Personal Message
I am a full time, professional science tutor, with experience tutoring a range of ages and abilities. I am friendly, patient and have a good sense of humour! I am married to an Anaesthetist and we have two children.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I tutor all three sciences at GCSE level and Biology at A-level.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I graduated from Newcastle University with a BSc in Medical Microbiology and Immunology (First). I then went on to complete an MRes in Medical and Molecular Biosciences (distinction) and a PhD in Molecular Biology.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been tutoring and mentoring students since my time as a postgraduate student at university. I have tutored all ages and abilities, but specialise in tutoring A-Level Biology. Most of my students go on to study Medicine, Biosciences or Physiotherapy at university. As my husband is a doctor, I have insight into medical school applications and exams.
How much do you charge?
For 2018/2019 my fees are £30 for GCSE and £36 for A-level. It is sometimes more appropriate for A-level students to have 1 hour 30 minute lessons, the charge for this would be £45.
Where do you teach?
I predominantly teach online as I have two children. However, I am able to tutor in-person on a case-by-case basis.
When are you available?
Lessons can be booked between 9.30am - 3pm Monday to Friday (term time only), 8pm - 9pm Monday - Thursday and between 9.30am - 12.30pm on Saturdays. Popular time-slots fill up quickly.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach mainly A-level students, but am more than happy to teach GCSE/IGCSE if I have availability.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for GCSE/IGCSE and A-level exams.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a full enhanced DBS certificate and I am registered for the update service.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Tutoring takes place via Skype, with all lesson materials e-mailed to the student in advance of the lesson. Other than a computer with a good internet connection, microphone and webcam, no other equipment is necessary. Headphones are useful, but not essential.
Tell me about some of your current students.
I specialise in tutoring students who wish to study Medicine, Dentistry or Biosciences at university.
Do you have a personal message for students?
