Information about Gareth
During a teaching career of 24 years I have taught in three secondary schools. I have worked with many different students across the ability range. Within the school setting I have held many different roles, most recently being Head of Physics for 12 years Thomas Alleyne`s, Uttoxeter. Prior to that I have been a Head of Year for 9 years (Y7-Y11). I stopped classroom teaching in 2016. Most recently I have been involved in several local volunteer projects.
Availability: Available Monday-Thursday 4-9pm, daytime sessions are also available
Willing to travel: 12 miles
Experience: I have extensive experience delivering the science curriculum to students across the ability range. I have taught science at KS3 and KS4, physics at KS4 and A level, along with IB. For all these course I have developed schemes of work for students of all abilities.
As a Head of Year, Head of Physics and classroom teacher I have learnt that each student has their own set of strengths and weaknesses and so I can adapt my teaching and support as necessary.

Feedback For Gareth (1)
This tutor had a friendly, easy-going manner and quickly understood the needs of his pupil and the approach needed to hold his attention. He is obviously very experienced with the GCSE age group, asks appropriate questions and offers good explanations. He is highly recommended.
