Hi there, my name is Jon Todd and I am a holder of an undergraduate degree in Petroleum Geology from the University of Aberdeen. I also hold a postgraduate degree in Micropalaeontology (small fossils!) from the University of Birmingham. I have experience in teaching/tutoring all science subjects at KS3, GCSE and A-level. My mentoring style lends to the creation of a comfortable and fun environment in which to learn, as I believe it leads to the best results. Through my 5 years spent in university study, I have refined a multitude of learning and revision techniques guaranteed to help with student knowledge retention. Any questions please feel free to ask!
How would you describe your teaching style?
My teaching style puts the intiative onto the student, in order to maximise their potential and help them reach their targets through an interactive style of mentorship. My courses involve constant evaluation and assessment in order to identify weak zones early, and subsequently hones in on those problem areas in order to secure a knowledge base which can be built on over a number of sessions.
What qualifications do you have?
11 GCSE's, six A's and 5 B's A-Levels: Geology, Geography, Physics, Computing BSc Geology & Petroleum Geology - University of Aberdeen MSc Micropalaeontology - University of Birmingham
Tell us about your experience...
I hold experience mentoring at an undergraduate university level and below. I am familiar with the common exam boards (AQA, Edexcel, WJEC, etc.) and their structure. I teach both GCSE and A-level students.
What locations do you tutor in?
I tutor in and around the West Yorkshire area. I am based in Halifax and am willing to drive up to 45 minutes for appointments. Any uncertainty with this, please feel free to message me.
What is your personal message to students?
Prospective students should know that learning is something everyone struggles with! I myself struggled when completing my A-levels, but managed to turn things around with a bit of hard work. Learning isn't something to be afraid of, it can be conquered just like any other problem!
