I am a specialist Computer Science tutor/teacher with more than 20 years experience of private tutoring and teaching class based students. I hold a Degree and Masters Degree in Computer Science. I'm fully conversant with all exam board specifications including AQA, OCR, WJEC, EdExcel, IGCSE, Cambridge International, etc.
The subject I teach is my hobby. I have extensive experience of providing online tuition to students all around the UK, Europe and as far as Hong Kong.
Connecting and having a rapport with the student is key. I have two aims, one is to teach the topic within the specification. The other, more important, is to develop the student's confidence.
In addition, I am a full member of The Tutors Association. This is a professional body that ensures best practices and ethics by members.
Myles's last completed Computer Science job with Coleman: 1-2 hrs/week - I would like to learn about more details on igcse Computer Science OCR topics.
Myles's last review in Computer Science from Mark: Amazing!! Thank you!!!
My tuition style is based on the recognition and understanding that each student has their own way of achieving their highest possible results. I fully recognise that in private tuition, the student does not have to compromise and can get the best tutor to suit their individual needs. I try to accommodate the very busy and restrictive schedules of both parents and students, including boarding school students and distance universities. My aim is always to try to help the students achieve their targets.
Yoram's last completed Computer Science job with anil: 1-2 hrs/week - I got all 9s in my GSCEs and plan to do maths and computer science at Oxford but have not taken computer science as an option at GCSE or Alevel so I need help in applying to the university .
Yoram's last review in Computer Science from Fanny: foc discussion Great
I hold an MSc and a Ph.D in computer science from Cardiff University. I have worked as a post doctoral research associate in the computer science department of UCL. I have years of hands on industry experience and a few years experience in teaching undergraduate/postgraduate students A Levels and GCSEs.

Thanasis's last review in Computer Science from Amina : HCI coursework and possible go through the project Beneficial session
I am a full-time Computer Science teacher and guide my daytime students to impressive grades in Computing. My keenest students in years 9 and 10 are already working towards an AS-Level in Computer Science to supplement and support the GCSE course. I set my students' goals high.
I'm very adept at helping students cut through confusion, focus on precise language and find the focus in theory topics to deliver mark-scheme friendly answers in examinations.
Peter's last completed Computer Science job with Ada: 1-2 hrs/week - Focus on Computer Science GCSE exams
Peter's last review in Computer Science from K: Paper 2 Mock and Feedback Danny found the 2 hour lesson in which he completed an old exam paper very beneficial
Firstly, it is crucial with exam based subjects that a tutee should target qualified teachers (with QTS) as they have conversed with the current changes that have taken place with GCSE and A-Levels. They are aware of syllabus amendments and have a range of tools to support how to interpret command verbs within the exam.
I am a qualified teacher (with QTS) that has over 10 years leading several departments in Computing, Business, ICT and Design across a range of qualifications and exam boards. As a result of this and exam board work (working as an exam marker), I feel I understand what is required to pass the exams.
The exam board experience stems over a range of exam boards (OCR, Pearsons, AQA and CIE) completing a variety of roles, from verifying coursework to exam marking and leading exam markers.
Both teaching and exam board commitments compliment each other, seeing the teaching misconceptions and to get the exam marks, with great success in my teaching.
I have a good understanding of assessment needs to qualify for the higher Level questions in exam papers which have proven successful (primarily focusing on the command verbs in the question) which can be a focus within the online lessons.
Luke's last completed Computer Science job with Suzy: 1-2 hrs/week - I’m looking for a CS tutor for my son who’s currently in Yr 10. He loves CS and he’s pretty good at it (he created a terrain-navigation AI for his DofE and Ioves coding all sorts). However most of this is self taught and unfortunately the quality of teaching of the actual GCSE Edexcel CS curriculum at his school is very lacking. We are worried he will not have the knowledge and skills needed to do well in his actual exams. We’d like someone to work with him to assess what level he’s currently at, to identify the gaps and to ensure he’s taught the syllabus properly.
Luke's last review in Computer Science from Suzy: GCSE Computer Science (Edexcel) Class was brilliant, really helped to fill in the missing bits of info and to cement prev knowledge. :)
Kei's last review in Computer Science from Ali: Chapter 18 vey good
I have over 12 years' experience in teaching and tutoring in Computer Science, from age 9 all the way through to Master's degree. Within Computer Science I have been able to support not only with developing a range of programming skills but also the theory of computer science.
Peter's last completed Computer Science job with Ruqaiyah: 1-2 hrs/week - I would like help in preparing for my A levels, im in year 12 and would likehelp also preparing for the mat Maths and computer science joint section.
Peter's last review in Computer Science from Ruqaiyah: Introductory session, set targets and schedule. Start initial tutoring Good introduction he seems like a good tutor
My passion for teaching is evident; I am constantly looking for innovative ways of teaching students and have recently gained many viewers on my YouTube channel which talks through exam-style questions and techniques.
Joshua 's last completed Computer Science job with Tom: Occasional - I am struggling with coming up with a suitable project (and resources for said project) for my NEA. I would like to do something to do with networking and python. I have looked at ideas like a file server (probably too ambitious) or a packet sniffer (not sure how ambitious). I am studying my A level Online, the exam board is OCR, and need help selecting a suitable topic.
Joshua 's last review in Computer Science from Tom: Very useful and enjoyable lesson on computing coursework and general topics.
I have successfully tutored a number of students in mathematics, physics, and computing in the past, at both A-level and GCSE. Among my most notable successes was helping a student who did not have classes in Further Maths available at school to achieve an A (highest grade at the time).
The best tutor will guide the student through a process of self-learning and tailor this skilfully to the individual student. It is paramount to properly motivate the pupil to ask the right questions to himself, whilst instilling an interest in the subject as much as possible. The tutor should generally enhance the learning experience beyond what any textbook or routine exercises can provide. With respect to mistakes, it is always important to be gentle and sympathetic, and encouragement should be given when progress is made, though not to the degree of fostering overconfidence. In brief, I believe in a highly interactive and open dialogue between teacher and student.
