About me and my tutoring

I am Dr Leon Simpson. I am a former academic researcher, with a PhD in Mechanical engineering from the University of Bath, and postdoctoral research in mathematical physics done abroad behind me. Before this, I obtained five A-levels at grade A, followed by a 2:1 in Physics from the University of Oxford.

More recently, I worked at a local college, teaching A-level Maths, Further Maths and Physics. Since leaving in 2018 I have worked as a tutor, ranging in scope from 11 Plus preparation to helping postgraduate students in STEM subjects. I hold a teaching qualification, and I am DBS checked.

11 Plus preparation 

I have a wealth of excellent materials with which to tutor in reasoning, literacy and numeracy, and skills for raising attainment in these subjects.

KS3, GCSE and A-level Maths and Physics tutoring

I have much experience of adjusting my practice to a wide variety of needs, sometimes creating bespoke resources for particular students. I know all the boards well and have a deep understanding of the material being examined. 

Undergraduate and postgraduate maths and physics tutoring 

This has included maths for an undergraduate Electrical engineer and mechanics for a masters Mechanical engineering student. Almost every resource used was authored by me.

I am based in Slough and tutor from home, presently online only. I have demonstrably raised attainment. In 2021, 83% of my A-level Maths students obtained A*, and 80% of my A-level Physics students achieved A/A* grades. My GCSE results in 2021 were also strong: 100% of my GCSE Maths students obtained the highest grade, 9. For a snapshot of the resources I use, access my blog using the link in the menu.

Here is a selection of feedback on my tutoring. For additional feedback or to leave your own, use the following buttons.

Leon teaches in a clear and concise manner. By prioritising learning by first principles, he helps create a solid mathematical basis for exploring the fascinating field of mathematics. Alongside that he helps drill key exam skills to help maximise attainment.  With his excellent teaching skills, he helped my son attain an A in A-level Maths.

Although my son started late, Leon helped him to achieve the predicted grades in A-level Physics and Further maths and my son managed to secure his first choice of University. Leon provides feedback regularly and genuinely cares for the welfare of his students.

Leon is an outstanding, highly dedicated, absolutely professional yet friendly and a calm tutor. His tutoring methods are simply great, very clear and concise, and quite engaging and encouraging. Leon does not waste your time and he has the intent to help you understand the subject in every single class. He gives regular feedback and helpful suggestions for improvement.

Our son started taking classes from Leon in year 12. He is a shy young boy and Leon tailored his classes accordingly around him. Leon's patience and support is beyond words!

Our son achieved exactly what Leon predicted both in AS-level's and A-levels. Leon tutored our son for Maths, Further Maths, and physics. He achieved grade A in both Physics and Further Maths at AS-levels (Grade A being the highest grade awarded at AS-levels). He then went on to achieve A*s at both Physics and Maths at A-levels.

Our son is going to a Russell group University to do Computer Science. Leon has helped our son to pursue his passion.

Thank you Leon for your absolutely amazing support and motivation. You really are a star tutor and you deserve to be appreciated and applauded!

We would highly recommend Leon. He is an exceptional tutor!
