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.

Thanks Dr Mel
Your clear and simple explanation of techniques for doing non-verbal reasoning is amazing. Now my son is mastering it after only few sessions.

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.

Mel has now provided a number of sessions for my daughter in her 1st year of A Level Biology. She finds his sessions very clear and his approach very calm and friendly which, as she is very shy, is ideal. Contact with Mel has been prompt and efficient. Highly recommended.
