I currently offer tutoring for physics up to A2 level plus maths up to GCSE level.
I have taught at a variety of comprehensive schools for 25 years and am currently lecturing in Physics at the Crosskeys campus of Coleg Gwent.
I have been a teacher of science (including A level physics) and maths for over 25 years.
I have successfully home tutored a large number of students in both GCSE maths and physics over many years.
2017's A level physics results at Crosskeys were fantastic, smashing the national comparators. For example, 42% of my students achieved A* or A which is 12% above the national figure. 90% of my students achieved A*-C which is nearly 20% above the national comparator!
In 2017 my A level tutees achieved 1 A*, 1 A and 2 B grades. At GCSE, every tutee apart from one achieved at least the C grade they needed.
I like to tutor by firstly going over the salient points about the current work, followed by attempting past paper and equivalent questions. However, I am easy going and happy to help in whatever ways are needed. I am here to help the student progress in whatever way he/she feels best.
I am offering my services at a reduced rate for the start of the school year. My normal rate will be £40 per hour but for new tutees who sign before the end of January 2018, my rate is reduced to £35 per hour. However, there is an extra £10 per hour fee if I visit you for lessons. If I can visit you on the way home from work without making much of a detour, this extra amount is reduced to £5 per hour.
