Personal Description:

Science teacher at an OFSTED outstanding Kingston school. I currently have no availability, however, you are welcome to contact me with enquiries and I will post updates of any changes throughout the academic year.

I provide students with fully up-to-date, appropriate tuition for the new 1-9 Grade GCSEs and I am currently teaching:
GCSE Biology (Yr 9-11: Double and Triple awards at both Higher and Foundation levels)
AS Biology (Yr 12)
KS3 General Science (Yr 7-8: Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
ISEB Science for Common Entrance (13+)

Tutoring Experience:

Secondary Science teacher (from 2003)
Private tutor of Science (from 2013)
Primary School teaching experience (during 2014)
Pharmaceutical Marketing and Advertising (from 1992: career prior to teaching)
2.1 BSc Hons Applied Biology (1992)
PGCE/QTS (2003)

Tutoring Approach:

I am well-practised in a host of teaching strategies which I tailor to each student's individual needs. I have tutored GCSE Biology for students taking their exams with various exam boards and have extensive knowledge of current specifications. Having previously worked in a Primary School, I can support younger students with the transition to secondary school and nurture a passion for the subject. Prior to teaching, my love of science and creativity enabled me to have a fulfilling career in the Pharmaceutical Industry where I specialised in Marketing and Creative Advertising. This experience is one of the things that I believe enables me to bring science to life for many young people.

I love my vocation and feel incredibly privileged to be able to support and help students to achieve their goals and their potential both in a classroom setting and in 1:1 tuition.

Please feel free to contact me with enquiries.
