Lawrence Ball tutored my children in maths and physics for 6 years. He was primarily assisting with exam preparation and, in this respect, the results were highly satisfactory.
He had a very distinctive approach to tutoring. His first concern was to help the student to feel relaxed and confident with the subject, using humour and imaginative associations to break down anxieties. He had an impressive ability to identify what was proving to be the obstacle to progress and to empower the student through its overcoming.
The greatest gift Mr Ball gave to my children was to help them to share his own delight in knowledge and his excitement with the wonder of the world. I am very grateful to him for the special role he played in their lives.
I have known Lawrence Ball for four years while he has taught mathematics to my three children. He has coached two of my children for their GCSE exams and given extra tuition to my primary age son. Lawrence was strongly recommended to me by two other parents in the local area, both of whom had children who were experiencing difficulty with maths. As a result of his work, my sons’ ability to handle maths problems improved immediately and dramatically, and I understand that other children have had the same success after working with Lawrence.
My observation of lessons with Lawrence has been that he is a flexible and receptive teacher of children and someone who is committed to creating a relaxed as well as a productive and ambitious learning environment. My children have engaged with Lawrence in different ways, but all have been unequivocal in their judgement that he is an excellent teacher of maths and able to give help at the level and in the register needed and expected. All have grown tremendously in confidence as a result of their lessons.
Finally, in general, I have found Lawrence a pleasant and efficient person. He is absolutely reliable at all levels, and a very positive presence. I have no hesitation in recommending him to your attention.

Lawrence Ball has patience, an exceptional understanding of young people and a deep knowledge of mathematics and physics (as well as many other subjects).
At the age of eleven, I was a demoralised student struggling in many subjects. Lawrence Ball’s tuition helped me greatly and produced a huge improvement in my maths. Furthermore, his teaching style inspired me to have a more positive attitude towards studying. Lawrence continued to tutor me in both maths and physics up to A-level. I have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence Ball as a superb private tutor.

To Whom it may concern
This is to acknowledge that My Lawrence Ball has worked with our two daughters over the last 2 1/2 years in private maths tuition. Mr Ball combines his considerable teaching experience with his understanding of child psychology extremely well. He also goes out of his way to make the lessons upbeat and his use of humour keeps the lessons buoyant.
During this time our two girls have both improved in their maths ability level relative to their class, and Mr Ball has also helped with confidence and calmness, which we feel has helped them in other ways with their studies generally.
