Stephen

I am a full-time Science tutor and have a First class degree in Pharmacology from Kings College London and a PhD from the University of Oxford. My general curiosity in Biology and nature has always helped motivate me in my studies and I hope that through tutoring I can inspire and transfer my enthusiasm for science to my students.

Due to the nature of my educational background, I have an excellent understanding of the Science subjects and I am adept in explaining complex concepts and ideas in a more understandable and manageable way.

I am a friendly, patient and enthusiastic science tutor who has over 6 years of experience in tutoring, mentoring and teaching science to those from the ages of 11 to PhD level.

Tutoring Experience

I provide home and ONLINE tuition. Since I am a full-time Science tutor, I can provide Home schooling during the day and afternoon. I have been teaching science at GCSE, iGCSE, A level and university level for over 6 years and have worked with a variety of pupils with various abilities, learning styles, strengths and weaknesses.

My current and past tutees include students attending prestigious private schools (Alleyn’s, Bedales, Bromley High, Cheltenham Ladies' College, City of London Freemens, Dulwich College, Eltham College, Francis Holland Sloane Square, Hurstpierpoint College, JAGS, Latymer's, St. Paul's Girls, Roedean, Sherborne Boys, Sherborne Girls, Trinity and Whitgift) and grammar schools (Chesham Grammar, Henrietta Barnett, St. Olaves, Wallington and Wilson).

My method of teaching greatly helps a student understand their subject and gives them the confidence needed to excel and succeed in their studies. The tuition sessions will be catered to the needs of the pupil, focusing on any weakness. I ensure that tuition sessions are as individual, fun and interesting as possible.

I hаve extensive experience in mentоring аnd tutоring KS3, GCSE, iGCSE, A level, BSc аnd Medicаl undergrаduаte students аs well аs PhD students frоm elite universities including Oxfоrd University, Imperiаl Cоllege аnd UCL.

I also have extensive experience with university students of all academic levels and abilities as well as have a good working knowledge and experience of university marking and assessment systems.

I have taught many individuals intensively for their GCSE and A-levels in the run up to exams.

I have a proven track record of ensuring students excel to their full potential and all my students have achieved a 100% pass rate at GCSE, iGCSE, A-level, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

I hаve а current аnd up tо dаte (DBS/ CRB).

Tutoring Approach

I provide a personalised tuition programme either ONLINE or in the tutee's home. Since I am a full-time Science tutor, I can provide Home schooling/ education during the day and afternoon. My tutoring style is very flexible and varies based upon the student's needs. These needs are usually pinpointed within the first meeting and I tailor all sessions to the individual needs and requirements. I apply a variety of different teaching techniques and styles that I have found to be effective in order to make studying enjoyable, interesting as well as beneficial, helping students to reach their full potential.

I make structured lesson plans tailored to student's needs and will set regular tasks to ensure full understanding of topics under discussion. After each lesson I provide feedback to parents on their child's progress

I have an excellent knowledge and experience of the current curriculum of all major exam boards (AQA, Edexcel and OCR) and I have relevant educational and exam materials.

I also offer guidance to undergraduate assignments specifically helping and advising on laboratory-based and library-based dissertations; evaluating scientific data as well as writing reports / essays.
