Personal Description:

Hello, I'm a qualified medical doctor who left clinical practice last year to focus on a start-up software business.

This means I now have spare time at evenings and weekends for my other passion, teaching.

I recently moved to Derby and am new to

Tutoring Experience:

While I was a school and university student, I tutored school children in the science subjects and as a doctor I used to run teaching sessions for the medical students.

I also teach adult learners, including co-running specialist surgical training courses for qualified doctors.

However, my keenest interest is in teaching secondary school- and college-level physics, biology and chemistry as this is the point where science can really become fascinating, engaging and, dare I say it, even a little fun! Sometimes, for children to really engage with science, they often need a little one-to-one encouragement.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm happy to travel to you to teach. I am broadly flexible to meet the tutee's needs, however I insist on always providing tuition in a family area with other family members around.

I prefer to structure my teaching around areas of the syllabus where the tutee feels weakest or has the greatest concerns.

I also place great emphasis on teaching "exam technique", helping the student to give not just a correct answer in exams, but rather to give the correct answer which will yield them the most marks!
