Personal Description:

I am an Online Specialist Tutor and expert examiner and moderator with Pearson - Edexcel UK and I am currently Head of Biology in a Sixth Form College and I also run a tutoring Company in the UK. I believe all students deserve to get the best there is out there, with 19 years tutoring experience I consider myself to be an elite tutor and I am probably the best Science/Biology tutor in South Essex and my record speaks for itself. I have a track record of success with most students achieving well. I have taught Primary, Secondary and High School Science and Maths Biology and for many years and I have helped many students with study skills, revision techniques, assignment writing and exam preparation. Past tutees have obtained excellent results; see feedback from my current and former tutees. I have crafted, refined and fine tuned my tutoring approach over many years and I now believe I am at the top of my game.
Selecting the right tutor with the right expertise can make a huge difference in confidence, skills set and grade obtained by a student. This can also make a huge difference to a student's choice of A levels, University or even a career and I believe this is where excellent structured and strategic tutoring can help. I have successfully tutored students who have in past three years entered University of Oxford, University of Warwick, University of Nottingham , Kings College and many others. For tried and tested quality tutoring contact me now.
I am an expert examiner with Edexcel and OCR Exam boards. I have an excellent knowledge of the techniques and styles required to do well in exams. I also have an excellent understanding of the different specifications/syllabuses AQA, EDEXCEL, OCR and the IB. I have a BSc and an MSc in Science. At the moment I am working on my PhD which I hope to complete within the next five years. I have an interest in nature photography, love outdoors and traveling.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 3800 hours of private tutoring. I am an Expert and premier tutor in junior cycle KS2/KS3/KS4/GCSE/IGSCE Double/Triple Science and senior cycle /A2 Biology and Chemistry.

========================SUMMER 2018 RESULTS==================================
Congratulations once again to my students who have done exceedingly well.
Jack got a B - I took on Jack in the last term of his year 12. He was working around E/D grade. I worked with him and he improved his subject knowledge, exam technique and confidence. Armed with a B in Biology is off to study BioMed at a top Russesll Group Uni. Well done Jack and Best wishes.

Students who set GCSE did so on the new specification. Students faced many challenges but those who chose to join me and my organisation did very well. Most students improved their working grades.

Arif - (A*, A, A*). Arif is an academically gifted student and he put in a lot of effort in his work. His working grade when he joined me was a AAB. He will be studying his A levels at a top grammar school. Arif will be joining me as an assistant.

Peter got B,A. When Peter joined me and my organisation he was working at CC He improved his working grade and confidence when he joined my intensive revision sessions. He is off to study at a local Sixth Form.

Callum - Callum got C I took on Callum 3 months before exams and his working grade was E/G. I believe that of all students I have tutored he has made the greatest grade for grade improvement. I am so proud of the progress he made. He is off to study his level 3 course in a college. Well done Callum.

Kayo - Got a A*A when she joined my organisation she was working at AB. She worked hard and she is off to study A levels at a top grammar school.

Sef- Got a A*A*A* when he joined my organisation he was working at BBB level. Sef is an excellent student of science and he will do well at grammar school.

************************************SUMMER 2017 RESULTS***************************************************
2017 results can only be described as "AWE-INSIPIRING". Results keep on improving year on year.

Katie got an A (predicted grade C). She is off to study at a Russell Group Uni.

Becky - Found Physics very challenging before I tutored her but with a carefully structured intensive revision programme she clinched an A and she is off to study A levels at a Grammar school

Noel - A brilliant scholar very mathematical but found the theory and explanations part of IGCSE Physics challenging however with my bespoke and carefully structured tutoring he improved significantly and got an A*!!! he is off to study at a grammar school.

Nick - An excellent academic operative. He did IGCSE and found exam technique a challenge with my tried and tested methods he clinched an A*!!!! and he is taking his A levels at a top grammar school.

Sophie - Cheerful student willing to go the extra mile. Without doubt one of the most hardworking students I have tutored. Found Physics a challenge with a carefully crafted tutoring schedule she got an A and she is off to study A levels.

*******************************************SUMMER 2016 RESULTS******************************************************

Omar got an A star! (Suffice to mention that I have tutored Omar since GCSE. He got AAA for his GCSE, and A in AS Biology). He is off to study at a Russell Group University.

Nonsy got a B in her AS retake Modules. Prior to my tutoring she had an E in AS Biology with my structured and intensive tutoring and focus on EXAM TECHNIQUE she did well and she is off to Uni to study at her first choice Uni.

**************************************SUMMER 2015 RESULTS**************************************************
AS BIOLOGY - Omar got an A
A2 BIOLOGY- Manav got a B, Eliot got an A

****************************************SUMMER 2014*************************************************************
A2 The results were excellent
Tasneem, by her own addmission (see feeback) never thought she could do well in A2 Biology. With my structured tutoring she managed to clinch a high B with only a few marks from an A. She got into her first choice of Uni.
Lucy was predicted a lower C in her final A2 Biology exams with a carefully managed tutoring programme she managed to get a High B with only a few marks off an A. She got into her first choice of Uni.

Jess got a D in AS and she managed a B in her A2 and she is off to her first choice Uni.

As usual GCSE results were awesome all students getting AAA in science.

**************************************SUMMER 2012 RESULTS***********************************************
Both A Level and GCSE results were great!!!

Student A moved grades from a DC in Double Science to BB (second attempt). She went on to do AS Biology. Student B got an A*AA in Triple Science on her first attempt.

A Level
Mel moved 3 grades from a grade C to an A*(second attempt) and went on to study at a Russell Group Uni. What a remarkable achievement!!!
Hannah moved from a predicted grade of a D to a B and went on to first choice Uni.

Tutoring Approach:
 Audit level of understanding and attainment.
 Carry out a Learning Styles Questionnaire.
 Produce bespoke differentiated tutorial support lessons.
 Practice student centred tutoring.
 Practice and polish STUDY and EXAM techniques FOCUSING on scientific and mathematical knowledge, application of scientific Concepts and how Science Works.

Approach to Grinds:

My tutoring sessions are designed to help students seeking academic excellence achieve their greatest potential. For each tutee I carry out a detailed Learning Skills Questionnaire (LSQ) and an audit of the strengths and weaknesses in the subject before tutorials begin. This gives me an indication of what method I will use in my tutoring. My tutoring is individualised to take into account the different methods of learning. I will differentiate my approach for each tutee depending on what is obtained from the initial audit. I will then focus on the problem areas while polishing EXAM and STUDY techniques as we go over worksheets and past papers.
After every tutoring lesson, a record of progress is made and plans for the next lesson are made. On completion of all sections in a chapter, an End of Topic assessment helps to recognise knowledge uptake and retention abilities. If on the basis of End of Topic Assessment problems are identified then appropriate remedial measures are taken to rectify the knowledge gaps. Emails with individualised worksheets will be sent on a regular basis to reinforce concepts learnt. Throughout the tutoring process, I will make sure that tutees make significant progress in the areas for improvement. Every effort will be made towards strengthening thinking skills so that top scores can be obtained in Science.
An individualised tutorial programme can be arranged for tutees who require intensive revision for exams or an ongoing tutorial support programme for tutees who want to complement lessons in order to consolidate their understanding of the subject
