Information about Jonas

Hi there!

I am a professional online Maths, Physics, Chemistry tutor with 6 years of experience and a Chemical Physics Master`s degree from the University of Edinburgh (Honours + Edinburgh Award). Besides the fact that I have got 100% in Maths, Physics and 98% in Chemistry exams, I have also received many awards in scientific competitions as well as a Silver medal in the International Science Olympiad. With more than two thousand hours of experience in SQA, OCR, AQA, Edexcel GCSE, A-Level and National 5, enhanced DBS and PVG checks, I can provide modern, professional and flexible online tutoring.

In my experience, online tutoring is as effective as in person, with the added flexibility that your busy schedule demands. It allows you to access the best tutors in the field nationwide instead of relying on local supply. I offer personalised lessons, more than just tutoring. I assess student’s needs, accordingly customise study resources, teach the student, provide homework and send feedback after each lesson.

Why don`t we have a trial online lesson and we would see how it goes? Most of my students, who agree to try, continue having online lessons and you can find their reviews on my profile. If you are interested in my tuition, do not hesitate to contact me and we will arrange a lesson at a time that is the most suitable for you.

My weekly lessons are charged at a rate of £39/hour. You may also request one-off lessons at a rate of £49/hour. If you cancel 2 or more of your weekly lessons in any 2 months period, you may lose your weekly slot. This prioritises students that need consistent support with their preparation for exams.

Here is some more information about me:

When did you start tutoring?
I have started tutoring one of my classmates while I was still in secondary school. It was a rewarding experience and it is quite interesting to go back to those times and compare how much has changed over the years in my lessons.

Why do you tutor?
I was always passionate about explaining Maths and Science to my peers back in school but I could have never imagined that it would become such a core part of my life. Tutoring is not just a source of income for me, it’s something that makes me feel valuable in society, it allows helping so many amazing students around the UK to proceed in their future studies and careers. And it was never just theory and exams that we cover during our lessons, my tutoring sessions inevitably involve critical thinking and applying the knowledge in real life, thus I can contribute to students‘ lives even more.

What is your biggest tutoring success story?
Creating my own professional database of exam-type questions (the aforementioned startup) proved to be a success in my tutoring career since it allowed to spend more time and energy on creating quality resources for students and reuse them during different lessons. It was hard to see the value of the questions initially, but I have noticed that some students started to appreciate them so much that they no longer want to use a textbook during our lessons and I can focus more on their solutions rather than creating questions on the spot. Fast forward two years, 97% of my lessons are delivered using this system!

What is your biggest tutoring failure?
I could not distinguish a particular biggest failure while tutoring but there have been several cases when I was able to assess my tutoring, communication, preparation for lessons and enhance them accordingly. Such cases are responsible for the current structure of my lessons, communication with students and their parents, software and hardware that I use for tutoring and messaging. It really seems that every new challenge creates an opportunity for my services to be improved.

What are the students you love and hate to teach?
To be honest, I have not had any students that I hated to teach, they all are just different. With some pupils we have to thoroughly go through every concept in a topic and revise them later to build the knowledge up. However, that is not always the case with students who are already successful and aim for excellence. They usually solve provided questions quite quickly and I am just left checking answers and correcting silly mistakes. Therefore, I love tutoring every student, regardless of their skills and knowledge.

Who are you as a person?
I love reading books, I try to live a healthy life and be a responsible consumer. For 10 years I was a professional performer of dancesport, I was a swimmer with fins, a solo singer and participant in various science olympiads. I like reading articles, listening to talks and podcasts about how science and technology can be applied in both our lives and solving environmental problems.

What`s your teaching style?
Students might decide by themselves how they want to learn during tutoring sessions, but otherwise, I always personalise my lessons according to their level and aims. There is always an option to go through a past paper or questions that a student did not understand at school or we can cover some topics fully by using a textbook. However, if they just want to revise a broader part of a subject or to cover something that they have missed at school, we can solve thousands of exam-like questions that I have got covered.

What’s your favourite place to teach?
Online

Availability: Primarily 12 noon to 7 PM Monday to Friday. Please contact me directly and I will let you know my availability since it is changing constantly.

Willing to travel: 1 miles

Experience: For working with children I have both DBS (UK) and PVG (Scotland) certificates. In recent years I have already helped more than 150 students in National 5, Higher, GCSE, A-level Maths, Physics. Many of my students appreciated my flexibility not only to change the time of lessons but also to discuss various topics in these four subjects without informing me in advance.

In my tutoring sessions with students we go through the topics where they struggle, solve past exam papers and I remind them the theory of the subject. I tend to explain the basic principles firstly, later I am developing students’s ability to solve problems by themselves starting from easy questions and building knowledge to thinking required solutions.

DBS Check: Yes

My grandson has gained so much confidence in the 2 sciences he receives tutorials in, from Jonas. Jonas is always very well prepared & at exactly the right level. He provides in depth reports after each tutorial giving levels of understanding & referring exactly where a little more revision is needed. I would highly recommend.
