Please note, in busy periods, I may not be able to travel far outside Exeter.

Please note however, for tutoring outside Exeter I charge a fuel cost supplement; this is a flat rate irrespective of the length of session.
Do you cover all exam boards?

Please contact me with the specifics and I’ll create a package tailored to your/ your child’s needs. If I can’t, I’ll endeavour to pass you onto someone who can.
I want to simply improve my/ my child's ability in a subject area. Can you do this?
You/your child does not have to be directly working towards a qualification; I can help improve confidence and knowledge within your chosen subject area.
Do you tutor in other subjects?
If I can’t I’ll endeavour to pass you onto someone who can.
Will I/my child be set homework?
That said, what or whether any homework is set depends entirely on your/your child’s needs.
Can you tutor more than one person in a session?
The details can be discussed during your free consultation.
Do you tutor for home educated children?
I can also tutor small groups in a diverse range of locations, whatever best fits your needs.
Do you offer any other services?
One former student commented to a colleague that the Oxford interview was a breeze since the one I had conducted was three times harder.
I am also an experienced debater, I am a former finalist in the Welsh Mace, so can provide debating coaching too.
I also have extensive experience assisting with personal statement writing for university entry.
How long does a session typically last?
I find that proportionally more can be covered in 90mins rather than in 1hr.
However, length of the sessions are negotiable to fulfil your individual needs.
How much do you charge?
This will be discussed during your free personal consultation.
