George has over 8 years’ tutoring experience, particularly in the subjects of Maths and English. He specialises in exam preparation, training students for school entry at 9+, 10+, 11+ and 13+. He also provides ongoing support for students alongside their school work, building up their confidence in specific areas they find difficult.
He has supported students as they prepare for a range of the country’s top public schools and London day schools, including Eton, Radley, Winchester, Westminster, City of London, St. Paul’s, Highgate, and many others.
His approach is to focus on the fundamental skills that will serve students throughout their education, and beyond. The ability to work out problems ‘in the moment’ through clear reasoning (rather than from memory) applies equally well to all subjects beyond English and Maths. It is always a matter of confidence through practice. There are also a few basic skills which, once internalised and made habitual, tend to make a significant positive difference to the student’s academic performance.
We are really happy with George and the help he is providing for our son. We’ve actually arranged to have an extra weekly session with him!Mrs L, Parent of 11+ student
I thought George was very specific and targeted in how he approached working with my son. I shared some thoughts about how my son approaches learning, and George really took them on board. We traversed a lot of ground in a short time which was exactly what we needed. He formed a helpful bond with my son that made the whole process both more productive and relaxed than it could have been. The Ivy Education team are great, very responsive and helpful.Mrs L Chiswick
