Experienced, fully qualified teacher helping pupils feel more able and confident in Biology, Physics and English.

Methodology

I begin teaching through drawing out aspects of a topic pupils will already be familiar with, ensuring they are confident with this foundation, and gradually building and exploring concepts from there. All pupils have different learning speeds and natural inclinations as to which ideas they pick up most fully. My work as a teacher is to identify where they are flying, encourage and support them, and draw them into exploring the concepts they haven't readily grasped in the first instance. With guided questioning and gradually declining supportive frameworks in place, I am always aiming to build pupils' capability and confidence in themselves.

Experience

I have a BSc in Zoology from Cardiff University, an MSc in Conservation Genetics, and spent years travelling and assisting with ecological research before making my passion for teaching my profession! I love my work, and take full accountability for making topics accessible and engaging for pupils so they are able to develop a strong depth of understanding.

I teach all sciences, specialising in both Biology and Physics at GCSE (AQA.) The way exams are written does take getting used to, so we will spend some time unpicking past exams to figure out exactly what is being asked for by each question. Then, we will work on developing strategies for achieving all of the marks assigned to various questions.

Sometimes, pupils know a subject extremely well, but in exams, they feel as if the ground has been pulled from under their feet - it's very disconcerting! Once they they have a handle on how to deconstruct and answer exam questions, they have much greater confidence overall.

In addition to science, I've also plenty of experience in supporting less confident students of English to develop technically correct, more natural and contextually appropriate language skills. I would be more than happy to offer support and tutoring in this area, too. In terms of formal exams, I am most experienced in preparing for TOEIC and IELTS EFL competency exams.
