As a tutor I like to meet other tutors. I organise tutor meetups in London and along with my friend Henry Dingle I run the Indie Tutors Network which provides professional development to tutors.
Following is a list of tutors who I know and trust to be a true professionals, doing what they do not as a hobby or part time, but full time and after having amassed years of experience perfecting their craft.
Henry Dingle : English Essay and Maths for 14 to 16 year olds
Henry is a specialist tutoring GCSE students and is also into mentoring that age group. The starting point with all prospective students: “Will you take responsibility for your own learning?” is one of Henry’s keystones of tuition. With over 15 years of tutoring experience he is one of the most progressive and forward thinking tutors I have met in person and on video calls. We have tutored several students together before. He tutors from where he lives in Bristol and is one of the few online tuition specialists out there.
Richard Glascodine : Maths from KS2 to A Level, Foundation Engineering
I have honestly not met a more enthusiastic maths tutor with so much in common as Richard. He has a background as a qualified maths and music teacher and has worked in schools. He also trains apprentice Engineers and we connect on so many levels. He has a kindness and enthusiasm for the success for students that is infectious and he manages being a father of a newly born with his passion for tutoring. He has a very practical, application way of tutoring maths and Engineering which makes immediate sense for his students. He is based in Brighouse, Yorkshire and is moving to tutoring completely online.
Michael Dewar : French and Spanish up to A Level
Michael is based in London and is a full time tutor. We have taught many students together and compliment our subjects well. Michael is truly a language expert with a thorough knowledge of all the syllabuses. He also works with adults learning the languages.
Nigel Straney : Chemistry A Level and IGCSE
Nigel has nearly 20 years teaching and tutoring experience, and is also an examination marker for one of the UK boards. He taught at an international school in Kuwait for 16 years. One of the pioneers of online tuition he’s been tutoring full time online for 3 years. Nigel has very well organised and meticulously prepared notes which are also avaialble as pre-recorded video lessons.
Matthew Barnes : Biology A Level and Medical School Entrance
Matthew is a true pioneer in online tuition. He is based in Devon, and has over 25 years of tutoring experience. What is unique about him is that he has 3 years of experience of only tutoring online. He is one of the most experienced only online tutors out there.
