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

I have a very successful track record as a tutor of enabling my students and clients to meet the many challenges they face as they work towards a range of qualifications form GSCE to University degrees at all levels up to doctoral level. Over the last year in particular and my role as a Profs lecturer I have had many clients achieve their potential and beyond in relation to developing their academic writing, developing their understanding of the research process, competing dissertations while under pressure, grappling with statistics (SPSS) and research design and analysis within both quantitative (survey design, descriptive and inferential statistics) and qualitative research methods (thematic , discourse analyses and grounded theory). Many of these students were majoring in psychology, some in sport ,physical educations and dance and others in general education degrees. In addition, I have successfully supported a number of doctoral students who were experiencing difficulties within their doctoral journey and a range of students completing their final dissertations. My key strengths lie within the area of research and research methods and due to my own range of academic and professional experience I can tutor across a diverse range of subject areas. In summary I have worked with students for over 20 years and now have successfully embraced working as a very experienced online tutor.
I am an experienced educator, with a specialism in Geography/Environmental Science, as well as STEM in industry and Psychology. I have been a qualified teacher since 2008 and worked with children aged 4-18 in schools in the UK as well as international schools in East Timor and the Philippines. I currently manage an education service which specialises in providing students (5-18) with practical learning experiences to help them understand the links between what they learn in school and the relevance of these subjects in industry.
In addition, I am a qualified fitness instructor (2007) and Strength & Conditioning Coach. I have worked with students in schools as well as with adults both in group settings and on a one to one basis.
