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.
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.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a BSc(Hons) in Analytical Chemistry and Toxicology, a First Class Honours BSc in Forensic Investigation and a Post Graduate Certificate of Education in Secondary Science. I am currently studying for a PhD in Criminal Justice at Canterbury Christ Church University.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been a teacher for 18 years teaching Science, specialising in Chemistry with special educational needs experience. I have also taught IGCSE and IB in a top international school in Peru. I have 6 years tutoring experience online and at home. I am a sessional lecturer in Forensic Investigation at Canterbury Christ Church University.
How much do you charge?
I charge £35 per hour for KS2 and KS3, £40 for GCSE, A-level, IB and University level. As I believe anyone can learn with the right support I may reduce fees for students with special educational needs and/or disabilities. I also provide group tutoring at reduced rates. These prices are for home tutoring including 30 minutes travel. Online Tutoring rates are less, please enquire.
Where do you teach?
I teach at students homes within the East Kent area including Canterbury, Herne Bay, Whitstable, Margate, Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Faversham. I am happy to travel further to Ashford, Dover and Folkestone with added fuel and time costs. Online tutoring can be anywhere!

Where and with whom did you train?

Tell me about some of your current students.
I currently am tutoring international students IGCSE and IB chemistry and AS Biology online, online students in the UK doing GCSE Biology, Physics and Chemistry, A-level biology, chemistry and physics, an Undergraduate chemistry student online, plus students at their homes around the canterbury area for KS3, GCSE Science, GCSE Applied Science and A Level and IB Chemistry and Biology. Some students are home educated so I also help with completion of practical coursework.
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.
