Dr Frank Ivins - Inspiring and Experienced Biology Tutor in Central London and Online.

Methodology

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.

I teach Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths for Common Entrance 11+, 13+, GCSE, IGCSE, A Level, IB and Pre-U.  I cover all exam boards.

I charge £90 - £100 per hour dependent upon the hours needed and travel.

I provide tuition to students in and around Central London.
I also offer online tuition to those who live outside of these regions.

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.

Ambassador

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Frank will plan your first lesson with care.

Experience

I have over 10 years of experience as a full time tutor totalling more than 6,000 hours across all of the major exam boards.

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.

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.

I am delighted with my AS result I got a B in Chemistry and this has moved with your help from a D at Christmas. Thank you for all the support and help and I will be highly recommending you to anyone in the future.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help! I cannot believe I managed to go from a U to an A in my retake and from a D to a B overall. I'm so happy and I could not have done it without your help, especially with exam technique!

Clarice got her GCSE results yesterday. She got A in maths, biology and physics and B in chemistry. I think she did fab. She is also absolutely delighted as UCS have offered her a place in sixth form. Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for all the efforts that you put in and see you next term for intensive maths!!!!
