Maths and Science with Roger ...

Maths, physics, chemistry and biology are exciting yet demanding subjects at both GCSE and particularly A level.

Success relies on knowing the basics well, understanding the concepts, accurate calculations, use of the correct units, good quality written work and effective exam technique.

After an initial career in the petroleum and telecommunications industries, I taught science and maths at a London college. I have thirty years experience of supporting many local students - read more on the Maths and Sciences pages.

English with Astrid ...

I tutor in all aspects of English language and literature, from KS3 to A Level, covering the National Curriculum areas: reading, writing and speaking and listening. I specialise in Standard English grammar and all other technical aspects of English, and help students develop their essay-writing skills for other A Level subjects, e.g. History.

I also tutor adult students, including those who wish to brush up their reading, writing and communication skills.

Find out more on the English page.
