Hello, I’m Andrew the Somerset Home-School Tutoring Area Advisor and tutor manager.
Before joining Home-School Tutoring I worked as a qualified maths teacher, for over 25 years working in a variety of schools, including specialist schools that worked with children who were in care and I also became head teacher of a specialist boys school for children ( pupils with EBD and/or autism) for over five years.
I have a real passion for helping children reach their potential, especially when there are challenges faced either with their learning or personally.
I’m married to my wife Susan and we have two lovely grown-up daughters. I’m a keen gardner and walker, hence living in the countryside! I also take an active part in my local church.
I strive to be very receptive to your tutoring needs and ambitions and to your concerns as a parent. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for a friendly chat or you are welcome to fill in the enquiry form below.
I hope to be able to help you and I will carefully choose the most appropriate tutor from my excellent team of tutors in Somerset and Devon.
I look forward to hearing from you!

He is an outstanding Science Tutor! – (Year 10)
“John* is an outstanding Science tutor, who has rekindled my love of science. He helped me think things through and patiently worked with me when I didn’t understand the topic/subject. He always encouraged me and patiently answered my questions but also made it fun. From my point of view he is Brill!!!!!!”

Flexible, good value, friendly English & Maths GSCE Tuition
“After my daughter was predicted to achieve grade D GCSE in both Mathematics and English, we felt she needed further support to raise those levels. Therefore several weeks of flexible, good value, friendly English and Mathematics tutoring has not only improved her confidence and ability but her English GCSE predicted level has increased to a C! This reflects the huge benefits of Home-School tutoring.”
