Hello I'm Lynne and I am a passionate, committed and extremely patient tutor. I am a University of Glasgow graduate with both a BSc (Hons) in Medical Biochemistry (1999) and a PhD in Biochemistry (2004). After completing my education I continued my career in scientific research working as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Glasgow, the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research and the University of Calgary. I started my tutoring business 5 years ago and I have been tutoring on a full time basis since then. I have always enjoyed mentoring and inspiring young minds and I wish to continue sharing my knowledge by being a home tutor. I have a wealth of knowledge, both factual and practical, in maths, biology and chemistry and I am keen to share this knowledge with your child. I have the unique advantage over other tutors that I tutor Maths, biology and chemistry from primary 1 up to university level and as such I am able to assist your child in all 3 areas if required. I have only a few spaces left for the coming academic year (2017-2018) therefore if you think your child would benefit from my service please get in touch to secure your spot just in time for the new academic year commencing.
I have 13 years of experience of teaching at various levels from tutoring friends and family for their high school exams to tutoring undergraduate students at university studying for their degrees. I have tutored all levels of students in the subjects of maths, biology and chemistry. I have tutored on a full time basis for the past 5 years with tutees of various levels of study ranging from primary school to mature students studying at college and university. I have extensive knowledge and experience tutoring students studying for the new Curriculum for Excellence at National 4, National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels. I also specialise in more short term intensive tuition for students resitting university exams or looking to gain the knowledge to apply for university access courses and degree courses.
I always ensure that I treat each student as an indiviual and tailor my method and approach to tutoring to the individual students needs. I am a very patient person who is never defeated so if a student does not understand immediately how to approach a problem I give them the tools to work through the problem methodically and with patience. As well as identifying areas of improvement from a chat with the tutee and parents/carers, I also like to pose the tutee several other problems to help me identify other areas that may require attention but are not at the forefront. I use a variety of approaches to my tutoring from past exam papers, to worksheets to everyday examples the tutee can relate to. I strive to develop the tutees thinking ability without just teaching them how to cram and remember facts. I am an extremely organised person and I will also help establish a suitable study plan and schedule to help the tutee realise his/her educational goals. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.
