Information about Sal

About me and my Experience:

I am a fully qualified tutor with a high first-class master`s degree in biochemical immunology and five years of successful experience. Tutoring is an enjoyable and rewarding career for me and I have proudly tutored over 100 repeat students, both privately and with various organizations and schools. Additionally, I have two years of secondary school classroom experience and I am familiar with the KS3 to A-level academic curricula. I have also worked with students with special educational needs (SEN) in these settings.

My goal as a tutor is to not only improve student achievement but also enhance their engagement. I am thrilled to share that my students have shown significant improvements in their subjects, with excellent feedback in science and mathematics. Many of my long-term students have not only enrolled in top global schools and universities, including St. George`s International School and the University of Nottingham, but have also received scholarships. One of my A-level students currently interns at the pharmaceutical Giant GSK, conducting research on oral healthcare product formulations. Here are a few examples of the outstanding academic improvements my students have achieved:

• An A-level chemistry student who previously obtained a D grade progressed to an A grade after just two months of four lessons per week.

• A GCSE student, initially predicted a grade 1 in Chemistry and a grade 4 in Maths, soared to a grade 7 in both subjects after two lessons per week for two terms.

• A long-term student, starting from level 1 in both sciences and Maths in Year 9, has now advanced to the top set for both subjects, entering Year 11, and even received recognition as the best GCSE Maths student in her year.

I want to emphasize that while all my tutees have demonstrated improvement and expressed satisfaction with my services, I cannot guarantee specific outcomes. However, I am dedicated to inspiring, motivating, and working hard for my students. To ensure your satisfaction, I am even willing to offer a money-back guarantee for our first session.

Beyond tutoring, I have been honored with the "Mentor of the Month" award during my university years. I actively participated in a team focused on enhancing student enjoyment, organization, and engagement. In my leisure time, I enjoy engaging in sports such as basketball and practicing karate. I also have a passion for exploring different cultures and languages. Currently, I am fluent in two languages and actively learning a third.

The Online tutoring experience:

In my years of tutoring, I have personally invested a significant amount of time and over £20,000 into technology, software, resources, my training, and other necessary investments to ensure a seamless premium experience both during and outside of the tutoring sessions. The high quality one-on-one tutoring sessions I offer are conducted online using interactive technologies like whiteboards. I adapt my teaching methods to cater to each student`s individual needs, requests, and subject knowledge. My primary focus is on creating a safe environment where students feel comfortable to learn, make mistakes, and actively engage with the covered content. I take confidentiality and safeguarding extremely seriously, ensuring the student`s safety throughout the tutoring process. By limiting the number of students I take on at any given time, I can provide personalized attention and a certain level of flexibility.

My approach involves addressing the identified gaps in knowledge and skills through practice questions, well-explained concepts, and step-by-step guidance to reach the correct answers. Once students have established a solid foundation of subject knowledge, I challenge them by training their ability to apply and connect their knowledge to new areas, as these skills are often tested by exam boards in higher-level suggest questions.

To go the extra mile for my students, I provide additional resources at no extra cost, including home experiments, homework assignments, weekly progress reports, targeted revision guidance, and supplementary study materials. Moreover, students enjoy lifetime access to our lesson materials, allowing them to learn at their own pace and review the content at any time. I am also more than happy to address any questions or concerns you may have, maintain open communication with teachers, and regularly check in on the student`s progress.

Overall, my main objective is to ensure that my students gain confidence in the subjects they are learning and witness overall improvement in their grades. However, I believe that an experienced tutor should also aim to progressively foster self-reliance in students. Therefore, I also strive to instill positive work habits and effective independent learning techniques along the way, which will benefit them not only in their current studies but also in the years to come. I am confident that you and your child will find my lessons to be highly satisfactory and a valuable investment in their academic journey.

My son has found great help from you tutor session. He went from not fonding any of the sciences to be fun at all and being stuck in foundation, to exceeding in class and pushing the higher grades of higher in a very short span of time. You are concise and straight to the point when it comes to tutoring effectively providing a very easy to understand lesson. Allowing for my son to process more information in a more optimal way. Overall you have been a great tutor helping my son exceed in science and providing him with more motivation to become a scientist in the future.

My son has been with Sal for a while in his build up to his GCSE`s and is finding Sal`s tuition very helpful. His ability to use interactive tools such as an online whiteboard, and his punctuality to lessons have been brilliant. Sal carefully explains every aspect of a new topic in great detail which coupled with his knowledge, has helped my son to go up a few grades. His mock-results have been significantly better, as you can see the tuition paying off. Would recommend!!

An amazing tutor! Sal has quickly identified the topics that my daughter finds difficult and any topics that she hasn`t covered, from the first initial assessment. This has really reassured my daughter and she feels more confident in Maths. Sal offers feedback on each lesson and offers homework. This really does help to embedd what she has learnt and helped her to revise her Mocks exam. My daughter has learnt alot in a short space in time. Highly recommend Sal!

Sal has made a real difference in a very short period of time which has already had a positive impact on his school work too. He has received an award for most improved and we are really optimistic that he will be able to move up a group now. I really think the homework in between lessons helps a lot as it maintains focus and consolidates learning. Thank you Sal, really can’t recommend you highly enough.

Great tutor, very calm and knowledgeable. My daughter feels confident in maths and science and has improved in school too.

Andreas (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Sal has a wide range of knowledge of the syllabus of all of KS3 and KS4, including being able to provide Syllabus sheets to mark off when a section is learned in the lesson and has many exams styled questions on hand. Even though online learning presents many challenges compared to face-to-face learning. Sal puts in the effort to make the lesson feel like face-to-face learning. For example, during the lessons Sal uses an online whiteboard which makes it feel like I am learning in school face to face which in my opinion helps me learn the most, and also makes it easier for me to go over everything learned as it is right in front of me. Sal also tries to make online tutoring/learning more face to face by using real-life situations to explain concepts and how things work including, occasionally using the objects around and putting them on the screen to demonstrate how something works which I think is going the extra mile. For homework, Sal sets a decent amount of homework that strongly relates to what has been learned in the lesson, at school, and from past lessons to help me work on answering exam styled questions which better prepares me for my assessments. Ever since Sal has started tutoring me, I have overall felt more confident with assessments as he has given me many exam styled questions and has told me how to improve my answers to better fit an examiner`s requirements to get higher marks which have gotten me higher marks. All these points above and many more are why I think Sal is a great tutor and I think you would too!

My daughter is in year 10 & has been struggling with maths for a while. She was a bit nervous about maths tuition especially online however Sal from the first session has made her feel comfortable & more at ease already with maths & her ability in getting a pass in year 11. She has only had a few sessions with him so far but she is enjoying it & said thanks mum it`s helping. The conversations I have had with him have also been very professional & helpful. I would recommend anyone who needs the help to see if Sal is suitable for you.

Five star Chemistry tutoring with Sal. My daughter confidence has grown and it is noticeable after each weekly session. Sal`s calm methodical approach is helping my daughter to understand and grasp the concepts she found difficult to pick up in her large class setting at school. Highly recommend Sal to parents whose children are not coping well in large class settings and require one to one in understanding the mysteries of chemistry.

Sal has been tutoring my son online for a few weeks and I cannot be more pleased. Sal is patient and takes the time to explain each topic and formula so it is understood. His use of a whiteboard is a great visual and my son likes being taught in this way. Sal`s prices are reasonable, he is always respectful. He makes a point to make contact during the week to check on my son`s progress with homework that was set, or if he needed any help in between tutor sessions. I cannot rate Sal highly enough and I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Sal is knowledgeable both within his subject field and in skills such as organisation, time management, essay-writing, and presenting. Organised and punctual, he prepares for each session in advance, with the lessons always starting on time. He is friendly, understanding, and easy to get on with. As someone who is generally shy with new people, I appreciate Sal’s ability to make one feel at ease in a conversation. He makes it ‘safe’ to make mistakes, which has proven to be very effective at encouraging me to be more active than in class or with other tutors I’ve had. Sal lets you feel like you`re perfectly capable of doing what you need to. He also adapts to his tutees’ needs and preferences in things like the pace at which you go through the material, level of detail you go into, and how much homework you want to have, if any. For example: because I have a processing issue that makes it difficult to write, especially while talking, Sal takes notes on the whiteboard and makes sure to pause when I am taking notes. He is patient and never rushes me, only continuing when I say I’m ready to move on. Sal gives thorough feedback with constructive criticism and attention to detail, as well as much-needed praise on strong points of your response. It is clear that Sal puts a lot of effort into his work, and is dedicated to helping his students, offering to assist with any questions or difficulties you may have between sessions via email. What I especially like about Sal is that he challenges and encourages you to push limits - for example: whenever we are covering a topic from the A-level curriculum, he gives me more detail on the subject to deepen my understanding (which I value very much), while also giving me advice and tasks to prepare for university

Tutors Response :

thanks so much for this review and I am happy that I`m able to help in all of those aspects.
Best wishes
