My tutoring approach
I believe the best way to learn is through planning,reflecting and effective collaboration. I am friendly and approachable and work with my students to get the very best results.
I am a great tutor and I really want to help although, I'm getting a bit fed up with those that book 'free trials' and do not attend! If you book it - come along, you may learn something! Or at least let me know you have had a change of heart!
Tutoring experience: 9+ years
I have been teaching history, government & politics, religious studies, citizenship,geography and English at secondary level for over 10 years at gcse and A level. I have a range of experience teaching humanities at KS3,4 and 5. I am now a team leader for a range of qualifications in school. I have marked exam papers for most exam boards and so have a range of experience in achieving the best results from my students.

After big search and lots of interviews we found Mr K. To be honest, not my choice in the first instance but if you have the time he will get you the results you are looking for. So despite his choice of rugby team I can recommend him with praise. -GCSE student's dad
I think the best thing about Phil is that nothing is too much trouble. His resources are great and his manner supportive and informative. A real find and a real plus for the learning! English is my second language and this did not really make a difference. As you can see my writing is lots better now.
Great, would recommend him in an instant.
I didnâ€™t want a tutor because I don't like teachers. Phil is different and really motivated me with his exam marking experience and great resources. It was tough for him with multiple subjects but he never said anything.
Professional, hard working, funny and kind. A great asset and a true dedicated tutor. Gets the results and inspires the children.
I really enjoyed my time with Phil. He helped me to put together a plan and then to work through each part of it. I would attribute my success to his diligence and hard work. -Master's student
Mr Kimberley was amazing! He really is the man with a plan. My twin sons really took to him and worked well to achieve grades well above their predictions. A true professional that does it because he loves it.
Mr Kimberley was fantastic. He worked hard to build confidence with Alyssa and to help her achieve the â€˜Aâ€™ grade she really deserved.
Philip's interview lesson was extremely interesting. His use of images throughout completely captivated my attention and his constant questions ensured that I completely understood the topic. I would definitely recommend Phil to anyone looking for a really friendly and helpful tutor.
