Information About Suzanne - Stirling tutor - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Suzanne:
I have recently relocated back to Stirling after teaching in Manchester since 2012. I am enthusiastic about my subject and love the opportunity to unlock that passion in students.
I love sport and was delighted to be able to combine my love of sport and biology at University where I studied Sports Biomedicine. I continued to study physiology during a research masters in 2009. As a postgraduate student, I helped ran practical sessions and I realised my interest in teaching. I completed my PGCE in secondary science in 2012.
I am a confident and successful A-level/ Higher teacher of biology and teach all three sciences up to and GCSE/ National 5. Prior to my relocation to Stirling, I was working in a very large comprehensive school in Manchester. Working in such a large school with classes of mixed abilities and different special educational needs, I have become skilled at differentiation. This ensures a level of support and stretch and challenge appropriate for the individual pupils and their learning styles.
I am passionate about learning and want the tutees to get the most out of science. I like to create a comfortable environment so I can boost confidence and understanding. I spend time to find an approach that works for the students according to their individual needs and understanding. I am very patient and my lessons are relaxed and structured. I help the students to understand examination techniques to achieve the best possible results.

We all felt that Suzanne sessions were well structured and covered everything required. Our daughter felt she learnt more with Suzanne than her previous tutor and school combined. When the exams came there was no stress or panic but a quiet confidence that she was as prepared as you could be and this was due to Suzanne who also inspired confidence and belief in yourself.
She was always punctual and seemed to stay that little bit longer. She always gave us feedback after a session and this was always in her own time. We instantly found her trustworthy and had no hesitation in leaving her alone in the house with our daughter. As the exams came closer she provided great flexibility in providing some extra sessions.
We wish we had found her earlier and would not hesitate to recommend her-she was excellent. We have recommended her to a friend who used her and immediately contacted us to thank us as she was also very impressed and grateful to have found her.
