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.
Shahid's last completed Physics job with Michelle: Intensive - My son was disappointed in his Physics mock results and is looking for intensive tuition from now until the exams in May, Basically, one on one via Skype (we live in Switzerland) to answer questions and make sure that his knowledge base is good.
Shahid's last review in Physics from Kasia: I have an extra time as a student has taken an earlier class, 4:30pm UK time is fine Great!
I have been tutoring and teaching for over 14 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
Gareth's last completed Physics job with Shailendra: 1-2 hrs/week - My 15 old son studying in a grammar school would like to aim for higher physics and hence wants a strong teacher
Gareth's last review in Physics from Josiah: Physics PAPER 2 REVISION Good Lesson. Helped with equations and explanations in quite a small amount of time. Very helpful
After completing a Masters in Astrophysics and BA in Natural Sciences at Cambridge University (grade 2.1), I received my teaching qualification (PGCE) in Science from Oxford University. I have been teaching Physics and Science in a secondary school for three years. Every student I have taught A level to has met or exceeded their target grade, (most received either an A* or an A).
I have extensive experience of all topics and know what examiners of GCSE and A level are looking for. I will provide exam questions and ensure that all areas of the relevant specification are covered in enough detail. I will focus on helping you to understand the subject deeply and know how to apply your knowledge in exam questions. With these tools your confidence and enjoyment of Physics / Science will definitely increase!

Oliver's last completed Physics job with Yasmine: Intensive - Cosmology theoretical physics high energy astrophysics . Review for exams in May
I am a volunteer for a number of organisations which aim to help disadvantaged students reach university and have tutored a number of students to success in their exams so I have a lot of experience of working with young people and helping them to reach their potential. I am happy to help as a subject specific tutor for GCSE or A-Level, or help students through the sometimes daunting university application process and admissions tests.
About my tutorials:
Sessions are always student-led. I plan tutorials which reflect the student's level of understanding, giving access to notes, including suggested exam questions, which the student can add to during the tutorial, or use as a memory-aid following the tutorial.
I have received lots of positive feedback about this approach.
I can also help students through questions or tasks which they bring, and the best tutorials involve this collaborative input.
The pace of sessions is determined by the student, and I am happy to go through any topic with a number of different approaches until we find one which the student finds helpful.

Caroline's last completed Physics job with Nikolai: 1-2 hrs/week - Looking for a Physics tutor for my son, Nikolai, who is currently in Year 12. He is doing Physics A-level OCR (A). Must have experience with this board exam. Finishing school term at the end of June and have flexibility with schedule come July. Through the remainder of June and from next September, will need someone available weekends or evenings during the school week. Looking for tutor through end of next Academic year. He will be unavailable between 29/7-16/8 due to summer exam revision course. Thank you.
The subjects that I primarily tutor are Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. My 4 years of tutoring experience has found me tutoring students from year 8 to year 11 and providing valuable SAT preparation lessons.
I am fully aware of the GCSE/pre-GSCE subject matter and requirements. I have tutored numerous international students and their improvements stand testament to my ability to tutor various syllabuses. In addition, the 2 years of calculus, 2 years of chemistry and 1 year of physics that I completed at university, has adequately prepared me for all content appearing in different syllabuses.
Most of my client base is a result of referrals from other students, due to their improvements and belief within my tutoring capabilities. My tutoring ethos is built around a core of patience, passion and pride within my student's success. My experience has taught me valuable techniques for explaining difficult concepts in an easy to understand manner. I always recommend practicing the covered content after the lesson, and provide my own problems/questions if there aren't any available. I also provide lessons for overall test/exam preparation where I provide useful time saving tips among other things.

I will need multiple lessons within the next week. thanks.
Tom's last review in Physics from kieran: Very good communication, well prepared for the class, and good understanding of both the topic and what was required for the exam, 5 stars!
I did my professional teaching course last year but had to give up teaching after qualifying for a great PhD opportunity. My favourite part of teaching was spending time with small groups and helping them realise they could do things they thought they couldn't.
I predominately taught GCSE and A-level classes In all three of the sciences. I also had to teach quite a lot on maths within the Physics A-level as well as helping out in GCSE maths classes. I really enjoyed teaching the sciences to people who were struggling as it would give rise to the "OH I get it now!" moment that most teachers crave.
Before teaching I studied at the University of Nottingham where I gained my masters in Biochemistry and Genetics. During this course I was lucky enough to study a large variety of topics as well as take part in research projects at the university which gave rise to further works. I thoroughly enjoyed my degree as well as my research which is why I am now studying for my PhD.
