Personal Description:

I am a B.Sc. and Ph.D. qualified Mathematician with many years tutoring experience from KS2 through to GCSE, A-level and adult students.

I provide home tuition in Exmouth, Exeter and the surrounding areas. I am DBS-checked and charge a basic hourly rate of £20. I pride myself on my friendly and easy-going manner, my ability to quickly establish a rapport and a good working relationship with families and students and have excellent results with my students.

Please see below for some recent feedback and reviews from parents and students.

Tutoring Experience:

I have around 5 years of private tuition experience and 7 years experience working in secondary school Maths departments. I have tutored across a wide age/ability range from KS2 through to GCSE, A-level, adult students and undergraduates.

Tutoring Approach:

I pride myself on my friendly and easy-going manner and my ability to quickly establish a rapport and a good working relationship with families and students. I believe success in tuition is achieved by keeping students engaged and by having a range of methods/strategies available for each topic such that the student can find for themselves the most suitable method for them.

Some recent feedback from parents and students,

"My Y6 daughter has increased in confidence with Maths enormously from the lessons that she had with Simon. The pace and content of Simon's lessons allowed her to consolidate and build on her existing math knowledge whilst enjoying herself. She was even heard to exclaim 'Maths is fun!' a few times, a phrase which she had never uttered before. I would not hesitate to recommend Simon and would happily call on his services again." (Year 6 student)

"Simon engaged really well with Charley. He boosted her confidence and provided great support. Really appreciate all you did for Charley, Simon. I would definitely recommend your tutoring - worth every penny and every obligatory mug of hot chocolate!" (Year 11 student)

"Simon helped our daughter who was failing her maths and was on course to get a C. Since getting him on board, her confidence came back and the results today proved it - a solid A which means she gets onto her first choice at college. Cannot thank Simon enough and chances are we'll be back for the next round" (Year 11 student)

"Simon was patient with my daughter, built her confidence and brought her GCSE targets grades up massively!" (Year 11 student)

"Simon is an incredibly helpful, nice and down to earth guy who has been a big help to me over the past year. He helped me get through fast-tracking A-Level Further Maths and thanks to him I ended up getting an A. Thanks a lot Simon!" (A-level student)

"Our son was a failing A level maths student and really wanted to succeed. Simon taught him and today he got an A star and his first choice University to study Maths and Physics. Thank you so much Simon" (A-level student)

“Thank you for all your help this year with maths for our daughter her confidence has grown massively in the subject and has now moved up a set all thanks to you making it fun and making learning the subject more enjoyable really grateful … wish you lots more success” (Year 8 student)

“A very good tutor currently helping me with my A-level Maths. Would highly recommend” (A-level student)

"Simon's home tuition has helped my 11 year old daughter immensely. From being in a bottom maths group through lack of confidence and just complete blind panic when the subject was raised she has just completed her SATS with a level 5 result and whilst she's never going to love maths SImon has shown her and given her the confidence to know she can do it! He's patient,thoroughly supportive,pointing out only the positives. I am in no doubt that she would not have achieved this level without him! Highly highly recommended!" (Year 6 student)

“Simon has been great in helping my 16 year old son gain confidence and understanding with his GCSE maths syllabus. My son enjoys his teaching style which is relaxed and friendly but at the same time gets things done, with really clear explanations” (Year 11 student)

"Simon was a first-class tutor who provided excellent and structured tutoring for what was a very niche and unique project. I would recommend highly to any graduate who needs help getting over the line in online application maths tests. Thank you Simon!" (University undergraduate)

"Simon makes learning maths fun using a variety of approaches that kids love. Reliable and friendly cant recommend enough" (Year 5 student)

"such a good and responsible teacher. He has just taught my daughter and she has improved a lot recently. I really appreciate him teaching her" (Year 8 student)

"highly recommend. My 14 year old daughter is now happy learning Maths - say no more!" (Year 10 student)

“Just want to say a big thankyou Simon for all the help you have given Jake over the past year. He has always been well below average in his maths but this year he got a 4B in his SATS which he is so happy with as being bang on average. You have really helped him understand things better and he always looks forward to your lessons. Jake has always struggled with his school work and I think this will give him a big boost. Thankyou again and will always recommend you to people.” (Year 6 student)

“We can't praise you enough, your tuition took Ed from getting U in mocks to an overall B at AS level it was combined of two A marks and a C. He most certainly couldn't of done it without you, look forward to seeing you again in the new term. Thank you” (A-level student)

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for all you have done for Phoenix with her Maths. A level 5 is fantastic and that's down to you for teaching Phoenix and Phoenix for listening … great teamwork” (Year 6 student)

“Simon has been teaching my 13 year old daughter for 7 months now, her confidence in maths has grown massively. My daughter is in a low set maths class in secondary school due to having a Gremlin in her tummy about this subject, the best thing we could have done was to employ Simon to give her a helping hand. My daughter is now thriving to better herself in maths (and is now hoping to go up a set), thanks to Simon's relaxed method of teaching. We actually can't thank him enough for what he has done. Thanks you Simon for all your hard work!” (Year 8 student)

“Simon has helped our son to gain more confidence in maths. He is doing much better at school now thanks to the extra tuition. Thank you for making maths fun and enjoyable!” (Year 4 student)
