I help students who struggle with science improve their grades and pass GCSE & IGCSE science, through personalised 1:1 tutoring.
I am a Qualified Science Teacher (Biology & Chemistry specialist), with over thirteen years’ experience in academia and the education sector. My goal is simple - to help students who struggle with science develop confidence and pass their exams.
I am also familar with the IB-MYP program and have taught students following that curriculum.
I help children master the foundational concepts so that they can easily build upon their knowledge.
My lessons are interleaved with questions and other assessment tasks as well as frequent end of unit exam questions. All this helps to assess the child’s progress and improve memory retention and learning. Practising exam papers also helps consolidate learning and dissipate children’s fears around examinations.
My tutoring sessions are built largely around student’s weaknesses. I identify how each child learn best and teach them using more of that method. I also use everyday examples to explain key concepts which helps build confidence and increase the child’s love and understanding for the subject.
Over 4 years classroom teaching and tutoring experience with a focus on KS3, GCSE and IGCSE students.
I have worked with students from a range of backgrounds and abilities including tutoring students identified as underachieving. As a Qualified Teacher, I am fully conversant with all major exam boards (Edexcel, AQA, Cambridge and OCR). My specialism are Biology and Chemistry.

Sylvia has been teaching me for over two months now, she has helped me massively. She creates useful power points which include information related to topics I learn in class, leading me to feel confident and secure in my science lessons. I definitely recommend Sylvia for any student out there looking to improve or further their knowledge in science. Katy G
