Personal Description:

I am an A level biology examiner as well as being a fully qualified science teacher with over ten years of experience.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught science to GCSE level and A level biology for over ten years in secondary schools. Since relocating to Stroud, I have tutored students in A level biology for the past four years. I am also an examiner for OCR A level biology. The experience of marking A level papers has enabled me to help my tutees effectively prepare for exams.

Tutoring Approach:

The style of tutoring needed by individual students will vary. It may start with ensuring understanding of the key concepts in biology at an appropriate level. The jump to A level from GCSE is quite considerable and even the brightest students can struggle initially. Another essential skill needed is the ability to pull together biological content taught in different parts of the syllabus. As exam time approaches, a student has to apply their knowledge and understanding to real exam questions. Practice of exam technique is often a large part of a tutorial session in the run up to A level exams. I am able to give feedback on individual questions which enables a student to improve and hone their answers.
