Didn`t get the AS, A-Level, or GCSE results you were hoping for? Need to resit some exams next year? Don`t worry, I can help you pull your grades up. Most of the time the problem lies with difficulty performing under exam conditions. This is not something taught by teachers at schools, who have to focus solely on the content of the syllabus. I offer an approach to teaching with equal focus on scientific content and exam technique tailored to each individual student`s needs.
I`m a skilled communicator with a passion for teaching and many years of experience tutoring a number of different subjects including chemistry, biology, maths (statistics for biosciences).
As a scientist currently working in the research field I feel I have an advantage over some school science teachers because I am more up to date with current practice and can give relevant examples to students. I have recently completed a PhD in Chemistry and have a number of published works on the topic of graphene electrochemistry.
Availability: I am available to tutor on Saturday afternoons as well as weekday evenings. Lessons can be either in the student`s home or other mutually agreed location.
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: I have previous experience of working with young people, am friendly and outgoing, a skilled communicator and a passion for science.

A very good tutor
Nik has been a great tutor. He has been so patient and very good at answering any questions that I have had, explaining concepts clearly so that I have been able to understand them. I would recommend him to anyone as he has helped to improve my grades immensely.
Fantastic, lovely guy and truly knowledgeable in his field. My son found it easy to relate to Nik as he is so engaging. As a result Tyler now actually enjoys his study sessions!
Great tutor. Only had him for a short time but already feeling the benefit. Am much more confident for my GCSEs.
Great tutor - very helpful
In the short time we`ve had Nick he`s done an amazing job in helping our son become confident in chemistry from failing it, to excelling in his class. Furthermore he`s integrated seamlessly in our way of life, helping our son out in more than just chemistry as well becoming a positive role model for him overall.
Great tutor who knows his stufff. Always punctual and makes sure that you know when lessons are. But the big positive is that he makes sure that you understand things and also really tries to up your grades.
So far so fantastic!
Nik has been working with my 15 year old son and helping him with his GCSE year. Hes only been coming for a few weeks but he has fit in well with us here. Nik has a great personality and is incredibly patient.
5* from pupil and parent.
Very good tutor and I recommend him.
Very happy with Nik`s tutoring
