« My son, who was initially against having a Tutor, is now really happy to have Phillip. He has given him self belief and encouragement. He keeps him one step ahead of the curriculum at School so maintaining his confidence. Phillips explanation are clear and easily understood. He gives him additional papers and goes the extra mile for him. We are hopeful of an excellent grade this summer. »

Philip - Tonbridge - Cambridge Pre U

Methodology

I am an experienced Maths tutor, specialising in sixth form work. I inspire confidence in students whilst appreciating the challenges that the subject brings. I am flexible in tailoring the learning to the student. It's all about exam technique!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Maths including Mechanics

- Tell me about your qualifications.

2:1 in Maths from London University. 30 years as a business leader coaching individuals and teams to out-perform

- How much do you charge?

£40 an hour or £55 for 90 minutes which most sixth form students need and prefer. No travel charge within a 5 mile radius.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach at the student's home as they are more relaxed and the biscuits are better! But I can work at home in Hildenborough. I do not charge for tutoring in the Sevenoaks / Wrotham / Tonbridge triangle. Outside that area there will be a travel charge or the student can come to me. I am also available to tutor Online.

- When are you available?

I have limited after school availability so prefer students who can take free periods at home. Please enquire if interested in late cancellations.

I prefer to work at the student`s home but they are welcome at my home in Hildenborough. Sessions are billed by the hour but 90 minutes is more usual for A Level / IB students. Travel is free in the Sevenoaks / Tonbridge / Wrotham triangle. Further afield may incur a travel charge.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Mainly sixth form. I do some entratnce exams and Add Maths with bright younger students

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online via Skype with an interactive whiteboard - you will need a Skype account and download the whiteboard software

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I have a deep knowledge of the subject, the curriculum and expected standards, which allows me to be articulate in explaining what is required. I enjoy open communication with students and parents alike; I am always available to answer your queries, about maths and progress, outside the tutoring sessions

Super tutor

Philip is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have successfully tutored over 100 students in the West Kent area, as well as family and friends over many years. Mostly A Level Maths and Further Maths. I specialise in IB Higher as well as Standard level where I have worked with twenty students in the past couple of years

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

CRB check complete

- Tell me about some of your current students.

~ Ongoing support to supplement school learning by moving ahead of the syllabus
~ Capable students wanting to maximise the chances of hitting an A grade
~ Intensive revision in the pre-exam break
~ Last-minute 'emergency grade-raising' after a disappointing mock exam
~ Gap year students studying independently to raise grades or revise before heading for University

My son, who was initially against having a Tutor, is now really happy to have Phillip. He has given him self belief and encouragement. He keeps him one step ahead of the curriculum at School so maintaining his confidence. Phillips explanation are clear and easily understood. He gives him additional papers and goes the extra mile for him. We are hopeful of an excellent grade this summer.

My daughter has recently started being tutored by Philip towards her igcse Maths and she is very happy with her sessions and choice of tutor. Philip is organised and approachable with a focused yet relaxed manner which she is responding to really well.

A total professional, from the first meeting it was obvious that he really knew what his stuff! He gave our daughter the confidence she needed - I would not hesitate to recommend Philip or to use him again.

James

Seems excellent from what we`ve seen so far. Pragmatic and with good engaging style, but also works our son appropriately hard. Nice balance.

Clare

We are delighted to have Philip's help with my son's maths and further maths A levels. My son has made great progress in his first few sessions, Philip has made them both challenging and fun and we have every confidence Philip will give him strong support in the run up to his exams. We would be delighted to recommend him.

Philip has greatly improved my confidence in maths due to his patience, clarity and emphasis on the fundamentals. We work through topics at a fast pace but will allocate more time to aspects of the syllabus if I am having problems. He is also very easy to get on with and has your best interests at heart. As I am a private candidate Philip helped me by providing my UCAS application reference, and thankfully, I received offers back from all five universities I applied to.

W
Wendy

I can thoroughly recommend Philip. He has given my son confidence and brought him on greatly in a very short space of time. As well as excellent subject knowledge, Philip also understands the requirements of the different exam boards and has been excellent at providing tips on exam technique.

S
Sarah

Philip, has been very easy to deal with. He is tutoring my daughter AS Further Maths, and she enjoys the way he challenges her thinking. She is studying the subject outside of School, and I have been impressed with how quickly she is moving through the curriculum with Phillips help. I can thoroughly recommend Phillip for anyone needing help with Further Maths.

Philip has been very reliable and is an excellent tutor for my daughter. She enjoys the lessons and is now much more confident in her abilities.
