Personal Description:

I am a University of Warwick graduate (BSc Hons) in Biological Sciences, with a specialism in Medical Microbiology and Virology. I have worked as an unqualified classroom teacher, and as a private tutor, in addition to working in libraries.

I have taught KS3, GCSE and AS Level Biology, and have worked in primary and secondary schools.

I have nearly 10 years experience successfully providing tuition in A Level Chemistry, and GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I have also successfully tutored Maths and English at KS2.

Please note that I provide tuition from my home, I live in Lozells, B19.

If you require tuition in a subject not listed, you can contact me for further discussion, as I am flexible, having covered a wide range of subjects.

Currently, I am available some evenings and both weekend mornings.

Tutoring Experience:

Over the last ten years, I have successfully taught students in the Sciences up to GCSE and in Biology and Chemistry up to A-Level. I have experience with the major examinations boards including AQA, Edexcel and OCR, and have also taught the IGCSE. Additionally, I have tutored in Maths and English at KS2. My working knowledge of the national curriculum, and the examination specifications and past examination papers is very strong.

Tutoring Approach:

Having taught a range of subjects at KS3 and KS4, with an emphasis on Science, I have strong demonstrable subject knowledge and excellent working knowledge of the National Curriculum. I also have experience evaluating and assessing pupil progress, and adapting my teaching to suit. This helps to inform my approach to tutoring.

I usually begin tutoring by evaluating the learner's learning needs and understanding their objectives and reasons for seeking tuition. I then use a wide range of techniques to encourage understanding and motivate learning.

Discussing the learners preferred learning style e.g. visual style, helps me to tailor tuition sessions to suit individual pupils. Clear explanations coupled with plenty of worked and practise examples help to cement understanding of key concepts.

Providing tuition at the right pace and covering areas of weakness in depth, with plenty of practice, has been the key to providing successful tuition. Past examination papers and ICT-based animations and presentations have also been useful in explaining difficult concepts and encouraging students to apply their skills and knowledge.
