Simon's biography:

Simon holds both a 2:1 BA Hons in Film Studies and Sociology and a PGCE in primary education. He has 3 A levels and 11 GCSEs. He is a 30 year old, fully qualified teacher, with experience in Years 3, 5 and 6. He has recently decided to pursue a career in tutoring and thus has resigned from his current year 6 post so that, as of September, he will be fully available as a tutor. He has experience tutoring 11+, and working with younger students on the 7+ examinations and has the ability to teach 13+ and even GCSE maths. Having already attained an A at GCSE he is currently studying for his A-Level in Maths too.

He has a strong grasp of both verbal and non-verbal reasoning, as well as having a particular strength in inspiring, encouraging and developing young and struggling writers. As someone who spends their free time writing books and short stories he regularly uses and adapts his own work to help children with their writing. This has been a very successful approach as it allows him to tap into the students interests and build on their strengths whilst trying to develop their weaknesses. He is committed to being a great teacher and prides himself on his work.

Simon's qualifications:

Simon qualified to teach Primary education in 2012, and holds a PGCE from University of Southampton.

Recent testimonials:

"Simon is an amazing tutor. He helped my daughter to get her confident back and made her smile again.

I tried different tutors but none of them worked for my daughter until Simon came along. She is now confident in numeracy and literacy and is happy again to go back to school.

Thank you for all your amazing work and help Simon."
