My Passion & How I Inspire

As a tutor, I am dedicated to establishing a learning environment in which a student can feel relaxed, take enjoyment from study, and, perhaps most importantly, grow in confidence, both personally and academically. I strive to turn learning into an immensely positive experience, aiming to locate academic areas in which a student might be struggling, before working through issues as a team.

My Reviews

"We had a very successful week with Hugo, and would love him to come for another week of tutoring in June, in Crete" Mrs Desmond (Common Entrance)

"Dear Hugo,

I just wanted to say the biggest thank you for the incredibly hard work you have put into Alice's studies this year. The fact that she was awarded the year prize at Highgate is, in no small part, due to you. You are an exceptional tutor and I very much hope you will continue with Alice for many years to come.

See you tomorrow" Natalie

""The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." - says it all Hugo. You have turned on a light, and we will be forever grateful for what you have given." Joseph. Katy & Paul

I come from the chilly North-East, and have surfed at Tynemouth while there was snow on the beach!
