A-level/AS/IB, GAMSAT Chemistry
GCSE, KS3 Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics & Maths
Price and Range:
£40 per hour, all levels
Qualifications: BSc(Hons), AKC, PGCE. I have experience of covering all exam boards and have successfully tutored for over 20 years. I am also a member of the ASE.
I was Head of Science and Head of Chemistry, in a local school where I taught up to 'A' level. I was the author of a "BBC Help Yourself GCSE" revision guide and a contributor to the Nuffield KS3 Project.
The advantage of personal tuition is that I can concentrate on aspects of the subject that are required. One of the most useful activities is to work through exam questions in my presence. This enables me to offer further explanation about the subject, in the context of exam questions, rather than just cold lecturing or note taking. After a while it is hoped that students can work through some exam questions in their own time, using tutorials to ask me for help on only those with which they have had difficulty. The more work they can do on their own, the better, especially at A level. However, at GCSE, even pupils who have difficulty working on their own, benefit greatly from working through papers in my tutorials. I am patient, and accustomed to teaching students of all abilities, including some with special needs.
Although this approach is very exam centred, most students find it interesting, fun and enjoyable, especially as they begin to understand the subject more clearly and work out the correct answers for themselves. I always try to relate the content to everyday life.
My most current interests include learning music (e.g. ukulele) and amateur radio, for which I hold a full operator's licence; I act as a mentor to candidates for the Radio Society of Great Britain exams up to advanced level.
If the young person is under 18, I expect a parent or responsible adult to be present in the home during every tutorial.
