Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes. I can also provide references upon request.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I use Skype and FaceTime for online tutoring. Also screen sharing with Skype allows me to give slideshows and show diagrams with powerpoint and keynote.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
Tell me about some of your current students.
An 11 year old student of mine was underperforming in her sciences so we have weekly lesson to boost her confidence and motivation. At first I found she had little interest in working on science but over the past few months I have worked hard to develop her enthusiasm for the subject and her grades are inching up.

I have a 14 year old student preparing to enter the British education system, my job is to bring him up to speed in maths and the sciences IGCSE. Our lessons take place over Skype, I find this can be a highly effective method of teaching especially for encouraging students to take responsibility for their own notes and research.

A 12 year old student of mine found that he fell behind in maths so we are doing weekly lessons in-person to improve his understanding and exam technique. His progress is very encouraging, especieally the improvement in the presentation of his work.

A GCSE student of mine is having weekly Skype lessons so we can explore more advanced topics in maths and science. We frequently find ourselves working on A-Level content or otherwise interesting material which is not on the syllabus.
Do you have a personal message for students?
In physics, understand units. In maths, practise. It is normal to find these subjects hard. They are. But they also make sense; the more time you can devote to them the more surprised you will be by their elegance and your ability.
