I provide one-to-one and small group coaching. I help students develop understanding, technique and confidence. I respond intelligently to individual students, helping them find an approach to studying that works well for them and that they can extend as they progress.
I am happy to work with students doing GCSE maths, embarking on an A Level or tackling the maths component of functional skills. Please ask about other qualifications and subjects.
The coaching can take place at any suitable, agreed location in West Kent, including Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Paddock Wood or Edenbridge. It could be at the student's home. A central location in Tunbridge Wells is available.
I coach in the afternoon and evening, Monday to Saturday. Other times may be possible. Please ask about current availability.
My normal tuition rate is £34 per hour.
An initial consultation of up to 45 minutes is free and provides a chance to explore what would be helpful. If we decide to proceed further, we will agree on general principles for working together and consider how to make good use of a first full lesson. There is no obligation to proceed at any stage.
I would welcome an enquiry from you (via a parent if under eighteen). I seek to give a considered response to each request. A "Refused" response, without a message from me, would be the result of me missing the window of opportunity for replying. In such a case, please feel free to send a further request.
I have a mathematical BSc with 1st class hons. I have also studied philosophy and psychology at degree level. And I have a certificate in counselling skills.
I have a DBS certificate, enhanced for working with children, obtained via a local agency, through which I also offer tuition. I have an earlier disclosure, enhanced for working with vulnerable adults.
I have a wide variety of experience in education and youth work. This includes teaching in a centre for students whose schooling had broken down. I have provided private tuition ranging from KS3 maths up to maths help for students taking science degrees.
My coaching approach encourages clients to reflect on and master the mathematics. I also provide reflective coaching for non-academic goals.
My son needed confidence and more one to one to discuss any confusions he had, while classes are so big, it can be difficult to have the teacher's focus. Nick has been very supportive and my son has felt the lessons very helpful. Already within the year, my son has gone up a class and I believe this is due to Nick's tutoring.
I certainly recommend Nick to anyone whose child needs the added support and confidence in Maths.
I found that [Nick] was able to develop my ability to understand mathematics that I had not previously been able to at school. As a result, I achieved an A grade at GCSE, having been predicted a C. This was an excellent outcome for me and one that was unexpected prior to starting personal tutor sessions.
I always found your tuition to be highly professional and I found your patience and ability to cover subjects in an in-depth and rigorous way invaluable to my studies.
