David

Colchester Tutor

I have been involved in science all my life with over 30 years of teaching experience at all levels from the ages of 11-14 to university students. I retired from university several years ago and now continue my teaching to inspire new generations of students who like me are fascinated by science and its associated subject areas.

Tutoring Experience

I have been teaching in Biology and its associated scientific areas for many years including maths and IT. I have taught in small groups and one to one tutoring at levels from the age of 11 years to university undergraduate level. This experience of teaching at a wide range of different levels has given me tutoring skills to appreciate the different approaches required by different tutees.

Tutoring Approach

I adopt an informal friendly approach to all tutees recognising that each tutee may well be a future distinguished scientist or mathematician. I find that often a tutee's problem is not one of knowledge but of exam technique which fails them. So tuition focuses on both improving the tutee's knowledge and their exam technique
