Offering maths and physics tuition at IB (international baccalaureate) level online and face to face

Methodology

I am an experienced classroom teacher working as a full-time tutor. Whether you are seeking short term tuition in the run up to exams or more long term tuition, I'll be glad to help.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach A-level mathematics (pure, statistics and mechanics), GCSE, IGCSE and International Baccalaureate Mathematics (HL and SL). I also teach physics to the same level. I am able to teach at university level too in many areas in mathematics and physics.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I hold a BSc in physics from Warwick University. I achieved an upper second degree. I also have a PhD in experimental physics research and a PGCE in science.

- How much do you charge?

I offer reduced rates for group tuition. This is a very economical way to receive tuition. Find a friend and come to receive tuition in a group of two or more.

For GCSE tuition (single rate) I charge £30 per hour
For A-level I charge £35 per hour.
For teaching two students in a group the same subject I charge £40 per hour (£20 each) for A-level
For teaching two students in a group the same subject I charge £35 per hour (£17.50 each) for GCSE

- Where do you teach?

Normally, I teach only at my own home which is just off the High Street in Brentwood.

- When are you available?

I am available 9am to 9pm six days a week.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach 11-19 year olds and adult learners.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for GCSEs, A-levels and the IB diploma in mathematics and physics. I also prepare for entrance exams.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use a Staedtler digital pen which displays what I write in real time on my screen. This is shared through Skype. The student needs no extra technology to view what I write on their screen. Screen sharing is free with Skype.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I want to build a good relationship with my tutees and thus help them build confidence. Have you thought about Skype tuition? It is cheaper and really no different from face-to-face tuition.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am an experienced teacher of mathematics and physics and have taught in a wide range of international schools in the UK, Europe and Southern Africa. I have been tutoring regularly now for about two years. I am now a full-time tutor.

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

Yes, I obtained this in May 2013. I am happy to show you this.

- Where and with whom did you train?

My academic degrees (PhD and BSc in physics) are from Warwick University. I studied my PGCE at Sussex University.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I tutored an A-level student recently at Brentwood School. he lacked confidence but had the ability. I was recently told that he had achieved A grades in C1 and C2 which I had been tutoring him in. I have also tutored a young man who is studying for an engineering degree and needed help with some of his units.

I must say that I am very pleased with the outcome of your work with my son. And I am very glad to hear that he has been very hard working.
I am confident that Niccolo's experience with you will help him to re-assess his capabilities and to re-evaluate the importance of resilience in working.
