Personal Description:

I have been tutoring as my main source of income for a year and really enjoy helping people learn about maths and science. I really appreciate the importance of these subjects at GCSE and A-Level, including in non-science based careers.

I am enrolled in a Schools Direct training course, and will be completing my initial teacher training in Secondary Science in summer 2018.

After gaining an upper second class honours BSc in Veterinary Science from the Royal Veterinary College, University of London (please note that I am not a vet), I chose to continue at the same institution to undertake my PhD in animal vision, completing my research in the Animal Welfare Research Group. Although my PhD subject was rooted in biology, it involved undergraduate level maths and a thorough grasp of physics.

I live in Clevedon with my wife (who is a vet), a cat, two rabbits and a variety of other pets. I am a volunteer Educational Speaker for Cats Protection and a member of Bristol Hackspace.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring GCSE Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, as well as A-Level Mathematics and Biology since September 2015. All of my students have achieved a minimum of their predicted grade so far.

I am enrolled in a Schools Direct training course, and will be completing my initial teacher training in Secondary Science in summer 2018.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy providing a relaxed, but structured session when I tutor. I typically try to get the student to lead the discussion, asking relevant questions to prompt when necessary. As such I can determine the strengths and weaknesses in the student's knowledge and concentrate my effort appropriately.
