I am a fully qualified teacher with a PGCE/FE, BSC (Hons) Science, Dip HE, BTEC HND in Applied Biology. I have over 30 years teaching experience in Further Education, 6th Form colleges and schools and have helped hundreds of students improve their theoretical knowledge at all levels from GCSE to Degree level as shown by improved exam and coursework grades. I provide tuition for Biology including exam preparation and coursework guidance for all levels.
For Adult students or Nursing students I can also help with Anatomy &Physiology and dissertations, proof reading when necessary before final submissions.
Over the years, I have seen class sizes increase and the amount of one to one tuition decrease. I understand that everyone has different ways of learning and the current teaching styles in schools and colleges do not suit everybody and, at times, people need extra support or guidance. As gaining a science qualification has increased in importance, taking Biology seems like the easy route until you come across the jargon of the subject which can feel like learning a new language as well! Whether it is GCSE, AS/A2 or Nursing and Medical, I have proven skills to demystify the subject and enable you to have confidence in the language and concepts involved in Biology or Anatomy and Physiology. Ultimately, I believe learning should be and can be fun as well as productive.

One thing that makes Carrie stand out against other Biology tutors I have used in the past is the way that she breaks down the hardest topics in the syllubus into bite sized and easy to understand steps.
Tommorow i'm sitting my last A-Level bio paper after a few months with weekly lessons with Carrie and I can say I will be going into that exam hall with much more confidence than I had just a few months ago.
Thank You Carrie
I desperately needed an A in my AS level Biology to increase my chances of getting into my chosen course at University. Carrie boosted my confidence in Biology right from the very first lesson I had with her. I found that Carrie's general biology knowledge as well as specific exam board knowledge was outstanding, this is why I asked Carrie to tutor me a second time when I had to do a different AS biology exam board. Carrie knows every single exam boards specification and what is required to do well in each specific board. Unlike some other tutors Carrie genuinely cares about your personal goals not just in Biology but after college as well. Carrie's explanations, diagrams, notes and tips were all useful revision tools that helped me to get that all important A grade.
'I first started having sessions with Carrie towards the start of my Access course in Health and Health Sciences which I needed to complete with as many distinctions as possible in order to get a place at a good University to do my Nursing degree. When I had my first session with Carrie I was really lacking in confidence as I had always struggled with science when I was in school plus going back into education at the age of 24 was very difficult and a big change. However I knew after meeting Carrie that she would be able to help me. She explained complicated scientific concepts to me in a way in which I could easily understand. With her help I finished my course with almost double the amount of distinctions that I needed and am now about to start my degree in Nursing at the University of Southampton which has been rated as the third best university in the country for nursing. I wouldn't have been able to do any of this without Carrie's help. Not only did I find her to be an exceptional tutor but her laid back, simple way of teaching was of great comfort as well. Could not recommend any more highly. She is simply fantastic!'
Carrie tutored me through both years of A-Level Biology, working towards the A grade I required to study medicine at University. Carrie tutors in such a way as to make biology interesting and easy to understand and she constantly motivated and encouraged me, keeping me focussed which was really helpful particularly because we were always able to finish the syllabus early and the never ending revision began. Carries never ending knowledge of both the subject and the examination styles enabled to be one step ahead throughout the gruelling two years, taking immense amounts of pressure off me come exam season. I would strongly recommend Carrie to every student studying Biology regardless of their ability!
Carrie is an excellent tutor as she helped me during my dissertation when I was struggling immensely. She explained things clearly and most of all she is very easy to talk to. Carrie was extremely helpful during this difficult time and constantly reassured that me everything was going to be OK, which it was, in the end, as I achieved a 2:1 for my dissertation…. I would definitely recommend Carrie.
Thank you for your excellent service it has been very much appreciated.

We highly recommend Carrie as a biology teacher. She has that rare ability to make learning fun. We were looking for three things in a tutor.
1 A good knowledge of the subject
2 The ability to teach the subject
3 The ability to get on with teenagers.
Carrie has excelled in all three. She also has a brilliant sense of humour. We will certainly continue to see her now our son is making the transition from GCSE to A level. Thanks Carrie.

Carrie started tutoring my son, David, during the first term of his A-levels. David enjoyed his lessons so much that it wasn't long before his elder brother, Thomas (year 13) was being tutored as well. They both have a love of the sciences and Carrie is the ideal tutor to share her enthusiasm of the subject with them. The time Carrie spends with each of my sons is invaluable and this is reflected by their achievements in the classroom and exams. Her commitment is not restricted to the time spent in the lesson. She keeps in contact with us via e-mail, ensuring they have access to all resources and always telephones them immediately after an exam, anxious to know how they got on. I am so thrilled to have Carrie tutoring my sons and cannot recommend her highly enough.
