Information about Cleo
I am a qualified and successful Science teacher at a local high school. I also mentor, coach and tutor Science students to help them meet their target grades, pass exams or simply to help them understand whatever they might have failed to understand in the classroom. I provide relaxed as well as a stimulating and challenging lessons, tailor-made to the needs of each student.
I use school progress reports as well as my own assessment tools and activities to identify the student`s area of need. I then use short and varied multi-sensory learning activities to develop the identified weaknesses to the required standard. I always aim to create a calm and engaging atmosphere, conducive to learning. Most of my tutees were interested in exam success and one of the key activities I did with them was to guide them in learning how to answer exam questions in order to get top marks. It is amazing how many marks are lost through failure to answer the question!

Feedback For Cleo (5)
My daughter recently started tuition for A Level Chemistry. After just a few lessons she is feeling more confident and Cleo is helping her to understand and to enjoy the subject much better! I would definitely recommend him for private tuition.
Cleo helped me so much, even with one session, i struggled with a few topics in chemistry and by the end I was very confident with the topics. Definitely would recommend to anyone. I will also call on cleo if i need anymore help with chemsitry.
Cleo was very helpful and knowledgeable about the subject he taught. He helped immensely with A level revision.
My grandaughter was greatly helped by Mr Cleo She said had learnt more from him in 5 lessons than all year at school He is a very pleasant teacher and would recommend him
Cleo began tutoring our son in January 2014 in Physics, Chemistry and Biology following his GCSE mocks and we were very impressed. We liked that fact that he is not only a full time secondary school teacher, but also an AQA examiner so he knows exactly what is required to gain the best possible results.
His approach is very organised, focused and honest, and his manner is relaxed and very friendly, so he gets the best out of his students. He was always generous with his time and happy to give us a `de-brief` after each tutoring session.
Our intention was to retain Cleo through to Chemistry A Level, but our son decided to switch to Geography instead so it was not to be, but we wouldn`t hesitate to recommend him to anyone else. We will miss him!
