David - Kenilworth - Physical Education

Methodology

I am a qualified and very experienced teacher, with CRB and student references, offering "one to one" empathetic,enjoyable tuition designed around your needs so that you can confidently look forward to your examinations.

All Science and Science related subjects. I also offer Geography, Law (AQA, OCR and WJEC), Psychology and Sociology.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

B.Sc (Hons) Science Nottingham; Retired 10250 Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner, GTCE, QTS, NEBOSH National Cert in OHS. Various specialist qualifications relating to management studies.

- How much do you charge?

I normally only teach one student at a time, excepting twins. However a situation has arisen in which 2 students, who are close friends have asked me, with Parental support, to jointly teach them AS Chemistry.
All Personal Tuition sessions are of 75 mins duration.. not 60 mins!
KS3/4;GCSE : £25-00 per 75 min session;
AS/A2 : £30-00 per 75 min session.

- Where do you teach?

Kenilworth, Warwickshire. CV82NX.
I do not travel. All tuition sessions take place in my comfortable executive home. It is well equiped with appropriate teaching resources and has a cloakroom for student and Parent use.

- When are you available?

Subject to Consultancy committments:
Monday to Friday 08-00 to 19-30 hrs; Saturday, Sundays and Bank Holidays by appointment.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Normally 13 to 19 years excepting mature students wishing to updates their skills.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

AQA, EDEXCEL and OCR including Nuffield and OCR at GCSE and "AS/A2" - Levels.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Not Applicable.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I make students welcome, comfortable and relaxed so that they can devote all their energies to study. The emphasis is upon cultured informallity. I strive to develop their natural abilities and confidence... something which some day schools/colleges do not appear to do. I aim to make complex concepts clear and simple by using ordinary every day examples and with appropriate humour.Students work a lot better when they are not hungry... so I always offer light refreshments.
Students usually come to me for periods varying from 3 to 36 months depending on their requirements.

To reiterate, I aim to explain difficult concepts clearly, and to this end I have a large number of specialist tomes which in turn generally make concepts much clearer.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

A former Local Education Authority Advisor and Management Consultant. Over 44 years of Teaching (Part and Full time) in the Independent / International Schools, Maintained sectors and, providing Management advice to Industry, LEAs, IOSH. HSE, and School/Colleges per se. My Teaching experience is extremely wide (culturally and geographically) and includes work with the disabled, main stream maintained Schools and teaching Sixth form in the Maintained and International Grammar Schools. Students with dyslexia are very welcome. One such student came in the previous Academic year, on an estimated "U" for Geography and, after continuing to attend for 10 months, attained a grade "C" in the June "A2" Examination.

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

Yes: for work as a Supply Teacher. I also have references from students and their parents/Guardians.

- Where and with whom did you train?

University of Nottingham, University of Bangor, University of Aston, Coventry Technical College, and at various venues during in service training

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

GTCE, ATL. Formerly IOSH as a CMIOSH and Chair of the IOSH Education Specialist Group.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Students come from very diverse backgrounds and studying a wide range of subjects eg Art to Zoology ranging through the Sciences. Most are very well self disciplined and, simply need someone to explain difficult topics which through force of circumstances, the School/College may have merely outlined eg High resolution Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR).

I offer specialist special needs students, excluded students and those seeking to achieve higher grades by resitting their examinations.

Iwould like to thank you for all your help and support that you gave me in Science subjects at GCSE level.

Dear Mr Chitty,

I want to thank you so much for teaching me over the past 18 months. You have built upon both my ability and confidence as a student.

However, I dont think that you can take all the credit as Susie also helped me to finally write a PEDANTIC answer!!!

Love,

I could not recommend Mr Chitty enough! In the space of six months I turned an A2 Biology paper from a grade U to a very high B. With his help, we went through what felt like hundreds of past examination questions and, when i found a topic challenging, Mr Chitty found a way of explaining it without confusing me. Very grateful for all his help.

David Chitty tutored our son at GCSE Level for the three sciences. He achieved "A" for Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
We have no hesitation in recommending Dave for his tutoring and mentoring services. Our Son has very fond memories of the calm, friendly and focused atmosphere of Dave's lessons. Dave really enjoys his work and he and his Wife are always so welcoming and relaxed.

Mr Chitty is a fantastic Tutor who gave me confidence in my own ability in "A" - Level Biology, as well as providing me with an essential exam technique and thoroughly explaining areas of the course which I found challenging. He enabled me to change my grade "D" to a grade "A" in a matter of a few short months.
