Information about Ian
I have been a science teacher for 10 years working in a large comprehensive school in Cardiff where I have taught GCSE Chemistry, GCSE Biology, A level Chemistry, and A level Biology. I have also worked as a private tutor, tutoring Chemistry and Biology at a successful tutoring agency in Cardiff. I am familiar with WJEC, AQA, Edexcel, and OCR examination boards and have a wealth of tutoring experience.
I specialise in helping students to achieve the highest possible grades in their examinations and to improve their confidence. I do this by teaching key aspects of the GCSE, AS, and A2 level specification and completion of past examination questions. This develops the students ability to recognise the language and command words commonly used by examiners and enables students to maximise the number of marks scored for each type of examination question. Furthermore students learn to identify and avoid common mistakes that are made when answering examination questions.
Overall this approach allows students to be confident that during the examination the style and language of questions will be familiar to them so that they can answer each question effectively.
Typical lesson structure:
â¢ Teach a section of the relevant examination
â¢ Analyse and answer past examination questions for the
section of the specification studied.
â¢ Discuss answers and identify where loss of marks
could have been avoided

Feedback For Ian (4)
Excellent tuition from Ian. Helped my child get up from an E to a C in A level Biology. Thorough but relaxed and made things that were not understood in class easy to understand. Worthwhile investment to get the grade.
Although Rhys has only had a few lessons, he already benefitting from Ian`s experience and enthusiasm for the subject.
Great , expert tuition. Very pleased.
My daughter has only had one session so far with Ian but she was very happy with his knowledge and how he explained the topics that she wanted to go through. She is hopeful that Ian will help her secure the grade that she wants in Chemistry.
