Primary/11+ maths/science, GCSE science, A-level chemistry

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. I have worked with learners from age four to age 20.

My two favourite tutoring success stories are a 16 year old girl who changed her IB Diploma focus to physics after a summer of GCSE physics lessons with me and a 17 year old girl who decided to stick with chemistry as an A2 topic after several months of AS chemistry lessons with me.

I worked many years as a radio-chemist in the multi-disciplinary field of positron emission tomography (PET). I have spent time in academic (university based) and industrial (pharmaceutical company based) research settings, so I can offer older students insight into future jobs in science.

I try to incorporate my own life and science experiences into my lessons to give students a real world view of science. I am happy to tailor lessons to suit the individual learner.

I look forward to meeting you and your child and to seeing your child progress academically in science and maths.

Ideally, your home (where lessons normally take place) will be located within a one-hour commute (on public transportation) of my South Ealing home.

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

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.

Couldn't find a better tutor

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!
