I’m an experienced Mathematics and 11+ Tutor, also a parent of two children, living in Staines-Upon-Thames where I have been tutoring for some time. I studied maths at University and have complete knowledge of the GCSE and KS 2 to 4 curriculum. Additionally, I tutor non-verbal reasoning and maths for the 11 plus and selective schools entrance exams.
I have two children myself, which helps keep things in perspective and has given me direct experience of the joys of school exams, different learning styles and the current curriculum.
I teach and specialise in Maths and non-verbal reasoning for children and adults of all ability levels. My approach is based on structured one hour sessions usually once per week and normally afternoons, evenings or weekends. I like to map out a plan with parents at an early stage that we can then set out to achieve together and assess progress against regularly.
I am a patient and approachable tutor able to get the best out of all ability levels - I work on the confidence of the student as well as the knowledge itself and exam approach. Maths is a challenging subject so keeping things simple and working step by step helps the student click things into place.
Mario has been a fantastic help in tutoring my son. In a very short space of time (literally months!), he worked closely with Luke to help him improve his maths, verbal and non verbal reasoning. Without Mario's help Luke would not have passed his 11+. I would not hesitate to recommend Mario!
Recent tuition from Mario resulted in my daughter progressing from a
borderline B/C in her Mocks to a high A in her GCSE Maths. What
more can I say? Mario was patient, knowledgeable and hugely improved
her confidence. Would definitely recommend.
Mario has been tutoring our nine year old son for the last few weeks in 11+ Maths.
His approach and techniques are very engaging, our son has felt comfortable right from the beginning and has definitely progressing well since starting the sessions.
Mario is a superb tutor who is extremely reliable, friendly and professional. We would highly recommend him.
So pleased with my exam results yesterday! Thanks to Mario I achieved what I aimed for.
Mario was extremely patient, and when I couldn't understand something he would explain, in different ways again and again until I got it. What a brilliant tutor all round!
Mario, is a very professional teacher in his area where he masters really well besides his passion towards the subject which reflects clearly in the way he teaches & transmits the knowledge to his students.
My daughter improves in a timely manner besides the fact that she is enjoying the lesson in relation to Mario's way of teaching.
We are lucky to deal with him & always willing to move froward seeing the progress he is achieving.
He is very systematically getting our daughter prepared for her GCSE in Maths and we are very happy with her tuition.
Mario has been an outstanding tutor. His excellence in Maths is expected, but the stand out element, is that in a period of 4 weeks he has made Maths enjoyable for our son. I would highly recommend his services!
Mario has been tutoring my 14 year old daughter for the last few weeks in Maths. His easy-going manner and understanding approach is helping her to overcome her fears in the subject and lack of confidence. My daughter enjoys her lessons with Mario and we would highly recommend him.
