This is how 2 referees rated Dan:
Deputy Headteacher and fully qualified Geography teacher at a very high performing comprehensive school in West London (top 10% nationally for value added). Senior Examiner for a leading Awarding Organisation, author of a wide range of leading GCSE and A Level Geography textbooks, revision guides and exam materials. Chartered Geographer (Teacher) of the Royal Geographical Society, member of the Geographical Association’s Post 16 Committee and DfE Specialist Leader of Education (Geography).
I have excellent experience at developing exam technique and boosting exam performance to ensure that my tutees achieve at the very highest level. I provide a wide range of suitable and challenging resources, including past papers and mark schemes. As an exceptional tutor, I feel that it is very important to be accessible to my tutees throughout the week and to be an advisor to parents. I can be contacted throughout the week and I also can email any extra resources that are needed.
As a tutor I have a high success rate and have many happy and contented clients who go on to recommend me to other people. I take tutoring very seriously and expect that cancellations are only made if there is an emergency because weekly sessions need to take place for a student to progress and succeed to the best of their ability. I am usually booked up quickly and would recommend being contacted as early as possible for bookings for the following term so that I can accommodate you. I also tutor most holiday times.
Highly skilled and passionate Geography teacher with over 20 years teaching experience at several OFSTED Outstanding secondary schools. I am enhanced DBS checked with a proven track record, by motivating students to achieve their full potential, of excellent examination results at both GCSE and A Level.
Fully versed in the new specifications at both GCSE and A Level I have excellent subject knowledge and worked as part of the team designing some of the new specifications.
Many of my students go on to study Geography at many of the top Universities including Oxford and Cambridge.
I tutor on a one-to-one basis because I believe in a completely personalised approach. Usually my sessions are an hour long, but this can be extended. I provide tuition for a range of GCSE and A Level Geography specifications and give lots of pastoral support in addition to academic support. Both go hand in hand for academic success.
I work in Uxbridge and live near Staines and am happy to travel to provide tuition around these areas.

Dan provided excellent revision notes, and in 4x1hr sessions in the Easter holidays he showed her how to excel in data response questions, gave background on Development isssues relating to the pre-release topic and gave her the confidence to go for **Web Address Removed** sit the exams in June.
Without Dan's excellent tutoring my daughter would not have secured an A in her A level and probably not even have had the confidence to sit the exam.
Dan would also have been happy to provide online marking of essays etc.
Thanks again! Debbie S
