I was a very succesful Head of Department and since retirement I have been giving private tuition. I am familiar with all the major syllabi including Edexcel, OCR and AQA.
I like to make my sessions relaxed, interesting and enjoyable but challenging and introduce methods to achieve exam success in all sessions including revision and examination technique.
I teach all the GCSE science subjects and A level Chemistry.
Here is some feedback from students or parents.
