Information about Dan
I am a full time teacher with over twenty years experience in the independent sector. I have been a Head of Department/Faculty and have taught on a number of revision courses. I have written a number of revision guides/workbooks for a leading publisher.
My approach is relaxed yet purposeful and I work together with tutees to ensure that they have a solid grasp of the foundations of the subject. This enables confidence and belief to increase and as such rapid progress can be made in a short period of time.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have been a teacher/Head of Chemistry for over twenty years at GCSE/IGCSE and A-Level in some of the leading independent schools in the UK. In addition I have written a number of revision guides/workbooks for a leading publisher and worked as an examiner/moderator for A-level and GCSE.
I have tutored on an individual/small group basis for over ten years.
Feedback For Dan (9)
Very professional and courteous When we met for the first time, I was very impressed that Dan took the time to show me his identification, CRB check etc and explain how he tutors. My son found the sessions really helpful and has asked to use Dan again for the tricky Chemistry topics.
A highly professional tutor. My son appreciated the clarity of explanation and the tailor-made approach to his needs, and looked forward to each session.
Excellent tutor who explains chemistry clearly and in an interesting way to my 17 year old son
I can`t recommend Dan highly enough. He is a superb tutor. He has given my son confidence in himself and knowledge for his GCSE in one short lesson. Amazing
My daughter is having chemistry lesson from Dan for her A level. She loves her lessons and feels much more confident in her ability. Dan is extremely professional, flexible and is able to impart knowledge and understanding where the college has failed. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dan as a tutor.
Dan has been covering the GCSE Chemistry syllabus with my daughter for a month and in such a short space of time she is so much more confident in the subject. He is extremely, patient , knowledgeable ,and has all the resources available to ensure that he can cover any topic under the syllabus. He replied to all my initial queries very promptly which straight away reflected on his professionalism. We will continue to have lessons with him for A level once the GCSE`s have finished. He is an excellent tutor.
