« Emma has tutored all three of my children from 11+ through to A level biology. She always finds the right balance of inspiring, motivating and teaching for each of my children’s very different needs and learning styles. She is wonderfully helpful and very approachable, no question is ever to silly and the children really enjoy their lessons with her. »

24 year old secondary biology teacher offering engaging GCSE biology lessons in London/online

Methodology

As a secondary biology teacher, I give lessons to students with a range of abilities - all the way up to GCSE Level 9 students. This means that I am able to explain difficult concepts in multiple ways, to suit the learner.

I aim for my lessons to build confidence for the student.

I am knowledgable about the AQA GCSE Biology Exam Board, and ensure that my lessons always meet the expectation of the examiners.

Lesson content directly matches exam language and technique, and I always include working through past paper questions with students, to ensure that they understand how to maximise the number of marks that will be awarded to them.

Experience

I am a secondary science teacher working in a top London state school, with a specialism in Biology at GCSE and A Level. I also teach KS3 science. I have also taught private individual lessons since February 2018. My most recent private students were highly successful: one achieved a Level 9 in GCSE Biology, and another student's A Level biology success led to her accepting an offer to study Biology at University.
