Are having problems with subject knowledge?
Or perhaps you are struggling with confidence and exam technique?
Do you feel like you have the knowledge and you just feel you can’t put it right in exams or assignments?
Do you feel you are not reaching your full potential for some reason?
If one of the above questions apply to you look no further, you are on the right tutor profile.

I am energetic and innovative tutor with ability to bring lessons to life and cultivate an eager and active student engagement by adapting teaching style to suit the needs of different students. I have an excellent knowledge of the techniques and styles required to do well in exams.

I have a BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE, and QTLS. My expertise in structured and strategic tutoring can make a huge difference in confidence, skill set, grade obtained, choice of A levels, university, or even a career. For a boutique and bespoke tuition experience that does work and delivers tangible results please contact me today.

I am an expert examiner and moderator with Edexcel, and I am currently Head of Biology in a Sixth Form College. With over with 11 years of GCSE and A level examining experience and over 20 years of real classroom teaching experience, I consider myself to be an elite tutor and my record speaks for itself and I am probably one of the best science tutors on this site. I recently led a science department of a tough Sixth form college to first successful Ofsted result (October 2019) in 19 years of its existence. I have tutored AS/A2 Biology/Chemistry and IGCSE/KS4/KS3.

I have obtained excellent results with my students because my lessons and resources have been fine-tuned and differentiated over many years. I have tutored over 300 private UK and International students with outstanding results, please see my feedback. I have successfully tutored students who have in the past three years entered Oxford, Warwick, Nottingham, UCL, Kings, and many others. I have an extensive array of fine-tuned exam board-specific resources specific (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, Edexcel, EDUQAS / WJEC) for teaching, examination, and homework.
I offer both one-to-one and online lessons. I have been doing online tuition for the past 4 years, but it has certainly seen a huge increase in popularity in the last 8 months, however many parents are not familiar with how this works. For an in-depth explanation on how this can be beneficial to you, your child's life and more on how it works, please contact me. The last 5 reviews on my profile are from online clients. I feel online lessons are more efficient than conventional face to face, with no travel expenses and time wasted through travel. I like to include parents as much as they feel they can, to ensure the best possible outcome.

At the moment I am working on my Ph.D. which I hope to complete within the next five years. I have an interest in nature photography, love the outdoors and traveling.

Tutoring Approach

MY STRATEGIC TUTORING OBJECTIVES:
 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 knowledge, application of scientific Concepts and how Science Works.

APPROACH:

My tutoring sessions are designed to help students seeking academic excellence achieve their greatest potential. they consist of the following core elements.
Define
Because I know that I know a student can achieve when their needs are properly understood and when their learning style is fully engaged. I start by defining a student’s needs - understanding a student's learning style and auditing the students’ strengths and areas of opportunity by doing this I will have a clear view of the student and know precisely where to start.

Plan
After an assessment, I plan and create a bespoke differentiated action plan that is unique to the student so that the student can achieve success quickly.

Deliver
Using peer-reviewed motivation strategies and techniques I deliver excellent tuition, working on building knowledge, confidence, and more importantly on practicing and polishing study and exam techniques. After every tutoring lesson, a record of progress is logged and plans for the next lesson are made. A progress review is done after every 5 sessions. Individualised worksheets are on a weekly basis to reinforce concepts learned.

Assess
Because results matter to you and me. I constantly assess and track progress to engage your child.

Prepare
I run an intensive exam preparation program to set your child for success.
