Personal Description:

I have a background in Biological Sciences at degree level, with a specialism in Medical Microbiology and Virology. Having taught a range of subjects including Science, Geography and ICT, I have demonstrated adaptability and versatility, in addition to excellent teaching skills. I have strong subject knowledge in Biology up to degree level, Chemistry up to A Level, and Physics up to GCSE. I have excellent skills and experience in ICT, English and Maths, and would be happy to provide tuition in these subjects too. I have experience teaching in a number of schools in Coventry and the local area. I also have experience as an Undergraduate Student Associate, Teaching Assistant and Learning Mentor. I am an effective communicator and am skilled at assessing pupils learning needs, target setting and tutoring a wide range of pupils of varying abilities and backgrounds.

Tutoring Experience:

I have successfully tutored 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.

Additionally, I have experience working with pupils and teaching staff dating back to my work in voluntary capacity with the Special Needs department at my school, whilst a sixth form student. Following this, I have continued to work within the Education sector, initially as a Student Associate with the University of Warwick and Tudor Grange School, Solihull, (in a Teaching Assistant and Learning Mentor role) whilst an undergraduate student.

I have completed a student placement at Kenilworth School and Sports College as a Trainee Science Teacher. Although I haven't completed the PGCE course, my strong qualities as a teacher, and my strong knowledge of the National Curriculum and theories of learning and development, secured me an unqualified teaching position at a local independent girls school with an intake between ages 11-14. I began by teaching KS3 Science, Geography, and KS3 and KS4 ICT. I successfully planned, delivered and evaluated lessons, in addition to assessing and tracking pupil progress. I am currently teaching Science and Maths at KS3.

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.
