I have a warm and informal style and a long history of successful 1:1 tuition. Many former clients have improved their performance in routine assessments as a result of their increased confidence and subject knowledge.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
A Levels or their equivalent in Chemistry and Mathematics.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Master of Chemistry, a Postgraduate Certificate in Educational Theory and an introductory qualification for teaching in the Lifelong Learning (Post-16) Sector, PTLLS. I am a Registered Science Technician (RSciTech) with the Science Council. I am currently carrying out undergraduate study in BSc(Hons) Mathematics and Physics.
- How much do you charge?
My hourly fee is £30 per hour. The first, introductory consultation and needs assessment is complementary.
- Where do you teach?
I can travel in areas between and up to King's Lynn, Fakenham, Dereham, Thetford, and Downham Market. I am also available in Cambridge during term times subject to conditions. My hourly fee includes all resources, planning and travel expenses.
- When are you available?
I am available during evenings from 5 pm and can negotiate times during weekends and school holidays on an ad hoc basis.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
Upper secondary to adult. A Level only.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
The first session will be a consultation during which you can view my credentials and DBS certificate. I will carry out an informal assessment of needs, identify targets and inform planning of the first session.
- What kind of experience do you have?
To date I have 10 years' experience of working in science education in both academic and vocational areas, including 4 years teaching in the Post -16 Sector. I have 5 years experience as an author, examiner, moderator and science visiting monitor for Chemistry for a major awarding body. Learners also benefit from my broad laboratory experience in industry, research and education to support them to develop skills in analysing, interpreting and evaluating experimental data in reformed Science A level examinations. I am employed as an Easter Revision tutor for a well known provider in Cambridge. Feedback from learners is overwhelmingly positive.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
Both qualifications, MChem and PGCert at University of East Anglia.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
Association for Science Education and Registered Science Technician with the Science Council.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
I have clients in both the first and second year of A Level Chemistry studies. I am able to accommodate learners with high personal expectations - for example those wishing to pursue medical sciences or aspiring to Cambridge University. Drawing from my experience as an examiner, I am able to support learners with the finer points of examination technique needed to achieve the required A/A* grades. Meanwhile I support learners who have found the transition from GCSE to A Level challenging, and by addressing their weakest topics first, I offer clear explanations and worked examples, always drawing from the secure areas of their subject knowledge. With my support learners are able to approach tasks logically from the point of understanding and eventually move towards independent learning and self-assessment.
