Experienced and qualified biology teacher with an excellent academic background.
I am passionate about science and education. In addition to completing a PGCE and having qualified teacher status (QTS), I hold a PhD in Ecology, an MSc degree (Distinction) and a BSc degree (First). I have over eight years of experience teaching Science and Biology at GCSE and A-Level. While I am more than happy to teach Science, my specialism is A-level biology and I have worked as an A-level examiner for ten years. As a private tutor I have taught students studying a range of exam boards, including AQA, OCR and WJEC. I am driven to help all students achieve their potential and have successfully supported students as they apply to University including Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Oxbridge candidates. I believe in the power of education and that lessons should be engaging, challenging and student-centered. My lessons were consistently deemed as outstanding and I consider myself an enthusiastic, friendly and effective teacher.
I like to prepare my tutoring session so that we can use the time wisely and concentrate on your areas of concern. Contact me with the name of the specification you are studying (e.g. AQA GCSE Biology/EDUQAS A-Level Biology) and include a list of areas/topics you would like to focus on. I can also provide lessons and tips on how to revise effectively and on how to improve exam technique. I look forward to meeting you and helping you improve your grades.
