John's Tutoring Experience:


Throughout the past few years, John has been offering one-on-one tutoring and hosting weekly tutoring workshops for Chemistry and Biology.

In January this year, he also hosted Headstart Courses for these subjects, where one student, Isabella, wrote:

“Absolutely loved John’s teaching style, loved the way that I was able to make connections and understand the content without having to memorise anything.”

John work’s closely with his students in mentoring them in developing effective and efficient science-backed study techniques which allow them to experience significant improvements in their test/exam and assignment grades.
