A bit about Rosie W

I specialise in Biology - specifically in Wildlife Biology, but due to my confidence in Maths, I enjoy the challenges Physics and Chemistry can also bring. At the moment, as a teacher, I teach Biology, Chemistry and Physics to a range of students, ranging from Triple Science to Foundation Combined Science. I love that Science links to everyday aspects of life. When you can link scientific concepts to processes or questions people have about normal everyday objects, there is no better feeling of seeing their amazement. I am currently teaching under the AQA exam board for GCSE (Years 9-11), while also teaching Y7 and Y8 the fundamentals and basics of Science. My teachers always looked like they loved their job. They were passionate and found interesting ways to teach us tricky concepts in Science, and I loved the idea of seeing students have that ‘lightbulb’ moment. Outside of teaching, I have a two year old Miniature Schnauzer who loves attention and trips out to the park and the New Forest National Park. I also enjoy spending time outside myself in the garden, growing vegetables and tending to the garden. I have only started tutoring since 2021, but I love it! I enjoy the 1:1 sessions, and getting the know people and their strengths and challenges. There is so much enjoyment on working on something together and then seeing that lightbulb moment when it all seems to make sense. I like the "I do, We do, You do" apprach to teaching. I like to sit down and talk through questions/problems and show how I would approach the question or start an answer. I like to explain my thought process to help students understand how I got to certain ideas or points. I then like to do another example of a similar questions with the students and get them to tell me step by step how they would answer the question. Finally, I like them to complete something on their own (obviously I will help if needed). The ideas can then be repeated in more challenging questions to really embed the ideas, or we can go back to the "We do" approach and continue to work on things together. Students I teach often say that I explain concepts in ways they understand. I put this down to my own teachers at school, coming up with weird and crazy ways to help us remember things, and they have stuck with me, so I pass on those ideas! They say I also try and link it to real life whenever possible, so they see a purpose to understanding what they are being taught.
