I estimate I have at least 6000 hours of experience, having been a tutor since 2011. I initially started teaching Maths and Physics to Engineering students at University and I gradually expanded into secondary school level tuition. I have worked full time as a tutor since 2012 and during that time I have taught Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering.
I have taught A Levels, IGCSE/GCSE, IB, Pre-U, AP and I have covered nearly every exam board including Edexcel, OCR, AQA, WJEC. All of my students are seeking to get into top Univeristies.
What makes me a good tutor is my ability to break down a subject and cover it in a particular order so that a student who might not have a good understanding can understand how to progress through the topics. It doesn't hurt that I have a sense of humour and make my lessons actually fun and enjoyable.
I have just retired after 40 years teaching chemistry. Head of Chemistry for the last 35 years and in Charge of Science for the last 22 years. Winner of the 2016 Royal Society of Chemistry Education Award, I have an extensive website and YouTube Channel to provide post lesson support. A home tutor of GCE Chemistry, using CCEA, AQA and EDEXCEL specifications.
I recently took up a senior position with the CCEA examining team for GCE Chemistry and as a result I am unable to tutor students for that specification.
Comfortable with teaching online using the Spires platform, I have an enormous bank of teaching and assessment resources available at the click of a mouse.
Seven years experience of tutoring.
Individualised and differentiated programmes of work subject to agreement with student including homework where appropriate.
Physics problems solved collaboratively.
Past paper practice.
Guidance and step by step help with returned mock exam papers.
