Information about John

Hi. I’m John, a scientist of over 35 years standing and qualified science teacher with an infectious passion for chemistry. I offer professional, high quality private on-line tuition in GCSE (KS4) and A-Level Chemistry (KS5). I have a BSc (Hons) in Applied Chemistry, MSc with distinction in Analytical Chemistry and Instrumentation, and a PhD in Chemistry and have over thirty five years’ experience in analytical science. Most recently, having qualified as a Secondary School teacher (QTS), I was teaching Chemistry at Altrincham Grammar School for Girls before becoming a full-time tutor. I have Qualified Teacher Status with PGCE (University of Manchester) and am also a Chartered Scientist (CSci), Chartered Chemist (CChem) and a Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (MRSC). I have a current Enhanced DBS certificate, which is available for inspection as required.

Availability: I offer online tuition options to enable students from further afield to benefit from our tuition. One-to-one or group tuition is delivered through either Zoom (preferred) or Microsoft Teams in a highly interactive way. Utilising visualisers, graphics pad and software, we create bespoke tuition packages to enable you to achieve your Chemistry goals.
I have daytime availability as well as after-school during the week.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Throughout my time in academia (University of Manchester) as a Research Scientist, I published over 30 peer-reviewed papers, presented at national and international conferences and co-edited a text book on advanced proteomics (Analysis of protein post-translational modifications by mass spectrometry). As a former STEM ambassador and mentor, I have worked with young people of secondary school age (Year 7 to 6th Form), which, combined with me having a 14-year-old son and 17-year-old daughter of my own, gives me an empathy and understanding of this age-group of students.

My tuition style, whilst being highly professional, is very friendly and interactive - I encourage students to ask any questions throughout and check on their progress before moving on. I use whiteboard (Zoom) with graphics pad, visualiser for textbooks and past papers and custom-made slides and notes. I have conducted over 400 tuition lessons and have successful helped over 20 students to achieve their academic goals. Tuition with me does not end when the lesson ends and I encourage students to get in touch between lessons with any problems they encounter. Each student is treated as an individual with bespoke lesson plans designed to maximise their specific needs.

John is a very competent and knowledgeable tutor, he taught my son A-Level Chemistry covering both Year 12 and 13 content. John`s lessons are well structured and his use of technology is first class. My son has improved both his foundation knowledge and has built upon this with John`s help to an indepth skill set for Year 13. John prepared my son to answer exam questions to gain the maximum number of marks which was something he was struggling to come to terms with. I would highly recommend John as a A-Level Tutor, and will be seeking his help with my other children when the time comes.

I`m truly grateful to Dr.John for his valuable inputs and resources during his Chemistry lessons to my daughter during the last few weeks. Having spoken to my daughter after every class, I understand that he`s very knowledgeable, well organised with lot of handy resources, he`s got an adaptive approach, clarity in his explanation and flexible to cover topics of priority for my daughter. She enjoys his lessons, with her growing confidence in the covered topics and we look forward to continue with his lessons. As a parent, I`m very thankful to Dr.John for his continued support to my daughter. Thanks & regards, Nagraj
