## Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified teacher.

I did my PhD at Oxford University and I have been doing examiner jobs (marking papers, and setting up exam questions) for OCR, Edexcel, IB and AQA for over 10 years.

I am offering GCSE/A-Level/IB Maths and Chemistry tutorials.

## Tutoring Experience:

Most schools focus on conveying a large amount of information to their students. But for most people that is not enough to create genuine understanding and an ability to answer exam questions. That is why many students, regardless of their ability, seek to get extra help from a personal tutor.

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in tackling exam questions. My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style.

First comes an initial conversation with student and parent - invaluable in establishing the direction tuition should take. I normally ask which exam board, what papers student would be sitting. Then I begin to devise a course of study to address gaps in knowledge and build skills, tailoring material to the student. I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique.

## Tutoring Approach:

An email below was from one of my current students - I have been teaching this pupil for 3 weeks, and I offer him 2 hours Chemistry lesson per week. Last Tuesday his parents wanted me to give him 1 hour lesson in Physics for his following day exam. After just 1 hour lesson, he has achieved grade B from Grade D.

–––––––––––

Dear Dr ***,

I greatly appreciate for taking the time and effort for the productive lesson on Tuesday. I received 26/41 in my Physics Test and it was a 41 minute test in total (Our teacher said the lesson beforehand that the test was 1 hour long). (Equivalent to 63% - B Grade), and I received the full 5 marks on the graph question which was very similar to the question that you gave me!

Thank you for Tuesday's lesson. Although I found that I did make quite a few careless errors in my exam paper, I felt that it was a highly productive lesson and I have already seen great progress as I found that the time that you went through with me with those questions was extremely beneficial for me. I have got my Physics Exam Paper with me at home so you can see it tomorrow if necessary.

See you tomorrow at 14:00 pm,

Take Care,

Best Regards,

***
