Information about David

I`m married with two children who have now left university and started professional life.
My wife is a Primary school teacher.
I`ve been teaching and tutoring in the Chippenham, Bath and Bristol areas for 12 years.

I believe that if children and young people enjoy Science and Maths they do well.

I look forward to being of service.

David, Tutor

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: I`m an experienced and enthusiastic qualified Sciences and Maths teacher.

I`ve taught at both state and private schools in the South West and still service schools in the area on a supply basis with my tutoring and teaching services.


I currently offer:

My daughter needed a tutor because she had missed out on a lot of learning during lockdown and as a result was very weak in physics and chemistry. In a handful of lessons with David she has gained confidence and achieved a 7 in her first science gcse mock exam. This should only improve. David has been very patient with her, but also firm and very clear about his expectations. He has also been flexible with regards to fitting in extra classes in the run up to the exams. David communicates well - I always get feedback and he plans each class in advance so that my daughter knows what to expect and they don`t waste any time. Initially classes were face to face; my daughter was a bit apprehensive about this but David put her at ease immediately. More recently all classes have been done remotely but this has also worked very well, we didn`t really notice the transition. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to any student that needs help with the GCSE Science subjects.

Tutors Response :

Hi Eve

Thank you so much for your feed back which is encouraging.

I`ve enjoyed Isabel`s enthusiasm and appreciation for my input in Physics and Chemistry
where I look forward to the progress of each session.
We`ve covered some quite challenging concepts over the last few weeks and Isabel is clearly
making leaps in these sciences. I understand that Isabel is already confident with the Biology
so we remain focussed on the Physics and Chemistry next year.

My son needed help with GCSE Science and Maths and we only contacted David weeks before the final exams. David very kindly prioritised him and met with his within days of our request and then (due to lack to available time) introduced us to one of his colleagues who was then able to give a a few more lesson.

David has been of great help to our daughter as she approaches her A Level Chemistry mocks. David is professional, polite and prompt and we are very grateful to him. We will be no doubt back in touch in the Autumn.

Excellent science tutor - David made harder topics appear easy which is a huge confidence booster. He is very engaging , excited about his subject and we are extremely pleased we have found him. Our girl feels on top of chemistry and enjoying it again.
