I am an experienced classroom teacher working as a full-time tutor. Whether you are seeking short term tuition in the run up to exams or more long term tuition, I'll be glad to help.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach A-level mathematics (pure, statistics and mechanics), GCSE, IGCSE and International Baccalaureate Mathematics (HL and SL). I also teach physics to the same level. I am able to teach at university level too in many areas in mathematics and physics.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a BSc in physics from Warwick University. I achieved an upper second degree. I also have a PhD in experimental physics research and a PGCE in science.
- How much do you charge?
I offer reduced rates for group tuition. This is a very economical way to receive tuition. Find a friend and come to receive tuition in a group of two or more.
For GCSE tuition (single rate) I charge £30 per hour
For A-level I charge £35 per hour.
For teaching two students in a group the same subject I charge £40 per hour (£20 each) for A-level
For teaching two students in a group the same subject I charge £35 per hour (£17.50 each) for GCSE
- Where do you teach?
Normally, I teach only at my own home which is just off the High Street in Brentwood.
- When are you available?
I am available 9am to 9pm six days a week.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach 11-19 year olds and adult learners.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for GCSEs, A-levels and the IB diploma in mathematics and physics. I also prepare for entrance exams.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I use a Staedtler digital pen which displays what I write in real time on my screen. This is shared through Skype. The student needs no extra technology to view what I write on their screen. Screen sharing is free with Skype.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I want to build a good relationship with my tutees and thus help them build confidence. Have you thought about Skype tuition? It is cheaper and really no different from face-to-face tuition.

- What kind of experience do you have?
I am an experienced teacher of mathematics and physics and have taught in a wide range of international schools in the UK, Europe and Southern Africa. I have been tutoring regularly now for about two years. I am now a full-time tutor.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes, I obtained this in May 2013. I am happy to show you this.
- Where and with whom did you train?
My academic degrees (PhD and BSc in physics) are from Warwick University. I studied my PGCE at Sussex University.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
I tutored an A-level student recently at Brentwood School. he lacked confidence but had the ability. I was recently told that he had achieved A grades in C1 and C2 which I had been tutoring him in. I have also tutored a young man who is studying for an engineering degree and needed help with some of his units.
• BSc Physics (University of Warwick)
• PGCE Science (University of Sussex)
• DBS certificate from May 2013
Dear Alan, thank you for the help with IB mathematics and physics at HL. I was offered a place at Imperial College to study Aeronautical Engineering.
I must say that I am very pleased with the outcome of your work with my son. And I am very glad to hear that he has been very hard working.
I am confident that Niccolo's experience with you will help him to re-assess his capabilities and to re-evaluate the importance of resilience in working.
Hello Dr. Evans, my daughter got an A in physics. Thank you for your help.
Hi Dr Evans
Ben's thrilled - got 87% in his maths mock today so has had his UCAS prediction confirmed as an A
Thanks for your input!!
Hi Alan, I just wanted to let you know that Katie got a B in her maths exam which we are all thrilled with. Thank you again for tutoring her.
Hi Alan, it's April. Just wanted to let you know I got a B overall in maths today! I was one mark off an A in the C1 paper so I am really pleased. Thank you again for all your help in preparing me for the exams. I'm extremely grateful.
