Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified, experience Science teacher with a current CRB check. Science is life! I love all aspects of science, but am especially passionate about Biology, and can help to inspire anybody. Research shows that one-to-one teaching hugely improves pupils attainment, let me impart to you the benefit of my knowledge and experience, and improve your outcomes and future options.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught in secondary schools in London and Surrey for 5 years. I have more than 6 years experience of private tutoring from KS3 to A Level. I have taught OCR, AQA, WJEC and Edexel biology syllabi. I have a proven track record of enabling pupil progress. My Masters degree in Teaching enabled me to expand upon the theories of learning begun in the PGCE, and has helped me to develop a well focussed style of teaching, using AFL (assessment for learning) strategies among others. I incorporate activities that allow me to make ongoing informal assessments of pupil progress, and am able to employ different approches depending upon individual need. I integrate exam strategy and practice into all sessions, as I am also an experienced examiner, I know what gets marks in exams!

Tutoring Approach:

I can tailor tutoring sessions to the individual needs of every pupil. I like to make targets at the start of tutoring, so we both know what we are aiming to achieve. I like to use active learning activities, and focus on the use of keywords and understanding their usage (this is what gets you marks in exams), and also being able to explain ideas and concepts without notes. I will develop resources with a pupil, depending on stage of learning and individual targets, and coach techniques for successful review and revision of learning. I also use past exams papers, and run through mark schemes with pupils, so pupils become aware of correct exam procedure, and in what areas marks are commonly missed.
