Tell us a bit about yourself.

Working with young people within all science subjects is my passion and I am focused on ensuring they meet targets, become confident learners and are ready to progress to the next stage of their education. Many students in key year groups need bespoke support to meet those targets following disruption to their education and this need is essential within my planning. I have experience of teaching in all types of school, all student abilities as well as examining at both GCSE and Advanced level. I have a BSc in Biochemistry and Masters degree. I am a current examiner. My experience enables students to see a difficult subject become not only easy but enjoyable. I know how to make the demanding become clear and help students find the confidence to not only ask those demanding questions but answer them for themselves. Helping shape resilience and character in a young person is fundamental to the role of tutor. I have taught thousands of students who found the success they thought was elusive!

What do you specialise in?

I specialise in Chemistry, Physics and Biology to GCSE at all levels and have been an examiner for both GCSE and A level with a number of exam boards. I also have many years working with students with a range of learning needs. I have huge experience in working with students who lack confidence in their abilities. My aim is to make the complex indescribably simple unlocking potential along the way. Success is a blend of learning, confidence and enjoying the challenge. Guiding students to success must be the goal of every teacher.

How do your lessons usually plan out?

Planning lessons is fascinating. You want to get the best from your student so you have to initiate their interest at the start, relate it to their understanding and enable to understand the fundamentals of the topic. Then you need to explore the detailed content together, but always be prepared to re-shape the lesson and give the student a chance to explore in their own way. Students are unique and lesson planning must take that into account. Their own life experiences and understanding are often keys to unlock what appears to be too challenging. It never is of course - and finding that Eureka moment is such a buzz for student and teacher.

What do students love most about your teaching style?

Finding that buzz together and bringing the confidence to the lesson is fantastic. When the learning takes off students know that you get them and how they learn. There is a real dialogue and respect between teacher and student and misconceptions are explored and removed. Success really does become infectious and student feels - sometimes for the first time - that they can really do this!

What is your favourite thing about being a tutor?

Enabling a student to achieve that target grade, supporting them to make it happen and going the extra mile for each student I work with. Success is infectious!
