"I am impressed by how well my son concentrates with Nicola. She has achieved more with him in a few weeks than I think I would have achieved in a year. It is much less stressful to leave the tutoring in the hands of an expert."

Nicola Bhalerao - Warwick Tutor

About Me

My name is Nicola Bhalerao and I am a private tutor based in Warwick. Since 2013, I have provided one-to-one tuition for children and adults. I specialise in maths tutoring, but cater for different requests, ranging from 11+ to various computing skills, including website training.

My background is in computing, with a Computer Science degree from Warwick University. I have worked many years as a programmer, latterly in the games industry. Both my sons were tutored by me for the 11+ (they went to a local grammar school). I received training for teaching secondary school maths and I am fully CRB checked.

I am a WordPress expert, having spent many years creating numerous websites with my other business, Smiling Panda Web Design. Although I no longer actively work on websites for others, I offer help with understanding / updating / creating your own WordPress website.
