This is how 2 referees rated Melda Louise:
I qualified as a Biology and Chemistry teacher in 1994 and have been loving the job ever since. I offer expert tuition combined with a kind and patient approach to students of all abilities. I live near Saffron Walden and until recently worked full time at a sixth form college in Cambridge. I have been tutoring on a casual basis for many years, helping the children of friends and acquaintances, with great success. I now **Contact Detail Removed**l time. As well as one-to-one tuition I also run Easter GCSE revision courses in Saffron Walden.
I have worked in a variety of schools and colleges, so am experienced in helping students of all ability in the 11-18 age group. My work in an international sixth form college has helped me develop a particular expertise in helping students whose first language is not English. I have been an examiner for A level and GCSE Biology for 19 years, and so I have valuable experience in helping students structure answers which will gain full credit.
Each lesson is tailored to the needs of the student. This could be by teaching essential factual knowledge or helping students understand what they have been taught at school. A very important part of the job is helping students with exam technique: What exactly is the question asking me? How do I go about answering it? What specialist terminology is essential in the answer? If required I can focus on study skills and revision techniques which will help factual recall and understanding. I provide a set of notes to accompany all the topics studied and sets of exam practice questions if necessary. Lessons are always varied and could include animations, quizzes, videos, practice questions, mind maps and much more.
