Katrina - Waltham Cross - Biology

Methodology

I enjoy inspiring everyone and have a patient and enthusiastic approach. I provide resources + find strategies that work. Developing life and study skills is as important as the content itself.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

SUMMER DEALS: Block of 6 lessons for the price of 5! So you get the 6th lesson FREE!

FREE First TRIAL - Free 30 minute session: designed for you to get to know me and my methods commitment free!

A-level: Biology
GCSE: Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) and PE.
KS3: Science, Maths,
KS2: Science, Maths, 11+
I have also often been asked to help with a range of other subjects, such as psychology in the lead up to exams in order to help with general revision strategies to get students ORGANISED & LEARNING!

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I completed a Bachelor of Science (Hons) at the University of Melboure in Australia, followed by a one year Diploma of Education (Secondary). I then moved to the UK and have been working here as a science teacher since 2008.

I recently converted my qualifications gaining UK Qualified Teacher Status through a General Teaching Program (GTP) and Overseas Trained Teacher (OTT) Program in 2010 at Nottingham Trent University.

- How much do you charge?

SUMMER DEALS: Block of 6 lessons for the price of 5! So you get the 6th lesson FREE!

FREE First TRIAL - Free 30 minute session: designed for you to get to know me and my methods commitment free!

£35/hr for A-level Biology (usually 1.5 hour sessions)
£30/hr for GCSE
£30/hr for KS2 and KS3

Please note: Prices are negotiable as are rates for group lessons depending upon the number of students.
I can provide discounts for buying a number of sessions in 'bulk'.

A-level sessions typically run for 1 hour 15 mins, but I allow up to 1.5 hours per session.

I am willing to extend the length of any session as required.

- Where do you teach?

I am happy to teach in my safe home in Cheshunt and am also happy to travel to you (depending on time of day and distance).

The closest towns to me include: Cuffley, Goffs Oak, Hoddesdon, Hertford, Waltham Abbey, Waltham Cross, Northaw, Turnford, Wormley, Broxbourne, Ware, Harlow, Roydon, Enfield.

- When are you available?

Monday - Friday: any time of day or evening (I am currently working from home so am very flexible).

Saturday - Sunday: any time of day

I WILL BE AVAILABLE ALL OF THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am happy to work with students of any age: from 6 to 106!

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can tutor through skype if needed. I also regularly keep in email &/or skype contact with students when close to exam time for additional support as they need. THIS MEANS THAT I ENSURE STUDENTS & PARENTS CAN ALWAYS REACH ME WHEN THEY NEED.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

As a teacher I have lots of experience helping students of all abilities! The feedback I always get is that I have helped make learning FUN by using MANY different RESOURCES. My lunchtimes were always busy as students have always felt comfortable to approach me for help, to ask questions and know that I will persevere in finding a strategy that works for them! I really enjoy it when you feel a sense of achievement because then I do too!!!!!!!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

In the UK I have have gained Science and Biology teaching experience since 2008 - that's six years! I have really enjoyed tutoring a range of students through this website since 2010 primarily working with A-level Biology, but have helped with most subjects at GCSE and even 11+ training.

I have worked in five comprehensives and have worked for 2 years in a Grammar school - thus I have strong experience working with students from a variety of backgrounds, abilities and aspirations.

My tutees attained excellent exam results and some real confidence in their own study techniques. My students have received excellent results at GCSE and A-level. For example 20 % of the students in my GCSE classes recently attained above their target grade where 80 % were A-A*.

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

Yes.
