I am a friendly and personable biology teacher who has been teaching science at a GCSE and advanced level since 2007.
I currently teach A level biology at a sixth form college and have previously taught all 3 three sciences to GCSE level as head of KS4 in my previous school.
As a currently employed biology teacher i have extensive understanding of required knowledge and skills to gain good grades at A-level.
I have additionally also taught GCSE chemistry and physics as well as biology whilst head of KS4 at a secondary school in the area.
As well as the experience teaching GCSE's and A levels i have many years experience teaching the vocational BTEC Applied Science at level 2 and level 3.
I have worked with hundreds of pupils in my years as a teacher. Not only do I support pupils within the classroom by facilitating their learning using a variety of methods and approaches I also support pupils individually beyond the classroom. I carry out extensive subject and learning support sessions with select pupils on a more individual basis where we improve either subject knowledge or study skills.
I aim to adjust each session to cater for each learners individual needs and deliver a personalised session to the tutee. Our first session together we will allow me to learn what your aims for the sessions are and build a personalised learning experience for you from there.
I believe it is important to build tutees confidence with the concepts and theory as set out by the exam board and then move on to applying that knowledge to exam questions. Sessions will build skills in decoding exam questions and creating answers that use subject specific language using previous mark schemes to become familiar with this language.
A/A* grades are achieved by demonstrating high levels of analysis and evaluation using knowledge of the subject in unfamiliar contexts and through practice exam questions and support we will develop these skills.
