I tutor GCSE Science (in whichever format you are studying it – double or triple – and whichever specification you are studying) and A-level Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
I am also happy to tutor younger students, availability permitting.
My fee is £45 per hour for individual sessions at GCSE level, and £50 per hour for individual sessions at A-level, with a standard tutoring session lasting 1 hour.
I normally tutor from my home in Kidlington, however there may be circumstances where I am able to travel to you, time permitting – set up an initial meeting with me and we can discuss your needs and take it from there.
I also offer discounted rates (per head) for revision sessions with 2-3 students, so if you wish you can get together with a friend and save some money having tutoring together. (This can be a really good plan – sharing ideas and having someone to discuss things with is a good way to get the most out of your learning, especially if you plan to go over what has been covered in each tutoring session as a group afterwards.) Please do feel free to discuss this with me at our initial meeting.
Intensive Revision, Catch-Up, or Refresher Sessions
Sometimes you might want a bit of intensive extra help – either as one of my regular tutees or as a one off. The most common reason for this is pre-exam revision, either before final exams or school-set mock exams, however maybe you’ve missed a bit of school and need to catch up, or need a refresher after a break (particularly at the end of the summer, before going back in September).
I offer extended sessions during both school holiday time and term time, availability permitting. Sessions are 2 or 3.5 hours (either morning or afternoon, including a break in the middle), and can be tailored to your needs. A revision session, for example, might begin with a recap of core information, then look at particular areas which you have identified as finding challenging, before moving on to exam technique.
Half-day sessions are charged at £90 for 2 hours or £135 for 3.5 hours at GCSE level, and £100 for 2 hours or £150 for 3.5 hours at A-level (3.5 hour sessions include a break in the middle). As with regular tutoring, discounted rates (per head) are available for small groups of 2-3 students.
The increased demand from the new GCSE Science specifications includes some very technical content, as well as the replacement of the ‘coursework’ component with exam-assessed practicals. I am happy to work with small classes of home-schooled students (up to 10 students) – please get in touch to discuss the needs of your group.
Rates for home-schooling groups will depend on the individual needs of the group, and will be discussed as part of your initial meeting.
