Information about Jarvis

I am a graduate and post graduate of Birmingham University and the University of Brighton and have degrees in Physics with Astrophysics, Computer Science and Education. My education degree is a PGCE with a specialism in secondary science. I also work at the Observatory Science Centre where I run the planetarium, provide lecture courses and outreach programmes for schools across the South East of Britain. I also provide volunteer services for local schools to help with their literacy programmes.

Since my first degrees I have worked in research in the University of Birmingham, commercial computing, teaching and now at the Observatory Science Centre at Herstmonceux.

I believe in offering individual or small group tutoring where the tutoring can be tailored to the needs of the student. Tutoring is always structured to focus on the specific student needs and the needs of the curriculum they are following. The first session is offered for free and is to gauge the aims of the student.

Availability: I am available all days and weekends including evenings

After School

Willing to travel: 12 miles

Experience: I have provided literacy education in primary schools, outreach programmes visiting primary and secondary schools and outreach programmes for schools visiting the Observatory Science Centre. Since moving from university and commercial work into education I have taught at St Gregory`s Catholic Comprehensive in Tunbridge Wells and Uplands Community College in Wadhurst. I have taught all science discipline up to GCSE and Physics up to A level. I have also taught adult groups in specialist courses at the Observatory.

Very good. Very supportive of my son`s confidence issues and clear and patient. Quite wiling to extend a session when the need arose and even turned up when everyone else said we were too far away and too snowed in!

Led my son through a set of exercises and ended up with him doing an A level question without even realising that was what he was doing!

Sadly my experience here was below substandard. I spent lots of time arranging, double checking distance and availability only to e told on the day of the first class that after all he had no time and we lived too far away - super unprofessional and distressing for my son - no idea how his tutoring is as we never even got there!

Tutors Response :

You sent one text message and only answered your phone once when you were "too busy" to talk about your son`s tuition.
