all further maths subjects. At GCSE, and iGCSE I teach maths, further maths and physics to the new linear specifications. I also assist A Level students with entrance tests such as the Engineering Test for Cambridge and also Step Maths 1-3. For degree level students I specialise in electrical and mechanical engineering applied maths. I have been a Maths and Physics tutor for about 14 years. I focus on fundamental topics which students often find difficult and tailor this to my predictions of question types that will appear in the examinations. I adapt my style to the requirements of each student, but tend to make use of past exam papers where these are available. I find this is a very effective technique and produces very good results. In terms of support, I may set work to be done during the week and I respond to questions at any time via text/WhatsApp etc. I have degrees in Pure Mathematics and Engineering Physics.

Availability: Mainly available during the afternoons/evenings, but also some weekends.

Willing to travel: 2 miles

Experience: My experience ranges from 11+ and KS2 up to degree level engineering and maths. I specialise in the new A Level Physics specifications. I also cover much of the maths content of various HNC and HND courses in civil and electrical engineering etc. I have worked as a college lecturer and held various managerial positions in industry involving the solution of complex engineering and mathematical problems. I am currently semi-retired and also take on occasional consultancy work in engineering and IT.

As a parent and an experienced secondary school leader, with a Doctorate in Education, I can fully recommend Peter. He has tutored and mentored our son through college and now through his engineering degree. Peter`s professional approach enables him to identify tutee`s needs and meet them in an inspirational way which develops both their confidence and their capabilities. Peter has a supportive manner, is totally reliable and is, quite simply, the best. You will be most fortunate if you can secure his services.

Peter tutored our daughter through her A level physics. He was always on time and flexible in working around holidays etc. He and our daughter hit it off straight away, he made her feel at ease and was always available to answer questions out of his tutoring hours. Great tutor, thanks Peter

I cannot recommend Peter highly enough. He has just coached my daughter through both her As retakes and her A2 exams in maths and although he only started coaching her in March he has helped her raise her grade to a B. He has a practical approach and a calm and supportive manner as well as being extremely flexible around times and appointments. Whilst ultimately it was my daughter who had to do the work I am convinced without him she would not have achieved her grades without him. He was the voice of reason throughout and kept her calm and grounded.

Peter has been a great tutor for last minute help with A2 Maths for my son. He has been flexible with timings of sessions and my son has really benefited from them. My son tells me that Peter explains things really clearly and he has learnt more in a single session than in weeks of school lessons! I think he even looks forward to the sessions which is a real achivement. Thank you!
