I am an experienced online and face-to-face tutor with a teacher qualification (PGCE) and a PhD in chemical biology. I am passionate about science and about enthusing young people, even those who find science difficult to begin with.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I tutor Biology, Chemistry, Physics. I also teach Maths and German.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I am a qualified secondary school teacher (PGCE) with a PhD in Chemical Biology. I have a TEFL qualification.
- How much do you charge?
Lesson fees start from £37 per hour (or pro rata), depending on level. I can offer discounts for group lessons (e.g. a group of 3 students at KS3, £12 per hour per student)
- Where do you teach?
I usually teach in my home or online. I do not have any dogs or cats.
I also run a Science Online Academy with small groups or one-to-one lessons.

I am available most afternoons and weekends.

I use Wiziq, a professional teaching platform which does not require the student to sign up (the student just clicks on the link, enters a screen name and enters the lesson). Alternatively I use Skype.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I always aim to create an atmosphere where students feel relaxed and happy to ask questions. I'm also happy to answer questions or problems after and between lessons.

I have teaching experience at secondary schools (both 'conventional' schools and online schools). I have been tutoring students for over 7 years. Before becoming a teacher/tutor I used to work in academia and industry. I am also an assistant examiner for CIE and an author for various companies including Revision Buddies and Pearson.

I have an up-to-date DBS Certificate and am registered for the automatic update service.

I am a member of The Tutors' Association, RSC.
Hanna has been tutoring our daughter for IB Higher Chemistry. She has made some difficult topics and concepts much clearer, and provided some very useful resources for revision. We would highly recommend her.
She`s great thanks.
So far so very good.
