GCSE, A Level Biology tutor offering Biology tutoring in Winchester, Hampshire

£120.00Academic tutor

I read Biology at Sheffield University then for a Masters degree in Biotechnology at UEA. After working in research I did a PGCE and then began teaching A level Biology in Sixth Form Colleges. I teach full time at a top rated sixth form college (where I have been working for the last 23 years). The Biology department is grade 1 (Outstanding), as were my lessons in a recent OFSTED. My classes have achieved in the top 1% of A-level Biology Sixth form college classes nationally for value added results. Very many students have achieved full marks in exams and gained place to read medicine. Students that I have tutored have gone from a D at AS to a A at A-level and from a C to an A*. My explanation of concepts and going through exam questions was a small part of their improvement, a far greater part was helping them to change their approach to learning and taking greater responsibility. As a current teacher I am very aware of the shift in emphasis and the different skills required for the new (for 2017) specification A levels. With over 20 years experience of teaching just A level Biology, I have an in-depth knowledge of the OCR A, Eduqas, Edexcel, AQA and Pre-U specifications.

Maths and science tutoring from an Oxford University trained physicist with a PhD and real world, schools and tutoring experience (DBS checked). >>>Energetic and approachable, I focus first on conceptual understanding, then problem solving and exam tips/techniques. ‘Understand the topic, be able to answer the questions.’ In this way, my first student (KS3) quickly improved from poor scores in science tests to marks over 90%, the highest in class, confirming my love of tutoring! >>>I mainly tutor up to GCSE in maths and all three sciences (qualified to at least A-level in all subjects), but also first-year A-level currently to help students 'plug any gaps' following an interrupted GCSE year, gain deeper insights into new knowledge/techniques, and transition to more independent ways of working. >>>As a first-generation Oxford student (from a solidly working class background), my proven ability to break the mould and forge new, challenging paths may provide additional inspiration, motivation and belief for some students. >>>Currently, I tutor online. In person may be available when Government guidelines allow, in line with 'COVID secure’ arrangements. >>>I adapt to each student’s individual needs, really care about my students and hope to enthuse with my genuine enjoyment of maths and science!
