Personal Description:

My name is Hywel and I’ve been tutoring biology since 2002 after receiving my bachelor of science at Reading University. I have completed a PGCE (post graduate certificate of education) in further education and have the relevant CRB checks.

Teaching Experience:

Currently playing on the top boards of the first division in the West Wales Chess League, I currently hold a grade of 1772. I have been teaching chess to newcomers of a local chess club, of which I am secretary, for many years and now teach chess in three private schools in the area. I currently tutor approximately eighty children from six to eleven, though I do also tutor teens and adults at the club. I have also lectured to adults and GCSE, holding a PGCE and CRB checks.

Teaching Approach:

I use puzzle workbooks, which i have designed myself, and a short lesson to help improve play, using the board to illustrate. After this, I play practice games with my student, showing them how to improve their game as we go along.
