    Does it matter what exam board my child is studying?
    No. The Science and Math doesn't change it is the same, it's the questions/topics that change depending upon the Scheme of Work being studied: so as long as your son/daughter learns all the science taught, then they will be capable of answering any question that arises. I have Examined for most exam boards at all Key stages, and tutored for all 3 Sciences including the new 9-1 Schemes of work that have just been released for 2017 onwards. For Math I have tutored successfully for KS2, KS3, GCSE: Edexcel and AQA.

    What if my child doesn't want to come on his/her own?
    They can come with their friends. I teach groups on a Sunday [£30 per child]. KS2 and 11+ only 09:00- 10:00. If you wish to bring a friend with you for GCSE tutoring the fees per student remain the same £35 per student due to the amount of work, knowledge and preparation that is required.

    How do I pay?
    You pay for each session in cash, the correct amount in an envelope please with your child's name on it, at the beginning of the session. Some parents prefer to pay in advance for blocks for lessons, which is absolutely fine. Again in an envelope with your child's name on it please. We do not accept cheques, Bank transfers and please don't expect us to carry change.

    Why are the terms and conditions so strict?
    This is my livelihood, you wouldn't like it if your boss turned round to you and said "I'm taking the day off today, so I'm not going to pay you!" So, the principle is the same. I have a waiting list of students that will be reliable and do want to attend sessions, so if you are not willing to adhere to the terms and conditions then you will lose you place to someone who is.

    Do you have DBS?
    Yes, I have Full Enhanced DBS certificates going back as far as 2004. I am a Tutor and therefore have no legal obligation to be DBS checked nor do I need to be a teacher.
I do everything myself
All materials, preparation and marking is done in my own time.
This should be respected and appreciated.
