Information About John - Knottingley tutor - (10 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated John:
I have extensive experience of teaching the Sciences to student in schools and colleges, as well as private tuition. I have a friendly and relaxed approach, and I aim to achieve an in depth understanding of the requirements of the student at an early stage.
I will cover the areas of Doncaster, Leeds, Bradford and York.
I am frequently in the Blackpool area at weekends and offer tuition in this area as well.
I have taught Science, predominantly Chemistry, in the private sector for over 30 years. I am now semi-retired. My results in all subjects have been consistently very good, often exceeding expectations. I am thoroughly familiar with the requirements of the examination boards, and with the techniques necessary in order to be successful in public examinations.
My approach to tutoring is to ensure that I cater for individual needs of the student and hence gain their confidence at an early stage. I try to ensure that students have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the course content and are then well practised in being able to apply it effectively in examination situations. Worksheets, books and past examination material are supplied as an integral part of the lesson. My aim is to ensure that I cater for the individual needs of the student, building on their strengths and attending to any weaknesses and giving them confidence in their own abilities.

We can't recommend John enough.
However my details were obtained without further clarification of times/availability etc which is the normal initial procedure, and one which I have carried out many times with no problems.
The times when I have been available have not been suitable
Impressive delivery and my son really feeling he is gaining confidence in the topic.
I often sit in the same room and have found his dialogue to be very interesting for me too.
We would strongly recommend Jihn as a tutor.
