He has a wonderful ability to form a genuine rapport, listening carefully and understanding intuitively how to best to teach, on an individual basis. Moreover, it is a rare tutor who is a role model of humanity and integrity, as well as a talented educator." - AM

"I cannot thank you enough for the help you have given H. Since her initial lesson with you, she had had a renewed enthusiasm for Physics and has being doing extra work on her own to cement what you have taught her. She is far more confident and is now looking forward to carrying on to A2 rather than dreading it." - MA

"Ian was an excellent tutor for Hamish - supportive but challenging. Without him I am certain we would not have achieved the grades we needed for Bristol." - DL

"Thank you so much for all your help, I honestly do feel like you made a considerable difference." - ES

"What made Ian's tuition so excellent for me was how clearly I was able to understand such abstract ideas, and how interesting the lessons were. I was able to greatly expand on my knowledge of Physics due to the broad range of topics we learnt and most importantly in what I was able to then learn myself using the mindset and skills instilled through Ian's tuition. Thanks to Ian's tuition I was able to secure an offer at Cambridge for Physical Natural Sciences, and would recommend him to anyone looking to advance their skills in Physics in preparation for exams, university or simply out of interest. - SL

"My daughter scored a high A and was 7 marks short of the A*. Which is a great achievement on such a tough paper. Ian's support was a decisive factor in her success. I can't emphasize enough what a pleasure it was dealing with Ian. He is responsive and supportive for both the students and parents. I wholeheartedly recommend him." - KD

"I am overjoyed with my A*, and could not have done it without your help and expert guidance" - AM

"Thanks for all the tuition for the PAT test; you were a fantastic teacher and I really enjoyed the tutorials. It's definitely helped with my A2 maths and physics too. I achieved 287/300 In Physics this year compared to 265/300 last year, so thank you for all the help." - JG

University Entrance Exam and Interview Preparation

"Ian has been the most fantastic aid in my Oxford preparation and an excellent Physics tutor. He supported my curiosity, pushed my understanding of both basic A-Level and advanced Physics. Without Ian revitalising the subject for me with his expertise, I don't know how I would have attained my grades. A massive thank you to Ian, and I most definitely recommend anyone looking for a tutor for any period of time to choose Ian." - EW (Oxford PAT and Physics Interview)

"I got an offer in the post today! So again, thank you for all your help - it really has been invaluable to me. You changed the way I thought about various physical concepts, and going in to the interview with the new mindset and way of thinking that you instilled in me, definitely gave me added confidence and the ability to express my answers clearly." - DC (Oxford Physics Interview)

"I just wanted to let you know that I received an offer from Oxford. Your tuition really helped me to gain confidence in approaching the questions during the interviews. Thank you again for all your help." - EA (Oxford PAT and Physics Interview)

"Ian prepared my son incredibly thoroughly and certainly the interview questions seemed easy in comparison with the work he had done with Ian." - JH (Oxford PAT and Engineering Interview)

Thank you for your help!!" - NM (UCL Physics Foundation Course)

"Thank you very much for the tuition. I'm delighted to report I have been offered my first choice for graduate entry medicine after scoring 59 (when the top score was 62)." - MC (GAMSAT Student)

University Students

"I'm absolutely thrilled with my re-sit result. With your help I managed to jump from a fail to an averaged first in my prelims. Thank you!" - LV (Physics Student, Oxford)

"Ian helped me to understand fundamental principles from a completely different angle, which was pivotal to my exam success!"- HC (Physics Student, Oxford)

"I needed help on a university project. Having done preparation reading, I found that you were genuinely interested in my understanding of the problem. Thanks for all your help! I'd be very happy to recommend you." - JT (Physics Student, London)

"I got 92% in the exam!! I am so happy. You are the best tutor there is! I owe so much to you because I would have completely flopped this course if it wasn't for your help. Thank you so much. - MB (Advanced Engineering Maths Student, London)"

"I got an excellent exam result which I'm really pleased with. The tutoring did a lot of good so thanks! Most importantly my understanding of the subjects was much improved and not just my exam technique."- JR (Physics Student, London)

"I passed all my exams and got a 2:1 in both maths modules! Thank you again for your tutor session - it was invaluable. - ES (Physics Student, London)"

"Ian was very helpful during my first year at university studying Physics. Having struggled to cope in the first term, I started tuition in term two, and he very quickly helped me catch up with the course, giving me a more thorough understanding of the topics by starting at a conceptual level and building from there. Thanks to Ian, I was able to get through my first year, and pick up good grades in a couple exams, which puts me in a good position for year two!" - TF (Physics Student, London)

"After a recent trip from New York to London during my university's spring break, I had the pleasure of working with Ian on the principles of electric potential, currents, resistance, capacitance, and the nature of circuits in general. When I arrived in London, I had a mediocre understanding of the aforementioned at best (my professor moves very quickly), and felt overwhelmed by the thought of the looming exam the week I was due back in NY. Nonetheless, I was intent on enjoying myself in London, and sticking to the leisurely agenda I had set for myself. Given this objective, I had modest expectations for what would really come out of a few hours per day of tutoring, and viewed the hours more as a way of maintaining knowledge rather than expanding it. And how pessimistic I was! In the end, I left the UK feeling beyond prepared for the exam that awaited me, and my results on the exam confirmed that preparation. Thank you Ian for the time you have clearly dedicated to devising ways of making complex material palatable for first year students. Your teaching style is relaxed and patient, yet devoted and with purpose. Keep up the good work!" - BC (Physics Student, New York)

"I sought Dr Ian's assistance and expertise in hope of gaining the knowledge and further understanding of key concepts in preparation for a very important final exam. Although we did not have much time before the exam date, Dr. Ian's great knowledge and extensive expertise really assisted in my overall understanding of many issues that I had extreme difficulty with. There were some concepts that I have been taught quite a few times, yet failed to understand, however, with Dr Ian's unique teaching techniques, I was able to fully understand and apply these concepts that I previously found quite challenging. After being taught by Dr Ian, I have complete faith, that at times it's not the concept, but how it's being taught that makes the real difference in how far and well you actually understand it. He was extremely supportive and continuously encouraged me to think and rethink some ideas that we had covered. Thanks to his time and assistance, I successfully passed the exam we had prepared for and I know that he will be the tutor I turn to if I face any other future challenges in my studies." - AA (Engineering Student, London)

"You got me from a low 2nd to a high 1st in the space of one-hour. Made problems much clearer and easier to understand and would recommend for anyone looking for help improving their chances in doing well in their exams." - JM (Maths Student, Leeds)

"I am very pleased with my result. Ian is a amazing tutor and thanks for his tuition." - RL (Maths and Statistics Student, London)

"I really appreciate the lessons from Dr. Ian. He is able to convey complicated concepts in succinct manner that I can fully understand. After his teaching, I was able to apply those concepts in my third-year operational research project in investment portfolio. I successfully achieved a first-class grade for that project, which would not be possible without Ian's help. His guidance also helped me achieve first-class honours for my Bachelor degree. I highly recommend his tutorial service for anyone who aims high and wants to achieve better results." (Maths & Statistics Student, London School of Economics)
