Hello I’m John and I’m the Area Advisor and Tutor Manager for this region. I also run the Herefordshire area and I have a wonderful register of tutors across these two regions and we can offer all subjects and levels of tutoring.
My own speciality is Maths ; I taught Maths at secondary level and I continue to tutor Maths alongside running Home-School Tutoring Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.
Before teaching I was a Civil Engineer for 20 years and I believe this industrial experience has been an invaluable asset to my approach as both a teacher and a manager.
I also love family life with my partner, Jenny, and my two young children; they keep us also very much involved in the current learning needs and progress stages in primary school.
With my own subject, I know that students can find aspects of Mathematics daunting and that often, they can benefit from one to one support in order to achieve their true potential.
All the tutors in my Gloucestershire team, including myself, have a love of learning and teaching, and I believe it’s a privilege to be able to share knowledge and expertise through patient and supportive tuition.
For me, there are very few experiences in life more rewarding than seeing pupils grow in confidence, and begin to enjoy learning again.
If you are considering personal tuition for yourself or your child, please give me a call and we can discuss your / their learning needs or issues. I will then be able match you with the right tutor.
We look forward to being able to help you.

Testimonials from this Area
What a difference a week brings with a private tutor!
“Thank you for a great start today. Charlie was very compatible with Andy (Geography Tutor ) and Charlie was really very happy with his lesson. The timetable for this week and the following two look amazing, you must have worked so hard. I look forward to meeting the Tutors and will see Peter, Beth and David later this week…
…What a difference a week brings! I cannot believe how all this has come together so quickly and Charlie not even out of school a week.” ( Parent of Charlie – Gloucestershire )
John gave me reassurance & guidance in finding excellent tutors
“With the daunting task of organising home schooling for my 15yr old son in his GCSE years, I contacted John from Home-School Tutoring. As the Area Advisor for the Gloucester and Hereford region he gave me much needed reassurance and guidance. With years of experience as a teacher himself and an empathetic approach, he was instrumental in finding excellent tutors. John took into account our specific requirements and circumstances, helping to plan an initial timetable and advising on curriculums and exam boards and anything else I wasn’t sure about! I have already recommended John to friends, who have been equally as satisfied and grateful as ourselves for his support.” ( Cathy – Parent from Herefordshire)
This tutor again please!
“Thanks John – fingers crossed we can still have Hugh in January as he was great!! (December 2016 – Herefordshire)
Comments from a local HST Tutor
I am glad if I have helped, and am in turn very grateful indeed for all the additional work you have given me, some of which has been remarkably enjoyable.(From tutor – July 2017 – Gloucestershire)
Thanks to the tutors you have recommended to us
“I just wanted to say how helpful Jordan was to my son, in the preparation for his English GSCE. They got on really well and Jordan had a terrific way of inspiring and getting the best out of him.” (Parent – Gloucestershire)
“We have just said goodbye to the wonderful tutor, Jordan Kruszynski, whom you matched to my son to help prepare him for his GCSE English. He has been a big support for my son, Joel, who sat his final GCSE English exam today. Jordan has helped build Joel’s confidence as well as tutoring him in exam technique and I wholeheartedly recommend him as a tutor. Jordan’s passion for English was apparent from the start.( Parent – Gloucestershire)
A great service of tutoring
“My daughter Martha has been receiving extra tuition with her Maths from John Lewis for some months now ~ all I can say is we have been given excellent service. John is very professional and pleasant and Martha’s progress has been fantastic. Very highly recommended.” Jane ( Martha’s mother)
Maths is making sense
“John put us in touch with my daughter’s A-Level Maths tutor Paul and, although we are only a month in, she is finding him very helpful and the numbers are starting to make sense again. He has a way of explaining things clearly and her confidence is growing each week! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.” (Student’s mother)
Summer 2017: A level results joy
“Just a ‘HUGE THANK YOU’ to you for finding Beth to tutor my son. Cambridge English results are out today and he gained: English Lang B and English Lit A!
These are amazing results as when I had his predicted grades they were C/B so I am really proud of him and the results he has gained. However, this is down to Beth and her enthusiasm and expertise in getting the best out of him, following a very difficult time for him. He enjoyed her lessons so much and she worked him hard, but they also laughed a lot!
I have spoken to Beth this morning but I also wanted you to share ‘the moment’ as it seems rather special and exciting and some of this is down to you for selecting a great tutor.” Kate (Beth’s mother)
Mechanics A grade!
“I thought you would like to know that Jenna did her repeat Mechanics exam this morning and she texted me afterwards saying, ‘best exam this year so far! I know I got one thing wrong but I felt confident about the rest so I’m hoping it wasn’t too bad!’ So it sounds very hopeful as Jenna does not normally sound so positive after an exam.” (Jenna’s mother)
And later after the results:
“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your tutoring because altogether I got a B for maths however for Mechanics I got an A in my resit, which is crazy as I didn’t think I’d go up so many grades from a D!’ So thank you SO much for everything, your help was much appreciated. (Jenna)
“Thank you for the time you have spent coaching Jenna. I know it has given her confidence and filled in a lot of learning gaps that she had which has helped her to build her mechanics ability. We were so pleased with Jenna’s huge improvement which definitely influenced her overall maths grade. Thank you so much for your time and for the excellent tutoring that helped her to achieve this. ” (Jenna’s mother)
