I am an experienced tutor, classroom teacher and OCR and Cambridge examiner. I have experience of teaching and supporting students through all the major exam boards in Maths and Science. I am passionate about helping young people achieve their goals.
I taught in secondary schools as a Maths, Science and PE teacher for 4 years.
Since then I have been working free-lance as a private tutor teaching Maths and Science up to GCSE and Biology, Chemistry and Maths at A-level as well as extra-curricular enhancement including rock-climbing, Duke of Edinburgh award and John Muir award schemes
I love interacting one-to-one with students as I can really get to know them as individuals and explore and work with their specific strengths and needs. I love the flexibility of being able to tailor teaching sessions to the personal needs of the student and find that a variety of teaching styles - working indoors and outdoors and using lots of props and practical activities - helps to unlock understanding, increasing enjoyment of learning and improving exam grades. As I work full-time as a tutor I am available during school hours for home educated students as well as outside school hours to offer support alongide classroom teaching for students who would like extra help or are aiming for top grades.
