I teach students and take coachees of all ages, and at the levels indicated above.
My professional, business and life coachees are of a range of ages, and are based all over the UK, and I also have three overseas coachees at the moment. I've got clients in very senior positions in blue-chip companies, directors of small & medium-sized enterprises, as well as foreign professionals.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare my students for all exams from A-Level, up to and including Masters Degree level subjects, in the fields of both History and Law, but given my 7 years' experience in the Banking industry, I'm also able to offer some helpful knowledge into the world of finance, banking and investments.
When coaching however, I have been mainly coaching graduates on breaking into the workplace, as well as young and established professional who are in their first or second management or executive position.

Online tutoring or coaching is done via Skype. I will also do an initial consultation session via skype or via email, and payment arrangements can be determined in this session.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
You'll find me very friendly, experienced, helpful and personable, but above all, focused, firm, and intent on helping you achieve your goals.
As well as knowing the subject matter, I place a lot of emphasis on writing, presentation, research and examination techniques, all of which are key to achieving the best results.
If you'd like me to help you regarding life, career or business coaching, I will take the same people-focussed approach, and make sure I understand your needs and your ambitions as soon as possible, which helps build the foundations for your development.
If there's anything else you'd like to know, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have over 9 years experience of delivering a high quality tutoring and coaching service to A-Level students, Undergraduates, Masters students and professionals of all ages.
I've had great results tutoring and coaching over 300 students and young professionals over the years. I've been able to achieve this by setting high expectations of myself and my students/coachees.
My students and coachees often feed back to me that my approach makes the sessions highly enjoyable, and enables a person to stretch themselves, which in turn, helps their academic, personal and career development.
In particular, my methods of teaching writing skills, argument construction and presentation has proven a great help to students meeting or exceeding their expectations regarding their coursework or exams. I have had some excellent feedback from students and parents about how I both meet, and exceed grade expectations.
As a coach, I have 6 years' experience iin the fields of Leadership, Career, Business and Life coaching. My current coachees include a range of undergraduates and professionals in the first or second management or executive positions. My coachees have often fed back to me that I'm very warm, but challenging and goal-focused.

I am also a graduate of the University of Cambridge with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Coaching and Leadership.

- Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students are a good mix of undergraduate and A-Level students. I've also had a good deal of experience working with students with learning difficulties and distressed circumstances, and I like to think I've made a positive impact in their moving forward. I recently completed a research project in collaboration with a student of mine relating to how the Russian oligarchy impact the Russian economy, and its place in the global market.
My current coachees include recent graduates who have made it onto some well-thought of graduate employment programmes, as well as established managers and executives. In addition, I have 3 life coachees in Bristol itself.
• BA (Hons) History (The University of Liverpool)
• MA in Modern History (King's College, London)
• Enhanced CRB Certified
• Association of Coaching
Nathan was able to focus Omar on what he needed to do for his A-Level History, i.e. what the examiners would want, how best to revise and bring the subject to life for Omar, which made it a lot easier for him to learn. Nathan is very personable & easy-going which made it easier for Omar to develop a rapport with him and gain the confidence he needed. Omar's now at his first choice of university having passed all of his A levels, which he probably wouldn't have done without Nathan's expert help.
Nathan's tutoring technique is dependent on his students and is very effective. He understands the weaknesses I had within my work and helped me to strengthen my skills within writing and subject knowledge. Nathan's methods were very effective and I recommend any student looking for a long term or short term tutor to get into contact with Nathan. He puts a lot of effort into achieving the best results with his students and deserves a lot of credit.
Nathan was able to help me at very short notice with EU law, which I was really struggling with! I recently got my results back from my law exams today and got a 2:1 in both my EU Law and EU politics exam, which I am more than happy with considering I doubted even passing before today!
Thank you for your help1
Hi Nathan. Your time with Eliza was very helpful to her. You are knowledgeable and clear. Best wishes
Nathan's tutorials and support, made a huge difference to our son's overall approach to exams and revision techniques in general and provided valuable input specifically tailored into how to research and answer questions in his Law 'A' level exams. Our son demonstrated an increased enthusiasm in his subjects and Nathan's input, approach and feedback encouraged him to work harder which resulted in him gaining a place at University. We would recommend Nathan without hesitation
