TEACHING EXPERIENCE AND APPROACH
As one of London’s leading tutors, I have a thriving practice of students competing at the highest international levels. Under my tutelage, students regularly gain entry to top schools including Westminster, Harrow, Francis Holland, Eton and St Paul’s.
In over ten years since graduating from Cambridge, I have spent thousands of hours tutoring children and teenagers one-on-one for families across the globe, including heads of state, prominent royals, famous artists and public figures. My work has been featured on television and in the international press. After beginning work with me, parents often choose to maintain weekly instruction for many years. Many of my students achieve exam success despite challenges at school, special educational needs and behavioural issues. My students have also entered and won national writing competitions during the course of their exam preparation with me.
I am passionate about the possibilities for deep and transformative learning that one-to-one tuition provides.
‘Peter taught our son in lockdown entirely online… he was significantly behind his peers … at a poor reading level and with a strong dislike for it… Peter instilled the love of reading in a very reading-resistant child… and he passed the exam for Westminster.‘ – Elena L.
‘We turned to Peter in desperation… our son had lost all interest in his studies… Peter achieved the impossible and turned apathy into passion… he made a tremendous difference to our son’ – John H.
‘Our son was struggling to maintain focus and often spoke very negatively about his studies and learning in general… we were even worried that he might not achieve passes in his Common Entrance. [With Peter] he not only passed, but passed with flying colours. Peter [was] indispensable’ – Charles S.
‘Lockdown happened and my son was languishing at home… From the first lesson, the transformation in my son was incredible…He went from being bored and disinterested to engaged and enthusiastic… He genuinely would have floundered without their weekly sessions together… Peter was strict, fun and excellent. I used to joke that it wasn’t the same child!’ – Amanda F.
‘History was a drag where my son didn’t feel confident… [with Peter] his mind lit up and he became knowledgeable and passionate… he successfully passed the Winchester exam.’ – Carolina B.
‘Peter has a very energetic and involved style of teaching which quickly allowed him to gain the trust of both of our daughters… with the younger discovering a love of poetry. He is also excellent at communicating and coordinating with parents… our younger daughter can now easily tackle math topics that used to be sources of anxiety for her’ – Zeynep B.
‘Peter was so effective that we ceased other tutoring… He gave my son the confidence and self-belief to tackle the examinations. I have since recommended Peter to my friends whose children are also aiming for top schools. Already, their feedback on Peter has been glowing. No surprise my son got an offer to attend Westminster.” – Karolyn P.
‘My son had old-fashioned and ineffective tutoring. Enter Peter… gaps in his knowledge were entirely filled, and he passed his 13+… which I can say with confidence he would not have done, had it not been for Peter’ – Inga H
‘I remember the first day he came to meet us… he excels in organisation and efficiency… always positive and lifts everyone’s spirits… Peter helped immensely, especially our son, to mature.’ – Arianna F.
‘Highly versatile… Peter conducts himself with honesty and integrity… at all times highly professional and discreet… In twenty years of sourcing tutors for families […] I struggle to think of a more sympathetic and effective tutor.’ – Agency review
‘I cannot recommend Peter highly enough… my son respected his manner and sense of humour… from a parent’s point of view, a pleasure to work with’ – Penelope R.
‘Peter’s vitality made the subject alive… [he is] not only passionate, but compassionate, with responsibility way beyond the expected norm… He takes a genuine interest in our son’s welfare… our son often told us how superior Peter was’ Jonathan E.
‘An exceptional tutor… Peter turns mundane, boring subjects into lively, exciting and memorable sessions… he had a profound effect on our children!’. Damien H.
