Information About Paul - Chard tutor - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Paul:
I have lived in the Southwest for about 15 years whilst my children have grown up. When not working (teaching), I try to get outdoors as much as possible - kayaking, cycling and occasionally just walking. I feel fortunate to live in a place where all of these activities are worthwhile.
Currently, I work at a sixth form college teaching chemistry A level. I have over 20 years science teaching experience in a range of secondary schools including over 10 years at Holyrood Academy in Chard. Additionally, I have taught physics up to A'level and all sciences at GCSE. As a practising teacher, I keep up to date with the specification changes and the changing examinations. For over 15 years, I have also marked A level exam papers for OCR so I am very familiar with the requirements for accurate answers including the differences from other exam boards which I teach.
The requirements of each student are quite different and being able to recognise these differences and respond quickly to them are key to successful tutoring. I am guided by the needs identified by the student but can also help them to recognise those areas where more support is needed. With over 20 years teaching experience, I have a wide range of different approaches to problem solving and revision techniques. In tutoring, I ask a lot of questions of the students. To make effective progress, it is important to establish a dialogue where the student if comfortable to explain their understanding and not be afraid to make mistakes.
