Information About Adam - Norwich tutor - (21 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Adam:
Computer Studies / I.T.
I am 46 years old and married with children.
Professional, experienced, diligent, patient and personable!
20 years full time teaching experience from 11-19 and adult tuition.
I am an Advanced Skills Teacher and I enjoy helping my students get excellent results.
I teach ICT, Geography and Computer Science (Computing) at KS3, GCSE and A Level and Maths at GCSE.
I am an experienced exam marker and work for the three leading awarding bodies at GCSE, A Level and Functional Skills.
I plan thoroughly after assessing each individual student's needs. I listen carefully to requirements or find these out very quickly when students are unsure about exactly what help they need. Whilst I want students to achieve good results at a fast pace, deepening understanding is important.
I provide very focussed help with coursework in ICT/GEOG/COMPUTER SCIENCE including project ideas, data collection and project design - helping students get started on the right project is key to their success and I have loads of ideas.
I teach to whatever learning styles a student has - and tailor my resources or create new ones to ensure sessions are challenging and engaging.
It goes without saying that a key part of tutoring for many students is to improve their examination performance. This obviously requires improving knowledge and understanding of the course content and subject material but exam technique plays an enormous role in applying what a student knows. My experience as a teacher and as an examiner allow me to give students the skills they need to succeed in deciphering and answering questions to achieve the highest marks.

|Tutees Providing Positive Feedback:|
Adam has boosted Gus' self esteem and confidence as well as supporting him academically.
He is responsive, communicative, knowledgable and helpful , all the attributes a great tutor needs.
Adam also gives plenty of feedback about how the tutoring sessions are going.
You were offended by the request for advance payment, saying you preferred to pay after the lesson and I did say that this was not how I manage my tuition payment.
You also said that you were unable to do a Tuesday now as you had arranged other tuition and had other commitments at this time. I emailed you a copy of our conversation from First Tutors IT where it clearly showed that we had agreed to have a session on Tuesday. I explained that I have tutees every other day, I had kept the agree day and time free since we originally confirmed this. I also offered you an alternative session on a Monday as well as a weekend if that was easier for you. You said you were unable to do any other time than a Wednesday which is the reason you had to find another tutor rather than the reason you stated which was my terms of payment. You say "Sadly a bad experience". Not so. From my point of view I kept a slot available for you which I could (and now have) filled with another tutee.
I have over 50 happy tutees since I have been using First Tutors and First Tutors IT and I have never had anything less than wholly positive feedback from any of them. Had you kept the Tuesday time free there would not have been a problem.
REASON FOR CANCELLATION: Client unable to attend originally agreed time and day.
Would highly recommend.

Although my son has only had a couple of sessions with Adam as yet, he has found his input very helpful.
Adam always follows up the session via e-mail and is willing to answer questions and give back up inbetween sessions aswell.
I've been very impressed with the help Adam has given to my son.
