Personal Description:

Graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2016 with a 2.1 BSc Hons in Chemistry.

Currently with Wigan and West Lancashire Catholic School Direct, in association with Liverpool Hope University - PGCE in Secondary Science.

Education summary:
* 10 GCSE's at grade A*- A, with a B in French
* A Levels in Biology, Chemistry, History and General Studies - BBBC
* AS Levels in Maths and Extended Project - BB
* BSc (Hons) Chemistry - The University of Liverpool - 2.1

Tutoring Experience:

> School Direct PGCE Teacher Training - Responsible for the teaching of 6 separate classes totalling nearly 150 students in each of the three placement schools. I have experience of teaching KS3 Y7-8, and also KS4 Y9-11, having a good knowledge of the New GCSE curriculum in Science.

> The University of Liverpool
- CHEM390 Science Communication [full year module]: planned, developed and delivered two, 90 minute outreach sessions to 30 secondary school students as well as helping out my colleagues in their sessions.
- My Final Project and Dissertation matter are based on an area relating to the chemistry of Gelation, and the subsequent development and delivery of a lesson.
- Demonstrator: Year 12 STEM Masterclasses.

> RAF Air Cadets - Civilian Instructor.

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, I will arrange a meeting with parents and the student somewhere away from home, have a coffee and a chat about what exactly their expectations are, what subjects are needing additional support and the areas they struggle with. This is the time to get a bit of information on the student's current progress, so reports are useful to bring along, as well as any SEN information needed.

Next, the first tutoring session, I will always meet with students in their own home With parents there, preferably a lounge or kitchen where the student can quietly work and chat with me in the corner. This allows parents to acknowledge how their child is progressing themselves and is the recommended guidance on this website for the protection of the tutor. The first session will gage the student's confidence and familiarise them with what might be a new and scary prospect, breaking down the barriers so that I can do my job effectively.

Finally, normal sessions will be individually tailored to the student, with KS3 it might consist more of tutor led sessions, extending the experience they have in the classroom and giving them more time on certain topics. For KS4, certain topics will be identified by the student and examples will be gone through. The majority of the time will be spent on past paper style questions and exam technique.

I recommend all students possess the relevant GCSE Science or Maths textbooks, as these contain good practice questions and content for them to revise with.
