My love and interest for the various disciplines of science came out in my early teens when I was fortunate enough to have an amazing tutor who was able to pass his enthusiasm and passion for the sciences to me. Since then, I've had lots of experience in tutoring students of all different skills and abilities. Getting the most out of your exams is being able to be pushed and to develop an intuition for the discipline which can only happen by developing an appreciation for the fundamentals, not just having the ability to regurgitate information.

About my sessions

My sessions are planned around a topic that the student has in mind. From there, the fundamentals and core principles are revisited in a lecture style. Engagement is key and I often do this by asking questions relating to the concepts at hand during the tutorial. Often at the end everything is brought back and some example exam questions are asked.

My sessions are planned around a topic that the student has in mind. From there, the fundamentals and core principles are revisited in a lecture style. Engagement is key and I often do this by asking questions relating to the concepts at hand during the tutorial. Often at the end everything is brought back and some example exam questions are asked.


To achieve an A or A*, regurgitating answers or mark schemes is not enough. A-levels are a step-above GCSEs and the ability to problem solve and think about the science intuitively is what is required. I often encourage this by pushing beyond the specification. Often, exam boards neglect the core science that relates to the topics and not only will this be covered but consider general problems relating to them.


I always encourage further reading and recommend it heavily. I often spend twenty minutes after the hour of the lesson discussing questions that the students have, no matter how beyond the course it is.
