Science can be fun and you can achieve whatever you put your mind to!
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I am a qualified Science teacher with a passion to help students succeed. I especially have a love for those who really struggle and I strive to build confidence in the areas where students lack. I have a background in face to face teaching but I have also taught sessions online. I am patient and like to have fun while we learn!
Biology but I can also teach Physics. My style of teaching is student centred and I specialise in ensuring that students feel confident before progressing to the next topic.
Students achieve learning outcomes by the end of the lesson and are not afraid to ask if I can repeat trouble areas the following session.
I love Science because it helps us understand the world around. It can be an intimidating subject but I have found many ways of simplifying it for students to enjoy and understand.
My teaching style is very visual and focused on engaging the factual recall side of the mind. I try to help students find ways to remember the content by using memorable analogies or quirky rhymes and images.
I enjoy seeing the progress made by students when they are first struggling with a topic and when that first moment they understand. I enjoy hearing the excitement when they pass a test!
Students all learn, we as educators have to find the way each student learns!
I am approachable and they can ask any questions. The tutoring session is their time.
The greatest success I have had is helping a student who hated Physics and failed previous tests to pass on his next test.
I have a PGCE in Secondary Education and Bachelor of Science Honours Degree in Bioscience.
I had a amazing science teacher and I was very inspired by how she was able to increase my interest in Science. I also wanted to work with young people and enjoyed the subject very much.
I enjoy music, art and cooking.
