Personal Description:

Hi, my name is David. My role as tutor is to help students achieve their unique potential as independent learners through acknowledgement, encouragement, understanding, and personalised attention.

I excel at working with the brightest children (many from leading independent schools) who need to ensure they achieve the very highest grades. I have an excellent track record preparing children for 11+ and Common Entrance Examinations.

I look forward to helping your child reach their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

Communication and regular feedback with parents is essential. Tutoring is personal and your child is unique. This is so important for one-to-one tuition. (You can call me outside of lessons for advice and support).

One-to-one tutoring can truly accelerate learning and I have witnessed first hand the positive effects it can have not only in terms of academic improvement but also in confidence and self-esteem.

I am passionate about the importance of education and believe there is a 'key' to unlocking every child's potential. I build excellent rapport with students; I find that key.
