Scarborough Tutor

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.
