Information about Dara

I graduated with a degree in physics in 2018, and since then have been working as a maths and physics tutor with over 1000 hours tutoring under my belt. I have worked with Key Stage 3, A Level and university students. In 2022 I completed my PGCE and gained Qualified Teacher Status - during my PGCE year I spent 120 days teaching in two schools, and taught classes from years 7 – 13, across a range of abilities.

I take a student-led and personalised approach to tutoring. No two students are the same, and I enjoy working closely with my students to adapt to their needs and find the approach that works best for them! As a tutor, my job is to support my students to develop a deeper understanding, grow in confidence and reach their full potential.

Students learn best when they are given the opportunity to share and explore their ideas. I provide a positive learning environment where students are encouraged to try different approaches and feel comfortable to ask questions. As well as teaching key concepts, I focus on applying knowledge using examples and exam-style questions. By seeing how concepts are used in practice, my students gain a better understanding and develop the skills necessary for success in their exams.

Dara is an excellent teacher - he is explaining Maths and Physics to my son so clear, so he has no issues with understanding questions, which he was struggling with at school. Dara is very honest, correct, polite and accurate teacher, highly recommended!

Dara is great. He really connects with my son and whilst initially concerned about having a tutor, Dara has put him at ease and his manner is very relaxed. He sends through homework to check understanding and is happy to switch to a different topic at short notice if there is something my son has been covering at school that he wants clarification or further help on. If we have to make a last minute change Dara has been great accommodating that and has even done a Sunday session because we couldn`t fit it in during the week. My son is doing A-Level Physics and Dara is giving him more confidence and recently achieved an A* in his latest school assessment.

Dara is an exceptional tutor! His knowledge and understanding and ability to communicate that to the student is fantastic. My daughter is so much more confident going into her mock exams thanks to the tutoring and guidance from Dara and more importantly, really enjoys the lessons with Dara. We can not recommend Dara enough. Thank you for all your help so far!!

Dara has been absolutely brilliant at engaging my 15 year old son in maths (not easy) and building his confidence. He genuinely enjoys his lessons and learns a lot. I would highly recommend Dara.

Dara is an excellent tutor who is supporting my son in Alevel physics and maths. He has provided excellent support and guidance in what are difficult times. He really challenges Alex and is ensuring he is really for whatever 2021 a-level assessment will be. Thank you so much !!

Dara is an amazing teacher. I was struggling with a lot of the physics questions but he was knowledgable and helped layout the processes more efficiently and even does step by step examples to help you understand the physics questions a lot more better. He has helped built my confidence in the exams a lot. I would highly recommend him as a very great teacher.
