Linda - West Bergholt - Biology

Methodology

I believe all children have the ability to succeed in science given the right support. I am especially experienced in examination and course work preparation.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I have recently retired from a Science College in Hertfordshire where I taught all sciences up to GCSE (OCR applied and additional science and geology) and A-level Chemistry and Geology (Both OCR). In the past I have taught A-level Biology/Human Biology and Btec Applied Science / Biochemistry in Higher Education establishments. I have recently gained a position as an on-line Key Stage Three tutor for the Wolsey College Oxford.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

My original degree is in Applied Biology (Biochemistry with physiology and pharmacology, Upper Second, 1982) which I completed when employed as a research scientist for a large pharmaceutical company. I completed my PGCE in 1986 prior to gaining a full time teaching appointment in a school. I have recently completed a open degree in physical sciences with the Open university which covers physics, organic and physical chemistry and earth sciences.

- How much do you charge?

£25-30 per hour,depends on travelling time. £50 for a two hour session (in the past I have tutored both Chemistry and Biology).Happy to teach up to three in a group.

- Where do you teach?

Either at home or at the student's home. I have also "Skype" tutored in the past.

- When are you available?

I am retired so very flexible, I will also ensure I am available though out the Easter and May holiday period, a time essential for exam preparation.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Key Stage 3 science, especially where children need to build confidence prior to GCSE, GCSE(IGCSE) and A level/IB

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Would respond to questions by e-mail
Use Skype, would fax worksheets/questions.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Science is the key to making the world a better place, it's amazing!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I worked as a research biochemist for about 10 years until starting a family. When my children were young I worked part time in a college of further education. I gained employment in a large comprehensive who supported me to complete my PGCE with the Open University. I have worked in state schools ever since.I have worked as an examiner for Chemistry A-Level at OCR. I am now an on-line tutor for the Wolsey College Oxford (Key Stage 3).

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

Yes. Current for Hertfordshire.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Earth Science Teachers Association Open University/ Local Geology Groups

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Most of my A level students attain places on desired courses. Medicine, Vet, Dentists , Physiotherapy, Geology. Several students follow though from GCSE to A Level.
