  About Michael
Dear Student / Parent, My name is Michael. I am a fully qualified teacher, and a very experienced, professional, friendly tutor of Maths and Physics to GCSE and A-Level. 1 to 1 tuition OR small group, 2 or 3 OR Exam Prep. packageI've been a secondary school teacher in the West of London and a private tutor of both Maths and Physics for 25+ years; and Head of Physics Department for 15 years; I am very familiar with the requirements of the main Exam Boards and the recent changes to their specifications in both Maths and Physics. I have taught students across the full ability range, students with moderate learning difficulties as well as those aiming to achieve top grades in GCSE and at A-Level. All of my advanced students have gone on to University, some to medical school and successful Oxford or Cambridge entrance. I have gained experience as an examiner and that has enabled me to guide my students more effectively in preparation for GCSE and A-Level exams. Over the last few years I have developed strategies, including Skype and the latest advances in technology, to carry out tuition online, so that I can share my knowledge and enthusiasm with a wider range of students who would benefit from my help. Please ask me for details of how I can make online tuition work for you. Get your free preliminary meeting (no cost, 30 minutes, no obligation) and see how it works.

  My Ratings & References
Christian S. (Customer review)
Reference from Christian's parents - my first online tutee ! Dear Michael, we wanted to write to you to express our thanks for the hard work and dedication you showed with regard to helping Christian receive an excellent GCSE result in Mathematics. There were many occasions where you demonstrated that teaching is about building empathy with the student and hitting that motivational hot button that spurs the student to push harder. We have no hesitation in recommending your teaching to other parents and students & Christian looks forward to the possibility of working with you again in the near future on a higher educational tier. With best wishes, Mark and Denise. 25.8.2015

Mary K. (Customer review)
Michael has tutored my son for his GCSE and AS level Physics. My son achieved a top grade A in his Physics AS level. My son said his teaching is excellent. Michael clearly has a passion for Physicsand my son told me how this made his lessons very interesting and motivating. He built my son’s confidence and gave him all the necessary Physics exam skills as well as a very strong subject knowledge. Michael’s commitment is outstanding. He is very reliable and gives regular and thorough feedback to parents. My friend’s daughter had Michael as a tutor when retaking her Physics and moved from a D to a B with his support. Michael has excellent subject knowledge and his years of experience have benefitted my son greatly. I have always found Michael to be professional, courteous and supportive. Mary K.

Hi Michael This is to let you know that Leon attained a Level 7 in his November 2017 Maths GCSE exams. As you know, we were hoping for a grade 6 as he achieved a 5 in the summer so we are absolutely delighted with today's result. Thank you so much - he couldn't have done it without you! Kind regards, Lindsay

A. P. (Customer review)
8th April.2018 Hi Michael please accept my apologies for delay in responding to you? A. is finding your online lessons very useful. His grades at school have improved and he is now actually predicted an A – IF he continues to work. I still don’t think he likes the subject but is definitely getting extra practice, help and support through your weekly lessons. As a parent I like the notes you provide and the promptness at which you send these on. I also like the way you mark the papers using an online pen. You were the first online tutor I have experienced and would like to say how impressed I am with this method as it is saving us both valuable time. Since having your lesson A. is having a few other online tuition lessons in other subjects. Michael, I would highly recommend you as a tutor and wish I had found you earlier. Thank you for the support that you are providing. Wishing you well. Regards Bh.

From online student in China ! 14th April 2018 I couldn't have asked for a better review ! Hello Michael, I’m so sorry these days were pretty busy. I did not reply your e-mail in time. I really like your online method, I can easily get points of different conceptions. For me that is a really big step. I really enjoy the lessons. Your elaborated preparations made every lesson so fun and meaningful. I used to be afraid of physics, but now I think it is getting more and more interesting. I benefited a lot from the lessons. For your online lessons, I think everything is perfect. Thank you very much for teaching me well. Best Wishes, Shirley

Max likes the sessions with you and likes doing it online. Considering he got a 3 for his mocks and is now getting a secure 5 and perhaps with a push he could scrape a 6 we feel the sessions are really paying off. Cheers, Jane. 6th April 2018
