Biology Tuition in Peterhead

My name is Alexandra and I am from Dundee but now living in the Peterhead area. I am extremely outgoing, organised and enthusiastic. I am currently teaching Biology and Science in a secondary school in Peterhead.

I am PVG scheme registered.

Tutoring Experience

I have taught in three secondary schools across Perth and Kinross, Dundee and Aberdeenshire. I am experienced in teaching Biology from National 4 to Advanced Higher level.

I am also presently teaching Higher Human Biology.

I am confident in delivering the current CfE Biology courses, including assignments and projects.

I have four years experience in private tuition.

Tutoring Approach

I prefer to tutor from the learner's home, with a maximum traveling distance of 20 miles (included in the hourly rate).

I provide textbooks, past paper questions and electronic copies of resources.

During a 'typical' tuition hour I would allocate time to go over a chosen topic providing notes. I would then encourage the learner to complete questions/activities and attempt past paper questions. Depending on the level I also encourage homework; especially for Higher and Advanced Higher, the focus being on extended answer questions (essays).

After tuition I can provide the learner with electronic copies of resources including PowerPoints.

Tuition costs range from £20-£30 per hour depending on level.
