Stephen - Bingham - Biology

Methodology

I am an experienced tutor, examiner and textbook author with a proven track record in helping students achieve their full potential.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Chemistry and Biology (A level and GCSE).

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BA (Oxon) in Biochemistry and a PhD in Peptide Chemistry

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40 per hour for one-to-one lessons. The first lesson is half price. I charge £30 each for groups of 2 and £25 each for groups of 3 or more.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home in Bingham. This is situated between Nottingham / West Bridgford (10 miles) and Grantham (Lincolnshire, 14 miles). Newark (12 miles), Southwell (11 miles) and Loughborough (Leicestershire, 21 miles) are all within 30 minutes' drive. I have too many students to make travel to students' home feasible. I live 2 minutes' walk from Toot Hill School, making it possible for College students to come for lessons during free periods.

- When are you available?

I work from home, so I am available for teaching weekdays in the daytime. Weekday evenings are busier, and I sometimes have availability on Saturday mornings. I live 2 minutes' walk from Toot Hill School, making it possible for College students to come for lessons during free periods.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

GCSE (year 10 and 11) and A level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE and IGCSE (AQA, Edexcel and OCR) and A / AS level (AQA, Edexcel and OCR).

- Do you have a personal message for students?

It is not always possible for a classroom teacher to explain things in a way that everyone understands. I am good at explaining difficult topics in an approachable way. I also believe that Chemistry and Biology are fascinating subjects and learning them should be fun and absorbing, so I make my lessons as relaxed and varied as possible. At the same time, exams require rigorous thinking and expression so I like to ensure that students not only understand the subject matter, but are able to express themselves in a way that will maximise their potential.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been a private tutor since 2013. In the past I was Chief Examiner in A level Biology. I currently set and mark A level Biology exams and am also an examiner for A level Chemistry and Cambridge Technicals Level 3. I am lead co-author on a level 3 textbook and author of GCSE Biology workbooks and A level Chemistry revision apps.

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

Yes.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a Chartered Chemist and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (CChem, FRSC).

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have several students who hope to study medicine or veterinary medicine, so need to be sure of getting A or A* grades. Others need help because they have missed parts of the course, either through illness or through having had a succession of supply teachers and staff changes. In the past I have had students who have struggled to make the transition from GCSE to A level and have needed a lot of help and support - not just with the subject matter, but also in developing self-confidence.
