Information About Harold - Knebworth tutor - (36 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Harold:
Worked in medical physics industry, then took up teaching. Now retired from full time lecturing. Involved in alternative energy and sustainable lifestyle.
25 years full time lecturing/ teaching at colleges of further education and latterly part time at teaching at university. For some years since retiring I have been tutoring A level at home; Physics, Pure Maths, and Mechanics. More recently I have been helping undergrads in various branches of engineering, physics and maths.
I help students to gain confidence developing what they already know into competence at their desired level. Knowledge and work produced become the students own achievement rather than something I have "taught" them.
I mainly work with exam type problems, helping students fill in any gaps in background knowledge as we go.

response over the first two sessions.
My son ended up with a B. He was just about to give the subject up before he started working with Harold. His school had prjected him an E grade at best.
Harold has great way of teaching which encourages the student to think for themself which really increasesvtheir confidence.
Would strongly recomend him.
Thoroughly recommend . If there was a ten score he would get it.
He explains the subject in a way that my son understands.
He is very organised with how he works questions out and some of the techniques he has tought me are working like a dream
