Information About Laura - Coatbridge tutor - (3 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Laura:
I am a young and enthusiastic teacher with 5 years teaching experience. I currently teach biology at National 3,4 and 5 level and also Higher Human biology. I have great relationships with my current pupils due to my love for the subject and my bubbly and friendly attitude.
I was a police office before becoming a teacher, and so I am a confident, organised and reliable individual.
I care deeply about my profession and aim to give every child the greatest opportunity to reach their full potential. When I was in school I struggled through some of my own subjects and had tutors who helped me through, therefore I understand the huge benefit this can have, as sometimes, a child just needs that little bit extra help in order to fully succeed.
I am currently on maternity leave and so I am flexible with my availability.
I am a fully qualified teacher, who has an strong passion for the subject and a fresh approach to its teaching.
I have presented pupils for examination at various levels of SQA qualifications and I have taught after school supported study and Easter school sessions for pupils of all levels of ability, all of whom have expressed how much clearer the subject has become to them after my help, which has been proven through increased test results.
I have also been a marker for the SQA exams which gives me a deaper insight into the requirements expected of each pupil
I bring a fresh approach to teaching through use of visual aids and comical ways to remember tough concepts. Biology is a content heavy subject and so my approach is to visualise processes to understand the facts, rather than to merely attempt to memorise them.
When I tutor, I spend time on the theory of a particular topic so that there is a sound knowledge base, which I then use to apply to problem solving questions (a common aspect pupils fall down on) to build up self-confidence in the pupil and give them plenty practice of exam style questions.
