Information About Michael - Nottingham tutor - (4 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Michael:
I am a fully qualified Science teacher, with 28 years of successful teaching experience.
33 years experience of teaching Science in schools, and a home tutor for 29 of those years
Ex Head of Biology and Head of Science. GCSE examiner.
I teach all aspects of Science at Key Stage 3 and GCSE. I have taught many students with a broad range of special educational needs.
Very experienced teacher and tutor of Biology at AS and A2 level, successfully meeting the needs of all students, from those needing a rescue package, to those applying to Russell Group universities, medical and dental schools.
As an expert tutor, I will guide you in building up your understanding of Science, so that you make your own sensible "story" rather than feeling you are carrying a collection of random, unrelated facts.
Exams don't have to be a trial. I will coach you in exam techniques so that you understand what a question is asking you to do, and can tackle it with real confidence.
In our sessions, most of the talking should be yours: explaining something for yourself is a powerful and effective way to learn. I'm still surprised at how much laughter there is, too!
Good tuition is good value for money. Every session with me is planned to bring a solid, identifiable gain in your performance.

He was predicted a C at GCSE by school and actually got an A with Mike's help. He's currently studying A level Biology and says Mike's explanations are excellent. Mike puts a lot of time and thought into how to explain concepts and processes; he uses models, illustrations and clear examples to communicate difficult areas effectively. His enthusiasm is infectious and his exam tips have proved invaluable. Highly recommend.
