Adrian - Llantwit Major - School science

Methodology

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.

Experience

- 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).

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Association for Science Education

Just wanted to give you the good news - Isher did well for herself in her GCSE's. Her head teacher was very pleased for her to stay on for A levels. Thank you for all the support you have given her over the past year

Many thanks for all your help, ensuring he made it to his first choice university - there's no way he would have done this if he'd 'gone it alone'.
