Experienced teacher at successful private school. Many years as an examiner for both biology and computing.

Happy to help in any way I can with homework, extra tuition or assistance with student concerned for their exams.
I am a qualified science teacher (PGCE, QTS) with 20 years continuous experience, the last 18 years of it in a top ranking, outstanding comprehensive. I have an honours degree in Applied Chemistry (University of Salford), PGCE (University of Portsmouth), and A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
I am passionate about my subject and love helping students to engage in science and to access the trickier parts of the subject. I have also worked on some of the basic concepts with those who really struggle and need to revisit work from Key Stage 3.
I am currently tutoring GCSE chemistry (including the triple components) and would also consider students needing help with KS3 science.
I have a very large bank of resources and can prepare tests or leveled questions for individual topics as required. You can choose whether to do some of the questions as ‘homework’ or do them together as part of the lesson.
If your child is struggling and you are unable to meet the full cost of tutoring (see below), then please get in touch and I will see what I can do to help you.

Hello my name is Annabel and I’m a second year Dentistry student and I have 3 years of formal tutoring experience an excess of 500 hours both online and in person, I work with students of all levels and most exam boards from Primary all the way up to A-Levels. I hope to share my extensive knowledge of the specifications and my experience from working with numerous examiners of all levels. After leaving education I have not stopped tutoring which a lot of my students find incredibly helpful as I can help teach from a students perspective as I have both experience first hand of the courses (including the new specification GCSEs) but also a lot of experience as a tutor.
I try to add humour, acronyms and real life examples to my lessons to really interact with my students and help cement the concepts that I am teaching, as no one is going to remember boring textbook facts! I have spent a lot of my spare time researching memory and the best ways to teach and revise after seeing myself, colleagues and current students not maximising their potential through revision and understanding. I use spaced repetition incorporating ideas I have previously taught into new lessons through mini quizzes, linking similar concepts together and allowing the student to do this themselves via prompts. Alongside this due to my knowledge of exam boards, I can spot common questions and help students to use the question to form their answer if something like a formula was forgotten. Which based on purely the exam technique tips I can provide, students have even gone up 1 level just based on www.*** ;
I hand tailor all of my lessons to the individual pupil and really listen and attempt to understand their learning style incorporating this and their own ideas into my lessons in order to make it the more effective for time and enjoyable and engaging for that student.
I look forward to hearing from you :)
