Real achievement is linked to understanding, not just recall. I will help you understand, which makes revision so much easier!
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Science and Biology.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a PhD. in zoology and a postgraduate certificate in education.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £25 per hour for tutoring at Key Stages 2 and 3 and £30 per hour for GCSE and AS/A2 level. Discounts can be negotiated fror group lessons. Travel expenses will be charged for distances greater than 15 miles (each way). Online rates vary according to the service provided.
- Where do you teach?
I usually teach at the student's home, although I can teach at my own home if required. I work in Cardiff, Barry, Llantwit Major, Cowbridge, Bridgend and surrounding villages. My home is in Llantwit Major, which lies between Cardiff and Bridgend.
- When are you available?
I am available most evenings and weekends. I can also work during school holidays. I occasionally have to travel to other parts of the UK, but students are always given at least one week's notice if a session has to be re-arranged.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach mainly Key Stage 3, GCSE and AS/A2 pupils, but can also tutor Key Stage 2 if required.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can tutor via Skype or via email. Email tutoring is usually intermittent rather than in a continuous session and rates will be negotiated according to the service required by the student.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Learning is a skill and I always try to advise on how to learn as well as what to learn. My tutoring technique will be adapted to your own particular learning preferences.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have 27 years teaching experience in secondary schools, and 4 years in a local authority education advisory service. I have been assistant chief examiner and a chief coursework moderator in GCSE Science for one of the UK examining boards and I am currently an A level examiner. I work as an education consultant and I train teachers in various aspects of science, from Key Stage 2 to university level. I have tutored students at Key Stage 3, GCSE,AS and A2 levels.I am a contributory author to many of the science and biology revision guides published by CGP and I am currently working on my sixth and seventh science textbooks (GCSE and A level).

Jack feels that the improvement and increased understanding he has achieved with these results are as a direct result of your assistance, and is very grateful. We are pleased with these results, and are very thankful to you
Thanks again for tutoring Alex. He felt the exams went well: a far cry from how he felt a few weeks previously!
Many thanks for all your help with Pete's Biology revision. He really enjoyed the sessions he did with you.
