Teacher of A level Biology and Chemistry 2013 - Present at a large Sixth Form College
I can highly recommend Andy; he tutored my daughter in A level biology for several months, was very well organised, and presented the topics clearly. He was excellent at highlighting the main points to be remembered, and used a variety of methods of presentation and ways of assessing learning. Andy is friendly yet professional at all times. Excellent tutor.
Andy has taught my daughter A2 Chemistry, he is very punctual with a thorough knowledge of Chemistry, exam techniques, and explains the concepts well. He also gave my daughter a mock interview for Medicine, which was very helpful. I will surely recommend Andy for tutoring.
