Information About Gale - Guildford tutor - (13 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Gale:
I am a qualified science teacher who has taught in a range of schools. I am also an Examiner for the AQA board, and am rated as an A grade examiner.
I have previously worked as an ecologist, and am currently re-training to become a healthcare practitioner, so I am somewhat obsessed with biology!
I have taught in both comprehensive schools and public institutions, including the prestigious Charterhouse in Surrey.
I have taught from KS3 up to A level. I have taught the exam boards Edexel, WJEC, AQA and OCR.
Although it's a fabulous subject, Science can at times seem daunting and somewhat scary, so my initial goals are to increase a students confidence and to make their learning fun! I will break a difficult topic down in a way that makes it easier to understand, and I will support my students to demonstrate their understanding by successfully applying it to exam questions and other forms of assessment.
As a fully qualified teacher, I have been taught and assessed on my ability to explain concepts clearly; to adapt my teaching style so that it's suitable for each individual, and to make my learning relevant, fun and to teach in a way that best enhances each students progress. I also use a range of fun resources, such as card sorts, models, puzzles and board games.

Gale seems very organised and is punctual and approachable.
- she found the lessons extremely helpful (she didn't realise what she didn't know until she'd started with Gale);
- Gale was a great teacher and explained everything they covered really well in terms of both content and the presentation of the answers
- Gale gave her confidence in her own ability
In hindsight, we wish we'd started lessons with Gale earlier.
Thank you for your help,
Simon (and Georgina)
We cannot recommend her highly enough
She has helped boost my daughter's confidence immensely. Gale has been great teacher and I would recommend her to anyone needing support in science. Thank you Gale.
We are extremely pleased with the tutoring provided by Gale and will continue on a weekly basis for the foreseeable future.
Many thanks for your positive feedback. I don't envy Danielle sitting the first run of a brand new A level, but will do what I can to ensure she gets the (good) grade she deserves,
Many thanks for your kind review. Kirsty is a very responsive and able student and has the potential to secure a good grade at A level.
