Information About Linda - Sale tutor - (2 reviews)
This is how 4 referees rated Linda:
Because I have marked GCSE papers for many years I am able to help young people know exactly what is required to get the highest possible grade of which they are capable. I 'm very proud of the results my pupils have obtained over the years.
I'm a Biology graduate with a PGCSE and I taught Biology in a school to GCSE level for over 20 years until 10 years ago when it closed and I decided to concentrate on my personal tutoring. I am also a GCSE examiner for one of the national boards.
A few years ago,one of my pupils achieved one of the top 5 GCSE marks in the country.
Note for 2018: If you are considering tuition for the new GCSE's please don't leave it till February and come to me not knowing what enzymes and photosynthesis are. I have had some pupils this year who have left things too late to get the grades they would like. The new GCSEs are very rigorous. It is better to come earlier in the course, to catch up in the areas where you are struggling. You can always stop once you have caught up…
I'm a lively person and wherever possible, like to make lessons fun and interesting. I love teaching and my pupils have always said how much they have enjoyed being taught by me. I have a particular interest in pupils who are struggling with understanding and have developed many 'tricks of the trade' over the years to help them. To me the ultimate sign of my success is to see just how many of my ex-pupils have gone on to do 'A' level, Biology, having come to love it as a subject.
