Personal Description:

Hi, I'm Christina; I graduated from Oxford University with a 2.1 and then retrained to gain a PGCE (Distinction) in Secondary Science. As an experienced teacher and department leader I have always held consistently high expectations for students across the age and ability range, alongside building excellent relationships to ensure that students succeed.

Tutoring Experience:

Throughout my time in teaching I successfully taught across all three science disciplines at KS3 and GCSE, and Chemistry at A-Level. My most recent post, until late 2017, was as Head of Science. Prior to this I held a range of posts within science departments largely focused on improving results at GCSE and managing the transition to the new GCSE and A-Level qualifications.

I am an experienced GCSE Science examiner for Core and Additional Science (now Combined Science), Biology and Chemistry.

I have recently started a new career as a Senior Policy Advisor for Children's Social Care whilst continuing to work as a tutor, examiner, and writing resources for the new 9-1 qualifications.

Tutoring Approach:

My initial tutoring session always focuses on getting to know the student, their needs, and identifying their areas of strength and weakness to ensure that future sessions are bespoke, effective and targeted. This then allows me to ensure that the support provided is personalised to the individual.

My approach concentrates both on securing understanding of key concepts, and exam technique. I will always provide additional work for students between sessions, as regular review of topics will ensure that student knowledge improves. Combining this with marking and feedback on the work means that the benefits of tutoring extend beyond the session itself.
