- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach SATS Science, GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and Biology AS level.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
Food Science BSc, Secondary science PGCE (Teacher Training).
I graduated from Reading University with a food science degree followed by a teacher training course (PGCE). The degree itself involved lots of biochemistry along with process engineering. This required a very high level of knowledge of biology, chemistry and physics, which has helped me a great deal with my teaching.
- How much do you charge?
The first lesson is free if you find I am not the tutor for you.
- Where do you teach?
I teach in student homes in Derby and Derbyshire.
- When are you available?
I am available evenings, weekends and holidays.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach ages 11-18.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
If you don't understand something there is nothing wrong with asking, even if you feel silly doing it!
I consider myself a very vibrant person and I like my enthusiasm to be passed to my students. I am very dedicated and passionate about teaching, which is very transparent to my students and I believe this to be reason for my success in teaching science. I am a firm believer that all students have the ability to succeed but some need more guidance than others.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have 5 years teaching experience. In my years of teaching I have covered key stage 3 (SATS) and GCSE up to A-level. I have taught students with a huge range of abilities. To achieve success, I have used an array of teaching methods including but not limited to; I.T, auditory, visual and kinesthetic learning techniques.
I consider myself a very creative teacher. During the last year I have set up forums for discussing science topics with other students as well as making podcasts available for download. This has proved extremely successful, as far as being mentioned in a national science magazine.
During the last few years I exceeded target grades set by the school for both KS3 and KS4. I believe this stems from my passion for the subject and my creativity in my teaching methods.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

- Where and with whom did you train?
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
GTC- General teaching council.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
I currently have 4 students up to GCSE level.
