Information about Danny

I am a final year Student Doctor at the University of Cambridge, with a 2nd Class, Division I degree in Biological and Biomedical Sciences. At A level I studied Double Maths, Biology and Chemistry, as well as EPQ at Saint Olave`s Grammar School, achieving A*s in each subject. As a tutor I have worked privately for 8 years, and I have also volunteered my tutoring services most recently at a struggling local school, and for zero gravity, an organisation specialising in widening access to elite universities. I have extensive experience in tutoring sciences and maths, as well as coaching students in their university applications, BMAT and interviews for medical school.

I was appointed as the Captain of School at Saint Olave`s for the 2015/6 school year. At GCSE level I have achieved 12A*s in Maths, Religious Studies, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English Language, English Literature, Design & Technology, Spanish, History, Geography and the Higher Project Qualification. As well as an A in the Free standing Unit for mathematics. For AS levels I studied Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and History, achieving an average of 96% across all 5 and 99% across the top three. This also included full marks in 8/12 of the summer exams that I undertook, I chose these subjects with the purpose of studying medicine. I received offers to study medicine from the universities of Cambridge, Exeter and Imperial College commencing October 2016.

In my A levels I achieved 5 A* grades in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Having taken the 11+, the Saint Olave`s entrance exam, numerous tests at secondary school as well as my GCSEs, A levels and 4 years of Cambridge medical exams, I have become aware of what examiners desire and also many topics that can seem daunting when first approaching them. I also enjoy helping people to achieve their full potential, and feel more confident with their studies.

As a tutor, I will first ask the student what areas of a topic they struggle in, so that an initial target can be set. I would also provide out of session work that will be aimed at either advancing the student`s understanding of a topic or in aiding myself to gauge the student`s ability at an upcoming topic.

I am patient and willing to alter my teaching to best suit each individual. I look forward to to offering my support.

Willing to travel: 2 miles

Experience: Within school I have tutored individuals at various subjects, including Maths and Sciences. One in particular whose grades rose from an average of a C in Biology to achieve an A* in the summer exams at the end of the course.
I now have over 7 years of private tutoring experience, having tutored students between 10 and 18 years of age.

I contacted Danny after reading so many positive reviews for him. He is tutoring my 14 year old daughter for Biology (but happy to help out when she throws in a question on Chemistry or Maths!). My daughter says he explains things very well and is very happy. Danny is also proactive in letting me know his thoughts on her progress, which is great. I would highly recommend him.

Danny has been an excellent tutor for my daughter who required help with her Cambridge medicine interview. His thorough understanding of the interview style at Cambridge has meant that the questions practiced during the mock interviews were similar to those asked in her actual interviews. His professional attitude and expert advice has ensured that my daughter had the confidence to do well in her interviews, not only for Cambridge but also the other medical schools she applied to. Thus with his support my daughter successfully received an offer to study medicine at Cambridge.

Danny has been great! We’re happy we found him. I speak for my daughter my daughter and I. She’s doing her A Levels and was running behind. Danny’s lessons gave her the boost she needed to catch up and feel more confident again.

Danny is a fantastic tutor. He has been tutoring my daughter online for A level chemistry and she is gaining a much better understanding of topics she was struggling with. Her latest class test is already up one grade. Danny explains complicated topics clearly and concisely and comes completely prepared for each lesson. I would highly recommend Danny and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.

We have found Danny so efficient, informative and pleasant to deal with. We are so pleased to find a tutor who has great experience, whilst having a fresh insight and relevant academic knowledge still being in the academic setting. Very pleased.

Danny is tutoring my twins for GCSE. He has been brilliant, reliable and able to tailor the lessons to their differing needs and personalities. They have both grown in confidence in the subjects he has covered and shown a marked improvement in grades. I would highly recommend him. I chose Danny primarily for his age (19), and was wise to do so as he is still very close to the exam system and what is required to succeed in a school environment. My twins feel very comfortable sharing their exam concerns with him.
