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.
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.
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
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.
Science, and particularly biology is easily my greatest passion. This genuine enjoyment of the subject will come through in how I tutor. Ideally, some of this will rub off on my client and will make it easier for them to gain lasting knowledge and for them to really achieve their academic potential. Although I ended up choosing to study Biology as my degree, I've always been fascinated by physics, and was successful in the study of this subject throughout A-level. I continue to be interested in the world of physics, and despite no academic obligation, I continue to seek knowledge on the subject. I will also be more than willing and able to tutor on geography. I have recently received an offer to study at Oxford University for a PhD, this will give me more time to concentrate on tutoring.
I have adequate experience in being able to teach others, in the form of tutoring, presentations and seminars. My current qualification involves giving presentations and oral examinations, which requires explanation of scientific content to different audiences. I have also regularly supervised undergraduate and masters students on their final year research projects which involves day-to-day in lab supervision, discussion and report reviews, as well as demonstrating in undergraduate practicals at my university. I also have experience proof-reading and editing reports and written work. More recently, I have become a tutor for an online university Master's degree course for Kaplan Open Learning, in which I run seminars, discussion forums and provide feedback on assignments to students. I believe that I am able to adapt to the different teaching requirements of the individual, and confidently help the individual to understand the depths of knowledge that they require for their qualification. I am happy to teach in the form of example exam paper questions, mind maps, essays, or any way the individual feels is best for them. A variety of teaching techniques will allow the individual to become more adaptable and engaged with learning for their particular qualification. My teaching philosophy focuses on encouraging the individual to think for themselves and have the confidence to challenge and question should they not understand; but whilst enjoying learning along the way.
I can tutor many Electronic and Electrical engineering modules, e..g. Mathematics, signal processing, communication engineering, antennas, propagation, electronics, circuit analysis etc. Of course, depending on the student's specific need, I can assess how and whether I can help.
I have good experience in teaching mathematics and science (physics, chemistry and biology) in secondary schools. I am especially skilled in mathematics and physics. I helped in teaching mathematics in undergraduate engineering. For more than three years, I have been privately tutoring A-level maths and physics students as well as tutoring at KS2, KS3, GCSE, IGCSE, undergraduate and postgraduate. I am also able to support SEN students.
I have more than 3000 hours of tutoring experience and I am quite familiar with the different curriculums and exam boards specifications.
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.
In a job where experience is vital, I've been privileged to tutor students for over 15 years. It's enabled me to build up an excellent selection of resources, teaching materials and illustrations - as well as a very good working knowledge of the syllabus of all exam boards, including International Baccalaureate.
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.
