Information about David
I am an enthusiastic and creative educator and I have been employed as a teacher for almost 35 years. I have taught chemistry in a variety of schools both in the UK and abroad. I now work part-time for St.Clares, Oxford where I am the Director of the IB Institute. My role involves the organisation of revision courses for students as well as training courses for teachers. I normally take on up to about about 10 -15 GCSE, AS, A2 or IB students each year as I love chemistry and find the process of sharing it with others thoroughly rewarding.
Availability: Flexible - Weekdays 9.00 - 20.00 except Wednesday.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have almost 35 years` experience teaching chemistry at GCSE, AS, and A2 as well as Higher and Standard Level IB. I have written GCSE chemistry texts for Pearson and Nelson Thornes and I was a content author for the New Media Multimedia Science School 16-18 project. I have been the Head of Science in two different schools.Contact this Tutor
Feedback For David (6)
My daughter seems to be getting on very well with David. He is able to go at her pace and is good at filling in the missing building blocks so hopefully success will follow.
David has a really good approach with students, very relaxed but informative. After the first lesson our son commented that he had learnt more in that hour than in a year at school. David really engages the student.
My daughter has now had 4 sessions with David and has found them very useful, he is easy and pleasant to communicate with, both reassuring and knowledgeable. We are very pleased to have found David and would happily recommend him to others.
Really helpful and great at explaining everything in the A level Chemistry spec.
Excellent tutor. Understands most importantly how to teach which a lot of tutors dont get. Definitely recommend. Helps me connect the dots
David was an excellent tutor, helping my son to achieve an A grade in Chemistry A-level. His lessons were well planned, his approach was supportive and encouraging, his feedback was constructive and informative. I would not hesitate to recommend him as a Chemistry tutor.
