About Mark

Professional Maths, Chemistry and Physics Tutor

Hello, I'm Mark and I have been a full time tutor for over six years, currently working with a number of students, preparing them for GCSE, AS and A2 level examinations.
I have previous experience with tutoring students for exams set by the following examination boards:

Maths
A-Level: Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and AQA
GCSE: Edexcel, OCR and AQA
IGCSE: Edexcel

Chemistry
A-Level: Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and AQA
GCSE: Edexcel, OCR and AQA
IGCSE: Edexcel

Physics
A-Level: Edexcel, OCR and AQA
GCSE: Edexcel, OCR and AQA

I have also tutored these subjects for students studying the IB, which I took myself.

When submitting a tutoring request, it would be very helpful if you could include the examination board that sets your exam, the number of hours per week that you require tuition, a preferred day and time, a preferred start date and whether there are any deadlines that you are working to. This will enable me to respond fully on first contact.

The feedback I receive from students and parents has been very positive and I am proud to have made the candidates look forward to their exams with confidence instead of apprehension.

ABOUT MYSELF

I am a University College London graduate with a Masters in Natural Sciences. I majored in Organic Chemistry with Particle Physics as my minor.

Prior to university I took the International Baccalaureate at Dartford Grammar School, reading Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics at higher level.

In my spare time I enjoy swimming and tai chi, and I like to widen my knowledge of foreign languages.

MY TUTORING APPROACH

My experience has shown that when students receive regular tuition and have ample time to practice before their exams, they can develop a true passion for the subject and perform extremely well.

Therefore, I do not put emphasis on haste, but rather on building solid foundations. When possible, I like to make tutorials interesting by not only covering the curriculum, but referring to real-life examples and making connections that go beyond what the exam boards ask for.

I am truly passionate about Maths, Chemistry and Physics, a fact tutees often mention, and I have found my attitude to be contagious, much to the advantage of the students.

Mark Frain Reference

Written by Hani A
Mark tutored my son in Year 11 for Chemistry. Mark is an excellent tutor, planned lessons and made learning fun. My son enjoyed the sessions, particularly the opportunity to go over material he had learned in class but not understood 100%. I am sure Mark is largely responsible for my son's A grade in Chemistry in the summer.

In addition Mark is polite, friendly and punctual.
Subject:
Chemistry
Outcome:
I would not hesitate to recommend Mark to other families.

Excellent Maths tutor - can't recommend highly enough!

Written by Melanie B
Mark tutored my son for several months in 2016 in order for him to resit and pass GCSE Maths. It was evident from the beginning that Mark had a remarkably exceptional level of subject knowledge. He also understood the value of patience and empathy to ensure that every session with my son delivered understanding and progression.

Maths
Outcome:
My son passed his GCSE.

Exceptional Maths & Chemistry Tutor!

Written by Helen D
Mark supported my daughter through her Maths and Chemistry A Level study. He was always thoroughly prepared for every session my daughter had with him and made sure that she understood everything they covered before moving on. He was also very encouraging and supportive throughout the stressful exam period, and made the whole process much easier with his calm, friendly manner.
He is an exceptional tutor, but more than this he is kind and caring as well. You would be lucky to have him.
