WHAT I TEACH:
HOW I TEACH:
I assess what is needed free of charge (by asking the student for an annotated copy of their specification/syllabus) and make an individual study plan before we start.
I give, and explain to the student in each tutorial, board-specific notes based on four-colour annotated diagrams. These are e-mailed in advance for the student to print-off and have in front of them and are simultaneously available on my electronic interactive whiteboard during the tutorial.
I send the student a CD of all the past papers and mark schemes for their board. The student can mark the papers themselves or send them to me for marking.
For full-time students the procedure is the same except that I make no assumptions about prior knowledge and work methodically through the syllabus.
I will work with any method that suits the student. However I insist that we always work in a methodical fashion. The best students learn biology but, more importantly, they learn how to study.
WHO I TEACH:
Students (including mature students) studying full-time with me 'from scratch'. An A-level can normally be completed in under 90 hours in just one year.
Students retaking examinations. Students taking intensive revision courses.
WHERE I TEACH:
I hear a lot of uninformed objections to online tuition from people who have not tried it (I offer a free trial tutorial for this reason). 95% of people who try online tuition agree that it is as good as, or better than, face-to-face tuition. If you do not believe me then just look at the huge number of testimonials on my online biology tuition website .
