Hello, I’m John, a PhD-qualified biologist and mathematician. I offer friendly one-to-one tutoring in science and mathematics, specializing in online A-level biology tutoring. We also offer exam masterclasses for small groups.
My wife, Sammy, offers modern foreign languages tutoring in French, Spanish, German and Italian. She is a former head of Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) at a secondary school.
Between us, we have hundreds of hours’ tutoring experience, and cater for ages from GCSE/IGCSE and A-level, through to university students, post-graduates and adult learners. We cater for all UK exam boards, including AQA, Edexcel and OCR.
We also have extensive experience of home-schooling (home education). We also help students who are on the autistic spectrum (ASD/ASC), and those with special educational needs (SEND). In many cases we work alongside schools and colleges.
Some of our recent tutees have attended: The Liverpool Blue Coat School (I am a former pupil), Calderstones School, Life Sciences UTC, Wirral Grammar School, St Peter’s York, Eton College, Guernsey Ladies College, Stockholm International School, GEMS Wellington International School (Dubai). We welcome online students from all over the world.
Some of our students have gone on to: The University of Oxford (Biomedical Sciences), The University of Cambridge (Biochemistry), UCL (Medicine), The University of Manchester (Biology and Maths), The University of Liverpool (Biological Sciences).
Boosting confidence always comes first
We believe that boosting confidence and reducing stress and anxiety is the first step towards tackling any tricky concept. John is also a professionally-qualified coach supporting student wellbeing and positive mental health.
We offer online and one-to-one tutoring from our home in Woolton village, Liverpool. Full CRB (DBS) checks are available to view on request. We also run online small group sessions in GCSE maths and A-level biology, usually on weekends. Normally, we invite new students (and their families) for a (free) chat lasting 10-15 minutes before the first session.
We founded Woolton Tutors in 2014 – we’re now proud to have online tutees from the UK and Guernsey and international students in Spain, China and the USA. In 2022 we launched our popular online biology tutoring internationally. We’re delighted to share our guest article for The Parents Guide to on “online tutoring for your child“.
We are very proud of our relationships with our students and their families. Some of their feedback can be found here. We hope we go the extra mile for our students – making sure they feel relaxed and prepared for whatever their next step may be. Whether you are local, or an expat student in Dubai, we aim to support you and your studies.
