My name is David Horsewell. I am a full time Maths, Physics and Chemistry tutor in the Worcestershire town of Bromsgrove. I take students from year 8 upwards, including GCSE and A level.
I also tutor adults, for instance, students wishing to pass the QTS maths test or those wanting help with maths modules as part of a non-maths degree course.
Lessons usually last an hour and can take place either at my home near the town centre or at the student's home. I live within easy walking distance of both North and South Bromsgrove High Schools and also Bromsgrove School. I am willing to travel up to around 10 miles to reach a student's house and therefore cover Redditch, Droitwich, Rubery and surrounding villages. I do charge a little extra for travelling. Students normally book lessons with me at the same time each week during term-time. My usual working hours are Monday to Thursday from 3.30pm onwards, the last lesson slot being a 7.45pm start. I am sometimes available earlier in the day, which can be very useful for A level students who have free periods during the school day. I am also available on Sundays.
I am familiar with the different courses and exam syllabuses used by the local high schools. I see it as part of my job to keep up-to-date with curriculum changes. I have been a tutor in Bromsgrove for 15 years and my students and their parents say I am a very patient teacher who makes lessons enjoyable. I listen to my students and my tuition is very individual to each person. I am happy to discuss progress with both students and their parents. I work with students of all abilities. I have helped many students achieve good grades at A level and some of these have gone on to study Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering or other science based degrees at University. Equally, others have worked hard to achieve a pass at GCSE to enable them to gain entry to their chosen course at 6th form or college. I like to give all my students confidence to do their best and to get the grades they hope for.
