Personal Description:

I grew up in Stoke-on-Trent and studied Biology and English Literature at Keele University. I moved to Middlesbrough for two years when I was 21 and then to Bath for six years. In 2011 I went to Colombia for six months to teach at an international school. I had a great time there, but decided to return to the UK to study. I did a masters degree in last year in Cell and Tissue Engineering and I am now doing a PhD in Regenerative Medicine. I enjoy travelling, sports, camping, watching live music, going to festivals, going to the theatre and reading (especially Russian literature and anything from around the time of the world wars). I am also learning Spanish…

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught GCSE Science (all three subjects, but mostly Chemistry in recent years) for eight years. I have taught A-level Biology on a one-to-one basis for the past three years.
I have a a 20 hour TEFL qualification.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all I find out what my student's needs are. If I know what level they are working at and which exam board they are following, I will familiarise myself with the specification before I meet the student. I would use the specification to devise a diagnostic self-evaluation sheet, which can be used in the first session. During the first session I would work with them to identify which aspects of the curriculum require the most work and we would make an outline plan together for the remaining sessions. During a typical lesson I would teach the relevant content for that lesson using a range of strategies (discussion, questioning, games, worksheets) and would assess the student's progress throughout the lesson and at the end of the session with past exam questions, exercises, quizzes or simple question and answer techniques.
