  1. ‘Derek has tutored our daughter for five years, primarily in Mathematics, but also in the sciences and Spanish closer to GCSE level. We always found Derek very personable and more importantly his tutoring was of a very high standard. Our daughter led topics for revision as required and Derek’s level of knowledge excelled at all levels. By making the tutoring interesting, topical and fun our daughter obtained great knowledge from their sessions, leading to a high grade in GCSE’s. Alongside her own hard work I strongly believe Derek’s input was influential in the high grades achieved.’

  2. ‘We had the pleasure of Derek tutoring our son from year 4 at school right up to the end of A levels (10 years) and can honestly say that it was a great experience for our son and also for us. He was very patient even when our son showed no interest in studying or paying attention. He would explain concepts in a way that was easy to understand. Derek was committed to getting our son where his ambitions were even though it was very challenging at times. He helped him with Math’s and Spanish to start off with and then expanded to physics. Derek was very reliable, would never cancel and even when we wanted more sessions due to pressing assignment or exams, Derek would make the impossible possible to fit us in. I could depend on him whole heartedly that he would push and push till he got the result he wanted. Our son is now 19 and at university doing a degree in Pharmacy. I have Derek to thank this for because he kept our son motivated and ambitious to achieve what he could to get to this stage. I will be forever grateful to Derek. Derek also had a fun side to him which made our son look forward to the tutoring sessions as he was excited to hear a fun story about Derek in his previous career. I would highly recommend Derek to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional, reliable, and fun tutor.’

  3. ‘My daughter was struggling with Maths in year 9 and a friend of mine recommended Derek as a tutor. Since meeting Derek my daughter not only passed her Maths GCSE she also obtained a Grade B Maths A Level this year.As well as being a fantastic Maths, Chemistry and Biology teacher who can teach the latest curriculum for GCSE and A Level, Derek can teach these subjects as intensively as required, Derek has a great approach to teaching and talks to the student on the same level. He adapts his teaching to the student and really stretches the student. More importantly he gives them confidence and helps them believe in themselves. He imparts his knowledge and teaches the intricacies of the subject in easily understandable chunks and uncomplicates the complexities of the subject to make it easy to understand. Aside from the above, Derek is a top guy who has a great sense of humour and is true professional with a strong work ethic. Completely and wholehearted I can recommend Derek.’
