Personal Description:

Currently a researcher in clinical trials I have also worked in the chemical industry designing processes for pharmaceutical ingredients and in hospitals designing pharmacy databases. My real-world experience in applied biology and chemistry gives me an eye for detail which complements the 'bare bones' approach often taught in local schools and further enhances the tutee's understanding of the subject.

Tutoring Experience:

Over the last 25 years I have provided workshops, practical sessions, tuition and educational presentations to children as young as 10 and adults as old as 60.

Tutoring Approach:

I start with the syllabus and find the text book(s) closest to the subject. For WJEC that is quite straightforward as a number of specific texts are available. I also provide past papers for the tutee to work on in their own time then go over the answers at subsequent tuition sessions using the pre-prepared model answer sheets. Finally, I go over the syllabus with the tutee and look for additional information to supplement answers with, for example, new drug developments, new material applications or new reviews for plays, novels and poems as these can often be the difference between an A and an A-star. This approach can be challenging and does not work for everyone. When this is the case I am always happy to discuss lesson structure prior to teaching so we can together tailor-make something more in line with your expectations.
