Specialist Online GCSE Maths & Science Tutor
Hi there, I’m Ollie, a secondary school Science and Maths teacher. After studying Biology at Oxford University, my love for learning quickly became a passion for teaching. With a PGCE, two years of teaching and 4 years of tutoring under my belt, I have a good understanding of how daunting exams can seem and how best to tackle them.
My students and I work together on clear, step by step explanations to the problems on their syllabus. We never move on before feeling 100% confident that everything is understood. We then take the time to repeat and practice the problems with challenging variations, until solving them becomes second nature. I expect a lot from my students, pushing them to think hard in lessons and work diligently in-between. They do not fail to rise to the challenge!
I currently tutor GCSE Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology alongside A-level Biology. If you have any questions please get in touch, I’d be happy to help.
Experience, Maths & Science Teacher
After studying Biology at Oxford University, with a particular focus on Mathematical modelling, I jumped at the opportunity to become a secondary school Science and Maths teacher through the Teach First program. For the past two years, I have been teaching these subjects full time to classes ranging from year 7 to year 11 as well as Biology to year 12 and 13, in a state school in south-east London. I have seen two classes of year 11s through their GCSEs and two classes of year 13s through their A-levels with many successes.
Teaching has drastically improved my ability to assess my learner’s weaknesses, plan great explanations and design purposeful practice worksheets. I have also gained an intimate knowledge of the GCSE and A-level exams through AQA conferences, examiner training and marking hundreds of mocks.
I completed my PGDE in 2019 with the Institute of Education at UCL. This got me thinking academically about how to maximise learning and helped shape the teacher I am today.
My passion for learning and sharing knowledge goes back to my school days, where I spent much of my GCSE study leave in school, helping friends get their heads around the seemingly complex Maths and Science that they had not understood in lessons. (I was a bit of a nerd!). The thrill I got from watching the ‘penny drop’ for those around me as I re-explained a difficult concept is one that I still pursue to this day in my teaching career.
I have been tutoring students in Maths and Science alongside my studies and career for the past four years. I particularly enjoy teaching students one on one since the explanations and work can be tailored to precisely meet the student’s needs. Progress is fast, students feel satisfied and a strong mentor-mentee relationship is formed.
Over the course of several years, I have invested time and energy in developing the online tutoring experience I provide. With a virtual whiteboard for written explanations, an HD webcam and easy document sharing, the experience is just as good, if not better, than face to face tutoring.
