David - Durham - Biology

Methodology

I have a PhD in Cell Biology from the University of Durham which has given me an excellent scientific grounding for teaching GCSE and A-level Biology. I am embracing online tuition and I have up to date electronic online resources for 2013.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

GCSE Biology (including IGCSE)
A level Biology - AQA and OCR

- Tell me about your qualifications.

PhD in Cell Biology, University of Durham, 2013
BSc Biomedical Sciences, University of Durham, 2008 (1st class hons)
Qualified Biomedical Scientist with NHS lab experience

- How much do you charge?

My rate is £25/hr. I am happy to give a free introductory lesson for new students.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home in Durham, or online using a professional tutoring interface.

- When are you available?

Daytime, evenings or weekends. I have a limited number of tuition slots remaining, so please contact me for more details.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

GCSE and A-level

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I tutor online using a professional tutoring website. This interface allows the student and I to talk, view files and annotate on a virtual whiteboard and is far superior to simply talking on Skype or exchanging instant messages. The only equipment that the student needs is a webcam and microphone (standard on most laptops).

I have up to date resources including text books, revision guides, diagrams and exam papers which can be used online.

Again, I am very happy to give a free introductory lesson for online tuition. Simply send me a quick message and we can arrange a time for the free lesson.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been involved in private tuition throughout my PhD for 3 years, as well as taking part in University undergraduate teaching and assignment marking. Through online tuition I have tutored students from all around the UK as well as overseas, studying for the AQA, OCR and Edexcel exam boards. I have a good understanding of the exam board specifications and requirements.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I do not have a current CRB check, however I was fully checked when working in the NHS

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I currently have a mixture of A-level and GCSE Biology students from around the country, as well as abroad, studying for AQA, OCR and Edexcel exams.

My students are of a broad range of abilities. Many of them will go on to get A/A* grades and study Medicine or Dentistry at University, but I also have students who will be thrilled to achieve a C grade. I always adapt my teaching to the requirements, capabilities and target grades of the student.

Some of my students also ask me for university/career advice, and I have a number of useful contacts in related fields - pharmacists, doctors, dentists and biomedical scientists. I qualified as a Biomedical Scientist which is a popular degree choice for A-level Biology students, and I am happy to advise about Biomedical Science as a degree or career option. I can also give my opinions about further study (Masters/PhD) and a career in academia for ay students who are considering that path.
