Phil's biography:

Phil studied Environmental Science at the University of Southampton before going on to do his PGCE at the University of Birmingham. He began his teaching career in 2002 and has now amassed 14 years teaching experience, teaching in some of the top schools (in both the private and state sectors and also internationally). His recent post (of 6 years) was teaching science and maths to Common Entrance 13+ at Westminster Cathedral Choir Prep School in London where pupils consistently achieved excellent results enabling them to go on to some of the leading schools in the country. Indeed in every inspection he has been through (be it OFSTED or ISI) his teaching has always been classed as outstanding.

He has also been tutoring in both Maths and Science since 2010 with many of his students wanting help to get through their senior schools entrance examinations (Common Entrance, City of London, Dulwich, Winchester). Since 2018, he has also been tutoring in both subjects up to GCSE (higher). All, so far, have got to their first choice school! He knows the pressures his students face and, in a calm and patient manner, aims to instil confidence and enthusiasm. Having a sound knowledge of the syllabus for these subjects and knowing the tricks of the trade, he is in a very strong position to get the very best out of all his students, ensuring they have a sound understanding of the subject matter and are well prepared for any examinations.

Phil has recently moved to Worcester to begin a big house renovation project and is building up his tuition base as well as dabbling in international teacher recruitment.

Recent testimonials:

"Phil did a really good job in helping our son pass his 13+ exams. Our son was aware that his science knowledge was either rusty or lacking. Phil in three hour slots helped get him back up to speed. Phil was very clear, understandable and helpful.
