Personal Description:

I have 20 years experience of teaching only A-level Biology and I have all 5 star feedback. My tutees get great results and show outstanding improvements. Please read my reviews.

I am a current full time A-level Biology teacher

I am now only tutoring online in London as it is vastly more productive than sitting on the tube or being run over by lorries.

I teach A- level Biology full time in - a top rated sixth form college.

The department is grade 1 (Outstanding) as were my lessons in a recent OFSTED.

My classes have achieved top 1% of A-level Biology Sixth form college classes nationally for value added results.
Very many students have achieved full marks in exams and gone to Oxbridge or medical school.

Some of my students that I have tutored have gone from a D to a A and from a C to an A*. I enjoy tutoring as it is very rewarding to lead students to a thorough understanding of the theory that they couldn't grasp.

Tutoring Experience:

20 years of A-level Biology. I have in depth knowledge of the OCR, WJEC, Edexcel, AQA, Pre U specifications.

I have recently tutored students at Eton, St Swithuns, Cheltenham Ladies College, Barton Peveril, Portsmouth Grammar School, Godolphins, Chesham Grammar, Cardiff Sixth Form Centre, Collingham College, Duff Miller Tutorial College, The John Lyon School, New English School of Kuwait.

Tutoring Approach:

Online, I use an HD webcam and videoconferencing with superfast broadband.
I use a shared whiteboard, to which I upload notes/powerpoints/past papers to annotate and discuss with the tutee.

I share the notes and powerpoints with the students before the lesson. The lesson is recorded to be used in revision. I share the recording immediately after the lesson. Most of my tutees also join the complementary weekly revision webinar running most Sunday evening that covers a topic in a lecture format.

The most challenging exam questions to students are those which expect application of a concept to explain novel data. I spend a lot of time explaining the underlying theory and how to understand and approach the questions.

I throughly recommend the online tutoring route and offer a 50% discount on the first lesson.
