Information about Axel

I am a head of chemistry and currently teach in a Welsh medium school.
I love to teach and I am very patient with students.
I will work at a pace the student feels comfortable with and will not increase this pace until the student is happy to do so.

I believe that nobody should have to struggle with studying.
This is why I encourage any and all questions, however silly you may feel they are. I am not here to judge, only to teach.
I want my students to feel confident in their learning environment, and to understand you must ask whenever you feel unsure.
I believe this to be the downfall of many classroom environments, where students don`t feel they can ask questions at the risk of feeling embarrassed.

I believe the key to reaching those top grades is that a student must understand the work as opposed to memorising information and therefore work to asses understanding and build on this information in lessons to come.

I am also a firm believer in trying new teaching methods. If you feel that the reason you don`t understand the work is because you are being taught the same thing in the same way and no one is able to approach the topic from another perspective then I believe I can help.

Availability: Weekends, ideally Sunday. Will consider all offers.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have experienced exams through the WJEC exam board from GCSE maths and sciences through to A-Level maths and sciences.

I have studied pure chemistry for my degree and have a 1st class honours masters degree in chemistry. I am now a fully qualified and active head of chemistry at a welsh medium school.

Fluent in Welsh. Can teach chemistry in both english and welsh up to A-Level.
Can teach GCSE Mathematics in both English and Welsh.
Can teach GCSE Physics in both English and Welsh.
Can teach GCSE Biology in both English and Welsh.

Confident in tackling other exam bodies, my experience up to my current position in university has allowed me to cover many topics that will cover those of other exam bodies.

DBS Check: Yes

Working with Axel has been an absolute game changer!! He has been working with my son for A level chemistry and the difference in his confidence and how he approaches his work has completely taken him to a new level! We are so grateful to be working with Axel and can’t recommend him highly enough!!

We needed a Welsh speaking Chemistry Tutor and although Alex was very busy he fitted my son in. Alex has been very flexible adding in lessons to fit in with the demands of this year`s tests. My son has found his lessons with Alex extremely useful. Alex has been able to fill in the gaps in my son`s understanding and helped him answer exam questions more accurately. I would definitely recommend Alex and if my daughter decides to do Chemistry A level I know who to contact!

Excellent support and teaching enabling my daughter to reach her potential in A level Chemistry. He was able to provide online sessions which focussed on my daughter`s specific learning needs. I can thoroughly recommend Axel as a tutor.

My son needed additional help for A Level Chemistry and Axel immediately restored confidence and cleared the grey away providing concise clarity putting him firmly back on track after a rocky start in 6th form with poor tuition in school

An excellent tutor who helped my son gain confidence in his science subjects.

Very pleased with the progress my daughter has made with year 9 maths in just a few weeks. For someone who dislikes maths Axel has managed to motivate and build her confidence by breaking the questions down into manageable, bite size pieces she can understand rather than try to memorise. Axel is friendly, punctual and makes maths far more enjoyable...something 3 previous tutors have failed to do! Thank you so much
