Personal Description:

Hello! I am a science teacher at a local Southend comprehensive school, specialising in Biology/natural sciences. I am patient, approachable and I have a massive passion for anything science!

Tutoring Experience:

I qualified from Southend initial teacher training in 2015 with a PGCE in secondary education (science). During my training I worked in two Southend schools (comprehensive and grammar) and I was recognised as an 'outstanding' teacher in my final observations.
I am now a qualified science teacher,still teaching in Southend, teaching to a huge range of ability. I have lots of experience with tutoring students (1-to-1 and small groups) both inside and outside of school time.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to build confidence and teach the student new ways to enhance their own learning. I also hope to build enthusiasm for the subject. I will always start tutoring sessions with a subject audit to really understand the main issues they are facing. We will work through together small sections at a time, slowly building up the grade they are working at and also the level of support needed to answer the exam style questions. I recommend a 1 hour sessions with 11-14 year olds. Additional students are welcome!

I have experience working from both 2011 Edexcel and AQA syllabuses (mainly Biology). In addition, this year I have started teaching the new tricky 2016 Edexcel (year 9) Biology course.
With GCSE students (yr 9, 10 and 11) I will always start with a subject audit to identify areas of strength and weakness. I will also spend time to identify the students preferred learning style. Ultimately, myself and the student will be aiming to complete GCSE past papers with confidence. However, I will ensure we work up to this first by teaching areas of difficulty and focusing on finding what really works for the student. I will use a range of resources to help the student.

With 10 weeks to go - GCSEs are fast approaching for year 10 and 11 so please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to tutor small groups (extra £5 per tutee) of students or 1-to-1. I am also happy to travel to you (Shoebury, Southend areas, Chalkwell, Leigh on sea or Benfleet) or for you to come to me (Leigh-on sea) if too familiar at home.

I look forward to hearing from you.
