I do not charge for the first session ,as I use this to get to know the student and parents. On the first session we discuss what interventions are required to accelerate the child's learning.

Every lesson is £25 00 per hour thereafter.I also ask for mileage if over 5 miles from Bridgwater.

Tell me about some of your current students.
I have been tutoring for over 5 years. Some of my students have complex needs and I have supported the parents in getting them the support required, so they can make good progress and receive the correct provision. Often, I have written educational assessments to support the statementing process. All my students gain confidence, learn and make good progress; some moving as much as 1 level within a six month period. I have also had a good pass rate with GCSE Maths and English. My students enjoy me coming and they say it is fun. Please read their comments. We work in a multi-sensory way. Working with the schools gives the child more chance of success, as we can work in tandem. This year all of my GCSE students have achieved their grades, which they were working towards. Achieved 2016 100 per cent pass rate.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Stay focused. Try your personal best . Enjoy and Achieve.
