Stephen

Ferryhill Tutor

I am currently a research scientist, but have tutored students, both in my current position and privately, for the last 6 years. I have a PhD in Neuroscience, an Undergraduate degree in Pharmacology and a Research masters degree in Medical and Molecular Biosciences as well as A-levels in Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Geography. I have a car, live in Durham and work at York, so can travel to tutor within reason.

Tutoring Experience

I have tutored 12 students through GCSE exams, all achieving at least a C grade, with some achieving well above their predicted grades (2 gaining A's when predicted C grades). I currently lead seminars for 1st and 2nd year medical and bio science undergraduate students at York University. I also demonstrate practical sessions to these students and teach 11-16 year olds who will attend summer camps at the University.

Tutoring Approach

I'm not a miracle worker, if your child is predicted a C, I can't proclaim to get them a 9. However, I can make 100% sure they achieve that 5/6 grade and with constant help, improve them towards a 7-8 grade, and as with previous tutees, maybe more. My partner is a Primary School teacher, so I have access to the curriculum and teaching resources, in order to make learning more engaging and fun. I like to challenge people, to concentrate on areas in which people are unsure-there is no point learning something you already know!
