Awesome teacher, friendly and helpful! It’s clear that he has a lot of experience in both his areas of study and teaching itself. He simplifies ideas that should/would initially be complex, and breaks them down to help you try to understand them in a far simpler way, surpassing a lot of in-school teachers’ explanations and teaching methods; he has a lot of additional extra tips and tricks on how to deal with questions. Abides by the syllabus and teaches you exactly what you need to know. Overall, one of the best tutors I’ve had the pleasure to work with!

Andrew is a really wonderful tutor because he consistently works towards finding new and better ways to aid your understanding and thoroughly enjoys what he does, which makes each lesson beneficial and means that once you have understood something, you won’t forget it! I could not recommend him more!

Personalised Tuition

In order to truly grasp complex subject matter, you need tuition that not only focuses on understanding (rather than memorisation) but also suits your individual style of learning.

Our first lesson is usually to show what I can do, so we will pick a topic that is troubling you. In our second lesson we will quickly go through all the topics you have covered and assign a mark out of 5. Over the years, this has proved to be the best and most efficient method for rapidly identifying your weak areas. This gives us more time to work on them!

I record and analyse these numbers throughout your time with me. Every so often we will repeat this process, and as we do topics and you get exams back I will update it. Before your exams every topic will be a 5 out of 5.

Lessons with Solar Tuition in maths, physics and chemistry differ greatly from those you attend in school. With guidance, I’m going to teach you how to break problems down so you’ll be able to work independently in an exam.

This student-led approach enables you to answer even the most difficult questions in exams with confidence.

We will learn common mistakes and how to avoid them, and we will work together so you can learn how to break down tricky questions. I will show you how to answer the word-based questions as well as the calculation ones. I will teach you EXACTLY how the marking scheme works. This will give you the ability to visualise the mark scheme, and maximise your marks.
