Information about Andrew
I am an experienced tutor and Chemistry graduate of both Oxford and Cambridge universities. I tutor both GCSE and A-level students who have found science to be a bigger challenge than they expected or those who want expert guidance during their studies.
Of course, good results don`t happen by chance, which is why I work hard to identify where students need support, prepare suitable material to address those needs and encourage students to adopt good study habits.
I am particularly strong in tutoring effective study and exam techniques which are often poorly taught at school. If you need help with either of those, or with your confidence to `do` Physics or Chemistry, I can help!
Availability: After school and most evenings or weekends. I am also available during the daytime to tutor A-level students on study periods. Due to the current viral pandemic, some flexibility in the arrangements for tuition may be required.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I have tutored at GCSE and A-level for the last three years both online and in person. I used to teach undergraduates at Cambridge University (2nd, 3rd and 4th year students) and have trained others in a one-to-one capacity in industry as a senior scientist and post-doctoral researcher.
In addition to tutoring, I also worked for Cambridge Assessments as an examiner for the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) for two seasons.
Feedback For Andrew (10)
Andrew only taught my son for a short period before Covid-19 put a stop to the 2020 A-levels! However, from the very first lesson we were very impressed. My son told me that Andrew had a friendly approach, which put him at ease, and that he explained difficult concepts in a way that made it easy to understand. Most of the lessons were 1-2-1 in person but, once Covid-19 social distancing restrictions came into force, he was able to quickly & efficiently switch to online teaching.
Andrew has already been a great help to my daughter who has been struggling with chemistry. He is reliable, friendly and would definitely recommend him.
Andrew immediately put my son at ease and assessed his gaps in his learning. His sessions are targeted, clear and challenging. We are extremely pleased with his sessions and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else.
Andrew has been supporting my daughter for approximately a month so far. Her confidence has improved in this short period of time with the combination of Andrew explaining topics during their tutor session and weekly homework. If your child needs support with Physics I recommend Andrew!
Andrew is an extremely knowledgeable, well-prepared tutor. He is punctual, clear and engaging. He works at a good pace and reinforces the topic with verbal questions during the session and a homework sheet to make sure that the information has been retained. He challenges with exam style questions and has given my daughter confidence in her growing ability. We are extremely lucky to have found him and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
An extremely capable tutor, tutorials are planned in detail and delivered in an informal yet incisive manner. He has extensive academic knowledge of Physics and Chemistry but, at the same time, is able to bring the subjects to life in an understandable way for the tutee. We are all extremely happy with the tutor and would highly recommend him.
Andrew, has been helping my son with his A`Level Chemistry preparation for a couple of months now. Andrew prepares exceptionally well, covering all syllabus areas and It is amazing what he achieves in a one hour session. He always sends a follow up e-mail to my son restating what has been covered. We would not hesitate in recommending him.
Andrew has been an excellent tutor for my daughter who`s confidence in Chemistry has improved no end. She is now achieving better test results at school and feels that she has a good understanding of her subject, ready for revision now.
Andrew was well prepared, had researched the specific exam board I was doing for my GCSE chemistry and set me lots of work to then review with him at the next session. He was good at explaining things and was really flexibly with times to meet. I would definitely recommend him.
Andrew is a passionate and very able tutor. Our son, currently sitting his GCSEs, benefited hugely with only two tutorials. I highly recommend him.
