Personal Description:

Are you ready to start learning Science in September 2016? Are you starting to study for your Science GCSE ? Are you re sitting your Science GCSE.? 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.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 4 years experience of tutoring GCSE Core, Additional and Further Additional Science and Biology, Chemistry and Physics at Key Stages 3. I have tutored IGCSE Science, OCR 21st Century Science and I have a good knowledge of the new 'AQA GCSE Science A and Science B course over a range of abilities. I can 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! I am also familiar with the new AQA Science Specification which starts Sep 2016

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
