Cheadle Tutor

I am a 49 year old father of three children living in Stockport. I have previously worked as a scientist at the University of Manchester and have now been tutoring for several years. I have a modern approach to tutoring and try to keep things fun and interesting.

Current holder of Enhanced DSB certificate.

Tutoring Experience

I have taught at every level including A level, GCSE and Primary. and helped pupils gain entry into grammar schools and some with bursaries. One of my biggest achievements is supporting an autistic student to achieve his goal of entry into Grammar school. I teach children with learning disabilities including Irlen syndrome and ADHD.
I am currently tutoring several children in year 5 to prepare for the 11+ /entrance exam for Grammar schools in the Trafford and Stockport. I am also teaching several A level and GCSE students in Maths and all the Sciences. I have an excellent track record of gaining the top grade.

I also have classroom experience in Primary schools, teaching mathematics and science to children in KS2 on a one-to-one basis.

Tutoring Approach

My teaching strategy for students preparing for a specific exams, is to concentrate on exam technique and completing past exam papers. For younger children who are struggling in school or need to catch up, I take each subject back to basics and provide strategies for learning.
