I'm 33 years old. I currently teach Science to students up to the age of 16 in Scarborough. I studied Pharmacology at the University of Newcastle, graduating 12 years ago and going on to to complete a PGCE in Science (Biology) at Nottingham Trent University.
I am from Scarborough originally and so I know the area well, I will be happy to tutor students in my own home or elsewhere. My hobbies include reading, football, going to the gym, cycling and music/films.
Below are some of the skill sets I would hope to pass on to students...
■ Reading between the lines
■ Deciding how to tackle a problem
■ Seeing how to break a task down
■ Generating ideas
■ Organising ideas
■ Identifying the main points
■ Checking and self-correction strategies
■ Securing concepts
■ Pattern spotting
■ Identifying relationships
■ Articulating reasons and giving explanations
■ Risk taking
■ Making mistakes without fear of failure
