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
Gareth's last completed Biology job with Chaturya: 1-2_HOURS - I want to get an A (full marks if possible) for first year of A levels and then i want to get A* in the second year. I would like to get into a very good university possibly like Cambridge.
Gareth's last review in Biology from Rohit: Tbd Learned a lot of difficult concepts
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.

Biology job with Georgina:
1-2 hrs/week - HI, I am looking for a Biology tutor to help my daughter with her A level this summer. She had an introductory session with Nicky at Christmas time but we couldn't find a time that suited over the holidays so we wondered if Nicky had any availability now either on weekends or on weekday evenings (my daughter has a weekly exeat so can do an afternoon once a week as well).
If anyone else is available, we would love to try an introductory session with them please. Particular areas required are data.
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 review in Biology from Sarah: Really good in helping me remember specific terminology for exam questions in topics I find more difficult.
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 and Chemistry, 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 Grade A*s. The Biology department has excellent value-added at A Level.
Anna's last completed Biology job with Rickie: 1-2 hrs/week - I mainly struggle with homeostasis, but I need help overall for the course
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 review in Biology from Alexandra: UKCAT -AR Thank You ^^ Have a nice trip
I have worked as a science tutor for the past year and loved every minute. I had the opportunity during my PhD to conduct a placement in Argentina as an English teacher and this is where I honed my teaching skills with all age ranges of students.
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 Nadia: 1-2 hrs/week - Transitioning from the US curriculum to UK GCSE.
I am an enthusiastic and energetic individual who is both self-motivated and proactive. An excellent communicator at all levels internal & external, can be relied on to work well both as part of a team and individually. Thrives on a challenge and have delivered my best results when faced with pressing targets.
I hold a Bachelors degree from queen Margaret University in pharmacology, a MSc in Cancer Therapeutics from Barts and the London School of Medicine and I currently finishing my PhD from Barts Cancer Institute. I have a vast experience of teaching at all levels and currently teach two days a week.
Ramsay's last completed Biology job with Rohit: 1-2 hrs/week - I am an undergraduate in UC Davis and have taken an introductory bio course BIS2A; the last time I touched biology was at the end of middle school and thus am not very proficient at it. I am finding most of the concepts such as enzyme substrates, ATP and membranes quite difficult. I need help in understanding concepts as I will be having difficult midterms and finals.
I did my professional teaching course last year but had to give up teaching after qualifying for a great PhD opportunity. My favourite part of teaching was spending time with small groups and helping them realise they could do things they thought they couldn't.
I predominately taught GCSE and A-level classes In all three of the sciences. I also had to teach quite a lot on maths within the Physics A-level as well as helping out in GCSE maths classes. I really enjoyed teaching the sciences to people who were struggling as it would give rise to the "OH I get it now!" moment that most teachers crave.
Before teaching I studied at the University of Nottingham where I gained my masters in Biochemistry and Genetics. During this course I was lucky enough to study a large variety of topics as well as take part in research projects at the university which gave rise to further works. I thoroughly enjoyed my degree as well as my research which is why I am now studying for my PhD.

Biology job with maryam:
1-2 hrs/week - I'm looking to get an a in my assignment
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.

Blake's last review in Biology from Luca: Fantastic , Luca felt motivated and at ease straight away.
I am a science and maths tutor and retired and part-time lecturer in astronomy at the University of Cambridge. I teach all sciences and maths at GCSE and A-level physics and biology. I also coach in Oxbridge entrance in the sciences. My time at the University of Cambridge has been very useful at giving me insight into the admissions process.
