A unique approach with clear results

Traditional Tutoring

If you're looking for someone who will help you or your child learn better, develop critical thinking strategies, boost confidence, improve exam results – as well as broadening and deepening knowledge and acquiring wisdom then I can help!
Why Me?

I help students develop their understanding of what they learn about the world around them, encouraging them to seek original answers and solutions to problems, through a thorough connection with the basics of how words, numbers, and thoughts work for them.

I'm a highly experienced tutor, specialising in working with gifted and talented, profoundly gifted, and alternatively abled students (dyslexics, dyscalculics, etc). I teach foundational skills - language (communication, composition, comprehension, creative writing), numeracy (mathematics, geometry, algebra, and specialist dyscalculia support), logic, and critical thinking skills.

I teach English at all ages, up to degree level; Maths up to GCSE and creative thinking for 11+ upwards (younger for gifted and talented students on a case by case basis).

"Leon is wonderfully fresh, enthusiastic, and lateral in the way that he makes each lesson work to keep our daughter enthused, whatever the ups and downs. I am looking forward to working with him over the next year as she reaches the end of primary school."
Feedback from parent of 9-year-old preparing for 11+ exams
"Mr Conrad has far exceeded the expectations my husband and I had for a tutor, by expanding the minds of my children with out-of-the ordinary techniques. He believed in them and allowed them to develop, going far beyond exam techniques. We very highly recommend him."
Parent of siblings preparing for 11+ and 13+ entrance exams
"Thank you very much for recommending Leon, he has been of tremendous help and it has been a pleasure interacting with him. His teaching is not just about exams, and he helped our son so much looking into himself and expressing himself. Thank you again. I wish you a lovely summer."
