Background

I have been teaching for 18 years and tutoring for 16 years. I am an examiner and a consultant specialising in exam revision classes at schools. I have been invited into schools to specifically focus on high achieving students aiming to get an A*. As I am examiner I have an in-depth knowledge of the specifcation content for QCA, AQA, OCR and Edexcel. My A level and GCSE students this year (Aug 2018) all achieved either on or above their target grades. With a large number of A and A* grade for both my tutees and my students at school. Many of my students have gained places at top universities to study a range of degrees including medicine, dentistry and biomedical sciences. I tutor students from a range of schools including QE boys, Latimer, Bedford Modern, Sharnbrook, Parmiters, St Marthas, St James and Henrietta Barnet.

I have a A level biology student from Bedford Modern who was struggling to get an A in her end of topic tests, she got an A in her biology and is off to study Vet med at Liverpool.

I have an A level biologist who is retaking year 12, she failed year 12 last year but is now achieving A or B in her end of topic tests, (results are in: A!! Off to do Physiotherapy)

I tutored young man in both geography and biology, his confidence improved massively since our lessons began and his grades are improved as a result. I spent a lot of time going through exam papers with him which highlighted areas that he needed help with as well increasing his familiarity with the exam questions. (He got an A and a B)

I tutor 2 sisters who are now in year 10 and 13, I also tutored their sisters all the way through GCSE and A level, they are both at University now.
