Hi! I am an accomplished Maths and Physics tutor with over 7 years experience tutoring at both school and university level. I work with various age groups. All of my GCSE students to date have passed their exams much to my delight and my younger students are continually building their confidence.
I like to provide a comfortable and encouraging atmosphere for the students.
As a qualified engineer (BEng 1st class hons) I am well versed in the subjects. I'm also a musician and take the student's other interests seriously as well. I take an encouraging and flexible teaching approach, helping to improve the student’s motivation as well as knowledge in a subject. I always keep parents informed with progress and am very transparent with my lessons.
I am an adaptable teacher and work hard to understand the students; back when I was in high school I felt I got average grades until in my final year, several of my teachers changed. My grades sky-rocketed and it made me realise how important the role of the teacher is in improving a student's confidence and ability. All students are capable. I have enjoyed tutoring ever since and always get a kick out of helping.
Feel free to get in touch. I am very approachable and fully CRB checked. Please note that if you're outside of Brighton I have no car so may ask you for a small amount extra for travel time/expenses. This can be negotiated when you get in contact.

I tailor my approach to each student individually. I'll use the first lesson to work out the individual goals of the student so I can construct a plan to help achieve these aims. I encourage students to learn the basic concepts and reinforce their knowledge so they can work out problems on their own. I like to work with the student to achieve understanding rather than rote learning.
I also like to be available either by email or phone as much as possible if the student is struggling with homework or just basic concepts and always go that extra mile to ensure the students are seeing the results they want to achieve. Skype lessons are also available at a discounted rate.

He has improved my son's confidence, enjoyment and grades in Maths.
My daughter has just completed her maths GCSEs' and she felt that Jacks' tutoring was a very beneficial aid.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Jack. He was always punctual, personable and maintained very good communications.
Jack comes to all lessons well prepared and gives an much additional homework as is required as well as recommending links to websites and past papers
My daughter is extremely happy with his lessons. I would thoroughly recommend Jack for all levels and abilities. We can't thank him enough for all his help
Many thanks for all your help & support Jack.
After his very first lesson with my daughter I noticed a marked improvement in her attitude towards Maths as a subject and she continues to noticeably gain in confidence after every consecutive week of Jack's tutoring.
Jack has a very calming, down to earth teaching approach and a great sense of humour, my daughter obviously likes and respects him (which is an achievement in itself !) Her Maths teacher has also commented on how she is more attentive in her school lessons and her work and attitude has substantially improved.
Jack is always very quick to respond to emails or texts, has super reliable time keeping and he is a very trustworthy person. I highly recommend him.
