Highly experienced tutor offering tailor made solutions to suit individual student's needs.

Methodology

My style of coaching is pretty much hands-on ensuring that basic concepts are fully understood before doing plenty of practice using past papers and appropriate mark schemes. This is of course done taking into account of the students needs and focusing on the areas they may find challenging. In essence, my coaching is tailor made to suit the indivual's needs and thereby enhancing their potentials to achieve the best grades posible.

Hope you and your family are well and you are all enjoying India! I tried to call you yesterday and my mum reminded me that you must still be in India.

I achieved A AA! I got the A overall in Chemistry that I wanted. I am now accepted into St George`s University of London and will be started from 23rd September.

A HUGE thank you for all your help over the past year in guiding me with my Chemistry A Level and I hope to see you on your return from India.
Many thanks.

John has now had six chemistry sessions with our son. He is very knowledgeable about the requirements of the chemistry syllabus, and how best to focus our sons revision efforts, as well as helping his understanding of some difficult topics. We are very pleased with with his ongoing support.

Since working with John, my son`s grades have improved tremendously - even to a Grade A in one of his exams this January. John tailors his tutorials exactly to the needs of the student, taking time to ensure that each area is fully understood. My son`s teachers noticed a difference in my son`s classwork, commenting that his confidence and understanding had improved.

John has been helping my son with his A levels in chemistry and since then my son`s confidence has grown and we have better hopes of my son achieving an A or B grade in chemistry. John works well with my son when teaching and he takes time to explain difficult tasks . i am pleased with John`s teaching skills so far and i would gladly recommend him to any one looking for a chemistry.

John has been great as he has been helping me out with my chemistry. His knowledge of syllabuse is extremely detailed, which plays very well when linking knowledge between each of the modules, perfect for the exam questions posed on A level Chemistry. Very professional and approachable, John insists you make use of his guidance and knowledge whenever need be and that he is always available to assist you in your studies. I feel extremely confident that I can achieve the grade I need.

We would just like to give you some feed back re Mr John Newman of
Letchworth Hertfordshire. We found Mr Newman to be both charming and reliable. He is a very able gentleman and can explain any part of the chemistry A2 syllabus. My daughter found that subjects she had struggled with at school made complete
sense and after only a few sessions felt confident enough to be working out her own solutions.
Many thanks to Mr Newman for all his help - we would certainly recommend his services.

John Newman has been my daughter's Chemistry tutor for the last 6 months. We have found him to be very knowledgeable and helped her understand concepts better. He also is very good in explaining difficult topics and also navigating through revision papers and explaining what needs to be done to improve grades, this has reflected in her grades and confidence . He is very patient and kind which sets him apart. He is an outstanding teacher and I have no hesitation recommending him.
