Information about Paul

NOTE - WITH COVID I AM **ONLY** TUTORING ONLINE FOR FORESEEABLE FUTURE [AT LEAST UNTIL EASTER 2021 HALF TERM]

HELLO! Now left the bureaucracy of mainstream teaching, I`m wanting to stay teaching in some form and helping students get the grades they deserve.
I find, quite often, that it is a combination of lacking in confidence and a `not getting` of some aspect of subject knowledge that holds people back from getting better grades/understanding.
This can, and will , be remedied!

It requires two things - working through the missing/misunderstood info and building of the confidence. Both of these I have had strong experience in, and find that 1-2-1 tutoring really does help in both of these areas. Please see my feedback to get a flavour of how I tutor and the responses I get!
If you are unsure of how best to be helped, give me a call or email: If I don`t think I can help, I`ll be the first to tell you!

[Note: I`m respectful of people`s income - the recession is hitting us all hard, and I`d rather have work at a lower rate than no work at a higher... Contact me to discuss your situation if you think this may apply]

Availability: NOTE - WITH COVID I AM **ONLY** TUTORING ONLINE FOR FORESEEABLE FUTURE [AT LEAST UNTIL EASTER 2021 HALF TERM]

I am currently available for new bookings - definitely get in touch if you are looking for home tutoring.

Happy to tutor online continually [would prefer as saves travel costs, time and allows for student to remain at home, but willing to travel after it is safe to do so - cost will increase as such though [up to 10 miles from NN4]

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have tutored both professionally and for friends` children for the last 15 years, offering assistance to all ages, helping from KS2 up to, and including A Levels [Media and English].
I can also help with adults in learning literacy, numeracy, getting to grips with IT [Microsoft Office and general how-to-use-efficiently] or who may want a `refresher` in a certain aspect of English or Maths to help their children themselves.
I have taught in a large variety of schools and have experience of students with physical and mental impairments. My main experience is in mainstream and I am familiar with most National curricula and exam boards.

Paul has only been working with my son for a short time but has already hugely increased his confidence in his own ability. Paul was able to swiftly understand him and assess the specific needs he has. Thank you for making English not seem so daunting for him!

Our son has responded really well to Paul. Even though he has had only two lessons so far we feel confident that he will benefit immensely from his support. My son finds Paul’s techniques easy to understand which he explains in a calm manner. He is already gaining in confidence in the areas he was struggling with. Hopefully, my son will continue making progress with Paul.
Salma.

I have found Paul to be a very kind and patient tutor despite my initial concerns (I am in my seventies and do not always understand too quickly).
His explanations are clear and he is able to adjust his teaching to any level.
This is invaluable as my computer skills are out of date and my questions tend to jump about a bit!
He is punctual and treats my home with respect and I look forward to our sessions.

Paul taught our daughter for 4 months for 1 hour a week lessons while she was taking her A level 2 for English Lit / Lang this year. There had been a few issues at school which had affected our daughter`s confidence in her own ability for English. As soon as Paul met with our daughter for the first lesson, he instantly put her at ease and she was very happy with his style, and confident that Paul would be a great help. He is a very enthusiastic teacher but very easy going and down to earth with it. We are very pleased to have found Paul on Tutor Hunt because with the assistance of Paul`s excellent and individual teaching style and approach our daughter achieved a high B grade in her A level for English Lit / Lang - great result! We absolutely recommend Paul for anyone looking for extra support or guidance for their sons or daughters. And a lovely guy into the bargain - thanks for everything Paul.

I was looking for a maths tutor for my 15 year old daughter who was struggling in maths at school and I found Paul via this website.

Paul is an excellent tutor and he knows the curriculum very well and he knows how to explain it to the student to achieve the target grades.

He always tries to make the session interesting and fun for the student to gain confident and interest on the subject.

After few lessons in maths we request him to give some extra help in English Language as well.

My daughter is really enjoying the classes and I think we are very lucky to found him.

We can see from my daughter a very good improvement and confidence in Maths and English Language.

I thoroughly recommend Paul for anyone who looking for a tutor in Maths or English.

My son wasn`t getting the grade he knew he was capable of. How lucky we are to have found Paul. The engaging, fun way he teaches has increased my son`s confidence and interest in English, after only a few sessions. To be honest, we all look forward to Monday afternoons.

Paul is professional, friendly and is totally making a difference to my son`s education.

Worth.Every.Penny!

Not your average English tutor, to be sure. Paul always works hard to make sessions fun. He actively teaches and fully engages with the task in hand.

I had been looking for a maths tutor for my 15 year old son who had been struggling to fully engage at school.

I found Paul via this website, and having spoken to Paul on the phone, we had him come to our house for an initial tutoring session.

I arrived home from work to be greeted by a very excited and motivated 15 year old, who proudly showed me the worked he`d done with Paul and could he do the same next week!

That was all I needed to hear from a previously uninterested teenager, struggling to keep up in his maths class at school.

Paul is obviously a very competent and engaging tutor, able to identify areas of interest and adapt his teaching to be a meaningful and relevant experience for his students.

I highly recommend Paul to anyone interested in a tutor that isn`t just going to go through the motions, but actually make learning an interesting and even fun activity for his students.

5 stars from me - highly recommended.

My son enjoys his lessons and actually get excited about him coming over. Paul is extremely professional and I would recommend anybody to use him . He makes the lesson entertaining, whilst teaching ,so that your child does not realize he is learning at the same time. My sons confidence has grown so much since he has been tutored by PAUL . I would 100% recommend parents to use, Paul as their childs tutor.

Don`t waste your time looking at other profiles !!...TRY PAUL NOW ...
