Information about Mark

I am an experienced and highly qualified tutor offering A level and GCSE Chemistry tuition. I have a First Class Honours degree in Chemistry and a PhD in Chemistry from Manchester University, and have many years of experience in teaching chemistry, including teaching small groups and one-to-one tutoring.

I am an approachable, patient and enthusiastic tutor, and I aim to build confidence, stimulate interest and enhance knowledge through a relaxed, informal and flexible approach to tutoring.

I employ a range of approaches to address different learning styles, always tailored to the individual student. I make use of a wide range of resources, including bullet-point revision notes, regular testing via short quizzes and exam-style questions on each topic, to consolidate understanding and improve exam technique, including recognition of key words and phrases in exam questions.

Availability: I am available to take on new students from Mondays to Thursdays, usually after 4pm and usually in the student`s home.

I am also available to offer some daytime slots from Monday to Friday: these are particularly popular during study-leave periods prior to examinations and for home-schooling students.

Experience: I have twenty plus years’ experience of teaching and tutoring chemistry and forensic science, from GCSE up to PhD level. I have worked in the chemical industry and in universities in the UK and Canada. I have recently taken early retirement from my post as a university lecturer to concentrate on consultancy and private tuition work.

I have been offering private tuition for six years. During that time, my students have achieved excellent results, often with significant grade improvements, and many of my first-year students have returned for tuition during their second year. Many of my A-level chemistry students have gone on to study at prestigious universities, such as Liverpool University Medical School and Nottingham University School of Veterinary Medicine, and last year all my regular students achieved grade C or above in A-level chemistry.

Most tuition takes place on regular a weekly basis in one hour sessions, but longer lessons can be arranged, and these are particularly popular at exam-revision time. I also am happy to see students on an occasional basis to cover specific requirements.

I have a current and up-to-date DBS certificate.

I am happy to provide contact details of former students/parents who have agreed to provide references.

Mark is a great help. My son was struggling in his A level Chemistry and after the 1st year mock he got an E. He is in his 2nd year and has had another test at school and has got a C. My son had lost much of his confidence for the subject and was beginning to regret taking the subject but Mark has helped him so much that his confidence is back. He`s happier and more confident at getting a good grade so he can go on to university.

Mark has been extremely helpful to enhance my knowledge and understanding of chemistry over the past two years. He helped me to correct any areas of weakness in my classwork and made me resources to practice from. His work has assisted me in gaining a place at university for Veterinary Medicine. I would highly recommend him for people in the north Staffordshire area.
