« Halima was working at level 4 and had huge gaps in her science knowledge. After working with Sylvia since her mocks last year, she started to develop confidence in the subject. We are super pleased with her GCSE combined science results. She got a 6-6. Halima really enjoyed working with Sylvia and so she comes highly recommended. »

QTS Qualified Science Teacher and GCSE Chemistry Tutor. Also Online Science Tutor.

Methodology

I help children master the foundation concepts so that they can easily build upon their knowledge.

My lessons are interleaved with questions and other assessment tasks as well as frequent end of unit exam questions. All this helps to assess the child’s progress and improve memory retention and learning. Practising exam papers also helps consolidate learning and dissipate children’s fears around examinations.

My tutoring sessions are built largely around student’s weaknesses. I identify how each child learn best and teach them using more of that method. I also use everyday examples to explain key concepts which helps build confidence and increase the child’s love and understanding for the subject.

Background

“I help students improve their grades and pass GCSE & IGCSE science, through personalised 1:1 tutoring”

I am a Qualified Science Teacher (Biology & Chemistry specialist), with over thirteen years’ experience in academia and the education sector. My goal is simple - to help students who struggle with science develop confidence and pass their exams.

I have worked with students from a range of backgrounds and abilities including tutoring students identified as underachieving. As a Qualified Teacher, I am fully conversant with all major exam boards (Edexcel, AQA and OCR).

I love working with students in a 1 to 1 setting as it provides the opportunity to better identify their needs and use appropriate teaching strategies to bring out the best in them.

So, if you have a child at KS3 or KS4 who needs help with science feel free to get in touch.

I have known Sylvia for almost a decade, having worked with her professionally on some ventures and also developing a friendship.

I know Sylvia to be a highly experienced professional, with high level scientific training and many years of experience of both in class teaching to students of a wide range of abilities, and private tutoring.

Sylvia tailors her communication and teaching style to the specific needs of individual students, which improves the productivity of the sessions and the results for the students. I would strongly recommend her to anyone considering her services.
