Jonathan

Leeds Tutor

Hailing from Leeds and honors graduate of Warwick and Bradford universities with degrees in chemistry and optometry respectively, I am a confident individual, one who takes pride in his high levels of patience and natural ability as a communicator.

My own parents guidance has led to the privilege of attaining two honors degrees and to have researched, under scholarship, quantum chemistry and theoretical biology at Leeds and York universities.

My degree in optometry has given me a valuable insight into the professional world, having worked as an optician for 2 years, and an instinct for the personalities that are best suited to the medical courses. So i have a wide breath of experience concerning all areas of the scientific world.

Although my life has been immersed in education I have always kept in touch with my working class heritage which is firmly rooted in market trading.

This has afforded me a sense of social and cultural awareness rarely seen in balance with the world of academia. I believe this further advances my capacity to connect with a wider audience of students.

Accordingly, I feel perfectly poised to comprehend and then relate all aspects of the scientific and mathematical world to others in an approachable and tangible way.

Tutoring Experience

Apart from being a father, my main main teaching experience is through tutorials. I have taught students of all ages, stages and abilities in the physical, biological and mathematical sciences with great success and I hope the "comments" left on my page speak for themselves.

From standard primary mathematics to adults studying degree level chemistry I have taught at all levels. The majority of my work however is with A level and degree level students.

My A level students have gone on to study undergraduate degrees (often undergrad masters) in computer science, physics, mathematics, mechanical engineering, bio-medical science, biochemistry, optometry, dentistry, chemistry, chemical engineering, psychology, architecture, medicine, accounting and finance, and even law.

Many of these students have gone to study at some of the countries most reputable universities such as York, Warwick, Manchester, Nottingham, Exeter, Bath, Durham, Leeds and Newcastle to name a few.

Tutoring Approach

As well as the academic side of tuition, developing temprement and exam technique is also part of the key to succeeding and as such is a key part to the tutorials - particularly at exam season.

I also hold group tutorials at a discounted rate depending on the number of students attending.

In short my primary aim is to ensure the best exam results possible.
