Hi! I'm Tom, and I'm an in-home private tutor, based in South-West London. One of my passions is teaching and investing in people - seeing them grow in skill and confidence and reaching their full potential. I absolutely love doing what I do!
Availability: I tutor Monday - Friday, during the day and in the evening
Willing to travel: 4 miles
Over the past several years I've tutored a number of people, in both a professional and non-professional capacity - friends who've wanted to learn how to play the piano, children desperate to learn the guitar (or the ukulele!) and budding GCSE and A-level mathematicians.
I've been working as a professional, full-time tutor for a year now, and in this time I've gained enormous experience of teaching in all sorts of situations and environments. I have a number of regular primary school aged piano and guitar students - most of these children started learning from scratch, and it's a real joy to see them still steadily improving with a consistent enthusiasm to learn.
Last year I also successfully tutored numerous GCSE and A-level mathematicians. This included both high-achievers aiming for the top grades and students who in no way enjoyed or liked maths but nevertheless needed a good grade before moving into sixth form.
One particular highlight was a GCSE student who, for various reasons, was initially struggling to even pass any of his maths tests - I was told they would be absolutely delighted with a C. Fast forward the clock 6 months or so however, and they completely deservedly achieved a B. As well as all this I went into a school once a week to teach maths to year 7s and year 9s struggling to keep up in class. I also had a few adult learners in guitar, piano and music theory.
