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 Science job with Ali: 1-2 hrs/week - For level 7
Gareth's last review in Science from Zoe: TBD Great, as always.
I specialise in teaching GCSE (AQA) and IGCSE (Edexcel) Biology and Chemistry. I am familiar with the requirements of the different exam boards, and can tailor my teaching specifically to your needs. Homework is set online each week to consolidate understanding, and to gain practice with answering exam-style questions.
Throughout my medical degree, I have successfully helped prospective university students and medical students with their application process, including personal statement review, interview preparation (panel interviews, multiple mini-interviews, Oxbridge interviews) and UKCAT/BMAT revision.

Andy's last review in Science from David: A demonstration of the classroom , how lessons would work and a couple of activities for your two girls. Probably they can do the demo together and then we can decide how to proceed. The class was excellent. Hired.
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.

Tom's last completed Science job with Alice: Over 2 hrs/week - to increase grades from C to A
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.

Chloe's last review in Science from saima: Physics-Background radiation and contamination Half life Nuclear equations The tutor did not start lesson so no lesson took place as scheduled. Not happy.
I have years of experience both tutoring and mentoring young people, and am now working as a chemistry teacher, so I have access to useful resources, across KS3, 4 and 5. This means I can ensure the right support to help students truly understand the topic and get the best grade possible.
