Personal Description:

I have a BSc and PhD in Biochemistry from King's College London and teach Biology (KS3-A2) and Chemistry (KS3-A2) in an independent school in London. Before entering teaching I spent 18 years in breast cancer research at Imperial College Medical School.

I qualified as a Chemistry teacher, being trained at a boys grammar school in Kingston. I have taught Biology and Chemistry up to 'A' level in both the independent and state sector, in single sex and mixed schools and in both grammar and all ability schools.
I am in my fifties with two children,one recently graduated in History and the other is studying Theoretical Physics.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught at all levels from Year 7- A2 in secondary schools:
Chemistry and Biology (Year 7- A2 Level) and Physics (Years 7-11).
I have extensive experience with the AQA syllabuses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics and I currently teach OCR Biology GCSE and 'A' Level and OCR GCSE Chemistry and OCR Salters A2 Chemistry.
I have tutoring experience in all three sciences up to GCSE on the AQA, OCR, Edexcel and iGCSE syllabuses, A2 in Biology on the AQA, OCR and Edexcel syllabuses and A2 Chemistry on the OCR Salters Syllabus.
I have also lectured at both King's and Imperial Colleges in Biochemistry and Cell Biology and supervised everything from BSc through to PhD projects.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very relaxed and patient approach to tutoring, as I believe this serves the interests of the pupils well and they work best when in this environment.
I use a range of traditional teaching aids, powerpoints, books and handouts, as well as some internet sites to assist understanding.
I have access to a full range of past papers and mark schemes.
