I am a qualified, experienced Biology teacher with a genuine enthusiasm for the subject. I really enjoy teaching and find that my enthusiasm motivates students to learn and achieve. I have a very good rapport with all of my students and so they find me approachable and feel confident to ask questions.
I offer online tutoring via Zoom or Skype. With online tutoring I use a collaborative interactive whiteboard so students still get the same quality teaching as face to face tutoring. I am currently studying for my MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the University of Edinburgh’s veterinary school.

I have 14 years experience in teaching Biology at GCSE, A Level and undergraduate level with proven results. My most recent role was at an Independent College where I was a specialist teacher of Biology A Level. Many of my students go on to University to study Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science or Biology. I have also been a lecturer in Anatomy & Physiology, Biochemistry and Breeding and Genetics for different undergraduate degree programmes.
Being an expert examiner in Biology for the exam boards AQA and Edexcel, I have a great insight in to how exam answers are assessed and can pass this knowledge on to my students to help them construct the best exam responses.
I have been a private tutor for the past 7 years.
I am an approachable, friendly and patient tutor. I have a confident and flexible approach to tutoring and tailor my teaching methods to best suit my tutees approach to learning. I have many different resources to use during tuition sessions in order to make even the most difficult topics understandable. I am familiar with the new A-Level Biology syllabus and have attended courses run by the exam boards. Exam technique is just as important as understanding the theoretical concepts of Biology in order to achieve the higher grades and therefore have different ways of helping students with this. I have a wealth of notes, revision resources and practice exam questions that I share with my tutees.
I tutor at weekly sessions, offer intensive revision or catch-up sessions during the school holidays and preparation for A level Biology/A level Year 2 throughout the summer holidays.
