Personal Description:

I took a year out from tutoring to gain qualified teacher status (QTS) and am now returning to tutor. I am qualified to doctorate, PhD level in science and a professional tutor. I have a 100% pass rate with my previous students, mostly exceeding their target grades and achieving grade A's. I aim for my students to achieve and exceed their expectations, by providing an excellent tutoring service and importantly to boost their self confidence.

I am a mother of 3 children, so I am experienced and familiar with the modern school framework, from KS1 to KS4 together with my in school training for QTS. I am also human and enjoy fun times with my family, being outdoors especially when the sun shines and nature.

Note: I became fully booked rather quickly from recommendations. I am now taking on for next year’s school support for September 2016, so do not delay. I also prefer to tutor from my home as stated on my profile, however I will consider travelling out. If you did want travel to you, there will be additional fuel costs, which must be agreed on before tutoring commences.

Tutoring Experience:

QTS secondary science teacher qualified.

Over 7 years experience as a professional tutor, which includes:
KS2, KS3 maths, english and science

Entry examinations for age 11+, 13+ scholarships

GCSE sciences, including geography (foundation, additional, triple and individual sciences) for the examination boards AQA, OCR, Edexcel and WJEC

A-level chemistry includes the AQA, Edexcel and OCR exam boards

BSc undergraduate chemistry specific support

With 12 years of teaching experience as a University Associate Lecturer, I taught at undergraduate (BSc) and postgraduate (MSc) levels in a range of science subjects, laboratory and essential learning skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I ensure my students know that they are having a ‘tutor session’ with an approachable Tutor, rather than a ‘lesson’ in a classroom with a ‘busy’ teacher. Hence, allowing the student to work at their pace and to ask as many questions as they wish to verify any misunderstandings. This allows the student to be learning at ease without any pressure.

As part of my tuition fee, I provide personally hand-written (100% original) revision sheets with exam style questions, specific to the examination board taken and adapted to the individual’s needs. Previous students have found these to be invaluable in their revision.

I offer an open minded approach to teaching to aid understanding of the subject. I am very flexible, offering the use of drawings and other media, avoiding the use of just text books, to enhance learning.

I adopt a personal policy to provide an excellent tutoring service for my students so they achieve their best results which has a knock on effect which is an achievement for me.
