- Personal Message
- Hello, my name is Hellen and I am passionate about learning! I believe everyone has the ability to achieve in Science and that in doing so they will learn valuable skills for life.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
- I tutor online using an online interactive whiteboard such as dabbleboard or scribblar and via Skype to tutor interactively just as I would face to face. All that is needed is a computer and headset. I am also a registered tutor with Home Tutoring Online @ www.hometutoringonline.com through which online lessons can be booked with me (an agency fee applies).
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
- I tutor Science at KS2 and KS3 and can prepare students for National Curriculum (SAT's) tests. I teach GCSE Applied Science, Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics and can help with coursework and exam preparation, I can also tutor IGCSE students in these subjects. At A-Level I teach Chemistry and Biology and also tutor for International Baccalaureate Chemistry. Due to my degree specialism in Chemistry I tutor students following a Chemistry related University course, I also provide help with essay and assignment writing and research and will proofread prepared work before submission. I also do a short science and maths update course for students following a Science orientated degree who did not do an A Level in that area, or who just wish to recap.

Some students are home educated so I also help with completion of practical coursework. I also teach GCSE science at Lernejo School in Canterbury.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
- Everyone has the ability to learn, it is just a matter of finding the right way for you to do it and that is my job! Self-esteem is a key to achieving so if you need this boosting I will focus on this which will lead to increased motivation and better grades. Learning is not just passing exams, but is also a process of gaining life skills. The key to passing exams is not just having the correct knowledge but learning exam technique to help you get what you know across to the examiner and more marks.
