About Donald

I am an experienced science teacher (KS3-KS5) and examiner (currently teaching in a high performing school – Greater Manchester) who has taught in both the independent and public education sector over the last seven years within the UK. I have been tutoring all three sciences for the past three years at GCSE and IGCSE level for most of the examination boards (AQA, EDEXCEL). My strong postdoctoral research experience helps me to communicate effectively and clearly in my teaching using real world examples. My track record of outstanding results supports my ability to pinpoint issues and create effective programmes (focusing on tricky topics, for example) to enable my students to make rapid progress in tandem with my examining experience. Many of my students go on to study science at A level and enter careers in Engineering, Medicine, and Dentistry. I am passionate about all the subjects I teach, and I truly believe that I can unlock the potential in my students through extensive support, a positive approach and a strong and deep understanding of the science curriculum. 

Tutoring Style

First and foremost, I am a friendly and approachable tutor and I use real world concrete examples and models to make more abstract concepts accessible to my students. My background as a postdoctoral research scientist, experienced qualified teacher, and examiner, allows me to explain ideas clearly bringing the subject to life and creating wonder and enjoyment of each of the three sciences. I use a variety of interactive methods to identify gaps in understanding and to enhance mastery of key ideas. I also understand the value of using a variety of new situations to support independent practice and embed problem solving skills.
