I am a retired science teacher with 25 years experience including one-to-one Maths tuition at KS2. I teach all sciences to GCSE, KS2 & KS3 Maths. I have a degree in Biological sciences and a PGCE from King's College London. After passing an HND at Bristol and Seale Hayne agricultural college I worked in the pharmaceutical industry where I was sponsored to complete my degree in pharmacology and biochemistry by day release over three years. After nearly 9 years I felt |I needed a career change so I took a PGCE in science at King's College, London. I started teaching in 1989. As a teacher, I have taught in Dagenham, Basildon, Thurrock and Essex. I am a keen musician and play tuba, acoustic, electric and bass guitars. I am a member of the Salvation Army (Christian church).

Tutoring Experience

25+ years since 1989. As teacher I have taught in Science (BTec and GCSE) and A level biology in Dagenham, Basildon, Thurrock and Essex. I have been a form tutor, deputy head of year, KS3 science co-ordinator, sixth form science co-ordinator and a head of science. I have also taught one-to-one KS2 Maths in primary schools. I have been tutoring since May 2015.

Tutoring Approach

I cover an area within a subject by going through the necessary content using a variety of approaches. Then practise exam questions and techniques focusing on using the best language. I like to have contact with school so so that particular weaknesses can be targetted. I am patient and try to make learning fun and enjoyable at any level.
