Information About Theresa - Dundee tutor - (3 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Theresa:
I am a teacher of Physics in Dundee. I studied Physics at the University of Glasgow and then followed this with my PGDE teaching qualification, also at the University of Glasgow, the following year. I am experienced in tutoring and have received very good results and positive feedback from my tutees over the past 8 years.
I am a marker for the SQA at National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels which allows me to give pupils an insight into the marking process and understand the standard of work required to pass their exam.
Nine years of teaching Physics at Standard Grade, National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels.
Eight years of tutoring pupils at Standard Grade, National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels.
I generally start with some form of revision quiz covering the course content that the pupil is currently working on in class. This helps to identify development needs. We can then work through some theory work to enhance understanding or attempt some SQA level questions. I find that working on Problem Solving questions greatly improves pupils grades. Towards exam time I work solely on past paper questions with the tutee being provided with one paper per week which I mark according to SQA marking instructions and go over any mistakes in detail. I will provide all required resources such as text books and past paper questions.

I wanted to thank you for all your help with Freya, who- I am very happy to say- got an 'A' today.
I am trying to leave a review, but this seems to be the only way of doing so. On that basis, I offer the following:
"My daughter was having difficulty with some aspects of the Higher Physics course and Theresa was asked to help towards the end of the course at very short notice. She worked out very quickly what the issues were and tutored in such a way that my daughter felt she understood what was going on, rather than just learned how to pass an exam. She got an ‘A’.
I thoroughly recommend Theresa."
Again, thank you very much. I wish you all the best for the future.
All the best to you both.
