Having taught for 8 years in schools, I have now become a full-time Tutor. My passion is helping others understand and appreciate the wonders of science. I have assisted numerous students in realising their potential and achieving top grades
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Biology, Chemistry and Physics to IGCSE/GCSE level. Chemistry and Biology to A2 and IB level.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a BSc (Hons) in Molecular Biology and Qualified Teacher Status.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching for 8 years in secondary schools in the U.K. and abroad. The first school I taught in was a struggling school with children with a range of abilities. Then I moved to Singapore and taught in an international school with a wide range of students from those that needed learning support to those that had won prestigious scholarships to attend the school. In Singapore I taught the IGCSE and the IB.

I have been successfully tutoring and homeschooling students for 4 years.

I am also an Eponaquest instructor which means that I use exercises with horses to help students increase their self confidence, self awareness and communication with others.

£50 per hour for A-Level and IB
£50 per hour for GCSE

Tell me about some of your current students.
I have a variety of students at the moment. Some are aged 12-13 and are needing help in understanding Science at school. Then I have a number of students studying for their GCSEs and IGCSEs in Science. Finally I have students studying Chemistry A-Level (OCR A and B, AQA and Edexcel), Biology A-Level (Edexcel, AQA and OCR) and IB Chemistry. Abilities range from those who have been struggling to those who wish to achieve A grades at A-Level for university courses.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Even the most confusing Science can be made accessible if approached from a different way. The key is to unlock your learning style so that you can understand the way in which you can learn best!
