Passionate biology teacher, bringing understanding and making learning fun!
I am fully qualified with a BSc in Biology (1st Class Hons) as well as a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. Before teaching I worked for various industrial companies as a microbiologist. Therefore I completely understand how biology can be applied to a specific working environment.
I have had 10 years of teaching experience, covering all exam boards and my teaching will always be informed by the most current specification.
Experienced in tutoring Biology and Human Biology A level, biological modules of BTEC, Biology GCSE/IGCSE, and biological components of Health and Social Care, Access to Higher Education and Open University courses.
In the 2018 exams, my A level students achieved 2 grades higher than predicted, my GCSE student gained a 9, my adult Access student gained a distinction and another student achieved his dream of being selected for medical school.
I have an innovative style using visual aids, power points, practical experiments, videos, games etc. Biology is all around us and I will teach you to explore, wonder at and grasp the basic concepts..... as well as the detail. Willing to check through marked exam papers and offer informed exam technique advice.
I believe that by encouragement and confidence building, students can indeed achieve their potential. This is what I strive to achieve by tutoring and love to see happen.
