Personal Description:

I offer private tuition in the comfort of your own home, or at my own premises in Durham City. I specialise in tutoring the Sciences and Mathematics for all ages and abilities, with a focus on personalised learning.

Qualified to Masters level in Physics and Astronomy, I have all the attributes necessary to aid your learning and develop the skills necessary for you to understand Science and Mathematics at Key Stages 3, 4, 5 and above.

I am a member of several professional bodies, including the Institute of Physics, the Association for Science Education and the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors.

The tuition I offer covers current curriculum and syllabuses, and, as an examiner for a large UK Examination Board, I can confidently tutor you in a way which will allow you to reach your maximum potential.

I also mentor two other tutors in the North East.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience in teaching Science and Mathematics on both a formal and informal basis to young people and adults alike. I have worked in four schools in County Durham, and also have provided informal Physics training within the local Institute of Physics branch and its affiliated organisations.

I have provided specialist private tuition to young people for 5 years.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very personalised - all the sessions which I provide are tailored to the needs of the individual student. I aim to establish a good rapport with all of my students, and encourage them to take a lead in their learning. I am also very easy to contact, and provide immediate advice to my students if necessary.

All tuition is flexible, and is subject to signed contract, terms and conditions apply.
