I have many years of experience as a full-time personal tutor. I build the confidence, motivation, and enthusiasm essential for success in exams and beyond.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths for Common Entrance 11+, 13+, GCSE, IGCSE, A Level, IB and Pre-U.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I was a biochemical researcher at the National Institute for Medical Research in London for 10 years where I received my PhD in 2006. I studied the mechanisms behind various types of cancer and I retain a passion for keeping up to date with the leading edge of scientific discovery -- a drive that I bring to each of my students.
- How much do you charge?
£80 per hour dependent upon the hours needed and travel.
- Where do you teach?
I provide tuition to students in and around Central London, as well as in and around my home town of Dunstable.
I also offer Skype tuition to those who live outside of these regions.
- When are you available?
Please contact me for my availability. My schedule is generally full, but spaces do open up occasionally.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages including those leading up to Common Entrance, 11+ and 13+, GCSE, IGCSE, A Level and IB.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I teach Common Entrance, 11+ and 13+, GCSE, A Level, IB and Pre-U.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
For face-to-face communication, I employ a range of video conferencing platforms to suit the student's needs including Skype, Google Hangouts, Facebook and more. However, the more essential tool I use is an online whiteboard where I and the student can draw and add a large range of pictures, animations and videos to create a rich learning experience.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I started tutoring out of a passion for teaching science and maths to bright, motivated students. I have since spent several years as a full-time personal tutor helping students build the confidence they need for success in exams and beyond. My core ethos is to motivate and create a sense of independence that will support each and every one of my students well into the future.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Frank will plan your first lesson with care.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have over 7 years' experience as a full time tutor totalling more than 4,000 hours across all of the major exam boards.
I worked for 10 years as a biochemical researcher at the National Institute for Medical Research in London.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a current DBS certificate and I'm more than happy to make this available upon request.

Hi Frank, A massive thank you for your work with Jodie. It has most certainly paid off. Her AS resist went from U to A !!! With 103 UMS marks out of 120. Her highest achieving exam of them all! Thanks again. She wouldn't have managed it without you.
Hi Frank, Thank you so much for all your wonderful tutoring trickery. I achieved AAB, which was more than I needed to get to my first choice university. I'd like to send my sincerest thank you to you for being an incredible tutor. Not only did you help me to nail down content and exam technique, but you helped me to discover a genuine interest for human biology. I hope you never stop sharing your passion for biology, that I found so infectious, with other students.
Just a note to say that Ella achieved A/A* in her science GCSEs
yesterday and was thrilled! Alex also achieved an A in his Biology A level and is off to Durham University in October. So a final thank you for all your help with both Alex and Ella. It really made a huge difference to both of them and we very much appreciate all the work you did with them - it definitely gave them both renewed confidence in the subject.
