My name is Mark Cortacans and I was educated at St Anselm’s in Tooting where I was considered a Child Maths Prodigy. I then went to St Joseph’s College in Beulah Hill where I received school awards for best Science and best A Level results.
I followed this up with an upper second class honours degree in Chemistry from Imperial College where I also became an associate of the Royal College of Science. I then carried out extensive research and published works on the structure of haemoglobin and the uses of certain platinum and palladium catalysts and spent some time doing industrial chemical research for BP.
I have tutored in many private colleges and schools and have an extensive one to one tutoring experience in Maths and Science from Key Stages 1 to 4 right up to A Level and in some cases to undergraduate level. I have also tutored pupils for 11+ and 13+ common entrance exams for the following schools; Whitgift, Trinity, Wilson Wallington, Eaton and Westminster.
Recently I have been working with an English teacher who is also an examiner and now also teach English up to GCSE covering all the main core texts. Although I have tutored many gifted pupils who have gone on to do great things I also work with pupils with special needs which, includes children with ADHD, OCD, Aspergers Syndrome and high to low functioning autism so I am also patient and understanding with those that find the subject difficult.
