« Timothy is patient, always on time, dilligent with his preparation for the sessions and has easily formed a strong relationship with our son. We also really appreciated his flexibility to fit the sessions in to our hectic schedules. His lessons were always focussed and fun and, contrary to my expectations, my son always looked forward to the tutoring and in fact asked for more! The result speaks for itself, we are delighted that we have been offered a place at our first choice secondary. »

Due to the coronavirus situation I am currently conducting all of my lessons online, until the virus has significantly diminished. In "normal" times I mostly teach around Kingston and Richmond upon Thames, near where I am based.

Tutoring online has allowed me to fit in more tutoring clients and as a result I am available most days of the week, particularly Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Please enquire for more information.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Ages 7-14 (key stage 1-3).

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

7+ through to 13+.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

One-to-one tuition is something I have always enjoyed since I began working as a tutor and I am pleased to find that so many of my students have enjoyed my sessions as well. Compared with classroom study, it is a much more personal form of education that can allow students to learn in the way that they feel is suitable for them. Without the direct confines of the national curriculum, private tutoring allows for much creativity which I embrace wherever I can. I try to make learning as hands-on as possible and use plenty of my own handwritten worksheets for maths and stretch children's imagination and creativity in English. Above all, I try to make my lessons as enjoyable and rewarding as possible!

Previously I have worked as a tutor at Explore Learning in East Sheen, teaching maths and English to students between the ages of 5 and 14.

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

Tim's technique with my son is great. He knows how to get him to apply himself both mentally and physically. We have been able to solve Maths problems and build our speech confidence. My son looks forward to Maths because of Tim.

I found Tim to be punctual, well organised and polite and of course highly knowledgable in maths and English. He not only put my son at ease but made some of the lessons a lot of fun. After 6 months of tutoring twice a week, my son was ready and felt confident to sit the 11+ exams.
My son passed his exams with flying colours and got accepted into 2 top private schools. I would highly recommend Tim. Top marks!!!!
