1:1 Private teaching online or classroom based teaching if prefered.
Lessons in Person in our purpose built classroom or on-line using Webex or Zoom.
We use Zoom or or the more secure Webex as the best way to offer more facilities and a better learning experience. We are also live using a Live Broadcast studio using TV Broadcast equipment, not a webcam so that my hands become your hands and the cameras your eyes. Its like being there.
I have in my home classroom/laboratory, all the experiments that are done at GCSE and at A Level, not just the required practicals, but practical experiments for all the learning situations, to help you learn effectively.
A Level Maths is quite a challenge and sometimes you need just a little help with understanding something, or a particular question is causing some problem. This is a drop in Maths clinic where you can work on your problems with other students or ask an expert for help. The session is for up to 2 hrs for just £10.

I am a Qualified and Experienced Chartered Teacher and have over 40 years of Teaching experience. I have taught in 11-18 schools; Been a Head of Department; Worked in a FE College for 16 years, been a University Lecturer at two Universities.
I am a Film Maker, Broadcaster and Presenter, running my own weekly Climate Podcast and hosting an extensive Science YouTube Channel. But formost I am a Scientist and Educator.
Many teachers don't like phones in their classrooms. Some are afraid their lesson could be recorded. I like my students to use their mobile phones in the lab. They record all my experiments. The good and the bad. My students Record the experiments, they take photos of the set ups.
I need a much better water clock to do this experiment Rule of odds - Todays job. A cart is rolled down the track. As it passes a bell it rings the bell. We try and make the time between each bell ring the same.
Flame Tests are one of my favourite topics. Explaining the colours of fireworks to year 8 in an online lesson. Crimson Lithium
Apple Green Barium
Blue Green Copper
Its been a busy week of covering DNA replication and Protein synthesis, my models have been duplicated, copied and translated almost as many times as a real cell this week
Physics is all about learning about electrostatics. Learning about like charges repel and unlike charges attract is such a keystone fundamental idea.
Blend a leaf of red cabbage with 100 ml distilled water. Filter (cheese cloth recommended). The resulting solution displays pretty much a full range of colours from pH 1 to14. Some people recommend boiling the cabbage but it is not necessary
Mixing the same solution using different methods, by hand, using a magnetic stirrer and a vortex mixer. Which is best ? I find out.
Learning how to use a pipette and get the meniscus at the correct level. This certainly takes some practice
Blend a leaf of red cabbage with 100 ml distilled water. Filter (cheese cloth recommended). Determining the Molecular weight of a volatile substance using the steam generator. Problem here is making the students wait until it is hot enough. A known amount of a volatile liquid is injected into the gas syringe at 100C. The volatile liquid evaporates and turns to gas and the volume is measured resulting solution displays pretty much a full range of colours from pH 1 to14. Some people recommend boiling the cabbage but it is not necessary
