After completing my MA Economics at Edinburgh University I taught Economics at a boarding school in Surrey (Epsom College), achieved the highest results in the school history. I have tutored over 1000 students and I have never met a student who is not capable of a top grade. I have experience with many students with learning challenges including under-motivated, unfocused, dyslexic, dyspraxic, aspergers, ADHD and autistic. In my experience the right educational approach can dramatically change their attitude to learning, success and happiness.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an up to date DBS.

When I got an A grade my parents had a mixture of shock and jubilation. Knowing I had gone from E grade to A in such a short period of time was a large transition, but working with Patrick you feel like anything is possible.
I have a tremendous amount of respect for Patrick as a teacher and as a person, and I strongly encourage you to hire him. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

My son suffers from ADHD and despite being a very smart kid; his poor concentration prevented him from putting his intelligence to academic use. Patrick used a specific method, 'Talk to Write'. This technique had a major impact on my son who went from strength to strength and from getting Ds in his mock exams, to getting A for his A2 exam. My son had many tutors over the years and Patrick is the one who made the biggest difference on his academic results.
Patrick' tutoring completely changed my attitude towards the topic. Patrick taught me in a way that was engaging, easy to follow and that made what I used to see as a boring topic something I am now fascinated by. He showed me that evaluating and questioning information, as opposed to simply learning something, can be hugely effective. Patrick's enthusiasm and passion is infectious. I am now fascinated by business and got the top grade in the class in my school”
My son, Felix, has dyspraxia and was struggling with three Us his mocks. Patrick told us about his 'method' and how this could be applicable to all subjects. Part of it was Patrick having this brutally frank discussion with Felix in which he said 'look mate, you are going to fail unless you really change'. And that is what he did. Teaching Felix how to plan, work hard and look forensically at answers yielded great results. He got a miraculous AAB for his final grades and we were delighted.
