I am a science graduate from the university of Nottingham and have worked in both the NHS and pharmaceutical industry. I have been tutoring science since September 2014 and tutor in biology, chemistry and physics up to GCSE level. I also have students in their AS level year, who have remained with me after working with them at GCSE level.

I have worked with students from both the private at state sector across Derbyshire and also have experience of working with students who are disengaged from education. I have experience of various exam boards including, AQA (including the old and the newly introduced syllabus), OCR 21st century and Edexcel, including their International IGCSE course.

I am an adaptable tutor who is creative, to ensure all students make progress and reach their full potential.

I loved tutoring and education that much that it lead me to do supply/cover work across Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire. This in turn enabled me to secure a place on The University of Nottingham's Secondary Science PGCE course where I gained Qualified Teacher Status (rated 'OUTSTANDING' on my final teaching profile)and pass the academic component with Distinction.

I volunteer at a local charity and as a befriender to those at risk of social isolation. I therefore have a fully enhanced DBS check which I can provide you with so you can check my details online.

I am happy to provide a free 30 minute consultation with you, which will provide you with an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and will allow me to get to know you as a family. If yourself and your son/daughter is happy, we can then continue with a tuition session directly after.

If you require Removed/online tuition, Removed or have any special educational needs that need accommodating, then please contact for further information.

Tutoring Experience

I have experience of teaching science at KS3 (11-14), KS4 (14-16) and at KS5 (post 16). I have taught both in secondary mainstream and also at a Post 16 college. I have also spent time in an SEN provision setting to improve my awarness of supporting all learners.

I have covered the following syllabuses:

KS4:
AQA (old and new spec)
OCR 21st Century
Edexcel
Edexcel IGCSE

KS5:
AQA
OCR

Tutoring Approach

I am a lighthearted and dynamic tutor who gives a lot of time to pupil/student voice. I think it is vital that students can dictate the sessions (if they want to/are able to) so that they can gain maximum benefit to them.

I establish a good rapport with all my tutees and this has been highlighted as a real positive with all the families I have worked with. My tutoring style is relaxed which helps put a student at ease; after all they are having extra lessons outside of school! They can however be very formal if this is what the family would prefer. I always make time to discuss the session at the end with parents/family/guardian.

I have worked with students from both the private and state sector and across the ability range. I adapt the sessions to suit the student and to engage them and maintain their curiosity.
