Information about Jonathan

I most recently taught teach GCSE Science and A Level Physics (both AQA) at the Kensington Aldridge Academy. For the 2 years before that I taught junior Science and senior Physics (Cambridge iGCSE and A Level) at Avondale College, Auckland, New Zealand. Prior to that, I taught Science at King`s School, Canterbury, from years 9 through to year 12 (Edexcel iGCSE and Eduqas A Level). Finally, during my first 2 years of teaching, I taught science at KS3, KS4 and KS5 (AQA) at the Folkestone Academy in Kent. This was as part of the Teach First graduate scheme.*

I have 6 years of classroom experience teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics across KS3, KS4 and KS5 to a very wide range of abilities. I am experienced in raising attainment for low achieving pupils, and stretching high ability students to reach their full potential. I have also been tutoring Science and Maths privately for over 10 years.

I graduated from Imperial College London having studied Physics where I pursued several extra-curricular activities. I captained the basketball first team for two seasons during which time I organised subsidised trips to Holland and France and oversaw the team gain its first ever promotion. I also took up skydiving and I am continuing to complete my BPA `A` skydiving license. While in New Zealand, I gained a new-found love for the outdoors and now regularly enjoy hiking and seeking other outdoor adventures.

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, travel to unfamiliar locations and reading.

*(Teach First is an educational charity that places "exceptional graduates" in challenging secondary schools with students from "low socio-economic backgrounds" so as to eradicate educational disadvantage.)

Availability: Monday-Friday 8am - 8pm. (Schedule is currently flexible given the current COVID-19 circumstances.)

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I am a passionate, personable and fully-qualified teacher with experience teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics to students from KS3, KS4 and KS5. I have 6 years of teaching experience in the classroom and 10 years experience tutoring Maths and Science privately.

My attitude to tuition aims to motivate, enthuse and boost the confidence of pupils. I work with the student to help them understand what`s holding them back so that they`re aware of how they`re growing and developing. This offers them the chance to excel and achieve their full potential, as well as becoming successful life-long learners.

During my last year at university, I undertook a 16 week volunteer programme as a academic tutor/mentor with YELP (a university based volunteering scheme that aims to increase the academic achievements and aspirations of secondary school pupils through effective mentoring). I tutored secondary school pupils one-on-one in German, Maths, Geography, Physics and general science.

My son is studying A-Level Maths, he has found Jonathan to be extremely helpful, friendly and thorough. He has gone out of his way to help my son, even emailing solutions to any questions that have not been answered during his hour of tutoring. I would highly recommend Jonathan as a tutor.
