I am a Chemistry graduate from Bristol University and currently work in the Pharmaceutical Industry. I am based in Paignton but am willing to travel around south Devon in order to tutor. I am 31, married and have three children. I have keen interests in rowing and other sports and I can build rapport with anyone.
I have tutored individuals for a number of years, for Maths, Chemistry and Biology. My pupils have ranged from A level students to primary school children aiming to pass entrance level exams for grammar schools. After university I traveled and taught English to teachers at a school in South east India (Chennai) for a year and created a great friendship with many of them which I still have today. My job now also involves the teaching and training of staff members on complex pharmaceutical manufacturing procedures and I'm required to explain those procedures so that they are understandable and repeatable.
I am also a qualified sports coach for rowing at a level 2 standard and have taught a large number of people how to row. I have been a coach for over 6 years and have taught all abilities from natural rowers to individuals who took longer to master the technique.
My approach to tutoring is a friendly and reassuring manner. I use tricks and methods that break down difficult to understand subjects into easier chunks that build the understanding in the pupil until the whole picture becomes clear. The subjects that I tutor are ideal for learning specific methods such as mnemonics and memory techniques as well as easy to remember processes to work through the data.
I create a great rapport with children of all ages and during the time tutoring them we have a laugh and develop an enjoyment of the subject as well as learning the content.
