Austin - Rainworth - Maths

Methodology

I am an experienced teacher and tutor with over 7 years experience, as well as an expert examiner for the Edexcel and OCR exam boards. I am an excellent communicator and excel in helping students to make rapid progress and achieve higher grades.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Biology.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a 2.1 MChem Chemistry degree, Postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) specialising in Science & Maths, Qualified teacher status (QTS) and a PhD in Organic Chemistry.

- How much do you charge?

All tutorials are £30 per hour up to GCSE tuition, £35 per hour for A level Chemistry tuition and £50 per hour for undergraduate Organic Chemistry tuition.

- Where do you teach?

I teach online and at home, in students' homes and other public places (such as libraries). I routinely tutor students living in Southwell, Rainworth, Blidworth, Clipstone, Mansfield, Nottingham, Warsop and Ashfield.

- When are you available?

Weekdays from 3pm to 9pm and the weekend from 10am-1pm.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Any students of secondary school age, including Key Stage 3, GCSE and A level. I have also tutored adults for various work-related courses as well as some undergraduate students.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Key Stage 3, GCSE, IGCSE (international GCSE), A Level in Chemistry and University level Organic Chemistry.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Tutorials online are conducted using Skype and Scribblar (an interactive white board used by both myself and my student). I use various resources including animations that I have carefully chosen to aid students' understanding and recall.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

All my students have commented that I quickly put them at ease and identify the stumbling blocks they have in Maths or Science. I then build their knowledge and correct misconceptions. I believe that students need to get a clear picture of what they are learning in their head, and use structured questions to lead students to the answers rather than simply telling them, so that they are much more likely to remember them.

I include problem solving, exam technique and confidence building exercises in all tutorials, and so students make very rapid progress. I firmly believe that all students can achieve and drive students to be their best, all in a friendly and supportive approach that makes learning enjoyable.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am a fully qualified teacher with over 7 years teaching and tutoring experience. I am also a senior examiner for the Edexcel and OCR exam boards, which allows me to coach students in exam technique and how to make sure they don't lose marks.

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

Yes I have an up-to-date DBS which is available on request.

- Where and with whom did you train?

My teacher training and PhD are both from the University of Nottingham. My doctoral research was concerned with producing molecules which could be used as probes to understand how certain enzymes work in cells and has application for cancer treatment and asthma.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Austin is very reliable, and very professional. In just a few weeks we can already see the improvement in understanding our son has of chemistry. He now understands the subject better and enjoys it more. I would fully recommend Austin. (A Level Chemistry)
