Loughborough Tutor

Students with aspirations to gain access to top sixth form colleges and universities are welcome to register their interest with me. My specialist tutoring subjects are GCSE, KS4, chemistry and A level, KS5, chemistry. Places are limited. My aim is to work with your child, within an agreed time frame, to achieve excellent grades and make it into the top sixth form colleges / schools / universities in UK or their chosen schools / colleges / universities.
I am currently teaching science at a reputable college. I am keen to challenge students to become independent learners and critical thinkers. This is what makes a student the best in his / her chosen field.
I am a qualified teacher with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I have experience teaching physics, chemistry and biology at secondary (Key Stage 3), GCSE (Key stage 4), AS and A level chemistry and biology (Key stage 5), college and university foundation course in chemistry.
I hold a first class (Hons) in BSc (Zoology and Botany). I also hold a post graduate certificate in education (PGCE), from Nottingham Trent University, in science. I also have a Master of Science, MSc.(Environmental Studies), from Loughborough University and a post graduate diploma, PGD, in Energy and Industrial Sustainability, from DeMontfort University. I also have various certificates in Information technology.
Prior to this, I taught Maths and Science at a number of secondary schools as well as A level Chemistry and Biology.
I am passionate about children and want to help them secure their future by realising their full potential.I have perceptive insight into students' intellectual, social and emotional needs; recognise that effective teaching underpins and enables successful learning; provide reassurance, build confidence and encourage student motivation and commitment.
I am also CRB / DBS certified and I'm willing to tutor anywhere. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further information.
I offer both fixed term and flexible tutoring. I believe that tutoring is about working with students to achieve the best in their studies. In other to achieve excellent results, students must commit to learning and the demands it commands.
I do not take on too many students, maximum of 3 students, so spaces tend to be limited.
I am able to travel if a request is put in for my services. This may include families who need the services of tutors while on holidays or who live in difficult to access areas of UK.
During holidays, I am able to take fixed term bookings to ensure that students cover areas required by exam bodies.
My tutoring availability is flexible. Contact me for further details.

Tutoring Experience

I have 5 years teaching experience at secondary GCSE and A levels, and teaching university foundation courses in chemistry. I also have vast experience of tutoring children / students on a one-on-one basis. I have an online presence through my own blog on science where students can access other resources needed to progress well in their studies.
My experience includes my passion to help students achieve great heights in science.

Tutoring Approach

Commitment is key to achieving success. You can achieve success, in everything you put your mind to do, provided you put in the time it demands.
I always strive to understand my students and adjust my teaching to fit their personal needs.
If a student requests to be prepared for exams, I prepare an extensive resource tailored to my student. With the new curriculum and the demands of current specifications and exams, my students tend to benefit from linked questions as well as being challenged to score excellent grades in their subject specific areas.
