Computer Science & programming tutor (A-Level, GCSE, degree) - online or in-person

Methodology

I grew up programming early computers such as the ZX Spectrum. Thirty years on, I have 13 years experience as a programmer in the videogame industry, and have worked on games that have sold millions.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

GCSE, A-Level and degree-level Computer Science / Computing. Contact me regarding other courses.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

When I was 18 I dropped out of university for personal reasons (I had been getting on fine with the course itself up until that point). However, I went on to gain the skills and knowledge that I would have learned at university, both through my job in the games industry and through personal research. My highest academic qualification is a BTEC in Computer Studies, for which I received a Distinction grade. I also have a Level 3 Award in Education and Training.

- How much do you charge?

A standard tutoring session costs between £28.50 - £33 for 45 minutes, depending on level. There is a discount of £2 per session if you book and pay for 4 or more sessions in advance, and a discount of £3 per session if you book off-peak times (weekday daytimes, and during the summer holidays).

- Where do you teach?

Tuition is available both locally (Newmarket and Cambridge area) and nationally (via Skype or Google Hangouts, using screen sharing).

- When are you available?

Please contact me to discuss availability.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I primarily teach GCSE and A-Level students, if you fall outside these categories please contact me to discuss.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online tutoring takes place over Skype or Google Hangouts, using screen sharing. The typical structure for my lessons is to do 45 minutes with a 15 minute break in the middle – this break is helpful to me due to a health condition, but it actually works well for the student too as I can ask them to try a task during the break and then check their work in the second half of the session.

For A-level and GCSE students, I produce a comprehensive spreadsheet to keep track of their progress - listing each part of the course syllabus, including my own notes on the topics and links to relevant resources. I also maintain a number of YouTube playlists of videos relevant to the courses, and a list of errors in some of the official textbooks.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I started tutoring in early 2015 and have tutored 25 students. In the 2016 exams, "K" got an A in his International GCSE - my estimation was that he had previously been on course for a C or a D. "A" got a C in his GCSE - he said that he felt he would have failed if it wasn't for my help. "M" and "A" got A* in their GCSEs.

I have experience in the following programming languages: C/C++, C#, Python, Lua, Java, JavaScript, Ruby, Perl, assembly language, HTML/CSS and training languages such as BASIC, Pascal, LOGO, Scratch and MIT App Inventor.

I worked as a programmer in the videogame industry for 13 years (leaving only due to a health condition), and worked on the following games:

Dog's Life (2003) - PlayStation 2
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 (2004) - PC
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Soaked! (2005) - PC
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Wild! (2005) - PC
Thrillville (2006) - PS2, Xbox, PSP
Thrillville: Off the Rails (2007) - PS2, XBox 360, Wii, PC
LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias (2009) - Wii
Kinectimals (2010) - XBox 360
Kinect Disneyland Adventures (2011) - XBox 360
Elite Dangerous (2014) - PC

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

Yes.

Andrew is an excellent tutor. I have made huge progress since starting work with Andrew last year. It seems like a different life! When we started, I was teaching Latin and French in Croydon. Now thanks to Andrew's help, I am now working as a Front-End Web Developer in Brighton at a well-known web development company. I am absolutely thrilled with the work we have done which started with bash commands and the terminal, then developing ruby and Object Oriented Design, JavaScript, CSS and problem solving. I would certainly recommend Andrew as an excellent tutor who enables outstanding progress and success for his students.

Dante learned a lot from Andrew about Computer Science. He felt that Andrew was very patient and supportive and guided him through the various A-level topics for this subject. He furthermore provided exercises for Dante to complete during the lesson and discussed their outcome which was really beneficial.
