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. All my pupils this year (2018) have achieved excellent grades.
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.
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.
