- How much do you charge?

For 121 normally charge a fixed fee upwards from £30/hr but can offer discount for regular clients. I charge upwards from £45 for a 2hr session in any one sitting.
I can accommodate more students in a lesson and will offer a discount where possible. I am flexible with my client payment arrangements.
I also tutor ONLINE service which is cheaper than the 121 rate.

- Where do you teach?

Usually travel / drive to client's home but sometimes use other venues, e.g. libraries and local college campus if this is what suits the client more.
Districts I cover mainly West Lothian and Edinburgh regions: Livingston, Falkirk, Shotts, Wishaw, Penicuik, South Queensferry (I don't cover Fife sorry).

- When are you available?

Available generally from 12 noon Mon-Fri and work right up to 10pm.
Weekend Saturdays and Sundays from 10am through to 7pm.
I also provide tuition over the school holidays, summer and Easter recess.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I generally only teach senior students, S3 and above at school.
I also tutor young adults (17+) and more mature students at college or university.
My university tuition is in U/G Year1 and Year2 only.
Post-graduates may be considered depending on what it is they need lessons.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

School leaving certificates: National5, Intermediate, Higher, Advanced Higher, GCSE, GCE, IB and University Entrance (e.g. STEP).

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I tutor by pre-arranged time using Skype and Scribblar web-collaboration service- these are generally free to use for the client (except for my tuition fee of course).
It only requires a desktop, laptop or tablet with the Skype app loaded and a reasonably good internet connection speed for the session.
We agree a day-time for the session and I txt by sms to your phone just before to initiate the lesson. Payment is usually by Bank Draft (BACs) or Paypal.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

It is of the utmost importance that the student gets all the support and encouragement to advance their career and enter further/higher education in their chosen fields. Any tutoring I give will always put the student's interest first above all other considerations. I will also encourage the student to look further than the restricted options in the curriculum and take a genuine academic interest in their subject.

Course taught purely by tutor. Not a subject taken at school. Considering the limited teaching time was very pleased with the result. Would definately recommend this tutor for physics. - Higher Physics
