Below are some of my proudest tutoring achievements in my 10+ years of tutoring.
"Jake was exactly what I was looking for. Jake is extremely amiable and I looked forward to every lesson. Some of my teachers’ explanations at school never seemed to quite click with me, but Jake’s explanations always made sense and stuck straight away. I most definitely recommend Jake as a tutor. Jake is a brilliant tutor and also happens to be a lovely person." - A level Maths Student
"I honestly couldn't have done as well as I did without your brilliant style of teaching and the great patience that you have. I just want to thank you for all of your immense help and support in preparation for my A-Level maths exams." - A-level Maths Student
"Absolutely delighted to have found Jake. He is a reliable, dedicated and fabulous tutor who has put the smile back on my daughter's face when it comes to physics. He is extremely professional and takes time to understand the individual so that he can tailor the tutoring. First class." - Parent of A-level Student
"I cannot recommend Jake highly enough as a tutor. Within a month his grades improved, his attitude towards the subject became positive, his confidence in his ability was much higher and he was "getting it". Jake is absolutely fantastic at tuning into the problems the kids are having and draws out of them which topics exactly cause problems for them and uses approaches that suit each individual's learning method. He's in short excellent at his job and a nice guy the kids relate to too" - Parent of GCSE Maths Sutdent
I have taught over 7000 hours of one-to-one lessons to students of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, both in-person and online. I work in the UK and abroad and for the last six years tutoring has been my life. I also have experience working directly in schools: I was hired by an academy in the North of England to undertake interventions with Year 13 in preparation Physics A level. Throughout the COVID pandemic I provided academic support to students of all ages including preparation for exams and Teacher Assessed Grades. In 2019 I tutored privately in Beijing and in 2022 assisted a student from Singapore with her application to elite UK schools.
One of the keys to successful tuition is transparency. My goal is to make sure that both student and parent are clear on the current status of the student, their work ethic, the grade they can expect and what they need to do to improve it. By aiming for open and honest conversation about the student’s progress we give ourselves the best chance at success.
With over 7000 hours experience I have seen a huge variety of student types and have learned a corresponding variety of techniques to teach them. Multiple approaches to each topic can be used to find a method that is suitable for each student. I have supported students online through the coronavirus pandemic, working toward both teacher-assessed grades and in 2022 the return to standardised examinations.
I provide support outside lessons by email, text and phone to deal with urgent issues, both academic and pastoral. I can also provide prep work/homework between lessons from an extensive resource library to assist with independent study.
I am also keen to emphasise that I try to offer moral support as well as academic. Exam periods can be a stressful and challenging time in a young person's life and so I like to make sure that my students are happy and comfortable with everything that is happening, as well as successful.
