« Victor is a wonderful tutor! He explains concepts with such enthusiasm and clarity that I leave each lesson not only more confident but with a real interest in the subject. Lessons are comprehensive and well-tailored to the specification. I believe that Victor's guidance in Chemistry and Maths was invaluable in helping me to obtain A*s in all of my A-levels, thus securing a place at Oxford to read medicine. »

Victor is a wonderful tutor!
He explains concepts with such enthusiasm and clarity that I leave each lesson not only more confident but with a real interest in the subject. Lessons are comprehensive and well-tailored to the specification. I believe that Victor's guidance in Chemistry and Maths was invaluable in helping me to obtain A*s in all of my A-levels, thus securing a place at Oxford to read medicine.

David

I always felt that I got more out of an hour with Victor that four hours with a teacher. He has a unique gift for explaining difficult concepts with great clarity. This, coupled with a vast knowledge that stretches well beyond A-level makes Victor one of the very best. He has a very methodical and structured style of teaching which really suited me. I always got the top grade in GCSE and A-level exams Victor helped me with and I have since achieved a first class honours degree from Oxford.

K
Kajal (A-level pupil)

Victor is an excellent, inspirational teacher who explains concepts from the very beginning, enabling one to get a good grasp of the topic and being able to apply this knowledge to different scenarios. He has helped greatly in showing me how to approach problems and this boosted my confidence for when it came to the exams. Overall, he is a very experienced, professional tutor, who I would strongly recommend to all students of all abilities.

M
Mrs F.P. (parent of GCSE pupil)

We wanted to write to say a very big thank you for working so hard with David to enable him to achieve his A* grades. We are particularly delighted with the Additional Maths result, particularly as he was working at a C grade in April. David always says that the one-to-one lessons with you allow him to ask questions freely and he describes you as the very best teacher he has ever had.

Victor is an excellent tutor - patient, reliable and extremely knowledgeable about his subjects as well as the exam syllabuses. As Victor has multiple qualifications, he was able to help my son with his chemistry studies in addition to maths and further maths, so in effect he was covering three A-level subjects. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Victor - we are so very glad we found him. My son went on to get 3 As and a B.

Victor is a great teacher of physics and chemistry. His ability to connect with his students and his talent at teaching simple concepts as well as more advanced topics are both truly superior. Because of Victor's approach to physics, my daughter started to love physics and now she is going to do a physics degree at Imperial with 4 A*s in her A2 exams.

Jamie

I would like to thank Victor for all his hard work over the past year; it has been tremendously helpful and allowed me to improve from C to A in several exams. Victor is always very patient, and with one-to-one lessons he can cover the syllabus quicker and in more depth than at school. I really enjoyed my time with Victor, and found the lessons challenging and engaging. I would highly recommend him to any student wishing to improve their grades.

We found Victor through The Tutor Pages to provide tuition for my daughter in the five months or so before her chemistry GCSE. She felt prior to her sessions that she simply didn't understand chemistry at all. After her first lesson with Victor she came out and said that she had completely understood the material they and covered and had no idea why her school teacher couldn't explain it in the way that he had...

...She made the same type of comment after each and every lesson, and in the weeks before her GCSE exams it was chemistry that she felt most confident about. At parents evening our daughter's teacher made the comment that chemistry had suddenly “clicked” with her. We didn't explain why!
Victor is a highly professional teacher capable of rendering the subject matter intelligible for those perhaps not naturally gifted at science.
Oh, and did I say she got an A*?
