I am a former Head of Science with over 10 years' teaching experience. I enjoy teaching and tutoring and would like to concentrate on tutoring alone for the foreseeable future.
I offer solid, comprehensive, support in Science and Maths for all the English Examination boards - including the International Baccalaureate. I can (and do) also enter/administer/teach/ and prepare students for GCSE/A-level Science, and Maths, examinations - privately (outside of the school environment). This service could be invaluable to students with either: special needs; want more control over their own education, or more simply just need a second chance to achieve their aspirations.
Over ten years’ experience teaching biology, chemistry and physics to A-level. Also, about seven years’ experience teaching mathematics to A-level and about five years’ experience working with special needs students - particularly Asperger syndrome.
Plus, over three years tutoring experience in science and mathematics - SAT level to A-level.
I prefer to work with the knowledge students already possess and build from there: expect friendly learning targets, pre-tests, progress tests and honest progress reports on strengths and weakness and plenty of homework.
I am very calm, patient and supportive with my students. My lessons are structured to provide exactly what you need to know, well explained, and tailored to meet each student's specific needs: includes a variety of hands on material and varied learning styles supported with after lesson homework.
I provide good support with English and Maths literacy along with plenty of advice/hands-on experience with structuring/answering examination questions – to get students solidly prepared for their examinations.
