I have been tutoring and teaching for over 15 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 Esme: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter Esme is just starting 6th form. She would like to take Biology at A level, but because she only got a 6 in her GCSE they insist she starts with AS level. If this goes well she can swap to full A level. Esme is very keen to do this and we have agreed to support her. Many thanks
Gareth's last review in Biology from Fiona: Really good
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 Iman: 1-2 hrs/week - I am resitting my OCR A level biology, having obtained a B grade I would like to boost that to an A/A* grade in order to go to my desired university.
Nicky's last review in Biology from Iman: Nicky is one of the best biology tutors that I have had. She has helped me strengthen my exam technique to push myself further in achieving a top grade. She also explains topics in an easy to follow manner and will ensure that I completely understand a topic before moving on. With the help of Nicky my confidence in biology has increased and has made me feel well prepared for my a level exams.
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
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.
Marie K's last completed Biology job with lingqi: 1-2 hrs/week - Hi , my son is at year 11 this year, would like to.have a bio tutor that help him upgrade his bio level.

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.
Louisa's last completed Biology job with Kathleen: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter (who is home educated) will be sitting Edexcel IGCSE Biology this coming November (as she didn't get calculated grades this summer). She knows the syllabus well, but could do with some help with exam technique.
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 Fariha: 1-2 hrs/week - I am doing A2 Biology on my own, therefore, I would like a class with structured week by week lessons
Andrew's last review in Biology from Agathe: Very helpful. Thank you very much!
For the past eleven 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.
For eight years, I have worked 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.
Last year, I also worked as an Assessment Specialist, marking Biology 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 Kate: 1-2 hrs/week - Would like a tutor with specific experience of EdExcel IGCSE Biology Syllabus to help my daughter with revision and past exam papers.
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 find myself as a dedicated teacher who is able to motivate and encourage students to move forward in their studies. I have been tutoring students not only face to face but also through online platform for the last 15 years. There has been never a single child whom I couldn’t push further to score higher than their predicted grades. My teaching strategies are quite focused on individual requirements, as no two students are exactly same. Being an external examiner for years as well as having the teaching experience for more than 15 years has allowed me to apply specific exam techniques to help the students to understand the science concepts and how to crack the exam questions in various boards. I have worked in various countries and taught students from countries like India, Malaysia, Singapore and Dubai. Now, I am quite confident that with my experience and effective teaching strategies, I would be able to guide and help many more in UK as well.
RUCHI's last completed Biology job with Christy: 1-2 hrs/week - I am currently struggling with control groups, constants , independent variables and dependent variables.
RUCHI's last review in Biology from Christy: Filled with a wealth of knowledge! She was teaching on a PHD level and I had to remind her this was Community College level. I appreciated her experimental examples and testing my knowledge without making me feel uncomfortable. BRAVO!!! HUGE THANK YOU!!! 10+ Stars
I have been tutoring online and 1-1 for 3 years now. I offer a range of styles in my teaching that allows the student to get involved with the lesson. This may include: labeling diagrams, creating a flow chart, completing a graph, correcting mistakes in a method e.t.c.
I have recently become an online tutor full time. This is giving me more time to make outstanding lessons for my 1-1 students. I can spend more time making sure that each student is getting the best education possible and be able to achieve grades they could not manage in a school environment.
Closer to exams, I show students how to answer exam questions. I am an examiner at AQA so I understand what the examiners are looking for and can help students with exam techniques.
