About me

Hello! My name is Isaac and I am a biology and Spanish graduate currently preparing to start an English teaching placement in Catalonia, Spain.

I have over two years’ experience with tutoring. I first began in sixth form where I helped GCSE students who struggled with Spanish or chemistry. However, I started tutoring formally during my time at university.

Hello! My name is Isaac and I am a biology and Spanish graduate currently preparing to start an English teaching placement in Catalonia, Spain.

I have over two years’ experience with tutoring. I first began in sixth form where I helped GCSE students who struggled with Spanish or chemistry. However, I started tutoring formally during my time at university. Both in person and online, I took on tutees and pushed them to achieve the highest marks in their GCSEs and A Levels, regardless of whether they started off on low or mid-tier grades. Most of my experience in tutoring is online and I have used this experience to prepare my own resources (worksheets, flashcards, revision guides), gather information on the best websites to use for exam preparation and also to write specification-specific lesson plans on a multitude of topics. These resources and this information are freely available to my tutees.

I graduated with a first in my degree that was primarily focused on biology. Biology is an endlessly complex science with applications in areas from everyday hobbies, such as gardening and running, to tackling the world’s largest problems like climate change. My degree also offered me the opportunity to study high-level Spanish and live in Madrid for one year. My time in the city was an amazing experience that improved my language abilities greatly whilst also allowing me to experience a new, fascinating culture.

About my sessions

My first priority with all students is to build a good rapport and identify the main barriers holding them back from reaching the higher grades. This is essential for setting achievable goals and working towards improvement in a way that is tailored to the strengths of the tutee.

My first priority with all students is to build a good rapport and identify the main barriers holding them back from reaching the higher grades. This is essential for setting achievable goals and working towards improvement in a way that is tailored to the strengths of the tutee.

Once the main barriers have been identified, engaging and enjoyable lessons can be made to overcome them and deepen the student’s understanding. By breaking a concept down into its elements, linking them with other topics and then building it all back up, a tutee can identify their own knowledge gaps and fill them with the help of an experienced guide. I have made lots of my own custom resources to help with this and I set fun tasks as homework to encourage further learning outside of school and tutorials.

Exam technique is equally vital for achieving the best grades possible. Understanding a topic is not enough if a student does not know how to explain concepts in an exam and give the appropriate answers to different questions. Tackling this involves more direct testing of the student with questions revolving around key-words and thorough explanations.

My daughter achieved A*s in both Biology and Spanish GCSE with Isaac - both subjects in which she initially had little confidence. Isaac offered an outstanding service. He has endless patience and excellent subject knowledge. He has an in depth knowledge of the specifications and ensures that all the essential top grade material is well covered and understood. And at the same time, he makes it fun! This tutor goes above and beyond. Highly recommended.

Isaac has been tutoring my son for Biology and Spanish. He has excellent skills in delivering key concepts so that students grasp these. Assessments are also made to help identify any weak areas. I found that he put my son at ease from day one yet on a professional tone. Would highly recommend.
