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

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.

Scott's last completed Human Biology job with Saina: Intensive - I need tutor specially for Human Biology IGCSE
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.

I am focused and driven; I tutored for Kaplan Test Prep for 20-years serving 10,000 students. My students dominate exams; I am very excited for them and for the opportunities that lay ahead of them!!
12 years experience as Pharmacology and Biomedical Science Lecturer
5 years experience as Medical Animation Designer
I tutored many students during my PhD, from school leavers wanting lab experience to tutoring fellow PhD candidates in sterile tissue culture techniques. The longest tutoring project I have undertaken was supervising a third year medical student for his intercalated BSc in Physiology. He won the prize for top project in his year (mainly due to his hard work and dedication) and was a joy to teach and really fuelled my interest in nurturing younger minds. More recently I tutored a young man who wanted to take his GCSE a year early; his spoken French was excellent but the writing was letting him down. I identified his weaknesses and we worked on those to raise his grade to an 8 overall.
A level Biology: I have taught around 200 hours and covered the OCR, AQA and Edexcel exam boards.
A level Chemistry: I have taught around 60 hours and covered the OCR, AQA and Edexcel exam boards.
GCSE Science: I have taught around 170 hours and covered the OCR (A and B), AQA and Edexcel exam boards.
GCSE Maths: I have taught around 130 hours and covered predominantly the Edexcel exam board.
Adult numeracy aptitude tests: I have helped young adults to succeeded in numeracy and numerical reasoning tests for graduate scheme applications.
GAMSAT: I have helped both science and non-science graduates to prepare for this tough exam. I can help with Section 1, 2 and 3.
Undergraduate Biology / Biomedical Sciences: I have mentored students in the year below struggling with BSc-level topics.
UCAS and Interviews: I have helped several students with their personal statements and interview preparation.
Overall, I have 3 years experience tutoring
I have been tutoring for 2 years. In that time, I have particularly enjoyed tutoring students through their dissertations, especially helping them with their language and writing style.
