I live beside the sea in (sometimes) sunny Cornwall. I enjoy keeping active through swimming, gym and yoga . I love being outside and a beach BBQ is always my favoutite thing! As a student, I worked at Walt Disney World in Florida!!
I have a great attention to detail which means my resources are designed and produced to the highest quality that will maximise learning potential!
I have qualified teacher status, experience teaching in UK secondary schools as well as many sucessful years of 1:1 tutoring. I bring together my deep understanding of science, with my experience of learning styles and study techniques to support young people in achieving their academic goals!
I have a first class biology degree and have a first class approach to tutoring. My previous experience has been in tutoring/teaching GCSE Combined science as well as the individual Biology, Chemistry and Physics GCSE awards (AQA, OCR, EdExcel). In addition to this, I have been the lead biology teacher for A Level Biology as well as tutoring many A level biology students (OCR, AQA).
I have the scientific understanding as well as the teaching technique to ensure that all of my students can fully understand concepts and confidently apply them to exam situations. I am a strong believer in providing my students with a solid knowledge in combination with exam technique and exam skills. Knowing the subject knowledge is only half of the story; students must be confident in the application of their knowledge to specific questions in order to maximise marks in exams. This is where my tutorial will make huge impacts.
Through Rachel's tutoring, I went from achieving Es and Us in my mocks to achieving a C in my A Level biology and securing a place at my first choice university!!
