« 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 - Maths

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

Background

- 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
