About the lesson
My name is Daniel Hill, and I am a full-time maths and science teacher. I have now being tutoring for 5 years and find it an extremely rewarding and valuable part of my teaching career.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
As a classroom teacher I have taught GCSE Science, GCSE Maths and A-Level Physics. Therefore, as a tutor, I have a working knowledge, not just of the content needed for the exams, but how to pass the exams. Also, thanks to my physics background, I enjoy teaching mathematics, not just as 'sums', but as a way of solving the puzzles science throws at us.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
Having graduated with a degree in Physics and Philosophy BSc (Class One) I trained as a teacher. I have now worked as a classroom teacher for four years and achieved Qualified Teacher Status as recognised by The General Teaching Council of England in 2009
- How much do you charge?
I charge £40 for per hour's tuition (£45 for A-Level).
While I appreciate my rates might not be the most competitive you may find on this site, as one of the few qualified teachers in full time employment working as a tutor I feel my rates are justified.
For pairs, or small groups, add £10 per extra student.
- Where do you teach?
I live between Tooting Bec and Balham, but work inShepherds Bush, so am very well connected, especially when travelling back from work,
- When are you available?
Generally, I can work whenever it is convenient for you.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I am qualified to teach right through from KS2-KS5 (8-19 years old) and am experienced in preparing students for KS3 SATS, Common Entrance, GCSE exams, IGCSE exams and A-Level exams.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
For online tutoring I have both a webcam and a microphone, while being able to share a 'virtual whiteboard' with the student. Ideally the student will also have a webcam and microphone to enable and encourage a positive learning dialogue as with face-to-face tutoring.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I genuinely enjoy helping people to understand things. I'd be lying if I said that the lessons will be the most fun you've ever had, but I bet they'll be more fun than you're expecting. I promise that you'll learn. I promise that you'll do better in your exams. And if I break that promise, you can write whatever you like on my forehead before I walk home.

- What kind of experience do you have?
I am lucky to have teaching experience from a wide variety of schools. I am currently the Head of Mathematics and Physics at a classical ballet school in Shepherds Bush. When I lived in the north of England I completed my training and taught for three years in a large comprehensive school and sixth form college, and after enjoying supply work in some of London's Academies I now find myself in the independent sector. Alongside my diverse teaching experience I have also tutored over fifty pupils in maths and science for Common Entrance, GCSE and A-Level.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes, I have an up-to-date enhanced CRB certificate.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I achieved Qualified Teacher Status in 2009 with the Redcar & Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership.
Daniel is the best tutor we've ever had.
He is extremely reliable, professional and my son was intent on dropping Physics and now is one of his favourite subjects again.
I would recommend Daniel unreservedly.
Quite simply, Daniel is superb....
