meet our tutors at tutor doctor witney
Hi, I'm Sebastian. My specialist subjects are maths and physics. I have a doctorate in theoretical
physics (cosmology) from the University of Oxford and have also studied
in Sweden, Spain and the USA.
My favourite part of being a tutor is seeing my students grow in confidence, whether we are getting the foundations in place for GCSE or raising the game at graduate level.
Hi, I'm Sally. My specialist subject is English Language focusing specifically on the learning challenges faced by children with autism and dyslexia.
I became a tutor when I realised how difficult it is within a class of thirty children to successfully reach individuals with specific learning difficulties. The advantages of working one to one are immeasurable, reaping rewards for both student and tutor.
One of my proudest, most challenging and rewarding tutoring moments has been with Alfie. He was just beginning Year 8 when we first met and at a good school but, due to autism, his mum was concerned about his progress. I gave him weekly tutoring in English up to Year 11, building his confidence and key learning skills. He exceeded our expectations with his excellent GCSE results in ten subjects including A grades for both English Language and Literature and then proceeded to pass three ‘A’ levels including English. He is now in his second year at Sheffield University studying for a Law degree.
My favourite book is: ‘How to Grow Your own Poem’ by Kate Clanchy. It is a constant companion alongside my work with young people from the age of six to sixteen.
Hi, I'm Ivan. I decided to become a teacher because I love helping young people develop, and enjoy teaching and conveying concepts. My specialist subject is Geography, and I teach through interactive presentations. My one piece of advice for success in education is to always be focused.
My favourite book is The Bible, and my favourite film is The Sound of Music.
Hi, I'm Anaya. My specialist subjects are French and English Literature/Language of all
levels, but also Geography up to GCSE.
I believe in using a holistic approach to achieve the best results from a student; changing their perspective of learning is the most important factor of teaching. I have experience working with Dyslexic and ADHD students.
I decided to become a tutor because I love cultivating beneficial relationships with people - being able to help them is a bonus which overwhelms me with pride!
Hi, I'm Mark. I can offer a wide range of subjects up to degree level. I became a tutor
because I love enabling students to reach their potential, and I love
to see my pupils grow, achieve, and soar!
I enjoy horse riding, racing, conservation, and breeding foreign birds.
I truly believe that everyone can succeed!
I specialise in most subjects at primary school level, particularly supporting
children with Autism, ADHD and other additional needs.
I became a tutor because I love seeing children grow in confidence. As a tutor I get to see this progress through strong and trusting relationships.
I love exploring nature and spending time outdoors, whatever the weather. I am currently making my way through walking all 214 of the Wainwright peaks in the Lake District!
I specialise in Maths and Physics up to GCSE level. They are both my favourite subjects to teach. Maths and Physics tend to go hand in hand, even during a Physics lesson we could be learning some maths. I also enjoy when my students tell me how well they are doing at school and also when their exams go well. I really like how there's a lot of flexibility, and I can work from home and plan the lessons around my other part time job. This fits in well with my already busy schedule.
