I've been teaching and tutoring since the early 90s and have a wealth of experience. I currently work as an examiner and teach private clients including those who are home-schooled.
Some evening and daytime slots are available but will depend on location. Online tuition is also available.
I have 26 years' teaching experience and periods acting as head of department. I've taught in mixed, boys', girls', selective, SEN and high schools. I have also taught intervention classes, adults, residential classes and most recently I've enjoyed working with high ability Autistic Spectrum and CAMHS students.
I have taught many students with sensitive safeguarding referrals and CAHMS referrals.
My experience comprises 25 years maths teaching, 12 years physics and chemistry (not biology) teaching.
I have also undergone recent post graduate re-training in physics and chemistry teaching.
Each student is very different and the ways they learn can vary. Students usually respond positively to my "lighter" non-confrontational style. We shouldn't be forcing students to have private lessons and this doesn't guarantee results. For this to work, students needs to "buy into" wanting to be helped. I like to choose and get to know my students individually regardless of ability and I have enough experience to draw on alternative approaches to topics. I like to be honest with students and parents about expectations.
I prefer to meet with students and their families before tuition commences to discuss realistic requirements so that we can all work together.
NB. Genuine enquiries only please, and prices are as quoted. No agencies. Please note that I will have to charge for any last minute cancellations, especially if I have driven.
