Information about John

I have 17 years experience teaching Secondary Science/Physics in the UK state sector and a further 2 years at a leading international school in Bangkok. In the last few years I have worked as a freelance Teacher/Tutor in schools and privately.

I am a patient and adaptable tutor and more than willing to work with the specific needs of the tutee. I have a wealth of experience teaching in different schools and different specifications. I have taught the following subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy at GCSE Physics at IGCSE Physics, Environmental Science, Science in Society at AS Physics at A2 Physics at IB Higher level. I am also a qualified and experienced teacher of English as a Foreign Language.

Availability: Mostly after school and evenings during school term time.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: In my teaching experience I have had the opportunity to teach students of the highest calibre. Several of my A level students have achieved top grades in Physics and moved on to study at Oxford and Cambridge. I have taught in both selective and non-selective schools and encountered students from all backgrounds and with differing levels of ability. From this experience, I have developed a wide range of teaching strategies and resources. I have also had experience of working as a research scientist, and this informs my teaching of ‘how science works’, which I feel is a very valuable component of the science curriculum.

My son is really pleased with the A LEVEL physics support John is offering. John is able to make the subject accessible at all levels. He seems to have an ability to communicate with students quickly and effectively. My wife and I would be very happy to recommend him. We will post again after the results.

John is a very reliable, knowledgeable and resourceful tutor. He has a clear way of explaining concepts which is really helping my daughter with her A-Level Physics. He is more than happy to answer questions outside of the lessons. He will research and find relevant resources for the lessons and tailors the sessions to my daughters needs. He is proving a valuable investment.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind words. I am very pleased that your daughter is finding the sessions useful.
