About Me

- Offer English including phonics, Maths and 11+ tuition
- Over 10 years experience teaching the whole Primary age range.
- Hold qualified teacher status (QTS) and DBS

I provide 1 to 1 tuition online through zoom. This involves pupils learning through an interactive whiteboard, worksheets and past papers which I provide online as well as learning games that I can share from my computer. I have found online tuition to be extremely successful and most accessible for pupils from years 3 to 6.

I successfully tutor a range of levels and adapt my approach according to the age, and needs of the pupil. Whatever your needs are, I provide a tailored approach to provide challenge and enable a child to progress.

I have helped a large number of pupils to pass their eleven-plus entrance exams for a range of schools. I have taught both the CEM and GL style questions for eleven plus. Therefore, I am familiar with both assessment types.

I am a 38 year old male primary school tutor who lives with my partner and toddler. My hobbies include sport, reading, going to the cinema and travelling. I have a large family, which includes 4 brothers and 2 sisters (one is my twin!) plus a large amount of nieces and nephews!

I offer professional tuition using a really patient, calm and caring approach. I will always do my best to ensure that a child understands a concept and will work hard to give them the best chance at making good progress. I feel a real strength of mine is being able to build a great working rapport with pupils and parents. Another strength is my ability to promote a confidence increase in mathematics whilst making quick progress.

Lessons are 30, 45 or 60 minutes.
Before school lessons available from 7 am.

I have a current DBS and am registered with the DBS update service. This can be viewed by you on request.

My Experience

I have taught in primary schools since qualifying in 2011 and gained class teaching experience with all year groups from nursery to year 6. I have particularly strong experience with lower key stage two.

As well as tutoring pupils 1 to 1 online, I also teach groups in an education centre. I tutor children for a variety of reasons such as to boost confidence, bridge gaps in learning, prepare for 11+/school tests and also to enable academically gifted children to excel further.

Some feedback:

Phil is only the second tutor my son has had but I rate him excellent. He is very friendly, calm, approachable and easy going which I think has helped my son engage with him. My son definitely has a better understanding of maths since he`s been tutored by Phil.

Phil was a great choice when my twins needed extra help after lockdown. We still have the odd session now and he's happy to fit us in at short notice. The children felt relaxed and encouraged from the outset. He is so professional in his approach but so friendly and chatty with the children. He new their personality and abilities after the first half hour and knew exactly what to do and where to start. Phil had it all covered.
I still pinch myself- I dont know how he got my daughter to enjoy maths! We had a weekly hour one 2 one session and hes always been flexible if we've had to change the slot. He gladly stays to discuss their progress, nothing is ever a problem.
I definitely recomend Phil if you want your children to enjoy their school work again!

We are absolutely delighted with the support we have received from Phil with tutoring our son he is really professional in his approach of teaching and communication, he is so friendly and positive My son feels really comfortable and at ease with Phil at all times, and i feel it has greatly improved my sons confidence with his learning.

Phil is also accommodating and flexible in arranging tutoring times which i found was great for us, he also takes time to give us feedback on how our son is performing. Everything has been amazing We cannot recommend Him enough.

We found phil to be a very enthusiastic and capable tutor.
For us sessions have been 1 to 1 online video calls (as at the time of writing we are in cv lockdown) which has worked great - no different to being in the room.
Phil has turned out to be very flexible in catering for anything we wanted be it 11+ prep or extra curriculum work for our 10 year. Makes lessons seems a bit like a chat while actually learning a lot which is great for our son who looks forward to them.
Allways available for chats about progress and the like.
Would definitely reccommend.
