Information About Andrea - Cheltenham tutor - (6 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Andrea:
I am an qualified teacher of Science who has recently relocated to Cheltenham from Kent. I am currently taking a break from teaching to look after my three year old daughter.
I am an experienced science teacher who has taught for the last seven years at an outstanding school in Kent. I was Assistant Director of Learning for Science within this school and was responsible for the introduction and running of the A Level Biology Course. I have inspired and taught many students to take this course and to study biology courses at University. I was also responsible for teaching many of the GCSE classes within this school and found myself successfully teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics at GCSE as well as Double Award Science.
During sessions we focus on different topics per week as directed by the tutee. I extensively research the exam board syllabus being used by the tutee to go over the key points. Using by closed and open questioning techniques I can then assess areas of weakness which can then be specifically targeted. A range of exam questions are used to enable the student to apply the knowledge covered. This enables us to focus on the exam technique required by the examiners to achieve maximum marks. All of this takes place in a friendly positive atmosphere where the emphasis is placed on giving the tutee confidence to make mistakes and learn from them to become a better student.

Update - August 2015. Delighted to say that my daughter got the grades she needed to study Biology at Sheffield Uni. No doubt in my mind that this would not have happened without Andrea's guidance, support & motivation.
