Information about Rob
I am a qualified science teacher and tutor, with 6 years experience of teaching A Level Chemistry and Physics. My students have made fantastic progress and achieved grades up to A* at A Level. Several of my students have gone on to study at the best universities in the country including Oxbridge.
As a qualified and experienced teacher, I can explain science very clearly, enabling you to develop a solid understanding of each topic. Also, as an Expert Examiner in Chemistry and Physics, I can help you understand what each question wants and how to gain full marks on it.
I am a friendly, enthusiastic and supportive tutor with very high expectations of progress and achievement. With my help as your tutor, youll develop the understanding and exam technique needed to achieve the highest grades possible in your final A Level exams. My former students have all given me extremely positive feedback (5 stars) and highlight how my enthusiasm, knowledge and ability to explain difficult concepts in Science has really helped them to quickly gain more confidence and a deeper understanding.
Availability: I am now fully booked for the academic year 2020-2021.
Please note that I specialise in A Level tutoring. Unfortunately I am not able to offer tutoring at GCSE.
Willing to travel: Home Only

Feedback For Rob (12)
Rob is teaching my daughter Chemistry and Physics. We have started with Chemistry and so far she has had two lessons. Rob is a very professional teacher who understands the level and capability of his students. His way of teaching is clear and has given my daughter a lot of confidence for A-Level Chemistry. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for help with their A-Levels.
Rob is an excellent tutor. My daughter has found him to be extremely supportive, enthusiastic and helpful. Delighted to have found him.
My son has found Rob to be an exceptional tutor who is helping apply the knowledge, as well as just learn it. He always responds fast and often helps in-between sessions when my son has quick questions.
Rob is a brilliant tutor, very helpful and very patient in explaining things. Highly recommend him.
Really clear and precise. Very easy to understand what he is teaching. Friendly and easy to talk to, but keeps the focus on the work. Flexible in dealing with the subjects you need, and with times. Excellent!
I would recommend Rob to anyone in need of a chemistry tutor! Suffice to say before Rob began tutoring me I had little confidence in chemistry however with Robs patience and knowledge I gained more confidence and my grades improved. Rob showed enthusiasm for chemistry which translated into me enjoying chemistry more. He was always prepared with resources to help me. I cant recommend Rob enough!
Would recommend to anyone in need of a chemistry tutor. Suffice to say as someone who struggled with chemistry but at the end of tutoring with Rob his enthusiasm for the subject had translated onto me. Rob was always patient and knowledgeable and would always have multiple approaches in explaining things to ensure I understood. Rob has enabled me to become more confident in chemistry as well as my grades improving significantly.
I have received tutoring from Rob for a couple of months now, to help me prepare for my A Level Chemistry exams. He has been fantastic; he is calm, professional, attentive and supportive. It is clear that he knows his subjects very well and he has an incredible supply of resources that he uses to supplement teaching in the sessions, such as exam examples, notes and practice questions. He has a dedicated space in which he teaches, and it makes sessions very comfortable. I think it is also important to note that I had very little confidence in my Chemistry ability before I started these sessions, but Rob has been so supportive and not only improved my understanding of the subject, but also made me much more comfortable going in to my exams. I will definitely be recommending Rob to people I know and if I needed a tutor again myself, I would 100% choose him. He is a wonderful tutor!
I have had some extra Chemistry tuition from Rob in preparation for my upcoming A Level exams and I have to say that he has really made a massive difference to my preparation for them, his patience and professional approach has been a huge help to me and made me feel so much more confident in sitting the exams. I would definitely recommend Rob to anyone who is thinking of the extra tuition and would not hesitate using him again.
Rob is a very professional tutor who is currently teaching my son who is in year 11. The sessions are going very well and I have positive feedback from both my son and Rob.
