I am 40 years old, married with three beautiful children. I am currently an A-level Biology examiner and have also examined GCSE Sciences.

Tutoring Experience

I have been teaching all three sciences at GCSE and Biology at A-level since 2002. I am currently an A-level examiner for Biology and examine papers 2 & 3 (including the essay). I have held this role with the exam board for the past 9 years. I have also examined various GCSE science papers and moderated Science GCSE coursework. I am currently Head of Science at a local school.

Tutoring Approach

I am an enthusiastic teacher with a passion for developing others as well as myself. I am friendly, but assertive and will expect the best from you. I will use a variety of diagnostic tests to determine your strengths and weaknesses and tailor your sessions to meet your needs. I have excellent subject knowledge and a wealth of resources to get you back on track. Do you have problems with your exam technique? Or are you worried about your synoptic essay? Being an examiner, I can help you drill down into the questions so that you gain a greater insight into what is expected of you. I will also help and support you with regards your approach to studying and revision to ensure that you are using your time effectively. Whether you need regular sessions or a few hours intensive help, I am sure I can help you raise your grade.
The first session is free and will generally be a conversation between the student, parent/s and myself to determine what the issues are and plan ahead.
