I have an excellent academic track record, having achieved 12 A*s at GCSE, 4 As at A-level and a 1st class Honours degree (Natural Sciences) from Cambridge University. I also have an MA(Ed) in Education from Durham University. I am an experienced secondary school teacher and enjoy helping young people achieve success.
As well as offering academic tuition, I offer very thorough coaching to students preparing their UCAS personal statements for university entry.
I have 15 years of teaching experience, including 5 as Head of Science in two local secondary schools.
I lead our school's UCAS process whilst still teaching GCSE and A-level Sciences. My students' exam results are consistently on or above target and I have an excellent track record of helping students to attain University offers.
I focus on ensuring that students understand how to match their improving subject knowledge to exam questions. My approach to tutoring uses strategies that have been successfully applied with my own exam classes over a number of years. Above all, I'm friendly but have high expectations.
Coaching for personal statements can be tailored to your individual needs.
