About the lesson

**A comprehensive online tuition service can also be provided in addition to face-to-face tuition – please see full details below**

Friendly, approachable and experienced Oxford educated teacher offering GCSE/A level tuition in Science and Mathematics. At present, I am teaching Chemistry and GCSE Science at Highgate School, North London.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I offer tuition in Chemistry up to AS/A2 level, Maths and Science up to GCSE. Tuition is also available for the BMAT and GAMSAT entrance exams required for certain medical schools in the UK, so i can assist with the preparation for these difficult, niche tests. I have helped numerous students of school age as well as mature students go on to medical school over the past decade. Additionally, I offer specialist coaching and mock interview practice for those applying to medical school and Oxbridge, including the preparation of a Personal Statement for the UCAS form (this being one of my designated roles at Highgate).

Lastly, tuition is provided for those sitting numeracy and literacy exams required for entrance to the Armed Forces or those studying for degrees that incorporate Chemistry modules e.g. business with Chemistry, foundation courses etc.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Masters in Chemistry (MChem, Hons) from Oxford University (Worcester College 2001 - 2005).
QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) postgraduate programme, Buckingham University.

- How much do you charge?

Rates: GCSE and A level: £60 per hour.

Undergraduate, BMAT and GAMSAT: £60 per hour.

Please see my website for further details.

- Where do you teach?

I cover Central London and Greater London, but do work further afield - please get in touch. What is more, I work with a number of international students around the world e.g. China and Hong Kong, via online tuition.

Tuition usually takes place at the client's home, although I am flexible in regard to the time and location of the lessons.

Full online tuition services are provided utilising whatever platform you wish – whether it be Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams. Online lessons are streamed in full HD using professional audio, visual and lighting equipment (not a laptop webcam and inbuilt microphone), ensuring your experience is as close as possible to in-person tuition. Furthermore, I utilise a traditional whiteboard, so you can take notes during the lesson and we can discuss problems in real-time. Lastly, practice questions, mark schemes and notes can be sent over instantly during the lesson.

I have an extensive list of references from previously satisfied clients for your perusal - please get in touch and see my personal website for more information.

- When are you available?

Daytime, evenings and weekends for face-to-face tuition, depending on my school timetable. Online tuition can take place at the tutee's convenience.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Usually between 12 - 18 years old, although I do teach a number of mature learners studying part time for engineering and science degrees, or applying to medical school.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, A level, BMAT and GAMSAT.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

With over a decade's worth of tuition experience, extensive knowledge of all the examination boards and a teaching position at an elite, independent co-educational school, I believe I am well placed to help you with your tuition needs. My aim is to get the very best out of tutees using a variety of teaching methods with a strong emphasis on exam technique. I have helped tutees of all ages and abilities on a one-to-one basis as well as within small groups. I am flexible and adaptable in my approach to teaching, and endeavour to create a learning environment in which the tutee can thrive. Questions from tutees are encouraged as much as possible; I believe this is absolutely essential if a solid understanding of a topic is to be achieved. Subjects are taught according to exact syllabus requirements. Knowledge is tested through the setting of regular homework and past paper questions. Marking and feedback to tutees is prompt.
