Information about John

Doctorate, Oxford Uni, 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 250 pupils to get into Oxford, Cambridge, or Medical School. In the last three years ALL of my regular A level students have gained the A* and over the past 10 years my A* / A rate at A level is 100%. All the university students that I`ve helped have gained a First. I also have a great record at GCSE with nearly all my students gaining 9s. For instance in late April I took on a boy who had just scraped a 3 in his March mock exam. In late May he had to take his GCSE so we had to work very hard together for a few weeks. He gained a 9. I have also helped over 50 students prepare for their 11+ and 13+ with many of them gaining prestigious scholarships to top schools.

Experience: Very experienced and highly successful A level teacher and examiner. I am particularly well set up for online tuition with a large dedicated office, fast PCs, superfast fibre broadband connection, HD webcam and an absolute wealth of digital resources. Before teaching I worked as a biochemist at Oxford University and then as an accountant and tax consultant for Deloitte. 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 best that I can for each student.

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!

I can highly recommend John as thoroughly professional tutor even though my son eventually decided to use another tutor. John is incredibly knowledgable and a perfect mentor. Thank you, John!

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.
