Information about John
*Online, and/or in person tutoring once coronavirus restrictions are relaxed*
I am a full time secondary school science teacher in Oxfordshire.
I qualified as a teacher (PGCE) with the University of York in 1997, then started my career in the North East at a secondary school in Yorkshire. I moved South in 1999 and have been working in Oxfordshire secondary schools for 20 years. Throughout my career I have held additional positions of responsibility, such as Head of House and Head of Year. I live in Witney with my wife and 3 children.
I teach Combined Sciences to GCSE students across all abilities and share some A Level teaching responsibilities. Most of my tutor work is concentrated on GCSE and A Level Chemistry across all exam boards. I am happy to do tutoring sessions online or in person (once this is deemed safe regarding the Coronavirus pandemic).
I have a recent clear DBS check.
I have been a private tutor for 8 years now and am very happy to tailor tutoring to my tutees specific requests and needs. We go at a pace that the tutee is happy with to ensure they fully understand the topic. I am available via email in the periods between tutoring sessions and am happy for tutees to contact me with questions or requests.
Availability: Most weekday evenings, possibly Saturday mornings.
When in person tutoring restarts and if you would prefer this, I accept pupils from Witney and the surrounding villages (approx 5 miles)
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: Teaching of secondary science particularly AQA core and additional science, OCR Chemistry and also triple chemistry.
I have taught A level applied science for the past 5 years with an emphasis on chemistry. I have also taught A level Chemistry and tutored students for A level Chemistry.
Feedback For John (6)
John is working with our 17 year old daughter to help with A level chemistry. She enjoys working with him: he is calm and methodical with her, which is the style of teaching she needs.
John has made my son more confident when it comes to tests. He finds him approachable, easy to talk to and understands his learning style well. I would recommend him as a tutor without hesitation.
My son has blossomed under John in the short time he has been with him. His confidence has improved massively. Very happy
John was an excellent tutor and my daughter got a lot out of the time with him. He was friendly and approachable and was always Available when needed and helped my daughters grades go up. Thank you
