Hello, my name is Marc and I am currently a Biology teacher at a prestigious boarding school in Rutland. As such, my weekday commitments during term time prevent me from tutoring on weekday evenings. Half-terms and breaks are numerous, so please get in touch to find my availability.
I hold an M.Sc. in Immunology from the University of Oxford and have a PGCE in secondary science education from Roehampton University.
Although Biology is my main passion, I have taught all three sciences to GCSE.
I also offer one-to-one academic essay / dissertation tutoring which includes proofreading. In these sessions, we can analyse the structure and content of your work prior to submission so that your ideas and research are presented in the best possible way.
I currently have over 8 years' experience tutoring and teaching biology at A level and I.B. level here in the UK. I have taught in both the state and private sector from KS3 to KS5.
I have also previously tutored with a London-based Oxbridge tutoring agency, and at OWL Education in Southall.
I have a good familiarity with and have taught most exam boards (e.g. AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC) at GCSE, iGCSE, AS and A2 level.
I also have experience in tutoring English essay composition, and have taught Immunology, Developmental Biology, Cellular Biology & Gross Anatomy to degree level whilst doing my undergraduate degree in Bangkok and my postgraduate degree at Oxford.
I like to make learning as much fun as possible. Engaging with the tutee is my main aim. I am a firm believer in visual aids and analogies and try to incorporate that into my lessons. I take pride in my quizzes which check to make sure the tutee is on the right track. Past paper questions are a definite must when it comes to improving exam technique so I tend to structure my lessons around them.
I aim to provide bespoke lessons and will cater to each student specifically, as each individual's needs are different.
