Personal Description:

I am an experienced teacher, specialised in Physics and Chemistry. I have been teaching Science in secondary schools around Hertfordshire , having started my career as a teacher in portuguese education.

Tutoring Experience:

My experience is extensive and includes 13 years as classroom teacher as well as head of Physics department at Bushey Meads School.
I have successful experience of Science GCSE teaching and tutoring of both main exam boards (AQA and OCR), as well as of teaching and tutoring A-level Physics (AQA A, OCR A and OCR B) and Key stage 3 Maths.
I am also available to help with oral and written Portuguese language

Tutoring Approach:

The first step in a good learning relationship is the understanding of the needs of the tutee, so I will ask you to first fill a quick online questionnaire in order to find out what kind of help you need. This will allow me to taylor the tutoring sessions according to your needs.

A typical tutoring session will include :
- what the objectives / title of the session is
- quick explanation or demonstration where possible and relevant
- working on relevant exam questions, focusing on exam technique and problem solving skills (this is normally the main part of the session)
- recap of the objectives and setting of a target for next session.

When MOCK or Public exams approach , I normally ask my tutees to sit past exam papers at home, which I will mark (with comments), ready for the following session when we normally look at the marks that were missed.
