Personal Description:

I am a science teacher at a local Southend 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 2014 with a PGCE in secondary education (science). During my training I worked in two Southend schools (comprehensive and grammar).
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, small groups, SEND students and home school students) both inside and outside of school time to a range of exam boards and target levels.
I am also working with year 5 and 6 students in the southend area, broadening their interest in STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, art and maths).

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 lots of experience teaching GCSE qualifications especially the new tricky 2016 Edexcel course (Biology) and 2016 AQA course (biology).
I have also catered for entry level qualifications and Eton independent school entrance exams. I am always happy to cater for new qualifications.

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.

I live in Leigh on sea and have a calm space to complete tuition. You are welcome to stay for the first session if you feel necessary. I teach full time so tuition will only be available after my work hours which on occasion may have to change as school commitments may also.

I am happy to cater for small groups with a £5 additional charge for each student for extra resources.

I look forward to hearing from you.
