Personal Description:

I became a biology teacher after completing a biology degree at the University of Southampton.
I am an enthusiastic teacher who really enjoys motivating, stretching and supporting students to achieve their best. Having recently taken voluntary redundancy, I now have more time to devote to tutoring. I really enjoy working one to one with students of all abilities and helping them to reach their full potential.
I am happy to offer a discount of £20 off your first session to cover the cost of you needing to pay for my details.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a qualified teacher and have taught biology GCSE and A level at a local college for 22 years. For the last 5 years, I have also offered one to one tuition for GCSE and A level and have specialist knowledge of a range of exam boards including OCR, AQA and WJEC.
I can also offer assignment support for Btec health and care science units.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one tuition can be a valuable addition to a students' in school/college education and maximise their chances of getting into university. By getting to know the student I aim to create a relaxed atmosphere in which the student feels confident to ask questions and improve their subject knowledge. I try to identify areas of weakness and use a variety of learning styles to improve these. As well as working to improve the students subject knowledge it is important to spend time working on exam technique and revision strategies. I use past papers and mark schemes to help students to improve on this. The new reformed A levels are proving to be very demanding for all students. I work with students to help them master questions based on practical work and maths, which now account for a higher percentage of marks.
I set homework which is carefully marked with constructive feedback given.
By working with students to improve their independent learning skills, improvements may be seen in other subjects as well as in biology.
