Information about Michael

Hello, and thanks for looking at my profile. I am now open for bookings for the academic year starting in September 2024.

I`m a fully qualified and experienced teacher of science whose specialism is A-Level Biology. I`m now in my 10th year working as a tutor. I have numerous references from satisfied parents and students; please check my feedback.

I studied Agriculture and Biochemistry at Aberystwyth University before qualifying as a teacher. I have worked in managerial positions in agriculture and large scale horticulture in the UK and in agricultural education and development in the tropics. I have more than 15 years experience teaching Science and Biology in UK private and state secondary schools. I have taught students of all abilities and at levels ranging from KS3 to Oxbridge candidates. Gradings of my lessons following observations, including those by OFSTED inspectors, were consistently rated outstanding. “A very gentle but extremely skilled practitioner” OFSTED inspector March 2013.

I`m experienced and fully resourced for the current AQA and OCR A, A-level Biology specifications. I teach via Zoom. For each topic I employ worksheets developed by myself, also collections of past questions specific to the exam board with which the student is studying. These are sent as email attachments the day before each lesson. Lessons are spent going through worksheets and/or past questions together. My aim is to ensure student knowledge is secure and that understanding is complete and then, by studying past questions and mark schemes, to refine answering technique
.
I feel that the varied nature of my career, encompassing periods of practical farming in both developed temperate, and developing tropical situations, has benefitted me tremendously as a science and biology teacher. Drawing on practical examples of science in action has helped me to make the subject more relevant to the real world and has proved invaluable in stimulating the interest of my students.

I very much look forward to hearing from students intent on maximising their potential and am happy to provide any further information they, or their parents, may require

We have been thoroughly impressed with Michael. He is a very thorough and passionate tutor and knows the specification inside out. He is always well prepared for each lesson and offers realistic feedback. My son was struggling with Biology but once tutoring commenced with Michael, my son`s approach to biology changed completely. We would definitely recommend Michael.

We asked Michael to provide weekly tutor support for AQA A Level Biology for my daughter around 10 months ago and he has proved exceptional in every sense: his professionalism and approach together with the quality of the worksheets he provides for both in and outside of lessons. Michael has a genuine enthusiasm for teaching Biology and the ability to pass this enthusiasm onto his student. Michael has without exception been timely, yet flexible and his desire to go above and beyond for my daughter has been evident on a number of occasions. Importantly, my daughter likes him. I cannot recommend Michael highly enough.
