Information about Michael

I have good availability Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm (UK times). I am now fully booked evenings and weekends.

I have 30 years experience as a science teacher and GCSE Examiner, helping to finalise the mark scheme and marking the GCSE papers. This has helped me to understand the importance of good exam technique and to make pupils aware of how easily marks are lost, even by able pupils, simply through not understanding the way exam questions work, or what the examiner is expecting. I am convinced that good exam technique makes a significant difference.

I tutor one-to-one in your home or online (which is cheaper for you).

I am experienced in tutoring pupils for AQA, Edecel and OCR exam boards.

There are many people who teach science, I teach pupils. I don`t just impart knowledge, I`m interested in seeing the reaction of the pupil. Have they understood it? Or are they still not sure? They may say they understand, but that isn`t always accurate. Moving on too quickly is not helpful and will leave them confused and disheartened, the last thing you want. Equally, you don`t want the pace to be too easy or too slow.

I also know how important it is for pupils to learn how to learn - vital skills that needs training and development, but which equip them for life.

Availability: I have good availability Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm (UK times). I am now fully booked evenings and weekends.

Michael has been tutoring my son in Science (year 10) and it has been a very positive experience. My son has already gained a much better understanding of key concepts since seeing Michael; he has helped him with exam and revision techniques and has made the subject much more interesting for him, as well as quickly identifying the areas of weakness. My son has become more enthusiastic about the subject and looks forward to the sessions with Michael.

He came twice and I gave him feedback. After he booked a lesson and he did not attend. I emailed and messaged him but he didn`t reply back.

Tutors Response :

When I arrived to tutor the first time I had to telephone as I couldn`t find anywhere to park - I then discovered all parking on the estate and surrounding roads are residents only. I was assured I would be given a visitors parking permit next time, but instead on my second visit I was told to park illegally on the estate. I cannot risk my car being clamped, towed away or paying a fine. I did explain that I would not be able to come again because of this, but Lydia did not accept my reasons and persisted in asking.
I do have to be able to park my car legally without risk of a fine, clamping or being removed.

We have found Michael to be punctual, quick to respond to messages and flexible re tutoring times. He seems very knowledgeable on content matter and exam technique. My daughter has benefited from having sessions with him and after initially requesting one to one biology sessions she also went on to have physics sessions. We are happy to recommend Michael.
