GCSE Science Tutor, all three sciences and A level Biology, currently PhD researcher in Genetics

Methodology

My lessons are planned and adapted to the students needs and learning style. I do not believe in just memorising content for exams and want my students to understand the subject (and hopefully enjoy it!). I take a patient approach with students, aiming to build confidence and independence in their understanding of science. My lessons will be online due to COVID-19, I will be looking to teach from my own home at a later date.

I would like the student to message me with any topics that they want to go over a few days before our lesson so I can ensure I have the appropriate materials to help them or I will prepare learning material to go through, usually a mix of theory and practice questions. After a few weeks I'd like the student to do a test so that the both of us can review what you have learnt and identify if there are any areas that need more focus.

I can also also tailor the tutoring to encompass exam strategies and techniques for specific exam boards.

Experience

Hi, I'm Kristi. I'm currently a PhD researcher in Genetics at the University of Leicester and I have an extensive academic background in biology. I am looking to tutor GCSE all three sciences and A level Biology students.

I have previous experience in higher education mentoring and GCSE science tuition. I tutor GCSE science, including all 3 sciences. I have experience with SEN students and have access to resources aimed for at SEN students.

I have demonstrated and supported students in both laboratory and classroom based practicals including:
- Statistics (first year undergrads)
- Evolution and adaptation (1st year undergrads)
- Animal behaviour and neuroscience (2nd year undergrads)
- Arthropod Field work (3rd year undergrads)

Taught on genetics outreach work with KS3 students

Mentored 1:1 masters and undergraduate students

I am a student leader at the university and have undertaken a course aimed at facilitating 1st year students' independent learning and help them settle into university and maximise their study skills.
- Gained external training in best ways to maximise study methods as well as engage small groups
- Lead sessions of 10-15 students and ran activities to support their learning

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £70
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £140

Details

If you cancel a lesson with less than 24 hours notice I will still need to charge for the lesson as this is lost planning and teaching time.

I’ve worked along side Kristi during our Masters, she is both a brilliant scientist and teacher. Kristi is absolutely gifted in explaining scientific concepts to any individuals and I have experienced this personally many times. She is very patient and explains things in a simple but fun way.
