I have been tutoring and teaching for over 14 years, and over half of that has been spent in the position of Head of Science or assistant principal. I believe that I am easy to be around and students feel comfortable when working with me and are confident that they can ask any question, no matter how silly they may perceive it to be. I always try to think of relevant and engaging ways to tackle a topic to enable all abilities to understand.
Having left teaching in September 2018 to spend more time with my baby daughter, I've set up my own business that designs lesson resources for other teachers. This not only means that I have access to hundreds of resources that I share during lessons to back up the learning but also means that I'm aware of the intricacies and key details of all of the specifications, including the International ones

Biology job with kaya:
1-2 hrs/week - I am writing my final version for my Biology IA. I just need someone to read it through and make comments on it. The final deadline is on Wednesday at midnight (Berlin time). I would greatly appreciate your help. Since writing up labs are one of my many weaknesses in biology, having someone rigorously comment on it would really help me.
My topic is looking at the association between three types of moss as the height of the spruce tree increases. Thank you!
Gareth's last review in Biology from jason: Introductory meeting this was great - definitely want to continue
I have over 4 years of experience in tutoring the sciences across a range of exam boards and levels, and am focused on ensuring each of my students understands how they will best reach their goals.
I am passionate about the subjects that I tutor, and am able to deliver them in innovative and engaging ways. My aim is to build up the confidence of my students in any given subject, and to help each individual to realise their potential.

Eleanor's last review in Biology from Evie : continued
PGCE Biology, BSc Hons 2:1 Microbiology, 20 years' teaching experience including the last 7 years tutoring A-level Biology to around 350 tutees as individuals or groups. Excellent results with all tutees improving beyond their target grade. Many successful potential Medics, Vets, Dentists and Biology students have gained A* in Biology A-level and managed to secure a place at their first choice University following weekly tuition. On-line tuition only. I am a very approachable, friendly tutor with a wealth of knowledge regarding examination technique. I have the ability to simplify all theory ensuring the tutees build on their basic knowledge and then secure full understanding. I endeavour to ensure all theory is grounded before applying the knowledge to examination style questions. I also hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
Nicky's last completed Biology job with Philippa : Occasional - I am struggling with topic 6 (infection response) for the Nuffield Biology course. I need to get an A.
Nicky's last review in Biology from Philippa : Excellent all round thank you Nicky!
I have tutored in person and online for over 10 years and receive great feedback with my students receiving mostly A*'s and A's. I believe that interacting and stimulation is the key to excellent tutoring.
I work mainly on perfecting exam techniques and how to answer the question for maximum marks. I have a lot of practice material and previous exam material.
I welcome inquiries from anyone who would like extra, on-going tuition, help with general revision or assignments, or preparation for exams.
I have experience with OCR, AQA and Edexcel syllabus.

For the past ten years, I have provided private tuition to students of a variety of ages and abilities. This has ranged from primary Maths to A Level Biology. I have helped students to prepare for exams with a number of examboards including Edexcel, AQA, WJEC and OCR.
I have been working for the past seven years as a teacher in a private girls’ school teaching Biology to A Level, Chemistry to GCSE and some KS3 Maths. I have developed an expert knowledge of Edexcel IGCSE Biology, as well as Edexcel AS and A Level Biology A. I am extremely passionate about my job and get a real thrill from seeing my students make progress. Both times I have taught a top division at GCSE, they have all achieved top grades. The Biology department has excellent value-added at A Level.
Last year, I also worked as an Assessment Specialist, marking IGCSE papers for Cambridge Assessment. This gave me a real insight into what examiners are looking for and made me more aware of common mistakes that students make. This will help me to prepare students even more thoroughly for their exams.
Anna's last completed Biology job with Michelle : 1-2 hrs/week - ASAP
Professional experience successful well prepared AQA Biology tutor A Level and GCSEs
Subject divided into topic blocks with notes and past paper questions. The student gains confidence and experience and an important understanding of terminology. A range of relevant images and videos can be used as an aid to gain wider relevant knowledge.Lessons are hard work but enjoyable
Andrew's last completed Biology job with Lavin : 1-2 hrs/week - I am looking to achieve an A-A* grade in my A-level exams this summer. I am most challenged with exam technique, particularly how to go about application questions.
Andrew's last review in Biology from Maimuna: Microscopy and Cells with exam technique I enjoyed the lesson and he was amusing. I also liked how he gave stories and analogies to prompt me into answering a question.
I have worked as a science tutor for the past two years and have loved every minute. During my PhD and subsequent time in academia I taught a range of levels and am expert in teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics from GCSE level up to University level. At higher levels of education I can teach my specialist subjects including Biochemistry, Structural Biology and Molecular Biology.
With enthusiasm, careful planning and knowledge you can improve a students results and enjoyment of the subject, Tutoring is such a rewarding business to be involved in and what makes me a good tutor is that I teach out of love for the subject.
Fraser's last completed Biology job with Dhruv: 1-2 hrs/week - IB Diploma HL Biology Pearson Book Chapter 3 (the chemistry of life) and 4 (Genetics). I am looking to get an 7 in this course
I have been a private tutor for over 6 years and hold Qualified Teacher Status with experience teaching in schools in Suffolk and Devon. I was graded 'Outstanding' for my Teacher Training and also have experience working in industrial and research laboratories.
I am experienced in tutoring and teaching GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics tuition and A level Biology and Chemistry. I really like to break-down the difficult topics and train you how to give examiners what they want in your answers. I have worked with a wide range of students of all ages and abilities and the wonderful thing about tutoring is I can adapt it exactly to your specific needs. Having also worked as an exam assessor I know exactly the standard and requirements required to gain the marks!
I LOVE my subject and love discussion in order to further understanding. I think part of my success as a teacher is my enthusiasm and need to have fun. I try to remind my students exactly how exciting science actually is outside of textbooks.

I've tutored to A-level standard since I was a teenager and have worked part-time as tutor with Oxbridge Applications tutoring university entrance for the past 6 years.
As a PhD student I also have a real passion for biological sciences and building knowledge for the sake of learning which I aim to pass on to my students.
Between successful applications to and interviewing prospective candidates for undergraduate, postgraduate and fellowship roles I have a tonne of experience with how to build a personal statement and present on previous work/interests.
Robert's last completed Biology job with Nicholas: 1-2_HOURS - The girl must get an interview. Pay is tbc but will be likely be between £60-70 per hour and the total income will likely stretch into the thousands of pounds.
Robert's last review in Biology from Alexandra: UKCAT -AR Thank You ^^ Have a nice trip
My approach to tutoring is get the student interested in the subject they are studying, as learning about something you're interested in makes all the content more accessible.
All the content taught in the lesson will be from your school's exam board. The lessons will be based on the content you need for your exams, as well as developing strategies and skills to answer exam questions.
I will be able to provide all material for the tutoring sessions.
