Personal Description:

I am a qualified science teacher, often working as a supply teacher in secondary schools.

I also have 25 years of teaching experience in Higher Education and Further Education - I was a Senior Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Cardiff and also at the University of South Australia, with physical and computational chemistry as my research speciality (65 published research papers). More recently I taught Chemistry at the University of Surrey. Teaching A-Level physics, chemistry and mathematics tutoring has long been a sideline for me even before I qualified as a school teacher.

I am also a CELTA qualified and experienced teacher of English as a Foreign Language (EFL), English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and Business English (5 years of EFL teaching experience gained in the UK, in Germany, in Poland and in Australia). I spend most Summers teaching EAP at Leicester University. So if you require A-Level science tuition and English is not your first language then perhaps I should be your first choice.

I am a British, native English speaker who has worked in several countries; I speak fluent German and intermediate Polish. I am based in Stoneygate, but I will travel to most locations within the city of Leicester at no extra charge to you. However, if the round trip exceeds 15 miles then am additional £5 travel surcharge will apply.

Tutoring Experience:

General chemistry and physical chemistry at BSc/MChem level. Theoretical chemistry at MSc level.
A-Level private tuition of physics, chemistry and mathematics. EAP/EFL teacher and Business English teacher/consultant in the UK, Germany and in Australia.

PGCE-qualified Science Teacher who frequently works as a supply teacher in, in addition to spells of University teaching and running her own educational and consultancy business.

Tutoring Approach:

Science: a flexible, guided approach, giving the student the maximum hands-on time for problem
solving during the tutorial.

English: Speaking practice, grammar, techniques for listening and understanding … you can decide on
the focus of each lesson.
