About the lesson
I'm a 3rd year Marine Biology student who is very experienced in working with children and teenagers of all ages and mental abilities, including kids with ADD/ADHD and autism. I have As in 4 science GCSEs (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geology) and an A in A-Level Biology. If you are in the Belfast area and you feel your secondary school child would benefit from tutoring in Biology or general science, consider me as an option. I specialise in zoology, ecology and practical skills, but I am also proficient in all areas of high school Biology.
My lessons involve discussing and clarifying key concepts of the curriculum, going through past paper questions, and exploring wider reading and materials. I help to set out schedules of revision and homework and work with a variety of resources and technology to keep lessons interesting. I work to discover and encourage your child's learning strategies and I'm flexible in my use of resources to promote visual, aural or repetitive learning.
I have a basic criminal records check certificate, and you can trust me to ensure your child's safety.
I am new to giving formal tutoring lessons in Biology, but have over 5 years youth work experience. I have given coursework tutoring to GCSE Electronics students. Other experience in working with high school students includes:
- Being a Girl Guide leader for 2 years.
- Working as a youth leader at various summer camps and retreat weekends both in the UK and abroad
- Running interactive kids' workshops on palaeontology in a country park
All of which involves communication skills, education, running engaging craft and sport activities, pastoral care, promoting group discussion and showing strong leadership.
