Hello. I am a highly experienced teacher-research with QTS Status (July 2008) and private tutor. Graded 'Outstanding' by OfSTED on November 2009 inspection and all internal inspections since (last recorded evaluation November 2015). Awarded the Oxford Education Society's MLT Award in 2015 for his research in diagrams in learning science and has a double distinction for his MSc Learning and Teaching at Oxford University as a TDA Scholar. Experience in comprehensive teaching after transitioning to private sector education in September 2012. I am available weekday evenings and weekends - I can come to you, or tutor you online!
How would you describe your teaching style?
I have a warm, friendly and engaging style with experience of regularly delivering a full complement of A* grades (now Lv.9 at GCSE level) at the end of the academic year. Most of my A level students go on to study at American universities, Oxford, Cambridge and a variety of other excellent red-brick universities. As an experienced tutor visiting students for 1-to-1 lessons in the comfort of their own homes, you are always most welcome to have your parents/carers to observe and participate in sessions. They can be most fun and even entertaining at times. You may also have your own group lessons for revision classes if you have the need towards exam season for groups of your friends and peers. These have been very successful in the past.

Tell us about your experience...
A fully qualified and experienced teacher in all areas of science education and research, working in the most academically high achieving schools in the country. I have been the head of lower school sciences at one of the top 10 independent secondary schools in the country and private tutor for over 14 years. I have an exceptional academic career record in all areas. My qualifications and experience are in teaching KS3, GCSE (and now IGCSE), International Baccalaureate, BTEC and AS/A-level Sciences (11-18 years) at both state and independent secondary schools since 2007/8. I specialise in teaching and tutoring Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry and Physics as academic school subjects, where students often wish to go on to university to study natural sciences, social and political sciences, vet science, medicine, law or the more esoteric subjects in the humanities.
What locations do you tutor in?
I tutor in Berkshire and South Oxfordshire, between Reading and Caversham Bridge up to Henley and across towards Newbury
