Personal Description:

I'm a secondary science teacher who specialises in GCSE biology. I'm in my second year of teaching and have found my favourite bit of my job to be the after school revision sessions for our GCSE students. I love seeing students succeed in subjects that they have previously struggled with and actually start to enjoy the subject in the
process.

I have always loved biology and have usually had a house full of interesting animals to show it! When I'm not teaching, I love baking, motorcycling and the occasional bit of scuba diving.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught at my current school for the past two years. Before this, I volunteered at a range of schools and pupil referral units in Hull, working with small groups of students in lessons and taking individuals out for extra help in maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I think that tutoring should be centred around what you, the student needs, whether this be revisiting the content that you have covered in class or focussing on exam technique.

I would first want to meet with you to discuss where you would like some help and what your targets are in terms of levels or grades. Then, we can put together a plan for how to get you there.

In teaching, I would look to link content to things that you will come across in real life to give the ideas context and help you to understand and remember them. Then for exam technique, we would look at how to recognise different types of question, what they are looking for and simple methods for getting marks.

The end goal is for you to be successful without tutoring, so we can look at revision techniques, ways to learn independently and transferrable skills that you can use across your subjects. I want you to feel confident that you can succeed in any subject that you are willing to put the work into.
