Information about Mel

About Myself
I am a 47 year old father of three children living in Stockport. I have previously worked as a Post Doctoral scientist at the University of Manchester and have now been tutoring for several years. I have a modern approach to tutoring and try to keep things fun and interesting.

Current holder of Enhanced DSB certificate.

Availability: I offer tuition in the evening after school and at weekends and during school holidays. I tutor in your home.

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Experience: Teaching experience
I have taught at every level including University, A level, GCSE and Primary and have achieved success at every level, from an 8 year old pupil who achieved his Silver and Gold times tables certificate after 2 months, to successful entry into grammar schools and "A" grade A levels. I am currently supporting an autistic student to achieve his goal of entry into Grammar school.
I am currently tutoring several children in year 5 to prepare for the 11+ /entrance exam for Grammar schools in the Trafford and Stockport. I am also teaching several A level student preparing for the AQA Biology exam in June. I have an excellent track record of gaining excellent grades.
I also have classroom experience in Primary schools, teaching mathematics and science to children in KS2 on a one-to-one basis.

Approach to tutoring
My teaching strategy for students preparing for a specific exams, is to concentrate on exam technique and completing past exam papers. For younger children who are struggling in school or need to catch up, I take each subject back to basics and provide strategies for learning.

Dr Mel was tutoring my 10 year old son for the 11+. He has a really scientific and logical approach to the questions which my son really thrived on. He has good resources and a great manner with kids that keeps them engaged.

Mel was very helpful, my daughter only had a few lessons with him before school got their act together with online lessons, but he gave her some great tips for revising for the GCSEs, and it helped her to feel confident she could get her learning under control. Thanks Mel.

We’ve been using Mel now for a few weeks to help our daughter prepare for her 11+ exams. She already had a mound of CGP and Bond books and all the practice papers in the world however we still felt that she needed more clarity. Mel has given her just that. He’s found areas she can work on and given her plenty of work to support that. We are now fully confident that she’s got the best tutor for the job and also recommend him to friends and family. Great tutor and so lucky to have him.

My daughter only had Mel for a short period as A levels have now been cancelled, however, she found him to be a great teacher and really helped in revision and exam preparation.

Mel immediately established a rapport with my son who is doing A level biology. His teaching style is relaxed and casual and perfectly suited my son. He help enormously in a very short period of time and gave Ben a level of confidence that he previously lacked. Ben has been most grateful for his help with this subject.

I had Mel for only a few months and he boosted me up 3 grades from what i was previously in Biology A level. A very focused and exam technique based teaching style. An excellent tutor.

Mel is always punctual and well prepared for his lessons. He is polite and knows his work inside out. We have seen a huge leap in the ability of our little one in all areas. Mel has been invaluable in getting him prepared for the 11+
He always sets homework and goes through it at the beginning of each visit. He has his own special approach with which he teaches. Judging by the results we have seen and the reviews of others, it clearly works really well. Thank you so much, we all look forward to your next visit.
