Doncaster Tutor

I am a fully qualified Secondary School Science teacher currently working at Hall Cross Academy in Doncaster teaching GCSE Biology & Chemistry and AS Level AQA Biology. I have also worked on a Thursday evening Removed tutoring both GCSE Science & AS Biology students. I am 28 years old and hold a 1st class BSc degree from the University of Hull.

Tutoring Experience

I am now in my seventh year of teaching, I qualified as an outstanding teacher through the Graduate Teacher Programme which provided me with hands on experience of teaching in a Secondary School. I like single student tuition as the progress made is exemplified and much more rapid than the progress made in a larger classroom environment.
Please see my excellent feedback from previous tutees :-)

Tutoring Approach

Initially, I would seek to find out the students strengths and weaknesses and use those to tailor my tutoring to their requirements. Exam practice and very targeted revision with an emphasis on building content confidence and application of knowledge skills through the structured use of past exam questions. Course content will also be re-taught if required.
I also ask open ended questions to probe knowledge and current understanding and often ask questions in a manner which makes it easy to eliminate misconceptions.
