English (Foreign Language)
I taught secondary school science for several years and am also an experienced private tutor. I currently work as a freelance medical writer and tutor. I received a PhD in molecular biology from the Cardiff Medical School and a PGCE from Durham University. I specialise in biology and maths, but also have experience of teaching all sciences, and I have also taught KS4 maths. I understand and am compassionate with the needs and fears of struggling students, and can tutor effectively across the whole spectrum of student confidence and ability levels. I also mark A level exams which gives me an in depth understanding of how to do well in exams.
I am also CELTA qualified and have experience teaching English as a foreign language.
As well as having been a teacher in secondary schools for several years teaching science and biology to A level, I have tutored privately in both science and maths. I also mark A level Biology exams and so have a very good understanding of common mistakes in the application of knowledge in this subject.
I also have considerable experience teaching English to foreign language students.
I believe that every student is different; on first meeting I work to develop a relationship of confidence and trust, producing a study plan that will aim to meet the student’s particular needs. I advocate the development of good study habits, and have a positive approach which is aimed at building self-assurance and an atmosphere where the student is comfortable and feels a sense of progression and achievement.
