What I Offer?
Providing them guided understanding
It is important for children to have the particular understanding of a topic from an early age. A poor understanding at an early age can be difficult to correct and I will ensure that a good understanding is provided.
Giving them problems to solve and examples
In essence, improving your understanding is down to practice. I will provide your child with many questions to help further their understanding
Focusing on your child's exam techniques
Exams technique is a different aspect to understanding. Your child will have timed papers in order to simulate exam conditions.
A friendly and enjoyable atmosphere
It is important for your child to enjoy his experience. Children do not have a tendency to ask questions in class due to low self-confidence and low-self esteem. However, due to smaller groups, children are more confident and are able to express themselves.
I have tutored for over seven years from ages ranged from ten to eighteen in both Maths and Sciences, achieving successful grades for both national exams to university and entry requirements to new schools. I have been able to ensure that the full syllabus of the subject is covered so that the child is fully prepared for any exams.

Desmond is a patient tutor who is keen on instilling a solid understanding to begin with which is essential to mathematics. He is clear in his explanations and has a strong belief in practising the given methods thoroughly which this has given me a great deal of confidence which I lacked before in maths.
I had Desmond for my first year of A level, managing to attain a strong A grade and I am sure I will be able to continue my progress into my A2 with his help

Des was an extremely effective and diligent tutor for our daughter, providing consistent, challenging and fun lessons, which were tailored for her capabilities. We were very pleased that she obtained good As in her GCSE and A levels

J Chen

At the moment, he is tutoring my son aged 11 years, also in mathematics. He is in a state school and we wanted Desmond to help increase his confidence and to bring him up to a level ready for secondary school. In the 8 months of tutoring with Desmond, Joseph has improved by 3 SATs sub-levels and now feels much more confident in Mathematics. He finds Desmond approachable and easy to ask questions if he is unsure of anything.

Desmond tutored my daughter through her 11+ exams, in both maths and science. He was very calm and patient, explaining all the work in a way that she understood, as well as always having endless past papers on hand for her to work through. With Desmond's help my daughter ended up getting an A* in maths and the science prize. I would thoroughly recommend him

My 10 year old daughter was struggling with maths and had 11+ loaming. We started with Desmond twice a week and he helped enormously. He is very focussed and thorough, and steadily worked through all the topics she was struggling with. He was tough with her whereas at school she had been 'coasting'. She gradually regained her confidence. School noticed an improvement. She did well in her mock test and passed the 11+ maths exam with an A grade. We have a lot to thank Desmond for

A
A Caroll

Desmond tutored my son for nine months prior to his A level maths exams. He was able to explain what he needed to know,
he motivated him and gave him confidence in his abilities and helped with exam technique. My son's grades improved from a D in his AS levels to an A in his A levels helping him to secure his university place where he is now in his second year. Since then my son has continued to do well in his maths at his university course in Product Design.

H
Hafeez

Desmond helped my daughter ( Y5+Y6) to catch up with the Maths she had missed while we lived abroad and helped to prepare her for the 11 + exams so that she found it an easier task (as she was sitting for 7 schools). She managed to attain 6 offers and went to the school of her choice. He also tutored our son ( Y2) to help him adjust to skipping an academic year and catch up with the maths he had missed out on learning.

I would highly recommend Desmond as a maths tutor
