About Me

My specialist subjects are Biology and Chemistry (up to A Level) and I also teach Physics and Mathematics (up to GCSE level). I am very enthusiastic about science and I am keen to foster good relationships with those I am teaching, ensure they are enjoying the learning experience and adapt my teaching methods to suit their needs.

Recent tuition

Please find a snapshot of my recent tuition experience below.

Combined Science GCSEs and Maths GCSE, AQA and Edexcel: 1 hour per week

This student is very capable but lacks focus and motivation to study. We complete exam-style questions and I take care to make her enthusiastic about science by sharing interesting stories and facts related to the lesson content.

Physics KS3/GCSE and Maths GCSE, AQA and Edexcel: 1 hour per week

This student finds her learning style is incompatible with her Physics teacher’s teaching style and so she struggles with certain topics. We revise topics she finds difficult and I test her with exam-style questions.

Physics KS3: Three hours over three weeks

This student was struggling with maths questions within KS3 Physics. We revised all the equations she had to know. I tested her understanding through exam-style questions and discussion.

Science GCSEs, OCR: One hour per week for nine weeks.

This student wanted additional support with exam technique and difficult topics. In lessons, he completed past paper questions with my supervision to improve his exam technique.

Science GCSEs, OCR: One hour per week for eight weeks.

This student was scoring poorly in his school science assessments. Each lesson I re-taught him a topic he found difficult, and then he completed past exam questions with my supervision. He went from a D to a high B in more than one school assessment.

Maths GCSE and Science GCSEs, Edexcel and AQA: Two hours per week for 23 weeks in both maths and science.

This student aspires to be a vet and so she was keen to achieve all A*s at GCSE. We ran through topics she found challenging and completed past exam questions as much as possible.

Maths GCSE, Edexcel: One hour per week for eight weeks.

This very bright student enjoys maths, however this was not being reflected in her grades. We ran through past exam questions as much as possible. Her mother commented that I was extremely helpful in improving her confidence in tests.

Maths GCSE, Edexcel: One hour per week for 11 weeks across the summer holidays.

This student had dropped down a set for Maths and wished to re-enter the top set. We identified the topics she found the most challenging and worked through past exam questions together. Her mother commented that I was the best maths tutor her daughter had ever had.

Maths GCSE, Edexcel: Two hours per week for ten weeks in the lead up to her GCSE exams.

We worked together to improve this student’s exam technique and understanding of basic mathematical concepts. We reviewed topics she already knew but did not feel confident with, and I also taught her a handful of topics from scratch, such as histograms and vectors. She went from C grades in her mock exams to achieving her target of a B in the final exam.

Science GCSEs, AQA: Two hours per week for nine weeks leading up to her GCSE exams.

This student had scored Cs in her mock exams and was keen to achieve Bs. She lacked confidence in exam conditions and how to effectively revise, and so we focused entirely on completing past exam papers together and study skills she would find helpful for improving her performance under exam conditions. She successfully achieved her target of Bs in her science GCSEs.

Chemistry A level, OCR: One hour per week for 19 weeks.

We ran through topics she found challenging, especially the more mathematical topics. We used a textbook additional to that given by her school which focuses on maths skills required for A level and ran through past exam questions. She was successful getting a place to study Biology at the Royal Veterinary College.

Chemistry and Biology A level, OCR: One hour per week.

This student is a high-performing pupil who aspires to go to a Russell Group university. We tackle topics she struggles with, especially maths-heavy topics.

Numeracy: 1-2 hours per week for two months.

This student was preparing to take graduate scheme aptitude tests. I taught him the required numeracy skills and tested him with practice tests.

GAMSAT: Ten hours over five days.

This BSc graduate was seeking to pass the GAMSAT to apply for Graduate Entry Medicine. We spent five hours on essay planning and writing, followed by five hours running through Chemistry and Physics practice questions.

GAMSAT: Five hours over five weeks.

This BA graduate was seeking to pass the GAMSAT to apply for Graduate Entry Medicine. I tested her understanding of science and maths topics with GAMSAT sample questions to improve her familiarity with the test format.

GAMSAT: Ten hours over two months

This student was a BA graduate seeking to pass the GAMSAT to apply for Graduate Entry Medicine. We covered essay writing, verbal reasoning, as well as Chemistry, Biology and Physics topics of similar difficulty to A level.

Nursing maths: Ad hoc

This student is a nurse who wishes to improve her mental math ability. In lessons, we revise secondary school level maths and complete practice questions.
