What kind of experience do you have?
I have 19 years teaching experience in schools and 21 years of tuition experience. I have worked both in a state school in the UK and in a top international school in the Middle East. Our Chemistry department was extremely successful and 65% of students received a top grade (A star) in the Cambridge IGCSE examinations. As a tutor, I have taught many students from different schools and have a reputation for helping students achieve a top grade.

I have now been tutoring online 'face to face' for 4 year and I am extremely pleased at how successful it has been. By choosing online tuition, students have automatically opened the doors to an enormous range of tutors and therefore can choose someone, like myself, who is highly experienced and has thoroughly prepared lessons which are tailored to their exam board.

These have been used to teach and tutor hundreds of students over the years, with extremely good results, and have earned me my reputation as an excellent tutor who can get students top grades.
