Information about John

Oxford Uni, First Class Honours and Doctorate, 20 years of highly successful teaching at A level, and an experienced examiner. My results as a teacher and as a tutor are, by any standards, absolutely exceptional. Quite a few pupils of mine have managed the rare feat of scoring 100% in exam papers and I have helped over 300 pupils to get into Oxford, Cambridge, or Medical School. Since 2010 all of my online A level tutees have gained the A or A* grade and I`m currently on a 5 year streak of all of my regular students achieving the coveted A* grade. I also have an amazing record with medical school entry. My regular students invariably gain BMAT and UCAT scores that put them well into the top 1% of applicants and they usually receive 3 or 4 offers from medical schools.

Experience: After achieving First Class Honours, a Masters, and then a Doctorate, I worked as a biochemist at Oxford University. I then trained as a chartered accountant and worked as a tax specialist for Deloitte. Financially secure, I was then able to indulge my passion for teaching and tutoring. I am now a very experienced and highly successful A level teacher and examiner and I am particularly well set up for online tuition with a large dedicated office, fast PCs, superfast fibre broadband connection, bendy HD webcam and an absolute wealth of digital resources. I think that the main reason my tutees enjoy my teaching so much and are so successful is that everything is bespoke to their needs. Being an experienced examiner and teacher really helps but key also is a good sense of humour and real flexibility. We all learn differently and have different needs and I really care about doing the absolute best that I can for each student.

We are very pleased with John. He has been helping our son with his A-levels for a few months now on a weekly basis, and is handing down a lot of information on exam technique as well as systematically going through the material with him. Our son is looking to do A-level exams somewhere this year - it is a strange year, but having John helps him to stay focused.

A great tutor who has an amazing breadth of subjects. He tutored my son and I think we will be back for more with my daughter next year - if he has space. I highly recommend Dr John.

Tutors Response :

Dear Kate,
Space is indeed the issue! I try very hard to fit everyone in as I love helping students to quickly improve and achieve their ambitions but there are so only so many hours in the day. I really hope that I will be able to help your daughter as well.
Very best wishes, John

Dr John is a fantastic tutor, he knows what he is doing, helped my son in short period to understand critical topics he was struggling with and we are happy to continue with him.

Tutors Response :

Dear Huda,
Thank you for the kind feedback. I am thoroughly enjoying helping Yousif. He is such a polite and upbeat young man. I take great pride in his progress and I always look forward to our weekly lesson.

John is very efficient and punctual. He sets very high standards and has high expectations. He maintains momentum throughout the lesson. Only had a few lessons so far, but find him to be highly professional so far.

Tutors Response :

I aim to rapidly move Will through the grades and I am really enjoying this challenge. There is already a marked change of approach and some real momentum being built. A very positive spiral. Best wishes, John

John started supporting my daughter Charlotte in her final year of A Levels she had lost her confidence following the C-19 Pandemic and lockdown. The uncertainty surrounding her final exams and university caused her anxiety. John is calm and supportive, he also brings an element of fun into the tutorial which makes the learning experience more valuable. John quickly assessed Charlottes learning style and needs and with her built a plan to support her achieve positive results, which they did for her University application. Charlotte continues to improve in Chemistry and is feeling 100% more confident in her ability to do well in her A Levels in whatever format they will take place this year. Thank you John

Tutors Response :

Dear Linda,
It is great fun helping Charlotte. She is a clever girl who responds very well to advice and her progress with chemistry has been absolutely exceptional. I`m so pleased to see how confident she is again and she will go on to do really well at university. I`m really proud of her and she is such a credit to you. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to help her. Best wishes, John

Dr John provided tutoring to our son to prepare him for A Level Biology exams in Autumn 2020. Our son required an A* for Cambridge entry and hadn`t had any teaching since March due to Covid-19. Dr John provided all the support and preparation necessary for a successful result and gave realistic feedback, useful support materials and structured homework in twice weekly online tutoring sessions over a two month period. Delighted that the A* was achieved under such difficult circumstances and I would recommend Dr John`s A level tutoring.

Tutors Response :

To be out of school for so long and then get the A* is a superb outcome. Nice one Dejan and thank you again as lessons were always pacy and great fun. Good luck at Cambridge!

John is a fantastic teacher. My ten year old daughter enjoys her lessons with John, and they get along splendidly. In fact she always looks forward to their lessons! John is always responsive to mum’s endless queries and requests! I can’t thank him enough!

Tutors Response :

Dear Sahar,
Thank you for the lovely feedback. You can be confident that Ozaz will do well in the 11+ exams as she has made really good progress. It is an absolute pleasure to help her.

She has found his lessons really very helpful indeed, particularly his patient manner and clear explanation. The focused revision sessions have been invaluable and have really helped her exam technique. Very pleased!

Thank you for the kind feedback. I really enjoy helping Alice and am pleased that she is making great progress.

I decided to use one tutor for all A Level subjects (Chemistry/Biology/Economics) and medical school entrance, using John for this has been the best decision I have ever made. He has an exceptional content knowledge across all subject areas, explanations are delivered with outstanding professionalism and using a wide variety of techniques to ensure an optimum level of pupil understanding and engagement. Compassionate and patient, not only adaptable to my daughter`s educational needs but inspiring and has immensely boosted her self-esteem. Thanks to John`s tutoring, she has now become an outstanding A* student and the knowledge, skills and confidence he has taught have provided her with an exemplary foundation in life. John is worth his weight in gold and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the lovely feedback Jane. It is a pleasure to help Elise and I am absolutely delighted with the progress that she has made. Best wishes, John

John gave my daughter two 90 minute sessions to help her to prepare for the Cambridge Natural Science NSAA. We were really delighted with the sessions. John quickly identified her strengths and the areas where she needed to practise. His kind comments about her ability gave her the confidence to study with intent and she will go into the exam feeling strong and ready. Thank you John.

John has been amazing in helping me build confidence in trying to complete A-Level Biology and Chemistry in one year. The lessons are always engaging and the exam techniques provided are so useful. I am really enjoying the course with John and would highly recommend him to anyone studying these A-Levels.

Tutors Response :

Dear Imogen,
It is a great pleasure to help you. You are very capable, really determined, and also great fun - I always look forward to our lessons together! Although we are doing both biology and chemistry in just a year you are already well ahead of schedule re getting those A*s and you are going to absolutely smash the exams. I`ve had tutees get 100% before and if you carry on progressing like this you`ll have a chance of doing it. I`m also looking forward to helping you with the personal statement and medical mock interviews. Good luck with the forthcoming UCAT and thank you again for being such a stellar student. Keep it up!

Many thanks, John

So far I have attended four sessions with John and I am extremely pleased with how they are progressing. John offers guidance and support to a high level and I am confident that he will help me to attain the highest grade I am capable of. I would recommend him to anyone studying A level Biology.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the feedback Theo.
It is an absolute pleasure to help you. You are hard working, always quick to ask, and you act immediately on advice. I`ll be very disappointed if you get an A, we are definitely aiming for a comfortable A*.

John is clearly very passionate and knowledgeable about the subjects he teaches and in wanting to help his tutees reach their full potential. He is helping my daughter to understand the exam topics and thereby increasing her confidence. This is backed up with the provision of questions to work through ready for the next session. He is very friendly and approachable and keen to update me regularly.
