« Andy Gudgeon is the best teacher I have ever met. He was first recommended to me by a family friend when I needed support with my A-Level Chemistry studies. He has also tutored both of my younger siblings and many of my friends in a variety of subjects. Andy has a unique ability to turn the most difficult topics into easy to understand snippets of information. Without Andy Gudgeon’s tutelage I would not be where I am today-a PhD chemist running a research lab for a World leading paints and coatings company. I would highly recommend Andy Gudgeon as a tutor. »

Biology Lessons to GCSE or A Level in Ribbleton, Preston. 30 years experience, one-to-one

Methodology

After each lesson, I give notes and a worksheet homework. One-to-one is great, but try to find a partner if you can, to make it more fun, and share costs and travel. My students always enjoy their lessons, and move up the grades quickly.

Background

I have a BSc in Biology & Chemistry, and a PhD in Biochemistry. After 30 years experience as Head of Science in a top independent school, I slowly moved into private tuition, sending 300 students to Medical School, and 28 to Oxford & Cambridge. But I am still happy to do any science subjects at GCSE or lower.

Andy's CV

Curriculum Vitae / Resume for Dr. Julian Andrew Gudgeon

Greenlands, Ribbleton, Preston PR2 6BB


Married to Leonila, 2 children Catherine, 17 & Christopher, 15.
1957-64: Manchester Grammar School, O Levels, then 5 A Levels.
1964-68: Keele University, Double Honours B.Sc. Class II.i Chemistry & Biology
1968-71: Liverpool University Ph.D. in Biochemistry, on Fungal Biosynthesis
1971-1995: Head of Science at Queen Mary School Lytham, a leading UK Independent School of 800 pupils.
1995 to 2018 Much private teaching, all subjects & levels, and travel.
In June 2007, I became Professor of Organic Chemistry at Ateneo University, 2nd year degree chemistry. March 2008, I was voted best professor in the entire university. 2008 until now: I taught poor children in Manila at 3 different projects & at my home, many subjects, Maths, English, all sciences, French & German.
Subjects: Main strength: Degree, Advanced or IB Level Chemistry, where most of my students always achieved A or B grades & many S Level distinctions, and entries to Oxford & Cambridge for Medicine or Natural Sciences.
Also able to teach Maths, Biology to age 18, Physics, French & German to age 17
I love to teach Maths to every student, to strengthen their mind for all subjects.
I use my computers a great deal, to produce worksheets and homework sheets, using mostly WORD and some powerful Chemistry Programs; also Excel & Powerpoint. My lessons are non-stop teaching, practical and demonstration, never dictating notes, or asking pupils to copy things out. Nobody ever leaves a lesson without notes and written homework. I never say “Just read your notes”.
Extracurricular Activities: Organised most of the school’s voluntary work, debates and expeditions. Spent every summer holiday and many other school vacations taking groups of students all over Europe doing voluntary work or cycle-camping.
Research: During my Ph.D. at Liverpool, I resolved the biosynthetic origins of the fungal metabolite sterigmatocystin by Aspergillus versicolor.
Although very successful in my research, I have focused my career on effective methods of teaching, especially to poor children and advanced organic chemistry.
I also love to teach dyslexic children or those with Aspergers Syndrome.

Andy Gudgeon is the best teacher I have ever met.

He was first recommended to me by a family friend when I needed support with my A-Level Chemistry studies. He has also tutored both of my younger siblings and many of my friends in a variety of subjects. Andy has a unique ability to turn the most difficult topics into easy to understand snippets of information.

Without Andy Gudgeon’s tutelage I would not be where I am today-a PhD chemist running a research lab for a World leading paints and coatings company.

I would highly recommend Andy Gudgeon as a tutor.

Andy tutored me in Chemistry for both GCSE and A Level. His tuition turned a previously tricky subject into one which I found very easy - resulting in Chemistry A grades and a place at Medical School. I thoroughly recommend him as a tutor - he is incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject and is fantastic at providing individualised support and coaching. He inspired me to believe in myself and aim high and I’m very grateful to him for that.
