Information about Adam

I am a fully qualified and experienced secondary science teacher and have taught in an independent boarding school for 7 years, as well as in several other schools. I have many years of private tutoring experience on top, including the teaching of writing skills. Prior to teaching, I had a career in research and business development for the pharmaceutical industry.

I am also a writer, a member of several professional associations and a Chartered Biologist.

Although I`m a biologist by specialism, I have taught chemistry, physics and maths as well as IT, psychology and PSHE in the classroom, and have tutored related science-based subjects, such as geography and physical education.

Availability: Very flexible. Happy to adjust to your needs.

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Experience: See Comments section above.

In addition, I have been involved in the teaching and pastoral care of pupils with a wide range of SENs including dyspraxia, dyslexia, ADHD and autistic spectrum disorders. My own experience leads me to believe that such pupils are more responsive and much better guided to learn in a tutorial situation where a good relationship can be established between tutor and student.

My tutoring follows tried and tested techniques to maximize learning and is geared fully to the needs and aptitudes of the individual student. I also place emphasis on examination technique, guiding pupils, using past papers, to avoid common errors.

As a tutor I have taught students from many of the country`s top independent schools including, Eton, Harrow, Marlborough College, Bradfield College, Oundle, Elstree, and Rugby. I have been fortunate enough to see my students go on to university to study medicine, veterinary science, biochemistry and other practical, scientific and technological fields.
