I invite students to ask for assistance if it is needed. Your personal development and growth is very important also as the latter can affect your performance. This I can probably help you with also if you wish it.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach the following subjects:
Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Biology (AS) at 'A'- level.
Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Biology and English at GCSE.
Similar for Pre GCSE.
English as a foreign language.
I can help with writing essays and Study Organization.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
My qualifications are : M.Sc. In Chemical Engineering, Diploma in Chemical Engineering, B.Sc. in Chemistry, PGCE, CELTA
- How much do you charge?
'A'-Levels - £35/hour
GCSE's - £33/hour
Pre-GCSE - £31/hour
For the more distant venues there is some negotiation over travel charge (petrol etc.)
- Where do you teach?
I teach both at home and at the residence of the student/pupil.
I teach in the Swansea, Wales area within about a 20 mile radius.
- When are you available?
I am available during the week and at weekends, the latter with some restriction. This includes school holidays. At the moment I teach during the day when required and in the evenings. The latter is the more usual slot.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach from 8 years of age with no upper limit.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for University degrees, Foundation courses, 'A'-Levels, GCSE's.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I have a holistic approach which also includes the personal development of the student. I encourage and develop the student's understanding rather than memorizing.
Sadly in many schools the students are encouraged to learn by rote. When students cannot understand the work at school, they are often frightened into memorizing - this can be highly stressful and often does not work very well. With the appropriate assistance this situation can often be remedied and the student can then able to think it out for themselves and never look back.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught in Schools, Technical Colleges and at University.
I have been tutoring for about 30 years.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an Enhanced DBS.
- Where and with whom did you train?
My tutoring skills are mainly my own.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I belong to the Institution of Chemical Engineers with A. I Ch. E. membership.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
Generally my students succeed in their exams and understanding but it cannot be guaranteed as it depends on the student also.
