Fareham Tutor

My passion is exploring life and the world around us, and when teaching Science I aim to enthuse my pupils with the wonders of our world. Science is an exciting subject with many challenges and unanswered questions that I love to explore.

I really enjoy teaching - to me it is about helping learners to learn and discover things for themselves, and to give them a sense of achievement and purpose.

My hobbies include horse riding, being out in the countryside, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.

Tutoring Experience

For the past two years I have been a part-time GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics teacher in a local school as well as tutoring in AS/A2 Level Biology (all syllabuses) and all GCSE Sciences (full-time since January 2011).

I qualified as a Science teacher in 2002. Since then I have taught A level Biology in Wiltshire for a year, carried out supply teaching in a range of subjects and spent a great five years teaching in a Portsmouth school where I taught all of the Sciences to GCSE (Sept 2005-July 2010), including taking responsibility for the Separate Science groups in the school.

I always ran popular after school revision classes, and had many pupils come to me throughout the school day for help and support in addition to my interactive lessons with them.

I spent 4 months teaching A Level Chemistry and KS3 Science in a school in Gran Canaria (Autumn/Winter 2010).

I am also a Marking Examiner for GCSE BIology and GCSE Science, which helps me to explain to pupils what examiners are looking for in answers!

Tutoring Approach

I have an open, supportive, flexible approach to explaining any topics required, to boost your confidence, understanding and enthusiasm of the science subjects. I use exam questions with you as part of a structured revision programme, as I feel this proves to be one of the best methods of improving grades.
