Helen - Heath - Biology

Methodology

Bringing energy and dedication to my teaching, I enjoy finding new ways to explain concepts in science, making it enjoyable, whatever your age or stage of learning.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach biology at A Level/Highers and all three sciences at GCSE.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Having always thought I would become an artist, I then got a bit distracted by contemplating animal behaviour shortly before beginning my diploma in Art Foundation Studies. I found myself going to the library to read books on animal science and psychology, in order to inspire my art. This made me think that I might actually like to study science, so I applied successfully to Cardiff University's Zoology degree with a foundation year. I won a place on a University of Cambridge behavioural ecology project in South Africa for my professional training year and, after obtaining a 2(1), went on to work on a few further international research projects. After this, I studied for a master's degree in marine biology and then moved into consultancy. Along the way, I did all kinds of presenting, teaching and engagement work, before deciding to become a tutor.

So if you think of yourself as more of a creative/arty type, don't worry, it's possible to be a scientist as well!

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 an hour for A Level and Highers tutoring, and £25 an hour for GCSEs. I also tutor adult learners. Feel free to ask if you're looking for help with a different level of study and I can give you my fees.

If my journey to you is a long one, I do need to add on a travel fee (the amount depends on how far away you are/how long it actually takes me to reach you). Alternatively, we can discuss online tuition. If you have a group of people wanting to learn, it works out 30% cheaper per student.

- Where do you teach?

I live in the wonderful Welsh capital, Cardiff, where I teach in tutees' homes and sometimes public spaces, like libraries, where requested. I am pretty flexible and sure we can find a mutually convenient place to meet. I generally tutor in and around the city but will always consider coming further out, although there may be a travel fee involved in this to cover my time and fuel.

- When are you available?

I am available to tutor weekday daytimes (for those with free periods during the day, e.g. A Level students) and after school hours, with more limited availability on weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I mostly teach students approaching GCSE and A Level, so generally 14-18-year-olds. However, I am also available to tutor some topics of biology at a higher level, as well as adults returning to education.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Generally, students come to me for help with their A Levels, AS exams and GCSEs. However, I have also been contacted by those based in Scotland, so I offer online tuition for Highers. If you need tuition for a similar qualification, drop me a line - I may be able to help.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I like to have an initial chat via Skype and then, if we are both happy, I shall invite you to meet me on the site I use for tutoring at the allotted session time.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I've done a lot of different things but my main professional activities have been connected with ecology; I've done research, ecological consultancy and now I also tutor biology (and other sciences).

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

Yes, indeed!
