- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
When tutoring online, I use video, audio and screen sharing using a package called Zoom. This enables me to use any software package I want, without the students having to install it. My lessons are thoroughly prepared using PowerPoint to explain and simplify mathematical concepts, although when it is necessary I use graphing and geometry packages. During the lessons students and I can both annotate presentations and documents to highlight and clarify when needed.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
When students sign up with me I commit myself to doing what ever I can to assist them in achieving their potential. In addition to well prepared and structured lessons, I am always available to answer questions outside lesson time, normally using WhatsApp or Zoom. When students try online face to face tuition, it normally surpasses their expectations. I am that confident about my service, if you are not happy after the first lesson, I will give you a full refund.
Online education is the future.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I am a Mathematics teacher with 21 years experience. In addition to teaching in the UK and Spain I have taught at a number of top international schools in the Middle East where I have been the head of two departments and a head of year with pastoral care of over 160 students. During this time I have successfully tutored students of all abilities and enabled them to achieve their potential.
I have qualified as a Google Educator which has enhanced my understanding and use of online education tools. This alongside my teaching experience has enabled me to develop my approach and deliver a high quality service.
I offer a weekly lesson, syllabus specific resources and a troubleshooting service where students can ask me questions concerning the lesson any time during the week.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Perfect! My son has received three lessons so far, and the difference in his confidence and understand is amazing! We would definitely recommend Neil.
Working with Pippa's son Sam on his GCSE maths. Reliable, punctual and picks things up easily.
Mr Neil was the Math tutor for my son for two years, he took him as a son, not a student, gave him support, kindness and high quality teaching. Mr Neil put my son on the first step to success.
IGCSE Math, AS level, then A2 in very short time.
Mr Neil is your answer for a bright academic future, full of A*s.
Thank you, Mr Neil. I really appreciate your patience and support and help for both me and my son.
I have known Neil for many years both as a friend and a colleague. He is an amazing teacher with an ability to get the best out of each and every student. As an online tutor he stands out from the crowd with his experience, ability and knowledge.
Neil is a very dedicated and motivating Maths teacher. He draws out the best in your child. My child always looks forward to attending Maths sessions with Neil.
He mentors his students in a very cordial, loving and friendly environment.
He is extremely approachable and flexible in his methodology and works to suit his students' aptitude and comfort level.
He is available 24/7 on WhatsApp and his students can contact him whenever a need arises.
I have many friends who are happy that I recommended him for their children.
His interaction with his students is so engaging that my daughter says she forgets that there is a screen present between her and Neil while he teaches her. She says,"it's as if he is sitting right next to me!"
If you are looking to have your child achieve the top grade, Neil is undoubtedly the best teacher out there!
A very engaging and focused tutor. Makes the subject fun to learn and is very patient with his students and determined to help them achieve the highest grades possible and boost their confidence up. Very helpful with exam techniques and past papers. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking to make their target grade easier.
In my personal experience, Neil is a great teacher. The way he teaches is very different compared to any other teacher I’ve known which is a good thing because I’m not a very smart student and my grades aren’t the best, but when I started doing tuition with Neil my grades got better. I learned so much even though I’m the type of student who hates studying and forgets most of the things the next day but after doing a course with him it was the first time my grade for math actually went up. I highly recommend Mr Neil to any student who wants better results.
Neil expertly tutored my daughter to achieve an A* at GCSE Maths. At the start of Y10 she was predicted a B. In her words 'Mr Neil is the best maths teacher I have ever had". Neil was able to differentiate his support to tackle precisely the areas she needed to develop and in a kind and supportive way thus developing her own intrinsic motivation at the same time. I would thoroughly recommend Neil to anyone wanting their child to improve their maths skills; a knowledgeable and skilled maths teacher who also happens to be incredibly kind and supportive too.
Neil is a first class mathematics teacher with a superb track record. His knowledge of the subject is fantastic and he can explain the most complex concepts in a very clear and concise manner. He is always extremely professional, enthusiastic and sincere. It has been a joy to work with him and he is highly respected by all of his students and colleagues.
How does one come to describing such an outstanding teacher ? MrÂ Hawley is the reason why I have gained back my confidence in maths . He makes everything so much more interesting . I still use the notes he gave me to help me through my IGCSE years . I don't know what I would have done without him . I dont remember one time where I walked out of his classroom without fully understanding the material.. I have had the privilege to be in his class , and I really can't thank him enough.
Throughout my school years , there have been several teachers in my life that have made a huge impact on my education. MrÂ Hawley is without doubt one of them. I didn't get a single B - only straight A's.Â To this day , I still remember everything he taught us . He inspired us , taught me to never give up , and urged me to ask whenever I was stuck on any question . In fact , He gave up a lot of his free time to help me and my friends out and I can't thank him enough.
â€‹I have known Mr Hawley for over 4 years, and he is a truly inspiring man. His detailed knowledge of Mathematics, particularly the AS and A-level syllabuses in addition to his brilliant mathematical techniques make him the ideal source of Mathematics tuition. His teaching technique, diligence and care for his students gave me the confidence and necessary knowledge to do the best I possibly can in my Mathematics A-level.Â
