Information about Paul

- Oxford Chemistry graduate (double first)
- Fully qualified secondary science teacher
- 6 years of experience teaching in leading British independent schools
- International education scholar and EdTech specialist
- Demonstrated history of helping students boost grades and achieve their full potential.

I am a fully qualified teacher with a passion for education, science and technology. As a tutor, I strive to make learning engaging and fun and have a demonstrated history of helping my students achieve top grades in their science examinations. I ensure that all of my students have a comprehensive and robust understanding of key scientific phenomenon as well as the necessary exam skills to achieve highly in assessments. I am passionate about the use of technology in education and regularly leverage online tools to support the learning of my students both inside and outside of the classroom.

I hold a bachelor’s and master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Oxford (double first), a PGCE from the University of Buckingham, and a master’s degree in educational technologies from the University of Pennsylvania. Throughout my own education, I have excelled academically – my studies have been made possible by four merit-based academic scholarships, including a highly competitive international scholarship from graduate study in the USA.

Availability: I am available to tutor at any time.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Upon graduating from the University of Oxford, I spent four years teaching in top British independent schools. My primary responsibilities included teaching chemistry, physics, maths and astronomy to all years and overseeing chemistry Oxbridge applications. Alongside helping my students achieve top grades, I regularly organised enrichment opportunities for the wider school community. I have experience teaching the full range of abilities and pride myself on my ability to adapt my teaching style to address the unique needs of each student.

In addition to teaching, I have tutored extensively over the past five years. This experience has provided me with a comprehensive knowledge of many exam boards, including IGCSE, IB, A Level and Pre-U. Key to the success of my tutees is ensuring they develop a deep understanding of scientific phenomena and adopt appropriate study habits to support their learning. I rely on tried and tested pedagogical techniques to deepen understanding and aid memory in preparation for final examinations.

Paul is a fantastic tutor. He is knowledgeable, passionate and was able to grasp my son`s needs very quickly. He has exceeded all my expectations as not only my son has acquired a deep understanding of the Year 12 chemistry curriculum in a short amount of time but now he is very fond of the subject and looks forward to the lessons. I would highly recommend Paul!

My daughter was struggling at school with understanding the basics of her chemistry GCSE. From the first lesson, Paul was able to explain the difficult concepts that my daughter was struggling with in a way that she comprehended and and was able to apply straight away - it was like he switched a light on in her head. From struggling in class and being under confident, she is now rapidly rising to the top thanks to Paul`s excellent tutoring. I am sure that in the not too distant future, once Paul has finished going over the early wasted school lessons, my daughter will be at the top! His lessons are well prepared and detailed, and the best part is that my daughter loves working with him. We found an absolute diamond when we found Paul - what a brilliant tutor.

Paul is an excellent Alevel chemistry tutor, our daughter who had a weak year 12 due to Covid is making great gains since starting weekly tutoring with Paul.

I was looking for an experienced tutor to support my bright (but anxious) teen, as she began her A-Level journey. I knew we wanted someone with a lot of teaching experience in chemistry but also someone who could engage my extremely hesitant young person. Paul did all of that perfectly. He was responsive to all of my preliminary questions, able to tell me how he would organise his lessons and adapt them to my child’s particular needs. He did that in such a sensitive and skilful way that my teen (who is usually very conservative) told me spontaneously how much she really liked him - and that’s after just one 30 minute meeting. He is a very nice, genuine tutor and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending him to anyone. Teaching well on line, making learning interesting, collaborative, individual but effective is not at all easy. With Paul, you’ll get support, encouragement, kindness and excellent quality teaching with a nice sprinkling of warmth and optimism throughout. He’s just super!

Paul was exceptional. He has an excellent delivery style, is patient and clear in his explanations. A first class tutor - couldn`t recommend more. We certainly hope to go back to him if my daughter requires assistance with her A Level in Chemistry (currently GCSE). Thanks Paul!

Paul has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. My son is responding well in his Chemistry lessons. He is always well organised, on time and ready with plenty of relevant material. Paul is also creative with his approach and very encouraging. I highly recommend him.
