- 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!
Timothy is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been providing one-to-one tuition since October 2013. I specialise in key stage 2 maths and English, as well as for entrance exams preparations up to and including 11+. I have also provided private tuition to students key stage 1 and 3, also in maths and English. 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?
£35 per hour. £15 for every additional half an hour within one session. £20 for a half hour session. Online sessions charged at a flat rate of £30 per hour. First session or meeting free.
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.
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!!!!
