I can provide extra tuition for secondary pupils who would like to do better at English at any level in High School up to Higher.

I have also worked in support for college/university students and adults for 13 years and can advise on electronic support methods for all ages.

“Before I started my tuition with Peter my target grade was a C and my working grade was just below a pass. My main issues were understanding the questions, structure and essay skills. Since meeting Peter my working grade has rocketed to a B and I am expecting to achieve an A in my exam with Peter’s help. My classroom teacher is astounded by my progress and if it were not for Peter’s help I would never achieve the entry grades I need for university. Peter is a very understanding guy who’s knowledge, on religion, moral issues and philosophical matter seem to have no bounds.” (Senior Pupil –Kinross high school studying Higher RMPS)
