About Thomas

AVAILABLE SLOTS FOR GCSE SCIENCE LESSONS

I HAVE TIME SLOTS AVAILABLE FOR REGULAR WEEKLY GCSE SCIENCE (PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, BIOLOGY) LESSONS: MONDAY AFTERNOON AND THURSDAY AFTERNOON.
ALSO TWICE MONTHLY SLOT FOR GCSE SCIENCE AVAILABLE: SECOND AND FOURTH FRIDAYS OF THE MONTH.
My main tutoring areas are GCSE Science and Primary Maths. I also have increasing experience in preparing children for the 11+ (Maths) and 13+ (Science) entrance exams, two tutoring areas I really enjoy. I have worked with learners from age three to age 23.
I am working three days per week as a consultant for the pharmaceutical industry, but I dedicate four afternoons to tutoring.
Ideally, your home (where lessons normally take place) will be located within a one-hour commute (on public transportation) of my South Ealing home. (Even better if I can walk it!)

Thomas has experience in teaching science at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. He also worked with post 16 students. Thomas had a professional approach throughout his time teaching here and used his lesson planning skills to engage students and enhance their learning. He used assessment strategies regularly and used these to inform his planning for future lessons. He communicated well with parents as well as other staff members and is a team player. He is punctual and dedicated to teaching.

He was able to work well with small groups of students and focus his teaching on the needs of these students.

Easy to work with

My daughter needed preparation to enter the IB Diploma program, and we contacted Thomas.

He contacted the school and found out where she needed to be and has worked to get her there before school starts.
My daughter looks forward to the tutoring sessions.

He has encouraged her love of science and has been flexible on time/dates, as well as showing up on time when arrangements have been made.

Glad to have found him.

Excellent tutor

Written by Ingrid B
Tom has been teaching my daughter KS3 science and my son GCSE level Chemistry, Physics and Biology. Tom is an excellent tutor and my children have gained a great deal from his input. He is patient and clearly able to relate well to young people, a skill that not all tutors have in my experience. Tom is always well prepared and strives to make his lessons interesting. I am very grateful for all that he has done for my children.
Subject:
Biology (GCSE)

Tom is still tutoring my children.

Couldn't find a better tutor

Written by Andreea P
Tom is the tutor we were looking for: knowledgeable, patient, engaged, friendly and trustworthy. My son really enjoys his lessons and is always looking for his next class. He became more confident in math and science and got more focused while working. Tom is very hands on and never leaves without finishing his lesson even if longer than an hour. We strongly recommend Tom!
