Guru in Mathematics
From my experience i have come to understand that Math builds on itself. I find students struggle with higher levels of math because they don't remember what they learned before because they took the ‘cram for the test' approach, and then they just brain dumped it,". "It'd be better if they would start from the beginning of their math career realising that they really need to remember everything they learn."
"There are certain basic concepts that need to really be understood. I have had students in algebra II or geometry who never fully comprehended the order of operations. Things like this apply to every single thing you do in math.
Practice questions and past papers are the best way of understanding a topic whilst also tailoring the knowledge to suit specific exam board styles. Hence my tutorials will mainly be based around going through specific questions on a paper, and then conferring with the mark schemes to get a real idea on what needs to be said to get every mark available, as there is a real difference between knowing a topic and being able to apply that knowledge to get the grade.

My son is very happy and motivated to work with Dominic. He tells me that he's finding the sessions helpful. Our aim for the tutoring is to help embed my son's school maths and also to give an extra stretch so that he is working to his full potential. I'm happy Dominic is supporting these objectives. I find him very helpful, responsive and well prepared. Lessons are positive so far.

We are very grateful for the effort and determination with which he helped our son retake his Science exam. His knowledge of exam technique and ability to communicate concepts has ensured him a place in a leading University.

I would highly recommend Dominic for Maths and Science. Dominic was engaged just 6 weeks prior to her entrance exam and she passed her papers. Dominic has an excellent knowledge of the subject and course syllabus. He quickly assessed my lack of knowledge and was able to focus her on the most critical areas to address this knowledge gap. Dominic then focused on exam practice and technique. His approach was excellent as he significantly motivated my daughter and together they made immense progress. My daughter had other commitments but Dominic worked in such a flexible manner that he was able to accommodate this without any impact on the end result. Dominic is truly a highly skilled tutor with the ability to get the best out of his student even when under pressure due to a short timeframe. She enjoyed being tutored by Dominic and I therefore would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Observing Dominic‘s lessons is always a pleasure as my children are deeply engaged with the Maths and Chemistry lesson, displaying a keen interest, asking pertinent questions to deepen their understanding and knowledge. My daughter talks a lot about his ability to break down difficult concepts into steps, which she finds particularly helpful.

Mr. Dominic helped me prepare for the GRE examinations, he coached me effectively and prepared me for the loopholes I might face when writing the examinations. I am pleased to say I scored a 153 out of 170 in the just concluded GRE examinations. Thank you Mr. Dominic

Mr. Dominic has worked with my son since 2017. Over this period, my son has improved drastically academically, he has developed a better attitude to his school work and I have Mr. Dominic to thank for this.
Mrs. FunmiMar 2019
Mr. Dominic is amongst the few passionate teachers I have met, he has created such a high standard for my daughter such that I find myself comparing all of her teachers with him.
Mrs. EdwinJan 2019
Dominic had just 3 sessions with my daughter and those days were truly insightful.
He is a passionate tutor, always prompt for his classes, follows through with with monthly plan and does assessments of the topics he teaches. Most importantly he gives feedback to me of his sessions which helps me track what and what was taught. I will recommend him for other clients.
