Personal Description:

I am now semi-retired, having previously been Head of Biology and Head of Science in a grammar school and sixth form centre.
I have a degree in Human Biology from Oxford Brookes and attended medical school in Southampton for a year before deciding that this was not for me. I took my PGCE at London University Institute of Education, originally teaching Biology and Integrated Science. Once I started teaching, I knew that this was the right choice and have enjoyed all the different roles I have played.

I have 2 dogs and 3 cats.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 30 years teaching experience, at all levels from primary to degree. My specialist subject is Biology, which I have taught extensively up to A level and in first year undergraduate courses, but I also taught in Special Needs for several years. I have taught a variety of subjects in addition to Biology and have experience of working as a Home Tutor for my local education authority. I have been a Teaching and Learning Coach for other teachers.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to create a calm, friendly atmosphere in which students are not afraid to ask questions and try out ideas. I use a wide range of resources and can adapt my teaching to suit the learner's individual style; the teaching will respond to the particular needs of the student. I generally tutor in my home so as to have a range of resources available and I aim to make learning as enjoyable as possible whilst achieving the desired outcome.
