Frederick holds several degrees from Imperial College, London. Firstly, he has an M.Sc in Chemistry with Molecular Physics in which he gained an Upper Second Class Degree. After this degree, he returned to complete further studies and achieved an M.Sc. in Theory and Simulation of Materials.
Throughout his time in Higher Education Frederick became a tutor and ambassador for a programme called Spectroscopy in a Suitcase (SIAS). For SIAS, Frederick taught A level students how to use IR and NMR machines (by using SIAS’s portable NMR and IR machines taken to schools). During these interactive visits, Frederick taught students the theories behind IR and NMR spectroscopy.
Frederick was also involved with STEM OUTREACH at Imperial College, London. On this programme he mentored Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths to disadvantaged (but bright) 14-18-year-old students. Throughout his time in these outreach and educational programmes, Frederick began his official teaching career and is now a Teacher of Science at Kensington Aldridge Academy.
Frederick continues to offer classes of one-to-one private tuition and has an extraordinary wealth of experience in a range of subjects. He is a strong Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths GCSE tutor. He has also extensively tutored Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths A-level with excellent levels of success. He is well versed in a broad range of exam boards too. Frederick has tutored students from prestigious schools such as St. Paul’s School, St Paul’s Girls School, Tiffin School, Westminster and Rugby amongst others.
When Frederick was a student at sixth form, he was forced to teach himself A2 Further Mathematics as well as A2 Additional Further Mathematics. It was this experience that helped him discover how important a good teacher was! It helped him to learn new concepts in a more intuitive (and efficient) manner, which now forms the basis of his own teaching. In this way, students are able to become competent and independent learners. Frederick helps students to raise both confidence and attainment.
“Frederick is an exceptionally competent tutor. He is very reliable, always very respectable and his GCSE knowledge in all the science subjects and maths is truly excellent; my son has learnt so much from him.” Linda, Ealing
