« Nick was our son Jonny's tutor for 3 months from March – June 2010, helping him to study and practice for his dual science award GCSE. Nick was an instant success with Jonny, quickly gaining rapport and the two have worked closely together 2-3 times a week up to and through his exams. We would highly recommend Nick to any prospective science students. We're very glad to have found him and Jonny has asked Nick to help with his AS Biology studies next year. »

Nick - Kenilworth - Physics

Methodology

Life doesn't owe you a big deal - it's what you're prepared to make of it.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I am by heart and training a Biologist, so that's what I stick with at advanced level. I'm also a good all round scientist too, and have several years' teaching experience in other science subjects such as Chemistry and Physics.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a First Class BSc in Applied Biology, a PhD in microbiology and a PGCE in secondary science education.

- How much do you charge?

For KS2/KS3 I charge £30 per full hour. For GCSE I charge £30 per hour and for AS/A2 level I charge £35 per full hour. I am willing to travel and for appointments within a 10 mile radius of Kenilworth I make a charge for this of £5 per tuition session. I am willing to travel further but this is subject to negotiation of the terms.

I am happy to do group tutorials for a much reduced fee per student.

- Where do you teach?

Some of my tutorials are run in my own home and some take place in students' homes. I also tutor via the internet using Skype - the students I tutor are in Europe. I am willing to travel to areas such as Leamington, Warwick, Rugby, Dorridge, Solihull, pretty much all areas of Coventry too. If you think you are too far away from Kenilworth, please make contact with me and we should be able to agree terms that both of us are happy with.

- When are you available?

I am a full time tutor and am willing to fit around people and their commitments at school/work. Days, evenings, weekends are all fine by me, as are school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am happy to teach from KS2 up to degree level. One of my current students is a mature student who has to improve her science GCSE in order to be allowed onto a teacher training course at University.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am happy to tutor via email or Skype or a mixture of both. When Skyping both the tutee and I make effective use of an online, interactive whiteboard, meaning I can see how they're thinking as they formulate their answers. It also allows me to quickly highlight problems to the student. Students tend to like using computers, so this technique is generally very motivating for them.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Don't forget to take time out from studies to relax and enjoy your school life! Studying hard is honourable and enjoyable, but you should avoid becoming a stress bomb - that won't help you at all!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have seven years' experience of teaching the whole ability range in the state education sector, working with SEN students daily. For just under half of that time I was a very successful Head of Biology, so I have a good understanding of what students need to do to make more progress and achieve to the best of their ability.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have A-level and GCSE students and I am helping with preparation for re-sit exams and first atttempts also. Many of my students don't just need help with subject knowledge, they need encouragement to boost their confidence, particularly if they don't feel they're getting this from school at the moment. I am currently helping pupils with ASD and those in local authority care with their studies.

Nick tutored my daughter for A level biology for 4 months. During this time he has proved to be an excellent and knowledgable tutor. He is always well prepared for sessions and eager to stretch and challenge his student. Nick provided excellent support and preparations for exams. He is keen to build the student's confidence and transfer his love of the subject. He is dedicated to his work, easy to get on with and most certainly a talented teacher of biology.

I contacted Nick through the tutor pages with 2 days to go until my final A-level exam, as my teacher was unable to see me. Nick replied almost immediately and, after e-mailing him some work, he helped me through Skype. It was incredibly useful and a definite lifesaver just before the exam! I would highly recommend him, and my sister will be using him if she needs any help. He explained everything in a way that was very easy to understand and took into account my aims and ability when teaching me.
