Information About Jonathan - Leeds tutor - (24 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Jonathan:
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.
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.
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.

Jonathan is super tutor .He is patient ,encouraging ,enthusiastic and adaptable. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subjects he teaches . He explains concepts very clearly and makes topics interesting and enjoyable .
He is professional and reliable .
I would highly recommend Jonathan .
His subject knowledge is second to none and he his highly recommendable.
His tutoring style has given me so much self belief and confidence I know I will pass my maths QTS test.
I resat all of my AS level and came out with a B overall at A-level chemistry.Jonathan was a massive help with my resits as he really helped me understand the AS content. He had many methods of explaining areas I had difficulty with and was always very patient. As I didn't take A-level maths as an option I often really struggled with the mathematics involved with the chemistry exams. This is where Jonathan helped me the most and over the year I became increasingly confident in performing calculations. Overall; a reliable, friendly and knowledgeable tutor!
although we've not met yet and Hayley hasn't had the p;leasure of your tutoring skills, I can provide this initial feedback.
The concensus in the house (me, my wife and duaghter) all thought your profile looked interesting, the photo is good and we got an over all good first impression.
Having received exams results over the summer I i am pleased to say I did very well obtaining a much higher average mark than I received for January modules. I Showed particular improvement in physical chemistry (the area Jonathan tutored me in) going from 32% to 63%.
incredibly patient and helps her to build on what she already knows. We can't recommend him highly enough.
