I have a strong interest in the Life Sciences and have completed a BSc (Hons) degree in Zoology at Swansea University, an MSc in Biological Diversity at Plymouth University, a PGCE for the FE sector, as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in Biological Recording with Manchester Metropolitan University.
I have a passion for teaching and enjoy explaining difficult concepts in a one to one tuition environment. I am very patient and an open to hearing exacting what the learner would like to gain more knowledge and confidence on. I put a strong focus on discovering the areas of the syllabus that need more practice.
I have six years teaching experience in schools as well as at both Further Education and HIgher Education level. I have taught on a wide variety of courses which include;
• A Level Biology
• A Level Environmental Studies
• International Baccalaureate
• National Diploma in Lab, Medical and Forensic Science
• Access to Science
• GCSE Biology and Geography
• Zoology and Animal Sciences at degree level.
Before starting tuition I assess the needs of the individual learner and the subject area where more knowledge and skill is needed. I always provide work booklets as a break down to each subject, including objectives, introductory activities, questions at the level required to discuss and work through as well as past exam paper questions.
Tuition is open to student needs so don't be afraid to say exactly what subject area and skill you feel you need to work on.
