Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have18 years experience of teaching A level Biology/Human Biology and GCSE Science and Maths to mixed ability students. As an A level and GCSE EXAMINER for the OCR and AQA exam boards, I have a very good insight into how students need to focus and orientate their learning so as to maximise their exam marks in each area of the syllabus. I am enthusiastic about Biology/Science/Maths, which I am told comes across in my teaching. I have always enjoyed the personal tutor role that comes with sixth form teaching and can offer expertise on exam techniques, revision skills and unpicking the more challenging parts of the course syllabus. I am patient, a good communicator and can organise a focused programme to address students' particular learning needs. I am available to tutor in the day and evening. I have BSL level 2 and have experience of teaching deaf/ hearing impaired students.

Yes I have an up to date DBS/CRB Certificate.

Maths GCSE
Sally provided an excellent learning platform for my son. Not only was she able to bring clarity to the subject but learning was always valued and seen as being fun.

E.Heaver

Biology A level
My daughter found Sally very approachable and helpful. She was
struggling with her A2 Biology and Sally was able to help her with her exam technique and general understanding of the subject. She went into her exam a much more confident student and managed to achieve a grade that exceeded her expectations.
