Map for David (Dr)

Personal Description:

Hi, my name is David. I have a degree in marine biology (first class honours) and a PhD in marine science, both from the University of Southampton. I can tutor any science subject up to GCSE and biology up to AS and A level. I have a good sense of humour, am patient, easygoing and have a real passion for science.

Tutoring Experience:

In the past I have tutored members of my family in biology and chemistry up to A level. I spent 3 months of my degree on what is called the “undergraduate ambassadors scheme”, which provided an introduction to teaching techniques within a local school environment, shadowing teachers and acting as a classroom assistant. During my time as a PhD student I also spent a considerable amount of time instructing undergraduates.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a light-hearted, good-humoured approach to teaching. Hopefully this will make you feel at ease with the subject. My focus is always on developing understanding and enthusiasm, not just teaching to pass exams. However, once you have a firm understanding of the relevant concepts, we will also look at how you can improve your exam technique in order to make sure your understanding transfers into top class exam results.

Our first session (which I do not charge for) will explore what your goals are and how I may be able to help you achieve them. From there, if you wish to continue your tuition with me, I will tailor sessions specifically to your needs.
