Information About Paul - Southport tutor - (23 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Paul:
*I have now been in the teaching profession for two decades; having built up my experience in all three of the educational sectors : private school / state / private tutoring and have successfully taught hundreds of students; successfully guiding them through their academic careers.
*I am a naturally well organised and structured teacher, being myself the product of a seven year grammar school education; going on to university and then obtaining my teaching qualification, whilst also getting married and having children.
*In my opinion the (guiding principle) foundation purpose of education - the golden rule so to speak, is to develop each student to their fullest potential.
*How is this then achieved ?
*The best student to teacher ratio (achievable in a classroom) is a ratio of 1 : 1 and this is found only with private tutelage ( which therefore naturally creates the best teaching environment in which a student can learn and develop their fullest potential).
*As a 1 : 1 student, you will always have the undivided attention of the teacher; you can learn and set your own pace, rather than just being rushed through a topic, whether you understand it or not.
* Lesson plans are always individually tailored, structured and targeted to your required needs.
*The skill of teaching is simply the power of explanation and structuring.
*The better the explanation and structure, the better the teacher.
*I am happy to explain my educational approach in more detail face to face if you are kind enough to purchase my details.
*In my teaching experience,when a student is asked why they have difficulties with a certain subject, they will inevitably respond that they dislike the subjects that they do not understand and have no structure for.
* If this confusion and lack of structure is allowed to persist, then with the passage of time, the student in question simply switches off (intellectually) and the damage is done.
*The solution is simple : supply a proper explanation and structure and then the healing process (academically) can then begin.
*I am a professional teacher, (DBS checked) with twenty years experience, having taught all age groups (ranging from primary school to those over 65+ years of age).
*I provide a friendly and relaxed educational environment in which students (young or old) are able to concentrate and develop their full potential.
*I have an excellent reputation in my local area as a professional tutor, with a client base of happy parents whose children I have taught.
*Education (and my approach to tutoring) involves a gold standard (which applies to any age group, topic taught or level involved) and it is split into 3 distinct parts.
*A for Understanding
*B for Memory Recall
*C for Application of Knowledge
*As a private tutor, it is my responsibility to make sure that each topic being taught is properly explained and that the student in question has a written note that is clear, concise and formatted, so that it is of use for their future revision… *As each layer of knowledge is acquired it must always be :
*1. Understood (clearly), 2.Recalled (accurately) and then 3.Applied (properly).
*The ABC principles are thus the gold standard in education and we will never be fully educated until we have mastered and acknowledged all 3 principles.

Paul is very reliable and always arrives on time. His teaching technique seems to work well and we are completely satisfied with Simon’s progress.
We highly recommend Paul and we will probably continue to use him for some years to come, as we also have a younger son.
I feel strongly that my son would make progress significantly with help of Paul
I would highly recommend Paul to others
I have sent an email to Paul to verify the meeting but havent had a confirmation yet… Can you please chase it?
Rob and Rachel Hulme
I would definetly recommend him to others.
