Maths Tutor

Hugo Sheppard has worked as a maths tutor for many years. He has taught students of all kinds of personalities, and different strengths and weaknesses when it comes to maths.

Tutor Experience

As a private tutor, Hugo always finds it engaging to pay attention to the young person sitting in front of him. He enjoys figuring out how best he can help them to understand maths, to enjoy it, and to succeed.

Even though every student is individual, experience has taught him some of the most common Mathematical areas where students tend to have problems. He knows what signs to look for, as well as which teaching methods tend to work best.

Hugo is a GCSE Maths tutor, 16 Plus Maths tutor, A level Maths tutor and A level Further Maths tutor. In addition to A level tuition, Hugo also provides private tuition to students undertaking the IB Diploma and Pre-U Maths courses. He has a great deal of experience as a private tutor helping students across a wide range of examination boards at these levels.

Recently, Hugo was the GCSE Maths tutor to a student who was a lively and quick thinker. However, this meant that he could get bored easily, and was often impatient with getting the details right. Hugo strove to make the private tuition stimulating and challenging for him. As part of the GCSE tuition he included lots of difficult and interesting problems that stretched him beyond the syllabus. At the same time, Hugo helped him to become more careful and precise in his working. He and his parents were very happy with the GCSE tuition Hugo provided. There was a “dramatic” improvement in his results as reported by his school, and he got a high 8 for his final exam.

As an A level Maths tutor, Hugo covers the Edexcel, OCR, OCR MEI, and AQA examination boards.

Hugo Sheppard has frequently provided online tuition for foreign students who have successfully gone on to enter the British school system. Hugo also has experience as a home school tutor for those retaking A levels in order to gain a place at university.

Over a period of a year, Hugo provided home education for a student who was retaking A levels. He was good at maths as well as sciences, wanting to go to Bristol to read Physics. He was genuinely interested in maths, and wanted to understand the material rather than just cram for the A level retakes. The lessons went well and he got good grades in his A level retakes, getting in to Bristol.


“We highly recommend Hugo as a professional maths tutor. When he was preparing my son for entrance exams Hugo was patient and explained things in simple terms. This really helped my son to succeed. He knows everything and he teaches perfectly and effectively.”
