We are founded and fronted by a qualified physicist and secondary science teacher. More information on Huw (Welsh spelling of the English name Hugh) can be found below.
I am a qualified secondary physics teacher, holding a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and
Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I gained these qualifications after having completed a Graduate Training
Programme (GTP) in the academic year 2012-2013. I completed a BSc Physics with Astronomy degree at the
University of Nottingham in 2011. I have qualifications in all sciences and maths at GCSE and A-Level.
I have taught science since 2011, to all year groups from 7-13, following these exam boards and specifications:
at GCSE, AQA Science, Edexcel IGCSE Science, OCR 21st Century Science and OCR Gateway Science
specifications (all including higher tier and triple/trilogy content); at A-Level, AQA Physics, Edexcel Physics
and OCR Physics A. I have also taught the physics International Baccalaureate diploma and BTEC Level 2 and Level 3 Applied Science. I have assessed examinations for the OCR, Edexcel and WJEC boards. I have supported students preparing for “physics aptitude tests” as part of the entry processes for select universities.
H. Arrowsmith Tuition
In 2016, I set up my own tuition company and currently operate this full-time. Tuition has an advantage over teaching in that it enables me to better help students on an individual basis. This level of help is often difficult to achieve in a classroom environment, which can be very frustrating for both the teacher and student. Tuition also allows me control over my working hours, which in turn gives greater flexibility in planning quality lessons for students.
*Please note that owing to the nature of my work, it can often be difficult for me to take telephone calls. With this in mind, please use e-mail as a point of contact in the first instance if at all possible.
