In Sean’s own words, “I am a 29 year old Chemistry Master’s Graduate of St Hugh’s College, Oxford University. Before studying at Oxford, I was educated at Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital School in Bristol, where I received 9A*s at GCSE and A’s in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics at A level.
I currently freelance as a tutor, predominantly in Science and Mathematics, and have been doing this full time in London for over 5 years now. I predominately teach students at GCSE and A level and in the Summer 2017 exams my students received 17A*s and 6As in the 23 exams which I prepared them for. I have also successfully prepared several students for 11+ and 13+ entrance exams for UK schools including Westminster and Harrow.
I enjoy sharing my knowledge of these subjects and passing on my passion and enthusiasm for academia to as many students as possible. My other main passion is film and I run my own film production company. Through this company I produce dramatic British film and Science for television.
My passion for tutoring has grown year after year since I started teaching in 2011. I believe that one-on-one tuition gives students the perfect opportunity to ask questions which would perhaps not be thoroughly answered in a class environment and I often find that through this process my students develop a real passion for subjects which they previously didn’t necessarily enjoy.
Each student learns in a different way and I use my time with each student to find what works best for them in order to allow them to reach their maximum potential. I usually find that confidence is key and allowing my students to learn new and effective ways of studying, helps them to do well in all future studies, not only in their upcoming exams.”
Sean taught IGCSE Chemistry, Physics and Maths to my son, who sat his exams in May. He has obtained high A* in all 3 subjects, and we are delighted. Sean was always very reliable and worked steadily through the syllabuses, leaving ample time for revision. We would recommend him as a tutor.”
“Sean tutored my son, Thomas, for several months helping him prepare for his A2 Chemistry exams. During that time he was always reliable and well prepared for their lessons. Thomas found Sean’s method of teaching extremely helpful and he certainly boosted his confidence in tackling the subject. Sean has an easy, calm way about him and I would not hesitate to recommend him as a tutor.”
