To whomever may be reading this, my name is Tomi and I am an astrophysics graduate turned tutor, specialising in teaching Maths, Sciences and Acoustic Guitar. Having been through GCSE and A-level exams, I understand the perspective of a student in the position of trying to achieve good results and can relate to difficulties in these subjects. Because of this, I know how to explain challenging topics from their core concepts and apply them in practice questions.
As a lifelong learner of myself, I have gained experience in continually surpassing my own expectations and going beyond my limits. I find that I'm able to share this experience with others and help them overcome their own endevours.
Tomi is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
Over 4 years ago during the middle of studying for my astrophysics degree, I began tutoring for the first time and fell in love with it. Since then, I have personally helped over 50 people across London and Sheffield learn and master subjects that they were once not confident with. Having been through GCSE and A-level exams, I understand the perspective of a student in the position of trying to achieve good results and can relate to difficulties in these subjects. For anyone struggling to understand concepts in Science and Maths, I’m able break down big ideas and better explain them in a way that consolidates understanding. From a young age, I have also been largley self-taught in playing the Acoustic Guitar and the Piano. People often ask me; how do you get good at something that seems difficult to do? I always say it’s a delicate mixture of practice and patience.

Perfect! My son hated maths before being tutored by Tomi, but that has now changed he says Tomi explains things easily so he can understand.
He is extremely encouraging and patient. He ensures that you completely understand the topics before moving on and he also brings in resources to help better your understanding. Timi Allows you to bring topics that you didn’t understand in school to better your knowledge. Very kind and polite as well as efficient. He has helped me a lot in maths and I no longer struggle how I did before, I was very confident when doing my exams due to his tutoring.
Tomi is a very humble, patient and thoughtful tutor.
My son had been tutored by Tomi during lockdown once a week, then we moved to three times a week for a few months.
He's classes are always worthwhile and has a amazing way of breaking down this so that my son can understand.
He always keep the session fun and they are always engaging for him.
He also importantly has a great mixture of listening, practical learning and speaking.
My son is always excited when he has his sessions.
Tomi was my piano teacher. He made every lesson different and interesting, but at the same time very effective and productive. He's a great tutor who helped me make tremendous progress with piano through the grades. Of all the tutors I've had, I felt that Tomi was the one who understood me best and suited his style of teaching to me.
Unlike most tutors, Tomi actually listens and takes his time to explain whatever you don’t understand, especially the particularly difficult topics. During the first lockdown, I was struggling with A-level maths & mechanics revision. I found it hard to transition to studying online until I came across Tomi who massively helped me all the way until my entry year at uni and left me well prepared for my Engineering degree.
Tomi tutored me in mathematics and physics and is definitely one of the main reasons I managed to achieve CCB in my A levels after getting DDE in my mocks. I found that I benefited a lot from having a younger tutor because he had studied what I was studying only a couple of years before. This meant that he was far more familiar with what I was going through than the other tutors I tried which was very confidence boosting for me as a struggling student and i also found that because of his understanding it made it far easier for him to explain things to me in a way I’d understand. With the other tutors I tried (who were generally older), I found a lot of them were not clear on everything I needed to know and some of their methods were a bit outdated because the GCSE and A level curriculums have changed a lot in recent years. With Tomi this was not an issue because he had studied exactly what I was studying just a few years before. Tomi is an excellent tutor and I’d highly recommend him to anyone that could do with some help in their studies!
Tomi is a very reliable and personable tutor. He explains things clearly and thoroughly. He has been very helpful with A level Physics and Maths. I would recommend him to any student. - Michitae H
Excellent tutor. Did a great job tutoring my partially sighted son in science.
Tommy built up a good tutor tutee relationship and taught in a way that made it easy to understand.
As a result he achieved strong grades in all three sciences. Highly recommend

Tomi is an excellent tutor. Tomi enabled my child to gain confidence in the subject my son was struggling on by his expert knowledge on the subject. Tomi helped my son on his weak points, made him understand how to work out and understand maths a lot better then before. My son is now doing so well! I highly recommend Tomi as a tutor. Best decision I ever made.
Tomi gave maths tuitions to my daughters and we were all satisfied with his work. He was polite and punctual, his explanations were clear and the girls managed to make good progress thanks to the tuitions. I would recommend him as he knows how to motivate students he is, working with. Lynn
Tomi is a great tutor, he helped me get from a predicted grade 3 for my GCSE science to a grade 6 and no matter the time or day he is always willing to help
