Fun, young & creative teacher for sciences with a biology specialism!
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
My name is Jed Flint, I have 4 years experience teaching science with children aged 11-18 years old. I completed my undergraduate degree in medical sciences from the University of Leeds in 2013. following this I worked within a variety of clinical settings before completing my PGCE is secondary science at the University of Nottingham in 2015. I am currently in the process of aiming to be an educational psychologist, I have completed my Masters degree from the University of Stirling and I am in the process of applying for my doctorate. I specialise in biology teaching, I am able to teach this up to A-level and I can extend this to include some basic degree level content as well. I am confident teaching physics and chemistry GCSE foundation levels as well as combined/general science for all ages as well. I use multimedia, creative approaches and innovative ideas to convey scientific concepts and improve students understanding. I have access to a wealth of exam questions as well to help prepare for examinations and revision techniques. I previously taught on AQA and OCR exam boards in England. I am able to teach both higher and foundation levels for the sciences at GCSE. I can teach higher content and I have experience doing this, however I also have experience specifically working with foundation level students trying to achieve pass grades.
Biology up to a level. BTEC applied science level 3 biology modules and physics wave modules. Chemistry up to GCSE. Physics up to GCSE. Psychology up to a level.
Introduction and links to previous learning. Context setting. Relevance to specification/syllabus. Learning task. Consolidation. Assessment of task. Assessment of task 2. Conclusion and summary. I like using graphics, quizzes, animations, videos and other multimedia to help explain scientific concepts.
Learning is like riding a bike. You may fall down initially and struggle to learn, however with practice, determination and resilience you will eventually learn. In the same way when you rode a bike you probably fell down the first time and struggled the first few times to ride the bike successfully.
