Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

• I have been tutoring in Cambridge since 1999. Previously, I tutored and mentored students in Tunisia, North Africa, for 15 years; set up Adult Education centres and taught in Sudan for 3 years; taught in a Secondary School in Uganda, East Africa for 2 years and was acting Principal there for 1 year.

Yes.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Great people, mostly between ages of 11 and 25, plus one or two older adults. Often they have lost confidence in their ability to learn a particular subject or subjects. After a couple of sessions they have a whole new vision of themselves, move quickly up the academic grades and feel better about themselves in general. Some of their testimonials are available.

Dear Doctor Hillas, Thankyou so much for teaching me Maths. I could not have achieved anything near the A grade I did without your help. I thouroughly enjoyed the lessons which cannot be said for my Maths lessons at school so thankyou for putting up with me.

I have no hesitation in writing this reference for Thomas Hillas, who has tutored my son for the past 18 months in preparation for his GCSE's.
We found him reliable, conscientious and, most of all, my son trusted and liked him. He not only helped him with the subjects in which he was being tutored but gave him confidence and self belief. He has matured as a result of Mr Hillas' help.
