Map for John (Mr)


Personal Description:

I hold a B.Sc in Maths, B.SC(Hons) degree in Chemistry, and a Masters Degree (by research) in Organic Chemistry. I have worked as a Senior Research Chemist for a major pharmaceutical company for more than 30 years before retiring in 2009. I have been tutoring for many years and since my retirement, I am doing it full time.
I teach the following subjects:
Chemistry: GCSE, AS/A and Degree/post graduate levels
Biology: GCSE
English and Maths: Lower Secondary

Tutoring Experience:

I have helped students to achieve complete success in their exams. I am highly experienced coaching students from various boards such as OCR (Chem A), OCR Salters, AQA, EDEXEL and IB.
Most of my students improve their grades at least by two levels. In 2014 exams, a third of my AS/A level students achieved A/A* and another third B grades.

Sorry for not being able to call you back right after my exam. I did really well, I was confident about all my answers. Everything we went through came up. So thank you again very much!! I will definitely get in touch with you if I face any difficulties again and I will recommend you to my friends as well.
Thanks again!!

John has been my daughter’s Chemistry tutor for the last 6 months. We have found him to be very knowledgeable and helped her understand concepts better. He is also very good in explaining difficult topics and also navigating through revision papers and explaining what needs to be done to improve grades.He is very patient and kind which sets him apart. My daughter is an AS (Edexel board) student and this has reflected in her grades and confidence.He is an outstanding teacher and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Tutoring Approach:

My style of coaching is pretty much hands-on with plenty of practice using past papers and appropriate mark schemes.This is of course done taking into account of the students needs and focusing on the areas they may find challenging.
