Personal Description:

Are you taking your science GCSE this summer? If so then contact me to receive private science tuition on a 1 to 1 basis.
I am very passionate about my subject, Science, in particular Biology. My lessons are engaging, interesting and fun. I am reliable, punctual and approachable. I am attracted to tutoring due to my wish to work with children and young adults and to help them learn, along with the desire to fulfil a worthwhile role in society, the expectation of intellectual stimulation, together with the wish to remain involved in my subject discipline of Science and to pass on my personal enthusiasms.

I believe I am sincere and genuine, so creating an atmosphere of trust, and able to build rapport with my students. When students feel able to trust me, they will behave more naturally, express themselves more honestly and be more likely to ask me for help. They will become more open to my expectations, and will also be able to take on board my criticism because they will understand that I have their best interests at heart. Crucially, they will try things beyond their comfort zone because they won`t be afraid of the consequences of making mistakes. The student will ultimately gain confidence which is sometimes all that is needed.
I am available in Hull and the surrounding villages. I am prepared to travel up to 20 miles

Tutoring Experience:

I have 6 years experience of tutoring GCSE (years 10 and 11) and Key Stage 3 (year 7,8 and 9) in Combined Science. I have tutored IGCSE Science, OCR 21st Century Science and have a good knowledge and experience in the new Combined Science Trilogy course. I give sound advice on revision techniques and planning and provide revision sessions if required. A word of advice, please do not leave revision sessions till last minute, although, late revision is better then no revision at all!

Tutoring Approach:

I will provide an introduction to a topic and follow a well planned step by step hour long lesson plan. The lesson will include an engaging starter, student centred tasks and a plenary. I will differentiate my lesson to the need of the student. The current scheme of learning will be followed and I will cover exam specifications.
I will tailor the lessons to your child's specific requirements, targeting any weaknesses and building on any strengths that the student may have. I can ensure that I am familiar with all specifications and have access to past papers, mark schemes. The student will be tested regularly to ensure progress is being made.
When going through past papers, I provide expertise, experience, and encouragement.
I do not provide "answers," but rather I assist in problem solving, in getting answers. I am available on Saturday afternoons between 2.00pm and 4.00pm and also during half terms on the evenings
