I have been teaching for 18 years and tutoring for 16 years. I am an examiner and a consultant specialising in exam revision classes at schools. I have been invited into schools to specifically focus on high achieving students aiming to get an A*. As I am examiner I have an in-depth knowledge of the specifcation content for QCA, AQA, OCR and Edexcel. My A level and GCSE students this year (Aug 2017) all achieved either on or above their target grades. With a large number of A and A* grade for both my tutees and my students at school. Many of my students have gained places at top universities to study a range of degrees including medicine, dentistry and biomedical sciences. I tutor students from a range of schools including QE boys, Latimer, Bedford Modern, Sharnbrook, Parmiters, St Marthas, St James and Henrietta Barnet.

I am tutoring a young man in both geography and biology, his confidence has improved massively since our lessons began and his grades are improving as a result. I have spent a lot of time going through exam papers with him which has highlighted areas that he needed help with as well increasing his familiarity with the exam questions. (He got an A and a B)

I tutor 2 sisters who are now in year 10 and 13, I also tutored their sisters all the way through GCSE and A level, they are both at University now.
