Hi, I'm Sean and I am originally from Bristol. I completed a Master's Degree in Chemistry at the University of Oxford and since graduating have lived in London for 6 years. I remain passionate about Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics, all of which I teach. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of these subjects passing on my passion and enthusiasm for academia to as many students as possible. My other big passion is film and I have my own film production company. Through this company I produce dramatic British film, commercial and promotional videos for various companies and am currently working on a Science TV show!
. Over 5 years of tutoring experience in London.
. Most recent students' results: Summer GCSE and A-level exams - prepared various students for 22 exams in Maths and Science - 16A*s and 6As achieved in these exams.
. I have taught several students in Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics and English from the year 9 curriculum through to GCSE and A-level. I have knowledge and experience with all of the main UK exam boards and have also taught English and Mathematics to younger children, including preparation for the 7+ entrance exams.
. I have successfully prepared several students for 11+ and 13+ entrance exams for UK schools including Westminster and Harrow. I have prepared these students for the Mathematics, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning exams.
. I also have experience as a governor having stayed with families over longer periods on residential placements, most recently for a week in Suffolk during April 2016. During these stays I was teaching younger students but also organising and taking part in various activities with them, such as sports and trips.
. 3 months of tutoring in Bahrain during 2015. This involved tutoring several British students who were preparing to come back to study in the UK, including those coming back to sit 11+ and 13+ entrance exams.
. Camp leader for OCSEP during 2012. This involved organising and co-ordinating activities in Oxford and London for 60 Chinese students aged between 12 and 16.
My passion for tutoring has grown year after year since I started teaching in 2011. I believe that one-on-one tuition gives students the perfect opportunity to ask questions which would perhaps not be thoroughly answered in a class environment and I often find that through this process my students develop a real passion for subjects which they previously didn't necessarily enjoy.
Each student learns a different way and I use my time with each student to find what works best for them in order to allow them to reach their maximum potential. I usually find that confidence is key and allowing my students to learn new and effective ways of studying, helps them to do well in future studies, not only in gaining top grades in their upcoming exams.
