Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am an experienced teacher with a passion for supporting others in their learning. I understand the pressures students are under today, and can work with you to create a learning plan that suits your needs and goals. Outside of tutoring, I love being outside in nature, usually at the beach or exploring the mountains. If I'm not out adventuring, you'll find me lost in a good book!

What do you specialise in?

Having studied both Zoo Conservation and Ecology at university, I specialise in Biology. I am fully qualified to teach all Sciences, as well as Health and Social Care, and Child Development. I have also undergone extensive training in mentoring and supporting young people with their mental health. I am very aware that if our mental health isn't supported, then learning won't happen. Working with my students, I will always create an individual learning plan which will be able to be adapted to your needs and goals.

When did you first start tutoring?

I have been tutoring for over 10 years, both online and offline. I am grateful for the changes in technology which allow us to connect online in such interactive ways.

How do your lessons usually plan out?

Usually my lessons would begin with a wellbeing check and quick catch-up on the previous week, answering any questions that might have arisen between sessions. We would perhaps do a short game or quiz as a recap and refresh. Then there would be time for new knowledge - whether this is a discussion, a research task or a short video, there would be opportunity for us to explore elements that are of interest to you. Depending on your goals, we may also do some exam questions to build familiarity with questions and mark schemes, as well as checking understanding.

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy? That everyone should be able to enjoy learning! While exams can be important, it is just as important to create space to explore the elements that capture your interest.

What exam boards and year groups do you teach?

I have experience teaching; WJEC, AQA, Edexcel and OCR exam boards. I teach KS3, KS4 and KS5.

What are your interests outside of teaching?

Outside of teaching I love walking in the mountains, yoga and meditation, and reading anything I can get my hands on!
