Paul is a wonderful, professional and attentive teacher.
He tutored both my sister and I in biology and always arrived on time for every single session. He is a positive teacher who is great at explaining what you do not understand and takes his in making sure you fully comprehend the work at hand. Paul uses many different and exciting techniques that allowed me to fully engage with the topic and helped me remember everything I needed to know for my exam.
I not only learnt a great deal on the subject which helped me get a fantastic grade in my results, but I even eventually thoroughly enjoyed biology and I have Paul to thank for that!
Subject: Biology Outcome: I improved by two grades in my A-Level results!

Paul is an excellent tutor. He taught my son A level Chemistry and Biology. He is enthusiastic and lively. My son, being a typical teenager, didn't want a tutor but changed his mind when Paul come round to teach him.
He has a wealth of teaching materials/past papers and is able to engage the student well. We can recommend him.
Subject: Chemistry Outcome: My son achieved the required A level grades needed to study an Ocean Science degree at university.

Excellent Tutor for Science
I have know Paul for over 6 years and found him to be highly experienced in his field of tutoring/teaching. He is very professional, yet friendly in his approach. He is able to identify students' strengths, weaknesses and learning style swiftly, to advise and implement the most appropriate mode of teaching that is best tailored to the individual student. By using this technique, he was a superb tutor for my daughter; I would recommend him to any parent/s or student that is serious about their academic progression.
Subject: Science Outcome: My daughter's confidence in learning Science grew, she achieved A* in GCSE Additional Science and A in Core Science. She went on to study A-level Sciences and has now obtained a Science degree.

Paul undertook regular weekly tutorials with my daughter who at that time was taking Biology AS and A2. He was focused. He knew the curriculum and the changes in the examination requirements very well. He had an exceptional skill at assessing the strengths and the weaknesses in a child's understanding of the subject matter. He was flexible giving additional tutorials before the examination. Paul assisted my daughter in developing study skills and most importantly, confidence in her ability to successfully navigate this subject
Subject: Biology Outcome: She attained an A in AS and in A2
I like to create a relaxed and friendly environment where the student feels free to answer - as a wrong answer is usually more informative as to how a student perceives a subject rather than a correct one! If concept perception is a problem I can use many different teaching styles ( on average 5) to convey that topic from different angles. I can readily identify a student's weakness and work on this. I am excellent at installing confidence in a student by either revisiting and/or strengthening their weaknesses. Developing examination technique is my forte. I am firm but considerate.
Students tend to like me a lot! I have a caring and sensitive nature to my tutoring. My many years of classroom teacher and tutoring means that your child only gets the best.

Thank you Paul.
He is a first class command of his subject,an excellent tutor and I highly recommend him.
A witty funny and very intelligent young man!
Best for the future Rupert
With no previous experience in these subjects (apart from GCSE which was a lifetime ago), Paul was able to very quickly make me grab concepts of these subjects and in a very short space of time have a foundation to build on.
One major quality which Paul has is to be able to identify exactly how a person responds to different ways of receiving information and therefore the most efficient way to make them retain information. Even though I was taking subjects which I had little idea of, and even though (I'm sure Paul would agree) I'm not always the easiest person to teach I found myself picking things up much quicker than I had imagined I would.
The way that Paul's lessons are structured mean that you get real value for money. I was taking two hour lessons and there is not a moment inn that time in which I was not learning something. It was all done in a very patient manner too; if there was something I did not understand we would stop and go over it again in a different way.
I could not recommend Paul more highly to anyone, just for the simple reason that if he can make me learn all of this with such ease, I can imagine he'd make others fly through the material.
essentially so far helping fill in the gaps in the curriculum that Felix did not fully understand.
Paul is enthusiastic, approachable, kind and very importantly he knows what he is talking about
he has a good grasp of the curriculum and knows what is expected at this level.
He is very experienced in teaching and he works hard to ensure that each topic is understood.
My sons confidence and enthusiasm for the subject has already increased.
Dr. Paul tutored our daughter for just a few months in AS2 Biology and Chemistry prior to her final exams. During that time we noticed that her confidence in those subjects increased. Dr. Paul explains things in a clear and matter-of-fact way and ensures that the student understands before moving on. His knowledge of these subjects and teaching experience will help your child to achieve the best grades they can. Our daughter found him easy to talk to and we heard a degree of laughter, which shows that Dr. Paul takes pains to occasionally lighten up the tutoring process!
Our daughter did well in her subjects and is now at university studying Biomedical Science. Thank you, Dr. Paul.
Lauren's mum and dad.
your daughter is a pleasure to teach.
