Information about Andrew

With almost ten years` experience as a private tutor and a degree from Oxford in biochemistry, I`ve helped many students enjoy learning and achieve their dream grades in maths and science. My past students have gone on to medicine at UCL, QMUL, Oxford, and Cambridge, and many other top university courses.

Tutoring online since 2013, I work very hard to get great results. I pace sessions carefully to make sure students are getting very detailed notes written down and enjoy learning about the big topics.

Willing to travel: 30 miles

Experience: I`ve helped students at all levels and believe in really getting to know what students need help with, then bringing great lesson plans and carefully chosen past paper questions to boost students` confidence and build a path to doing well in exams. My past tuition has covered all the major A-level courses for biology and chemistry and many GCSE science and maths courses. I`ve been giving tuition online by video conferencing since 2013. I have a love of history and design that carries into my work so I try to make my lesson plans vivid and colourful, packed with interesting examples, diagrams and pictures.

My students have gone on to courses including:

Medicine: Robinson College, Cambridge, Oxford, UCL, Cardiff, QMUL, Hull York Medical School, Birmingham
Veterinary Medicine: Bristol
Psychology: King`s College, London
Computer Science: City University
Maths/economics/finance: Reading, Durham, Warwick, York, Nottingham, McGill
Biosciences: Durham, Sheffield, Lancaster, Selwyn College, Cambridge, UCL, Imperial (2021 offer)

I`ve also helped students who wanted to do well in maths and science without it being their main priority who`ve gone on to courses like history at Exeter, English at Southampton and Birmingham and design at Central Saint Martins.

Besides professional tuition, since 2020 I`ve volunteered with The Access Project, an educational charity providing extra help to students.

My son really enjoys his lessons with Andrew and understands biology far better now than he did. His direct comment was "I`ve learnt more in an hour than I have in a year." I highly recommend.

His method of teaching was very helpful as he explained the topic and followed up by writing the notes down as well as checking my notes. I found it very thorough and I feel like it really helped my understanding and knowledge. Would definitely recommend using Andrew as a tutor if you want to get the top grades.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for this kind review and hope all your hard work pays off! Best of luck and please keep me posted-I’m really looking forward to hearing how everything went and what you go on to.

I only had a few lessons with Andrew running up to my Biology A level assessment in May. Andrew is the best tutor I’ve ever had, making lessons and learning very enjoyable and I would recommend him to anyone. I ended up with an A in my assessment which should hopefully predict my final grade for August. Thanks Andrew :)

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for this kind review! This is so great to hear and best of luck for the final results and your medicine offer! Will be keen to hear what happens and where you’re off to in the autumn.

Andrew is an absolutely fantastic teacher and my son has benefited so much from his A level chemistry lessons!! Initially, I was rather sceptical about how much my son would benefit from online lessons but he assures me that he is learning so much that in person lessons with Andrew couldn`t possibly be any more beneficial. My son is full of praise for Andrews teaching skills and knowledge and for how the lessons are focused on whatever the student specifically requires help in. We can`t recommend Andrew enough!!!

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for this kind review and so good to hear about his A* grade! It was so good to hear he feels he’s benefiting. Looking forward to resuming in the autumn.

Andrew has been a great help to my daughter in her preparation for her A-level assessments this year. He has been particularly good at providing supporting information and resources and also at being prepared ahead of the tutoring session on the area to be studied. I would really recommend Andrew.

Andrew is an awesome tutor. He makes sure to tailor the lessons to your learning style, explaining everything clearly and in detail. He also offers heaps of exam questions from past papers, I highly recommend, 10/10 tutor, very kind, responsible and excellent at passing on knowledge.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for this kind review, and for all your intelligent questions and all your hard work! Looking forward to resuming in the autumn.

Andrew has been a great support to my son and really advanced his understanding of General Sciences. He has been very organised and flexible in accommodating the tutor sessions at different times and has managed to build a really positive and strong rapport with my teenage son, which is a feat in itself :) I would really recommend Andrew as an effective tutor!

Andrew has been an excellent tutor. Andrew has prepared his lessons and ensured that my daughter is supported in particular areas as well as revising her exam technique. My daughter had a low grade 7 in Biology but with Andrew`s support her last test was a high grade 8. We have come back so she could achieve a grade 9 in Biology GCSE. Thank you

Read content from books I already had, rather than interacting and engaging in the lesson, which wasn’t a productive style for my learning.

Nice tutor, only had one lesson but my daughter found it very boring as she was asked to write everything down. I’ve got another tutor now who puts diagrams and pictures on zoom to help her absorb information easily but I do thank Andrew for his time.

Andrew is a fantastic innovative biology teacher, creates a lesson with examples of ongoing matters in science with reference to current papers.

My son is extremely happy with Andrew as his tutor. We decided to get a tutor a little bit late in the day, but Andrew is doing such a good job my son is very pleased with his progress so far in such a short time. Andrew is very responsive, very organised and communicates well. He plans his lessons carefully, and my son thinks that he explains things in a very clear way and is really able to help his understanding of some of the more difficult topics. He always listens to my son as to what topics he wants to cover first, and he has resources readily available to utilise. He is obviously highly knowledgeable, but more than that, he is keen to impart his knowledge to his students and really does try to do so in a way that they can digest. My son feels this is helping him a lot. We wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Andrew as a tutor, we are just sorry we didn`t find him sooner!

Andrew provides both A level biology and chemistry tutoring for my daughter. He prepares for each session on the subject they have agreed, sending relevant links and exam questions for her to review before and after the lesson. Andrew is very clear and patient and encourages her to ask questions. This is particularly useful at this time as she doesn’t have the opportunity to do so with her own teachers due to lock down. She has found the tutoring experience very valuable, increasing her confidence in the subjects which was the goal. Thank you.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for this kind review! Getting top marks in the class in both subjects…wow. Incredible, and completely deserved. Hope the UKCAT goes well.

Andrew is an extremely competent, patient, experienced and supportive tutor. He has a well structured approach that works best for our daughter and allows her to ask questions and work through A level Biology topics / questions / tests at her pace. Most importantly our daughters confidence has improved significantly. Highly recommend Andrew.

Andrew is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. He has been able to explain and simplify a lot of concepts making them easier to understand and study. He has made time to accommodate additional lessons. I strongly recommend him.

Great tutor, able to accommodate for specific areas of weakness across biology/chemistry & has a broad ranging question bank which helps to support exam focussed learning. As well as going into further depth to help with understanding.

Thank you so much!

First and foremost, Andrew is a very knowledgeable chemistry tutor. He is approachable and able to engage my son on a subject he had previously struggled with. However, most importantly, my son looks forward to his lessons with Andrew and believes he is finally making progress. Andrew is a professional and responsive tutor who is highly organised and enthusiastically supports his tutee. We only wish we’d met him sooner!

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much!
