A good proportion of my Chemistry and Physics A Level students do very well in their exams and I cover all the major syllabuses, OCR, AQA, Edexcel and the Salters Approach. In maths I have experience in Edexcel and MEI boards. I also teach accountancy up to degree level and have helped undergraduate students in business studies and finance.

I teach a pupil who has ADHD and another who Asperger's Syndrome and they are both great to teach, enjoying the lessons and improving. I am also teaching a number of second years maths, physics and chemistry students who want to do medicine and a wide variety of younger science and maths students. One of my pupils is doing a master degree in business studies and accountancy and helping him though his studies is very interesting.
As a further bit of background the recent June 2013 Maths C3 Edexcel paper was very difficult but after speaking to an examiner the marks are likely to moderated. The January 2013 chemistry Edexcel paper was pretty tough and would have challenged some undergraduates! so do not despair help is at hand.
I know the syllabus on all boards very well and so after the initial assessment we agree a way forward which is normally a mixture of going thorough key areas of weakness and then applying knowledge to past papers with plenty of exam practice.
Perfect! It was a pleasure meeting Mark. He is patient, prepared and punctual. He will ensure you meet your goals.
Perfect! I met Mark for a 2 hours lesson and it literally saved my day! Mark was clear efficient and straight to the point.
