I have 1000s of hours in helping students achieve success in A-Level biology as a tutor and biology teacher for over 18 years.  A-levels are high stake exams with future university places and careers dependent on good grades.  If your child is struggling with:


•Understanding biological concepts

•Understanding exam questions

•How to write answers that gain full marks

•Exam technique

•Applying their understanding and knowledge


Then as an experienced A-Level biology teacher, I can help your child improve in these areas.  


I am able to tutor all UK exam boards, have decades worth of past papers and tailored notes specific to each exam board.  


I can tutor online where I use zoom and a digital whiteboard to teach students.  I provide a video recording of the lesson and digital exam papers and notes that students can access via the student portal.  Students find the videos particularly useful for revision and reviewing their understanding at a later date.  


If online tutoring is not the option for you, then I can offer in-person tuition in either my home or at your home within the Bridgend County Borough, South Wales.    


My Approach To Teaching A-Level Biology


I use lots of different teaching strategies.  The strategies used are specific to each students learning needs.  One of the most important strategies I use is to explain complicated biological concepts simply and clearly.  Here are some more specific strategies that I use.  


1.  Socratic Questioning

Written or verbal questions cannot be overstated. They are a powerful way to find out if a student understands the concepts.  questioning also gives the opportunity to allow the students to think about the concepts, recall facts and make links between concepts.   Simple questions that start with: how, why and what are very effective. 


2.  Feedback

Without feedback, students will never make progress.  Feedback has the highest impact factor of 8 in helping students learn.  I give detailed feedback on students work so they can improve.  


3.  Exam Technique

Without being taught how to answer a question, most students will not achieve good grades in their exams.  This is a skill that I take very seriously in preparing my students for.  I teach Comprehension skills, Word analysis, the meaning of assessment objectives and how they relate to the difficulty of the questions, the meaning of different command words so students can understand what a question is asking them to do.  I have decades worth of past exam papers and I make these available to all my students.  I work through many past questions to make sure students have excellent exam techniques. 


4. Making Links

The highest grades will only be achieved if students can apply their understanding to different situations.  Through questioning and tailored activities, I prepare students to master this vital skill.  


5. Retrieval Practise

We learn by making links to knowledge we already have.  Retrieval practice forces students to actively recall information from their memory.  When this is done the memory is strengthened and information is forgotten less.  This is a very important thing for students to do.  I produce tailed activities and puzzles to help students with this strategy.  


6. Maths & Prac

Maths make up 10% of the marks in a question paper and 15% of the marks are practical based questions.  It is so important that students have good abilities in these areas.  I  always ensure students can achieve in these areas.
