« Clive is an unending source of astonishment. He is brimming with knowledge and expertise way beyond that of a typical secondary school teacher, no doubt due to his higher education background. His ability to tailor and package his knowledge and deliver effective lessons helped me enormously with my A2 chemistry. The fact that we are in a similar age bracket (ok I am 18, he was 25) also made the sessions very informal, but none the less beneficial. »

Clive - Cheetham Hill - Dissertation and thesis’s writing preparation

Methodology

I'm a young (26), early career, postdoctoral scientist with vast expertise in biophysics and biochemistry. I trained and work in a world leading university. I'm a young and charismatic teacher offering a rich learning experience.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I can deliver comprehensive teaching across the biology and chemistry courses at AS and A2 levels. I can offer substantial assistance with specific undergraduate and masters level modular courses if in the area of biophysics, biochemistry, (bio)physical chemistry and molecular biology.

I have native speaker knowledge of Spanish. Although the bulk of my educational background and teaching experience is in science, I am more than adept at supporting learners of Spanish at any level.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

PhD Biophysics & Structural biology - The University of Manchester (September 2010).
BSc (Hons) First class in Biochemistry - University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology {(UMIST) July 2007}.

A levels in Biology, chemistry and Spanish (AAA) - From a comprehensive school (August 2004).

- How much do you charge?

Hourly rate of £25.

- Where do you teach?

I have access to comfortable teaching facilities in the city centre, a short walk from Piccadilly train station. If preferred I am happy to visit yours, please drop me a line for discussion. When travelling, sessions would have to be for a minimum of 90 minutes and if beyond a 10 km radius of the city centre then for 2 hours. I charge for train travel if outside Greater Manchester or on the periphery of the county.

- When are you available?

My fellowship contracts me on a 50% FTE basis and I juggle a moderate load of students outside of this, but this load fluctuates seasonally. Please drop me an email for discussions and I am sure I can squeeze you into my schedule. I am happy to work very late in the evening too, until the last trains to accommodate students.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

GCSE, AS, A2, undergraduate and taught masters levels.

If you have specific coursework or dissertation requirements, please drop me a line for discussions with respect to how best I can assist you with specific pieces of project work.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

The bulk of my students that I have taught on an independent basis have tended to be 6th formers, requiring assistance with their AS and A2 biology and chemistry courses. I have taught some GCSE level students too. Naturally I have also worked closely with undergraduate and masters level students on specific assignments.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have had great success teaching online with one of my students, this turned out to be decidedly more flexible and beneficial than I had originally anticipated. I am therefore more than happy to deliver comprehensive teaching sessions online. This may be an appropriate option if you live a considerable distance away from Greater Manchester. I generate sophisticated notes and slides which I share onscreen with my student, as I concomitantly explain essential biological and/or chemical principles. I can work with msn and skype.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am young, energetic and extraordinarily enthusiastic about frontier science with an unparalleled background in interdisciplinary biophysical chemistry at doctoral level. If you want interesting, rigorous, highly motivating, but relaxed sessions, please drop me a line for discussion. As I said, I'm a young and charismatic teacher, offering a rich learning experience.

Best,

Clive

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I obtained a PhD in biophysics and structural biology, focusing on protein dynamics, and quantum dynamical fluctuations in protein systems using sophisticated spectroscopic techniques. I acquired this training from a world leading research group.

I acquired a first class undergraduate degree in biochemistry, whereby I covered the entire spectrum (from the atomic level to the population genetics level) of biological sciences in years 1 and 2. In my 3rd year I underwent significant specialisation and focus in (bio)physical chemistry - (protein folding, protein dynamics, structure determination, structural biology and enzymology). This interdisciplinary background covering both biological and physical sciences, enables me to confidently deliver comprehensive teaching in any area of biology and many overlapping areas of physical sciences.

In terms of formal teaching I have held a postdoctoral fellowship at a leading Russel Group university since completion of my PhD. I am contracted on a 50% pro rata basis and my subsidiary teaching duties involve preparation, delivery and examination of final year modules in biophysics and biochemistry to final year life sciences and chemistry undergraduate students.

On an independent basis I have been instructing, primarily 6th formers but some undergraduates, with their A levels and specific undergraduate subjects respectively.

I also examine/moderate for a leading UK exam board since 2008.

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

No

- Where and with whom did you train?

The University of Manchester, 2004 - 2010. (Undergraduate degree & PhD).

A run of the mill comprehensive school: 1997 - 2004. (GCSEs & A levels).

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

BBSRC - Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council. The leading quango for non-clinical biological science research in the UK.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

A mix of college 6th form and final year undergraduate students. My 6th form students have received extraordinarily beneficial teaching assistance from me, enabling them to secure their first choice university places.

My university students are routinely either biochemists or chemists in their final year that have required, and heavily benefited from, dedicated assistance with specific coursework projects, dissertations and essays.

Clive is an unending source of astonishment. He is brimming with knowledge and expertise way beyond that of a typical secondary school teacher, no doubt due to his higher education background. His ability to tailor and package his knowledge and deliver effective lessons helped me enormously with my A2 chemistry. The fact that we are in a similar age bracket (ok I am 18, he was 25) also made the sessions very informal, but none the less beneficial.

Clive has been able to develop a working and long lasting rapport with my son and has had a tremendously positive impact on his attainment at AS biology. We live in Doncaster, too far for Clive to travel to from Manchester, but after a few face to face sessions, we switchted to online sessions. These turned out to be remarkably flexible and work well with my son. Clive generates very comprehensive teaching material and slides, which he shares with my son online as he is discussing biological principles.

I applied to study biological science at a good university and had to secure good grades. My modular results in chemistry were very poor, as a result I sought the assistance of Clive. Clive really instilled a renewed sense of confidence and capability in me with respect to grappling with chemical principles that my school teachers failed to get across to me. Clive really is fundamentally different than your regular school teacher. No wonder he teaches in a world leading university.

Jahan

I applied to study medicine and had to get at least AAA. Chemistry and mathematics were fine, but the descriptive nature of biology was really confusing and I just had no idea how to make progress. Clive helped to deconstruct biological concepts for me, ensured I had the right understanding and spent considerable time with me helping me to tailor this knowledge to the requirements of the exam question. My subsequent attainment in biology was radically improved.

J
Jacob

I was doing a taught masters programme in molecular biology. My dissertation project was really confounding for me. I had to write a substantial report on gene expression mechanisms. The input I received from Clive was absolutely invaluable in helping me to get a distinction award. With Clive you are effectively getting Professorial expertise at a bargain price.
