A parent’s comment:
I specialise in Science but also can help those struggling with study, motivation and use of their time.
If you're looking for a tutor right through to exams or a shorter time, I can help.
I believe you’ll be really satisfied, so the first session is free.
Sessions are 50 minutes.
Ongoing tuition can be at our residence or with prior agreement at your place of residence.

I am good at helping with all aspects of Science, especially for those who have gaps in their knowledge which make Level 2 and 3 science subjects difficult. I have taught Senior Chemistry and Biology, but not Senior Physics.
You may struggle with work habits in class, with motivation, with studying, or with getting the results you should in assessments. I can help you tackle these areas in manageable steps so that you gain skills and confidence.
My main subject area is Science, but I have taught Maths up to Level 1. Maths can be hard for some students, and even calculators don't help if you have gaps in your knowledge. I can help if Maths is causing you concern.
Epecially for those who find aspects of the subject challenging, have gaps in background knowledge, or who do not achieve appropriate results in assessments.
Including revision techniques, effective use of time, improving focus, reducing impact of anxiety, and coping with distracting friends and surroundings.
