Personal Description:

I have been a teacher of Science and Biology for several years in York and Harrogate. Before this I was in industry and have always enjoyed the challenge of making Science relevant to students in terms of everyday applications and career possibilities.
I love nothing more than helping students get to grips with concepts that they find challenging or just approaching exam questions from a different perspective so that they become clear. I like to prepare high quality teaching resources and provide students with revision summaries, questions and a whole load of exam preparation materials in order .

Tutoring Experience:

For the past 4 years I have been tutoring full time. My main experience is in tutoring Biology A level (AQA , OCR and Edexcel Salters) along with Biology and Science GCSE. Prior to this, I taught A level Biology, GCSE and KS3 Science and co-ordinated A level Vocational Science in Secondary schools in York and Harrogate. As an examiner for AQA, I have marked A level and GCSE Biology exams for 15 years, including the new linear A level exams introduced in 2015

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and approachable but I also make it very clear to students that they need to develop a wide range of skills in order to succeed in Biology A level. I expect students to work hard, challenge themselves and I set homework to to be completed by the following lesson. We work together to develop exam techniques such as interpreting and breaking down challenging questions, structuring answers that gain all the marks, tackling Maths and application questions and writing essays. The aim is to help students gain in confidence and increase academic achievement; they should also develop tenacity and logical skills to improve grades by tackling the most difficult exam questions.
