Oxford University MBiochem Honours graduate offering bespoke GCSE/iGCSE Triple Science (Biology/Chemistry/Physics) & A Level Biology tutoring in London and online.

Methodology

My work as a professional actor means that I am an open, engaging, animated, and communicative teacher. I encourage my students to take an active role in their own learning, making their own notes and feeling free to ask questions as we work. I avoid an approach of simply reciting and copying - always challenging students with guided questions and visualisations of the problem at hand.

Most of all - I try to make my lessons fun and enjoyable! Science is a fascinating, vital topic; and if I feel I have instilled a sense of this in my students, then the lesson has been a success. When this happens, exam success tends to follow!

Experience

I have garnered over eight years' extensive experience as a Private Tutor for a variety of students and skillsets, after graduating from Oxford University with a 2:1 Honours MBiochem degree in Molecular & Cellular Biochemistry.

Particular focus areas include GCSE & iGCSE Triple Sciences (Biology/Chemistry/Physics), GCSE Double Sciences (Core & Additional), and AS/A Level Biology.

Under my tuition, one of my long-term iGCSE students recently achieved triple 9 grades in his Biology, Chemistry and Physics results. A iGCSE Biology mature student also progressed from zero prior experience to an A* grade in just one year; and another international student, new to the UK system in Year 11, went from a U grade in her mocks to an A in her final Biology GCSE, after a week's intensive study together over the Easter holidays.

I also worked for over two years as the resident Science/Chemistry teacher at Rhodes Farm School, an independent hospital school, in North London. Here I taught students at KS3, GCSE and A Level; whilst also communicating with the pupils, their families, and their home schools to ensure they kept up with their studies, and prepared for eventual reintegration into mainstream education.

JOB HISTORY

Freelance & Agency
September 2012 - present
Private Tutor
Vast amount of experience tutoring students ranging from KS1 to degree level; with particular focus on the following areas: AS/A Level Biology, iGCSE/GCSE Triple Sciences, GCSE Double Science (Core & Additional) 11+ & 13+ Common Entrance, UCAS reference appraisal, and university interview technique. Formed solid, close working relationships with students whom I tutored throughout the academic year; resulting in excellent improvements and results in schoolwork and exams.

Rhodes Farm School, Mill Hill
September 2014 – August 2016
Science Teacher & Key Teacher
RFS is an independent hospital school serving the educational needs of those who attend the Rhodes Farm Clinic for young people with eating disorders. As Science Teacher I worked with students at KS3, GCSE and A Level, communicating with the pupils and their home schools to ensure they could proceed with their studies and keep up to date. Required teaching and monitoring of work sent by schools, or planning and delivering lessons of new material - all with the focus of maintaining a steady yet sensitive and manageable education, and preparing the students for their reintegration into mainstream schools or further education. As a Key Teacher I was responsible for the welfare of individual pupils at the school; liaising with their families and carers to ensure optimal and tailored academic progress during their stay.

Pate’s Grammar School, Cheltenham
June 2009
Teaching Assistant
Partook in the Student Associates Scheme – working alongside qualified teachers in the Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Drama departments to observe the successful functioning of an educational environment. Assisted with the planning and execution of lessons; including exercises to capture pupils’ imaginations and create a fun, engrossing learning atmosphere for students aged 11-18. In addition, supervised the organisation and running of the Lower School House Drama competition.

SKILLS, HOBBIES & INTERESTS

Leadership and Teamwork
As Entertainments Officer for the Worcester College Commemoration Ball 2011, I was responsible for providing a full night’s leisure for around 2000 guests – managing my share of a £250k budget. Required exceptionally robust organisational and communicational skills, both in person and via copious emails and phone calls; solid teamwork; and rapid problem-solving whilst on my feet for several hours.
As First Year Rep at Worcester College in Oxford I was in charge of planning, coordinating and executing Freshers’ Week for over 120 incoming students; and remained as their Welfare Officer throughout the year. Arranged and carried out various activities and events – to help new students feel welcomed, relaxed and entertained during their first few weeks away from home.
As Head Boy at Pate’s Grammar School, my officials and I were responsible for over 200 students of all ages; working with both staff and children to organise and run such inter-house events as Sports Day, Drama, Art, Music, Debating, and assembles.

Drama and Theatre
Having engaged in the performing arts since a very young age, I now have diverse and extensive experience in all forms of the theatre, both on and off the stage. I have starred as lead and choral roles in a variety of productions – from Shakespeare to experimental, and from garden shows to established London theatres – and so have developed a strong sense of confidence, approachability, enthusiasm, collaboration and veracity. My Presidency of the Worcester College Drama Society, along with widespread work in directing, producing and marketing, have given me valuable experience in administration, people management and leadership.
My career as a professional actor - following my training at The Oxford School of Drama in 2012 – demanding and exhilarating – has taught me the skills to pursue a career in acting as both an artist and a personal business. My work has taken me all over the world, performing and directing in a multitude of media including stage, screen, and audio.

Languages
My enthusiasm for travel and language means that I am able to converse in German (intermediate) as well as French and Mandarin (basic). I am also in the process of learning Spanish; and have literacy in the Cyrillic alphabet. Similarly, a passion for grammar and syntax led me to regularly proofread and copyedit The Oxford Student, the weekly newspaper at university.

Sport and exercise
Swimming, skiing, cycling, badminton, dance. I also earned my Open Water SCUBA diving qualification whilst assisting a reef ecology PhD student in Honduras.

Driving
Full clean driving licence since November 2006. MiDAS (Minibus Driving) qualified in July 2011.
