Mark taught my daughter Biology and Chemistry from GCSE to A Level. I am very happy with how he explained the concepts using the online learning tool, making sure that the student understands what is being taught and supporting the teaching with diagrams and context. Mark’s teaching is very much tailored towards the needs of the individual child and he constantly makes sure that they are on the right track, achieving what they are capable of. Furthermore, the use of exam questions throughout the lessons and as homework has also proved extremely beneficial as it has enabled my daughter to understand how best to answer questions. Because this happened throughout the year, the learning was constant so that nearer the time of the exams, she was confident in exam technique.
Overall, Mark has been an excellent teacher, constantly reinforcing concepts and preparing students for the final exam from the beginning, hence giving them tools to achieve the best they can.
Mark tutored me for my A-Level resits and I got the grades I wanted.
I’ve known Mark for over 8 years and I have found him to be an excellent science tutor. I would recommend him for his professional attitude and the great quality of teaching that he provides. He provides depth and ensures that his students have the necessary understanding that they need, which help them through major exams such as GCSE and A Levels. He has a great bank of resources and tools to support children of all abilities.
