I am a 35 year old PhD student with some years teaching and tutoring experience at both secondary school and uni level. I have experience of tutoring all the GCSE sciences and all the exam boards.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach all the sciences, Geography and History at GCSE, at A-Level I tutor Geography, Biology, Chemistry and Geology.

This year I am also offering A-Level Science Prep Sessions. These are available over the summer break (July-Sept) and aim to bridge the daunting gap between GCSE and A Level Science study. Please enquire for availability (rate: £35 p/h).
Tell me about your qualifications.
After getting good grades at GCSEs and A-Level (Biology, Geography, English) I went on to study Earth Sciences. I have a degree in Palaeobiology and Evolution, as well as postgraduate qualifications in Tectonics (PgCert) and Earth Science Research Techniques (MSc). I am currently engaged in a PhD to understand the tectonics of central Greece and the Mediterranean region.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been tutoring Key Stage 4 (GCSEs) as well as AS/A Level for 5 years. I work with students studying under the major exam boards, AQA, Edexcel, and OCR and am familiar with what examiners from these boards are looking for, which can really differ.I provide a student-tutor led syllabus based approach. This involves careful assessment of student strengths and weaknesses as compared to the syllabus being covered before carefully targeted support based on a combination of tutorial exercise sessions, homework and exam drilling.

I also teach university level geology and earth sciences (past 4 years).
How much do you charge?
I charge £35 per hour for GCSE and £45 for A-Level.Where working with two or more students I charge a base rate (£35 for GCSE, £45 for A level) and £15 per additional student. I have tutored two students at a time, and it can work well if the students are studying the same syllabus and have a good relationship.
Where do you teach?
I teach in and around Haringey, including, Wood Green, Hornsey, Highgate, Finsbury Park, Palmers Green, Bounds Green, Enfield, Waltham Forest, Crouch End,and Alexandra Palace.
I also teach in Islington, so Holloway, Archway, Essex Road, Cannonbury, Highbury.
Northern parts of Hackney that I teach in include, Clapton, Stamford Hill, Stoke Newington and Dalston.
When are you available?
Currently very busy indeed. Most likely with some more availability after the exam period is over. I am taking bookings for the summer holiday period and the next academic year (2015-2016) also, please feel free to enquire.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
14yrs - Adult.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
GCSE, AS/A2-Level.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes. I have an enhanced CRB from November 2011, which I can produce on request.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I am a fellow of the Geological Society of London.
I am a member of the Palaeontological Association and the International Sedimentologists Association.
I am an associate of the Geologists's Association.
