My tutoring style consists of first understanding the pupil’s level, e.g. by using past papers. From there, I create a lesson plan targeting the specific areas that the pupil found challenging. I believe a tutor should be empathetic, committed and knowledgeable.
3 years of tutoring experience. Friendly and positive communicator, well-organised, and results-oriented. Passionate about helping students achieve any goal that they set out for themselves

Language learning is something that I take seriously. I actively maintain my near-native fluency in French, Spanish and Portuguese, as well as my conversational knowledge of Japanese.
My other interests are piano and chess. I have 15 years of experience playing tango pieces, including Nazareth's Odeon (of which one of the best interpretations is here). In chess, my favourite opening is the Caro-Kann Defence.
If you are a university learner, I might ask for a higher rate (up to £5 p/h more) depending on the subject with which you need help. This is because university-level material requires more preparation time
Martin stepped in to continue my son's A-level preparation in the run-up to his final exams after his original tutor moved from the local area. I'm pleased to report that, through Martin's masterful tutoring, my son recovered from a predicted D to achieve a confident B. Martin quickly identified areas of weakness and was able to create a programme of lessons that complemented the school's work. My son felt totally at ease with Martin and really appreciated his patience and calm explanations of complex maths ideas. To anyone looking for a decent maths tutor, I would recommend Martin without hesitation. I also then asked him to tutor my daughter through her GCSE year. She found exactly the same and got the grade we were hoping for.
I strongly recommend Martin, he is really committed to teaching every single Maths lesson and always ensures that I understand everything. He’s a calm and confident character when it comes to teaching, and he transformed my abilities and confidence within a few months.
Martin is one of those tutors that knows how to listen to your needs and adapt whatever plans he has to make sure it's working for you.
