I have been tutoring and teaching for over 14 years, and over half of that has been spent in the position of Head of Science or assistant principal. I believe that I am easy to be around and students feel comfortable when working with me and are confident that they can ask any question, no matter how silly they may perceive it to be. I always try to think of relevant and engaging ways to tackle a topic to enable all abilities to understand.

Having left teaching in September 2018 to spend more time with my baby daughter, I've set up my own business that designs lesson resources for other teachers. This not only means that I have access to hundreds of resources that I share during lessons to back up the learning but also means that I'm aware of the intricacies and key details of all of the specifications, including the International ones

Experience

Over the 14 years as a teacher, I worked at three schools across London and Kent with significantly different demographics. I've taught Biology at A-level to all of the exam boards and GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Combined Science. Last year, 3 of the 5 A-level Biology students who I tutored online achieved A* and are now studying medicine and dentistry at university.
