Information About Tommy - Coatbridge tutor - (4 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Tommy:
Live in Bargeddie but due to family spend a lot of time in Carluke and Lanark so G69 and ML8 and ML11 postcodes ideal. My subjects are Maths, Chemistry and Physics and love passing my enthusiasm on to my students. My first student was in the lowest half of the lowest section for Maths. She is now in the top three of the top level. This buzz convinced me to be a teacher. I take great pride in the success my students have enjoyed including sharing my passion for my subjects which in many cases has actually led to the students choosing that subject as a career. Travelling is not an issue and unlike other tutors the hourly rate includes travelling expenses. I've been asked why am I the cheapest available considering the outstanding reviews. The answer is simply that I don't do this for money. I tend to spend a couple of hours preparing each lesson and homework for each individual student. So overall I'm charging approximately £8 and hour including travel.
I have tutored students in Maths, Physics and Chemistry since graduating from The University of Glasgow in 1994. I now realise I have a passion and aptitude for this and will start my qualification course in August.
I quickly realised that many successful students are students that enjoy or develop a passion for the subjects I teach. I work hard to ensure that my enthusiasm rubs off on my students. From experience, I find that this is half the battle. I enjoy meeting students who tell me ' I hate maths or physics or Chemistry' or ' I'm rubbish at it and I don't understand it so what's the point'. I aim quickly to change this attitude and take great delight when I achieve this important target. Started my latest batch in Christmas. Deliberately took on some
Students that the school wanted to pull from final exam prelims. One had failed their Higher Maths by a fair chunks and was told they couldnt do their Higher . However, he had another
Assessment last week. Only had time to cover 2 of the 5 topics. Got over 70% including 90-100% for the 2 I had taught. The other 3 will be covered over next week or two. Suddenly school telling student involved he should be looking at more than just a pass and shifted student up a section. Several weeks before, they wanted to the exam done over 2 years. People ask why I charge in
Some case 1/2 that of others. The above is the reason. What a buzz. I spend a couple of hours preparing each lesson for each individual according to their ability and requirements. So my cost works out at £8 per hours as costs includes all travelling, resources and printing material. I also offer to help students by answering question via Whatsapp or Messenger. All this is inclusive. 24 hour standby lol. All the best to everyone.
