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.

My daughter is very pleased with Alan`s tutoring and has made good progress already.
Alan was a great tutor for my daughter`s A level Chemistry, he is very knowledgeable and gave in depth details of various subject areas, he went the extra mile in lessons which were not rushed. He checked she was understanding things before moving on. He was very quick to reply and was able to be very flexible about the times and days for the lessons and we would definitely recommend him.
