As the founder of the Professional Tuition Agency, David is dedicated to providing extra educational opportunities throughout Grimsby, Scunthorpe, Louth, Lincoln and in and around Northern Lincolnshire.


The agency was founded some 35 years ago and was, and still is, unique in many respects. David has kept it local in order that he can know all his tutors personally and have his “finger on the pulse” at all times. David himself, having gained a BSc in mathematics at London University, followed by a teaching diploma, worked in Grammar schools in Derbyshire and Somerset before moving to Grimsby with his wife and family.


He was Head of Mathematics and then Deputy Head for many years at a large comprehensive school. His later years were as Head of Sixth Form in the private sector at St James’ School in Grimsby.

Our private tutors

The Professional Tuition Agency has a large number of tutors available covering most subjects, all age ranges and all levels of ability including people with special educational needs.


David personally selects our tutors for their enthusiasm and ability to inspire their pupils.

Meet David Hawkes BSc

David has been very surprised by the range of help requested. The bulk of the tuition is, as expected, for students aged from 5 to 18 years old. However, we also supply help for more mature students who, perhaps, have missed earlier qualifications; which they now need in order to pursue a career change. It may be that they wish to take up a course or study for their own interest; which may be a foreign language.


We are currently supplying tuition for some large industrial concerns within the area.
