Dr Lei W

I obtained my degrees (BSc, MSc and PhD) in Physics from prestigious universities. I have more than 15 years of experience in teaching and lecturing Maths, Physics and science in schools and universities. Meanwhile, I also privately tutor different level and year group students over the years offline and online. I am very patient and can explain the difficult points in understandable ways. By identifying and diagnosing the tutee`s weakness and problems in learning, I then design a bespoke tutoring plan for my tutees to make up for any ineffective and insufficient learning and teaching. With my professional knowledge, I not only help my tutees to understand every academic aspect specified by examination boards but also broaden their horizons. I aim to help all students achieve their potential by giving them encouragement, understanding and individualised attention. My objective is to inspire my tutees and eventually improve their performance significantly.

Mr David S

I have been a Primary school teacher for 7 years and am currently teaching at a local school in Year 5. I have previously taught in years 3 and 4 as well as some teaching experience in years 2 and 6. I have previously tutored privately and always received positive praise and feedback. I always try to make the tutoring experience less like school and more informal and relaxed while at the same time setting high expectations and challenge. I am experienced in working with children that need a little boost in particular subjects to help them feel more confident. Often, this close support can really enhance their self-belief and determination and they continue to excel. This close, tailored support is really beneficial as it is not always possible in a classroom setting. I like to take time to get to know children and their interests and try to tailor learning with this in mind. I am calm natured, approachable and encouraging and take great pride in helping children to learn in a fun way.
