Information About William - Liss tutor - (13 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated William:
I'm a professional tutor with ten years experience based in Liss near Petersfield in Hampshire offering tuition in maths and physics. I hold a first class degree in Physics from the University of Surrey, am a Chartered Physicist and have an up to date DBS check.
Since graduating I spent 20 years working in a variety of technical fields including software, nuclear fusion and sonar. I've been providing private tuition since 2008 but in 2010 (then aged 42) I decided to take a career break to devote more time to tutoring. This has proved very successful and I now work as a full-time tutor and have no intentions of returning to my old career!
My hobbies include running, cycling, hill walking with my wife in Scotland and hiking in New Zealand (sadly not as often as I would like!).
I have been providing private tuition in maths and physics for ten years. I follow the school cirriculum and cover all the major exam boards for GCSE and A level and can also help with related qualifications such as IGCSE, IB and Scottish Highers etc.
Over the years I've assisted over 100 students covering a vast range of abilities. Some students may be struggling with their GCSE maths and need some extra support to get them back up to speed and boost their confidence in the subject. Other students may already be very capable but want to maximise their chances of achieving a top grade.
I'm also experienced in providing online tuition using a skype video link and an interactive shared whiteboard. This allows you to enjoy your tutorial from the comfort of your own home and is a real option if you are not in my area.
My approach to tutoring is to ensure that sessions are interactive and enjoyable. I try to create a relaxed atmosphere, develop a positive rapport with my students and encourage questions. I make sure that my students understand the fundamental principles behind the material, this then makes the subsequent detail much easier to comprehend and remember. For specific exam preparation I believe the best strategy is to work through past paper questions (which I can provide).

I would definitely recommend William as a tutor, not only was he an excellent teacher, he was also very keen to help me at all times. Whether it was a late night email with a question I couldn't do or in a few instances needing a bit of help with maths so splitting the session between Maths & physics.
Overall I'm very pleased I got the opportunity to be taught by William, I know he'll give his all to each & every student.
He has helped Charlie prepare to resit his 3 AS maths papers from last year as well as prepare for his Maths and Physics A2s this summer. William is supremely organised and has a lesson plan for every hour. If Charlie brings other questions from his lessons that week, William can quickly find relevant material, questions and explanations to help him. He has been 100% reliable: has never cancelled a lesson, is always on time and has helped Charlie understand things that he hadn't grasped before. We can recommend him without hesitation.
We have come back to William with our youngest for some more help with A level Maths! Brilliant tutor, can highly recommend!
A very impressive gentleman and highly recommended to any one requiring effective professional approach of additional tutoring
