About me

I used to be a professional rugby player when younger and have continued my love of that sport to become the Londoner with the most appearances in the semi-professional ranks.

Tutor Experience

I have been tutoring and teaching for over 15 years, and over half of that has been spent in the position of Head of Science or assistant principal. I believe that I am easy to be around and students feel comfortable when working with me and are confident that they can ask any question, no matter how silly they may perceive it to be. I always try to think of relevant and engaging ways to tackle a topic to enable all abilities to understand.
Having left teaching in September 2018 to spend more time with my baby daughter, I've set up my own business that designs lesson resources for other teachers. This not only means that I have access to hundreds of resources that I share during lessons to back up the learning but also means that I'm aware of the intricacies and key details of all of the specifications, including the International ones

Topic Expertise

As my degree was in Anatomical Sciences, my expertise lays in the human anatomy sections of Biology, including the organs and functions of the organ systems

Good Lesson. Helped with equations and explanations in quite a small amount of time. Very helpful

Josiah - Physics

He was able to explain some of the key things about a topic and also helped me to understand it completely as it would definitely appear in my exam. He also gave me some hard questions and helped me through those and by the end of the session I could complete some questions quite easily.

Testimonials

Callum - OCR A-level PE Achieved A* I had tutoring with Gareth for a year which was greatly appreciated. At the end of year 12 i was predicted a B by my school. After getting my A-Level results back I was chuffed to receive an A* thanks to all the help from Gareth. Really nice guy who spent lots of time helping me progress and learn in depth things which I could not normally at school!He constantly checked up on my school work and worked through past papers and extra consolidation to prep me for the exams. Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a tutor. Cant thank him enough

Imogen - AQA Biology, Chemistry and Physics Achieved 8, 8, 7 Gareth has been my tutor for the last 2 years when I started my GCSE courses. I studied triple science at GCSE, with physics being my weakest of the 3 subjects. Gareth helped me gain knowledge in the more complex topics, cementing my understanding and making me feel far more confident. He answers and explains any questions I have at a level I understand. My grades have consistently improved since my tuition started and I was very happy with my GCSE results. As I start Biology A-level studies , I look forward to continuing to develop my knowledge with Gareth’s tuition

James - OCR A level Biology A Achieved A Gareth’s tuition was a vital part of my biology A level and certainly played an important role in me getting the grades necessary to study Veterinary Science at uni. His one on one sessions were always simple to follow whilst still being at the highest level possible for my A level. In addition to this, Gareth was always willing and able to answer any questions I had that weren’t on the specification. He was also flexible in his hours, which I was extremely grateful for, given any delays in getting home from school on time. Overall, his lessons pushed and engaged me and were a tremendous help in my studies.

Sophie - Edexcel A level Biology B Gareth became my daughter's Biology tutor as she was experiencing significant issues adjusting to the UK education system We had come from the US, and Biology is taught differently, and she was really struggling - she went from an A student in the US, to failing in her A level Biology. Gareth worked diligently with my daughter for 4 months, getting her prepared for her A levels. He was kind, generous with his time, and deeply caring as a person - he would go out of his way to check in on her. My daughter turned her grade around from failing marks to a B! And her teacher thought she had a good chance of getting a A if they had done the actual test this year. Her admission to her first choice university was assured! Gareth is a phenomenal tutor. I cannot recommend him enough. jason
