about me

Brian Dickinson

I have been a full time teacher working in the secondary sector for 25 years. I have also been an examiner for 20 years and a successful private tutor for the past 5 years. With my vast experience in education I fully understand the pressures students and their parents are under to do well in school. I have seen first-hand the importance of having extra help with embedding the knowledge gained in lessons. The school system does not always allow enough time for students to fully understand a topic before moving onto the next one. This is where My Own Tutor is so valuable. Students’ progress at THEIR OWN pace. Parents will also get weekly feedback on progress, something which does not happen in schools.

We specialise in Maths and English tuition, and we also have in addition 13 other subjects including three languages. Our programme follows the English Key Stage 1 to 4 programme which leads up to final GCSE exams. The programme is tailored to each student’s ability levels and keeps up with the individual student’s progress.

My Own Tutor Crawley Tuition Services delivers education services for both the school age and adult marketplace. We do this by having a world-class on-line tutoring program, supported by tuition centres, and 1-2-1 tuition as well.  Our clients are aspirational and desire the very best educational outcomes for their children. Our students own their own journey through a personalised program which is individual to them.

Our tuition service is suitable and affordable enough to meet a wide range of needs, particularly students wanting to:

Brian really engages my daughter in a subject that she has lost confidence in at school. His method of teaching has already helped her learn and understand areas of History that they have both looked at during the first 2 sessions.

Brian was excellent with communication, we have arranged a meeting for Wednesday. Very prompt and easy to use this website. Also, my brother passed his re-take English module and Brian was very good at arranging extra lessons and we are very please. Communication was always thorough.

Brian is an excellent tutor. He struck up a good rapport with my son and worked well to prepare him for his history GCSE through a combination of written tasks, discussions of topics and ways to increase the depth of written answers. I highly recommend Brian as a tutor.

Brian has been brilliant! He gets on really well with my son and I have already seen improvements in my both the quality of my son's work and his approach to English. His grades at school have started to improve too, which is a sign that things are going well.

Brian is an excellent teacher who has helped give my daughter confidence in her ability to do English Language GCSE by breaking down the questions into easier bite size chunks.

Excellent teacher, very personable, structured and built rapport quickly with my son. This is our second tutor for this subject, the first one did not work out. Brian is able to give simple. straight forward explanations that are enabling him to understand the information a lot more easily. He is also giving him confidence to give ideas and thoughts to the discussions.
