Geoff

Prudhoe Tutor

Calm,relaxed with a helpful approach,but firm when necessary.
I have many years mentoring experience in a variety of industries, such as chemical, manufacturing and construction.
I have a broad general knowledge and qualifications to Masters level. My degree is in Chemistry/Materials and my masters is in Business Administration (MBA)

Tutoring Experience

I am an experienced manufacturing and construction manager. I have had many years experience of developing people (young and old) through workplace NVQs. I also had the pleasure of instructing and developing young people for many years through my role as Cub Scout and Scout Leader. I was also able to assist my four children through their GCSEs/A levels- the highlight of this was helping my daughter to improve from a predicted D in Chemistry to an A. I am patient and kind but firm when it is needed, travelling is not an issue up to 15 miles.Although semi-retired I have started the process of becoming a qualified teacher, and am doing my observation days at a local school.

Tutoring Approach

Calm, relaxed, patient but maintains focus and discipline.
I use the syllabus as a structure to follow, but try to relate the subject matter to the world outside of teaching.
