Experience
Experience:

I am a full-time Science tutor and have a First class degree in Pharmacology from Kings College London and a PhD from the University of Oxford.

My general curiosity in Biology and nature has always helped motivate me in my studies and I hope that through tutoring I can inspire and transfer my enthusiasm for science to my students.

Due to the nature of my educational background, I have an excellent understanding of the Science subjects and I am adept in explaining complex concepts and ideas in a more understandable and manageable way.

I am a friendly, patient and enthusiastic science tutor who has over 8 years of experience in tutoring, mentoring and teaching science to those from the ages of 11 to PhD level. I provide online tuition and have been teaching science at GCSE, iGCSE, A level and university level and have worked with a variety of pupils with various abilities, learning styles, strengths and weaknesses.

I have an excellent knowledge and experience of the current curriculum of all major exam boards (AQA, Cambridge, Edexcel and OCR) and teach both Combined and Triple iGCSE Sciences.

I have taught many individuals intensively for their GCSE and A-levels in the run up to exams.

I also have extensive experience with university students of all academic levels and abilities as well as have a good working knowledge and experience of university marking and assessment systems. I offer guidance to undergraduate assignments specifically helping and advising on laboratory-based and library-based dissertations; evaluating scientific data as well as writing reports / essays.

Approach
Approach:

I provide a personalised tuition programme either online or in the tutee's home and can also provide home schooling/ education during the day.

The tuition sessions are very structured and tailored to the needs and learning style of the student, focusing on any weaknesses. These needs are usually pinpointed within the first meeting and I tailor all sessions to the individual specific exam board. I apply a variety of different teaching techniques and styles that I have found to be effective in order to make studying enjoyable, interesting as well as beneficial, helping students to reach and excel to their full potential.

My strategy in teaching addresses multiple areas to greatly benefit student's approach to learning which helps build their confidence. These include:

- Help students to actually understand concepts and topics (rather than simply memorising facts)

- Support with exam techniques, specific exam terminology and definitions that are commonly asked

- Extensive exposure to actual exam board specific questions (I have an extensive array of relevant up-to-date educational and past exam papers, split by topic, for all subjects)

- Provide support with revision techniques and advice to self learn and self motivate

- Assist with composing an effective weekly study schedule tailored and based around the student's extra-curricular activities

- Provide comprehensive feedback after each lesson on student's progress, homework results and areas to improve If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me

Dr Lui is a kind, patient, supportive and highly professional tutor. I have met many, many tutors over a five-year period seeking help to support my son and Dr Lui stands out as the best one I have ever employed. His lessons are well planned, enjoyable, interesting and relaxed. Dr Lui struck up an instantaneous rapport with my son, who lacked confidence and motivation towards his science GCSE. He not only makes the subject he teaches interesting, he also inspires and motivates my son to do well. Dr Lui was very clear with his explanation and his pace of teaching depends on whether a certain area of a topic was understood or not. He prepared clear Powerpoints for each session followed by sending exam homework that supports the learning and assesses my son’s understanding and exam techniques. He would then go through the homework with my son and explains where mistakes were made and how to improve. As a result of 10 months of very engaging and interactive online lessons with Dr Lui, my son went from predicted grades of 6s to achieving three 9s for his Triples Sciences for this summer’s GCSE exams. I would highly recommend Dr Lui to any students lacking confidence, understanding and motivation.

Thanks to Stephen, Sciences are finally making some sense and are actually enjoyable for my son ! After multiple unsuccessful interviews with local tutors, we were lucky enough to come across Stephen and honestly he doesn't disappoint. My son had an immediate liking to Stephen and his personality, and directly after the initial interview/meeting we knew he was the man for us to assist our son in his study and preparation for the upcoming exams. After the first lesson, being an initial discussion and review with my son of his current knowledge, Stephen was able to better understand the weaker topics vs those he had more strength in knowledge on and commenced with the weaker core topics first. He reviewed the entire exam syllabus of core topics and secondary topics, with emphasis on those core topics and moving onto the secondary. Stephen moves through onto the next topic, only once my son has a good grasp of the current topic being learnt. Over the past lessons with Stephen, it has become very clear what a huge learning gap there is for us between a classroom teaching style vs a one on one private lesson, and I only wish that we had have sourced him sooner. Although a 2-hour lesson appeared daunting at the time, Stephen has managed to keep my son fully engaged for each of the lessons, regardless of the topic. After each lesson my son is given exam based homework, which reiterates the topics and subject matters covered within the lesson, to be completed prior to the following lesson. The homework is marked and then discussed during the next scheduled lesson, in such a way that he encourages my son to answer and think without just simply providing him the answers. They review the hits and misses and discuss any misunderstandings from each question. Reinforcing the previous works learning, has really assisted with my sons retained knowledge, having that repeat-repeat type of method has been of great benefit. Stephen updates me with my sons progress after every single lesson in a detailed manner, either online or through mail. His knowledge, his passion and his delivery to my son’s lessons and homework has surpassed my expectation. The commitment, support and persistence of Stephen hasn’t faulted over the many lessons already completed. Nor has never judged my son for the level (grade) at which he is currently achieving, he only encourages him more to strive and to achieve in a positive manner, as if my son was his only student and his only focus. Overall, regardless of the outcome of the exams, the additional knowledge and confidence that Stephen has instilled in my son heading into the iGCSE exams, has had such a positive effect, it is invaluable. I highly recommend Stephen to any level of student studying Sciences.

We would rate him 5 stars!! A FANTASTIC TUTOR!! Dr Stephen has been tutoring my son for iGCSE Triple Science for the last few months and I can honestly say that my son’s confidence level has increased several-fold. Before we started with Dr Stephen, my son was achieving 3s and 4s. However after a few months of Dr Stephen’s support, care and dedication, his grades have shot up to grades 7s and 8s. Already, his teachers are impressed with his remarkable progress and have predicted a high grade for him. I have been impressed with Dr Stephen`s professionalism, he is very competent in his teaching skills, methods and knowledge and this has positively rubbed on my son. Dr Stephen has been very focused with my son on exam techniques and skills to ensure he can score highly in any setting. I am very comfortable recommending Dr Stephen to any student/parent and he is worth every penny.
