Information about John

I am a teacher of Biology to A Level, Science to GCSE and Environmental Studies; an Environmental Professional, Zoologist and Freshwater Biologist; and am fluent in Spanish and German

"John taught my son Biology in his A2 year. He was prompt, reliable & always came with a structured lesson plan. He worked with Jack particularly on the tricky areas that needed readdressing & taught him how to understand & answer the questions in order to gain the maximum marks. He was very patient & they worked through the areas together. Jack found John`s extra tutoring invaluable as he was not getting the help from school that he needed. He achieved an A grade & we can`t thank John enough. Thank You. The Thompson Family."

"Just to let you know, I`ve been accepted into Cardiff university and got a B in Biology. Thanks for all your help. Harry"

"Angus was really pleased, he got an A in Biology (7)! Thanks very much for all your help."

"Oscar did really well in his GCSEs! He got 7 and 7 in combined science. Thank you for all you input with Oscar, it obviously paid off! Best wishes"

"Aidan got a Double 5 in science and a 5 in Maths - the highest he could with the paper they entered him for so we are very please and super proud. Thank you for all your help and support. I’m sure he couldn’t of done it without you."

"My results went well - got three B’s and was accepted into Southampton so I’m very happy, thank you for all your help !!

"I got a 9 in biology and chemistry!!!! Thank you so much for all your help over the year it really paid off.
Best wishes,

Ruth (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

John was a very patient and understanding tutor with my daughter who has anxiety. He began helping her with GCSE Biology and then, because we were so pleased with his tutoring, we extended it to Chemistry and Physics. My daughter really enjoyed talking to John and he managed to keep her on track most of the time. He is a very kind and knowledgeable man. He was also very flexible and adaptable with the sessions and times booked. We were really pleased to find John through the site and would thoroughly recommend him.

Tutors Response :

Mnay thanks for your kind words Ruth. I do hope Beth is now fully recovered, and look forward to good news about her results. (Just back from 3 weeks sailing in France, hence the delayed reply)

John has been great so far. He originally started helping my daughter with Biology, with a noticeable improvement in her latest mock exam. We were obviously pleased and he is now tutoring her in all three sciences up to her exams. He is kind, patient and understanding and my daughter has found him easy to work with. She suffers from anxiety but has found working with John stress-free and he is very supportive and encouraging. I would highly recommend him.

John is helping my 16yr old son with GCSE physics. John has a very straight manor that suits my son. John is keen for his student to suggest topics to work on each week in order to tailor the sessions to suit them
