Information about Tom

Why did the inventor of the television reroute the entire output of the Clydesdale Electric Company into a dustbin full of coaldust? And what does it have to do with chemistry? This is the kind of folklore I weave into my lessons to help inspire students. But I`m not just a story teller. I`m an experienced science teacher and A-level chemistry examiner. I have been teaching science to students aged 11 to 18 since 2010. I have consistently helped motivate students to score one or two grades above their target in GCSEs and A-levels. I can teach biology, chemistry and physics up to GCSE and chemistry and biochemistry at A-level. Not only is my subject knowledge excellent, so is my knowledge of the ways students misunderstand chemistry, and the ways to overcome those problems. I also know exactly what examiners are looking for, because I am one. During our sessions, I will test your understanding of concepts to see if there are any misconceptions in your thinking. I will then help you to overcome any misconceptions and then test your understanding with past paper questions. If you`re worried about doing well in science exams, I can help you improve.

Availability: Weekday evenings and weekends by arrangement

I keep being pestered by the website for feedback which I wouldn’t normally give until we had had some time with the tutor or knew if it had impacted my son’s grades. However I can report that Tom is punctual, organised and my son is both enjoying the sessions and finding them helpful so far

Tom has been working with my daughter for a few months now. She is finding him easy to understand & interesting! Her confidence in Science has increased. She is also enjoying Science at school more which I believe is due to increased understanding. Tom is friendly & reliable. I would recommend Tom without hesitation.

Tom has been helping my son with A Level Chemistry since a week before half term. The subject is challenging and my son was really struggling and starting to lose confidence in class. Tom has been absolutely brilliant on many levels. He`s frank and honest about the effort that is required and expects the student to commit but he makes the learning interesting and accessible. Unlike a lot of teachers, he doesn`t talk "at" the student but rather he engages their interest and insists that they explain their knowledge back to him. Of course this is the benefit of one to one learning, that would be difficult to achieve with a class. I wish we had found him a bit sooner since the exams are only weeks away but I`m entirely confident that my son will have increased his final grade as a result of Tom`s help and encouragement. My son says "one lesson with Tom is the equivalent of about 10 lessons at school" which is a decent testimony on it`s own.

Tom is an excellent tutor that has helped me build confidence in Chemistry. He is very good at understanding what you find difficult and explaining it in a way that you do understand. I would definitely recommend him for anyone that is looking for a tutor.
