I know that every student has their own unique way of learning. My teaching style is flexible to account for this - students may approach me with specific questions or problem areas they are stuck on for us to work through together, or simply request a lesson on a certain topic that they found confusing. I have a patient approach to teaching and endeavour to give my students a comprehensive understanding of a subject, whatever it may be. However complicated or daunting Maths and Physics may seem, there is always a logic to it, and I will help you to see that!
I have a Master's degree in Physics with Astronomy from the University of Nottingham, having graduated in 2019. I have tutored 3 children so far, all with very good feedback - ages 12 up to 16. The 12 year old progressed from a C student to an A student over 6 months of tutoring with me in a range of subjects. I am also currently tutoring 2 students so far via Superprof, both with great feedback.
I am most comfortable tutoring in Maths and Physics, but for students in Years 7-9 I would also be prepared to tutor in almost any subject if requested to. I also have extensive experience in scientific writing and great spelling and grammar skills, should any students require proof reading from me.
A Level tuition: £15/hour
GCSE tuition: £12/hour
KS3 tuition: £10/hour
Cancellation policy: free cancellation up to 24 hours before lesson. After that, 50% lesson fee incurred.

I am a recent Physics graduate specialising in tutoring Maths and Physics from Year 7 up to A Level. I have prior experience of tutoring in these subjects and good feedback as a result of this. I also have good spelling, grammar, and extensive scientific writing experience should anyone require their work to be proof-read.
Depending on the student's wishes, I can offer lessons in Maths or Physics in topics requested by the student, or I can work through problems or questions that the student comes to me with in these subject areas. My first lesson is offered free and is a great chance for myself and the student to get to know each other and discuss how best they would like to be taught, and on what platform.
I am unable to offer in-person tutoring at this time due to Covid-19 restrictions so all my lessons will be online.
Perfect! I was very nervous before my lesson with Nicola, but she really put me at ease. I've avoided anything math-related most of my adult life, and I think Nicola will finally help me overcome that.
Carla is very eager to learn and has provided me with lots of questions to go through with her. I look forward to seeing her progress in the next few months!
I have known Nicola for many years, she is an enthusiastic young individual who is exceptionally passionate about helping students reach their maximum potential. Nicola is committed, reliable and is fantastic at breaking subjects down into bite size chunks. She is confident yet approachable and also has a great sense of humour which certainly helps with learner engagement!
I have known and studied along side Nicola throughout the duration of her degree. She is an enthusiastic person and always loves sharing her enthusiasm.
I recommend Nicola to anyone looking for help in Maths and Physics as she is good at relating to students, breaking concepts down so they are more easily understandable.
Nicola has a kind and patient personality which in my opinion are very important qualities in a tutor.
Nicola is my next door neighbour. She has been coming to tutor my three children ranging in age from 11-15 for a couple of years. She is extremely versatile, helping my older child with gcse sciences and inspiring my youngest daughter to produce good homework in all areas of the curriculum.
All of my children have bonded with her extremely well and look forward to her coming over for their sessions. She is trustworthy and extremely reliable. She brings out the best in them and I feel very lucky to have found her to help with their educational needs.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nicola to tutor any age group as she is versatile and is very good at modifying her methods to suit the needs of pupils.
