- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online, I use an HD Webcam, a graphics tablet and video conferencing with a super-fast broadband connection. I use an excellent web-conferencing program, where both parties can see and annotate notes and past papers and PowerPoints, it is an extremely effective tutoring tool.

Online tutorials are recorded and shared with the tutee, so they can be re-viewed and used for revision. Prior to the tutorial, I give the students notes and PowerPoints to go through so faster progress can be made during the session.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

A-level Biology is an extremely challenging subject, there is a huge body of difficult content to learn and understand. The new style questions test understanding and application more than factual recall, many students find this a big change from what they were comfortable with at GCSE. My goal is to get students to understand why and how a biological process is occuring, rather than trying to rote learn the steps.

Do get in touch, I enjoy tutoring and I think my students do as well. I will make every effort to make the sessions enjoyable and productive.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

20 years of teaching A-level Biology in Sixth Form Colleges, in-depth knowledge of AQA, OCR A, Eduqas Pre-U, Edexcel specifications.

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

Yes - I am currently a full time A level Biology teacher in a Sixth Form College.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Students that I have tutored have gone from a D at AS to a A at A-level and from a C to an A*. I enjoy tutoring as it is very rewarding to help students to a thorough understanding of the theory that they couldn't grasp. I have recently tutored students studying at Eton, Cheltenham Ladies College, St Swithuns, Barton Peveril, Portsmouth Grammar School, Godolphins, Chesham Grammar, Cardiff Sixth Form Centre, Collingham College, Duff Miller Tutorial College, The John Lyon School, New English School of Kuwait, King Edwards Southampton.

An excellent tutor!

Tom is an excellent tutor. There is no fuss - just getting on with the work. He's very proactive and works in a really productive way. An hour of tutoring covers a large amount of work and he is very thorough and easy to understand in his explanations. We would recommend him to anyone.
