Former GCSE Examiner - loads of experience and advice

I have 30 years experience as a full time GCSE Science teacher, private tutor and GCSE Examiner - I know the subject and where candidates often lose marks.
I can tutor in your home or online, for 1 hour to more.

My many years experience help me to explain the content in a way that is easier to understand for those who feel a bit lost - the content can be a bit overwhelming and confusing. Spending time one-to-one at the student's pace makes such a difference to understanding and confidence.
More able students benefit from a faster pace, more challenging tasks, focused on harder exam questions etc.

Everyone is different and so the tuition sessions will adapt and change to suit the individual, complement what is done in school, identifying and strengthening weaknesses etc.

As well as covering the subject content I also work on exam and revision skills - important for improving grades, and helpful for other subjects and useful skill for the future. I have helped students gain top grades, many of them initially not keen on science as a subject, preferring other subjects - that's fine, as long you are prepared to put in a fair effort.

I have experience of all the main exam boards and use the latest text books for that specific exam board, not just a general science book. This does make a significant difference as they do vary on content and style.

My experience as a GCSE Examiner made me so aware of how many candidates who seemed to know a lot of science failed to get good marks due to poor exam technique. Even now this is often not emphasised and practiced enough, due to lack of time in school. In tuition sessions we can work on this much more, talking over why marks are lost, what to look for in the questions etc - this takes time and practice.

Fantastic and friendly tutor for lifelong learning techniques and immediate exams.

I had been out of education for 7 years when I sought out Michael’s services as a tutor. I needed a higher grade for my science GCSE before I could further my career and it had been holding me back for a while now.

Michael was fantastic at reintroducing me into a comfortable learning environment, he was easy to contact and talk to, adapted to my learning style quickly and gave me lots of tips for studying at home.

I couldn't be more pleased with the results and the life lessons I now have to help me study in the future.

Excellent tutor in GCSE Physics Chemistry and Biology

Michael is a kind, knowledgeable, and a talented teacher who has completely and positively transformed my son's attitude to and ability in science. Michael also worked as an examiner and as such his understanding of exactly what is required to answer exam questions fully and accurately is absolutely vital. My son said that learning about science with Michael was great as he made it so interesting and also relevant . He explained things very clearly and was always encouraging. My son looked forward to his tutorials and it is worth starting early and overcoming any problems, well before exams. Continuing with Michael for revision was extremely useful. I can absolutely and thoroughly recommend him as an exceptional tutor.

Professional, Engaging Tutor

Can highly recommend Michael. Our son is taking triple Science G.C.S.E and describes Michael as "professional and gets to the point of teaching Science quickly". Michael is patient, friendly, and having been an examiner and school teacher clearly knows his subject, what the exam expectations are and current updates in various exam board syllabus.

EXCELLENT TUTOR WITH BEST RESULTS GUARANTEED!

My son was doing the dual award, achieving grades like Cs and Bs. However, after having Michael to tutor him and advise him on studying and learning techniques, he achieved all A* in science, and is in all the top sets for A level. Michael now is tutoring my other son, and I'm confident he's in safe hands, and will achieve best grades!!!
