« Adrian is an amazing tutor! Adrian tutored me through my teaching qualifications and showed me different strategies to solve calculations and problems. He helped to build my confidence with maths and how to build confidence in others. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a tutor; whether it’s for themselves or their child or whoever! He is extremely supportive and patient! And has extensive knowledge so makes a tricky calculation easy. »

1000+ Students Acheived Top Grades. Expert And Engaging Primary Maths and GCSE Maths Tutor.

Methodology

I enjoy helping children achieve their potential. I do this by creating a nurturing and safe space for them to learn, adapting my teaching to their individual needs.

I prefer to teach children with a realistic expectation of acheiving the results you want. I don't believe in stretching children beyond what they're capable of so if you want a tutor who cares about your child's wellbeing first and results second, that's me. I also want your child to have decided for themselves, in partnership with you or alone, that they want tuition and if they want to enter a school, that they want and are prepared to have tuition to acheive their/your goal.

I take your child's coaching very seriously and dedicate 30 to 60 minutes to prepare for each class.

I pay a lot of attention to how your child is feeling and can help them to become aware of and learn to manage their emotions.

I communicate your child's progress with you, so far as I feel this is helpful for them and you. I don't want to overcommunicate and I want you to trust the process and understand that each child has their own pace. Soon enough, you'll see that your child makes progress, not just in Maths but more generally.

I'm one of the more experienced tutors in London and for a time, I had my own tuition agency managing a small team of tutors. I went to more than 50 countries and had some incredible adventures. I'm organised and respectful of your time and I can adapt to your family's culture.

Experience

I've been a Maths tutor since 2008 and during that time, I've taught 100's of students. I help students both intellectually and emotionally. I get results.

I'm expert at helping children gain entry to independent and grammar schools. I've helped students prepare for independent school exams in Central London: Alleyn’s City of London Girl’s School, Dulwich College, Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’, North London Independent Girls’ Schools’ Consortium, City of London for Boys, Francis Holland, Godolphin and Latymer, Haberdasher’s Aske, St Pauls and Westminster and for grammar schools in South East London in Bexley and Kent. I trained to be a primary school teacher at Goldsmiths College.

I can help GCSE students get a grade A or B in the higher paper and a C in the foundation paper. I've taught 10's of students helping them grow in confidence and acheive their goals. I have 2 A levels in Maths (A, A) and a degree in Economics from the University of Nottingham (2:2).

I have a lot of experience teaching children and adults who are anxious about Maths. I've helped more than 100 trainee teachers with passing the QTS Skills Test. The test requires them to be able to do mental maths questions quickly. I help them to feel confident under pressure and teach them the strategies they need. I've taught several students with Aspergers, Autism and Dyscalculia. They way I support both the teachers and the children is to help them with managing their emotions. My own experience, personal and teaching, has shown me that when we're disconnected from our feelings, we can't learn effectively and that by encouraging students to become aware of their feelings and to manage them, significant changes can occur. I can understand the difficulties and frustrations you and them might be feeling and I'd love to see if I can help you with this.

In addition to teaching Maths, I've also spent more than 1500 hours listening and talking to children and adults online in the capacity of coach/English teacher. I can build rapport, gain trust and get to know a person very quickly. This enables me to be an effective tutor and coach.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am very happy to strongly recommend Adrian Beckett, who is providing 11+ maths tuition for my 10 year old son J. J's mother, myself and J have found Adrian to be an excellent tutor. He is very personable and affable, and is very good at engaging Jude. He shows a good understanding of J's maths needs. J has responded well (much better than when I tried to provide some maths guidance!) and has has made marked progress in a short time. - Mr Anson (11+, 2013)

Adrian started tutoring our 10-yr old son only recently, but we have already seen results. J's confidence has soared and, above all, his enjoyment and satisfaction with the subject has increased. I love to hear J muttering aloud as he does the exercises Adrian sets - he becomes totally absorbed with the challenge and it makes a refreshing change that he's not trying to get out of doing his homework! I have great faith that J now stands an infinitely better chance of achieving a scholarship in maths. - Mrs Soopee (11+, 2014)

I am an RE Teacher, and completed my PGCE in 2009. The Numeracy skills test was something I had struggled with hugely for approximately a year and half, and with the great help of Adrian, I managed to pass my Numeracy test after just three sessions with him! I cannot thank him enough, as passing this test means I now have QTS (qualified teacher status) which is a massive change in both recognition and
pay as a teacher - Ms Rajput. (QTS, 2016)

After a few sessions with Adrian, I was able to gain my confidence and face my fears of the QTS test. Adrian is a fantastic tutor, his approach I have noticed was to build my confidence by showing me what I could already do. I now have QTS (qualified teacher status), which is fantastic. I would highly recommend Adrian to any training teacher finding the Skills Test very difficult. – Ms Kaplan (QTS, 2016)

"Thank you for all your support in the months you've been tutoring our daughter. She's over the moon she gained entry to St Pauls" - Mrs. Aylen (GCSE Maths, 2016)

PGCE Primary Trainee Teacher

After three 1.5 hour sessions of Maths tutoring with Adrian I passed
the Numeracy QTS Test first time! I was very impressed with Adrian's approach, we worked through specific areas of Maths that I found difficult and he showed me techniques that simplified the question and made it quicker to answer.These techniques will also prove invaluable in my job as a primary teacher and, through my increased confidence, I hope the children I teach will have a more positive attitude towards Maths.

I've never liked Maths nor have I ever found it easy but with Adrian he made me feel comfortable and confident

Adrian really built my confidence and helped me to get my head round some fast and useful methods aimed to tackle the mental arithmetic part of the test. I felt very confident in the final test and I was able to breeze through the mental arithmetic questions and pass the test.
