About me

I am based in the North East of England and have been a passionate science communicator since I was a postgraduate. I studied Genetics at Newcastle University followed by an M.Phil in Molecular Biology at the University of Cambridge. After completing a PGCE in Secondary Science I taught A level and GCSE before moving into industry and pursuing a career in the pharmaceutical industry. I am currently involved in the development and manufacture of a wide range of active pharmaceutical ingredients, I work a shift pattern which gives me plenty of time to teach. As a postgraduate, I discovered I had a flair for explaining complex scientific concepts which led me into tutoring. My approach is to simplify as much as possible while still covering all of the relevant material - it is often possible to explain difficult concepts much more easily in a 1 to 1 situation compared to a classroom with a large number of people competing for attention.

I have a very informal, flexible approach and absolutely encourage students to build their confidence and ask as many questions as they like, again this is something that's much easier in a 1 to 1 setting. Please feel free to drop me a message if you feel you would benefit from some sessions or would like any more information.

Tutor Experience

I am a secondary science teacher now working in the pharmaceutical industry. I have over 15 years experience tutoring A level and IB Biology as well as all 3 sciences at GCSE. I combine excellent subject knowledge with a relaxed, informal friendly approach.

I have also taught undergraduate students specialising in the field of Genetics and am available for help with dissertation / report writing.

Topic Expertise

I am very experienced in tutoring pupils of all ability and background in the sciences. I have experience of all the major exam boards (AQA, OCR, EDEXCEL) and have also tutored IB students.

I am also available to help undergraduates studying Genetics modules as part of their course.

Testimonials

Tim is a very pleasant, knowledgeable man and a good teacher. My son has enjoyed his sessions with Tim and is benefiting from the one to one tuition. I would happily recommend Tim.

Really happy with the progress Tim is making with my daughter with her A Level Biology Course. Highly recommend.

Tim is a fantastic biology tutor. He gives 100% to each lesson and I would have no hesitation in recommending him. My sons confidence has grown, he has a much better understanding of the different topics and he thoroughly enjoys the lessons.
