I am a very enthusiastic and approachable tutor with over 25 years experience of teaching GCSE Science and A level Biology. It is important to me to understand what my tutees need I build on the existing knowledge of my tutees and help them to solidify their understanding and then apply it to a range of situations. As a marker for both exams I know exactly what is needed for success and believe that being able to interpret questions and select appropriate knowledge is essential to exam success.
I have a BSc Hons Agricultural Environmental Science from Newcastle University and studied for a research degree at the Department of Botany at Liverpool University. My teaching qualification (PGCE Science and Biology) was gained from the University of Leeds. I have been tutoring GCSE Science and A-level Biology for over 6 years in both 1 to 1 and small group settings. I have current experience as a GCSE and A-level examiner for a number of different UK examination boards and international examinations.
