Teaching History

Zane has been teaching physics and maths since 1988. He first taught for one year at the Radcliffe School in Milton Keynes before moving back to Wales to take a job at Brynmawr School. When Brynmawr School went grant maintained in 1992 he moved to Nantyglo Comprehensive, taking over as Head of Physics there and eventually as Head of Science. When Nantyglo was closed in 2010 Zane moved back to Brynmawr School for another three years before taking a voluntary redundancy.

In August 2013 Zane was offered a part time job at Crosskeys teaching A level physics, BTEC Applied Science and GCSE maths. Just after Christmas that year he was offered a full time job there. On the retirement of his colleague, Steve Hughes, at the end of 2014, Zane has been the only physics lecturer at Crosskeys while continuing to deliver some units of the BTEC Applied Science course.

Zane has been providing Maths tutoring to my son this year and my son had got on really well with him. He has helped Ben greatly and his Maths has improved throughout. We lead hectic lifestyles and Zane had lots of patience fitting us in and keeping in regular contact!

Zane is currently helping my son with GCSE physics. Zane is very efficient in helping to arrange sessions and change times at the last minute to fit in with timetables. My son says he is amazing and he explains things well and is kind.

Zane has been supporting my Son to prepare for his Maths GCSE exam since March. My Son is much more confident now, I wish I had contacted him sooner! My Son says that Zane is very calm and supportive and takes time to go through things that he might not understand. From a parent point of view, Zane is very organised and he has been very accommodating changing his days/times to suit our busy family life. Zane is also currently supporting my Son with some Physics GCSE revision. We are so very grateful and I would recommend Zane 100%.

Our son began tuition with Zane towards the end of last year to support him with his A level Physics. He feels his confidence, knowledge and understanding of the subject has increased considerably in a relatively short space of time and is already seeing improvements in his regular classroom tests. Our son finds Zane to be a very approachable and patient person, with the ability to clearly explain the most complex aspects of the subject. We would certainly recommend Zane’s Physics tuition as it’s definitely made a difference to our son.

"Zane has been an excellent maths tutor for my daughter. He is patient, knowledgeable, and explains concepts in a clear and engaging way. My daughter's confidence and skills in maths have improved significantly under his guidance. We are very grateful for his help and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great maths tutor."

Our son started tuition with Zane in September to support him through his GCSE exam this summer. Since starting tuition in Sept our son has gone from being bottom of the class to achieving an A grade in his mock. Zane is very patient and our son loves attending his lessons. I would highly recommend him as a Physics tutor.

We sent our son for tuition with Zane to increase his knowledge and understanding of Physics for his forthcoming GCSE’ exam this summer .
Zane was very flexible with his timings , articulate , understanding , sensitive and patient .
My son’s understanding of physics increased in a matter of a short few lessons and we highly recommend Zane to further your child’s education .

Zane has been tutoring my son ahead of A level Physics (AQA). Though it has only been a few months I have seen a huge change in my son's confidence and I believe that Zane will have made a huge contribution to my sons grade. My son tried 2 other tutors before which he didn't get on with but he wanted to continue with Zane. His feedback is that Zane is good at explaining concepts and that he has a good set-up; when they worked through exam papers together he could see the paper and the workings on one screen. I would recommend Zane to anyone looking for help with A level Physics.

Zane has been supporting my daughter with her mathematics in her GCSE’s. Zane has helped build my daughter’s confidence and has encouraged her to want to learn. Zane was reliable and very flexible in teaching in person or teaching on line. My daughter describes Zane as he is ‘’very patient and he always remains calm’’. I would highly recommend Zane as a tutor.
