Information about Ian

An experienced tutor, I recently achieved a high merit in my MSc in Oncology at UCL, where I undertook extensive laboratory research into novel cancer therapies. Before embarking on my MSc, I studied Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at Durham University where I was awarded the undergraduate Physiology prize for my research. I am passionate about sharing my fascination with science and maths with my students.

During my time spent at Durham I would frequently partake in both formal and informal tutorials. I found this teaching process hugely rewarding.

Since the start of the year I have been working at Saint Cecilia’s School in Wandsworth where I have been teaching mathematics and science to children with special educational needs-both in the classroom and in one to one sessions. It is the best feeling when the light bulb flashes above my student`s heads and I see their enthusiasm growing.

I am hugely passionate about teaching maths as it is the bedrock of so much of what we do both in the classroom and everyday life. The applications of maths are limitless and although it can, understandably, be a source of trepidation and frustration for students, I am passionate about conveying how key mathematical ideas and concepts can be exciting-they don`t have to be boring!

Availability: I am currently only available for online tuition

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Working as an LSA at Saint Cecilia’s Wandsworth has given me great experience in teaching students between the ages of 11-18, both in private sessions and a classroom setting. I have comprehensive knowledge of the current science and mathematics curriculums for KS3 and KS4. I also have full knowledge of the A level Biology content. I am well placed to help children who are doing well and need a further push, as well as those who are really struggling and need more support in these difficult but crucial subjects.

Small group tutorials at university, in which ideas were shared and key concepts were discussed with a focus on self-directed learning, have given me a number of skills and knowledge that more advanced students will benefit hugely from. I regularly took part in additional informal tuition sessions with younger students, which provided me with great experience of teaching challenging material and encouraging gifted students.

I was also a regular member of journal club during my master’s degree, where new research of choice would be discussed and analysed in depth. This helped me develop the ability to articulate complex scientific ideas in a concise and accessible manner. I believe in the stages of higher education it is much more important for students to really grasp the key skills and develop their analytic abilities, which will later help them build knowledge independently.

Swift response. Duncan was happy to meet before tutoring started. Very pleasant. Has just started tutoring our son, enthusiastic and very encouraging and aware of how important confidence building is.
