Personal Description:

I am a 40 year old female having worked in Research Science for over 15 years. I completed my doctoral training in Molecular Biology at Leeds University and then traveled to the US to work for their government at the National Institute of Health. Here I worked on elucidating the mechanisms behind the genetics of aging. After 5 productive years in the US I returned home to take a contract position with King's College, London working on developing a novel method of Gene Targeting. I am looking to take my career in a new direction and am considering undertaking a PGCE teaching course which would allow me to teach at Secondary schools.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had extensive experience teaching students from my doctoral training days until my last post as a Post Doctoral Research Associate at King's College, London. I have mentored and trained students from undergraduate level to Ph. D level throughout my 15 years of science. In addition, I have lectured students in their final year undergraduate year. I have privately worked with tutees for the past three years. I tutor Early Learning support, KS 1, 2 and 3 English, Maths and Science, Exam Preparation literacy and numeracy skills, GCSE/IGCSE Biology/Science, AS and A Level Biology and Higher Education/Adult Education Biology. I have tutored students engaged in many different courses including a Massage Course (Physiology and Anatomy), medical students (Imperial College-outstanding firsts!) and Nursing and Midwifery (Greenwich-98% Biology modules). My last A level student went from a predicted U to A in her tutored module (OCR-June 2012)

Tutoring Approach:

I have found teaching to be most beneficial when I am working with my students on a one-to-one basis. This allows me to really understand what my student needs and tailor my tutoring and mentoring to this effect.

I also find teaching with visual aids and innovative tools an effective method of teaching some aspects of science. Tutoring at this level builds trust and confidence in my students so they are able to work with me on the areas they need most. I believe this trust is important in progressing and obtaining the most out of tutoring.

I can provide a bespoke tutoring and development program where I can tailor tasks and activities for each student to maximize their learning, revision and exam preparation.
