Chemistry, biology, physics and general science lessons in Maidstone, UK.
I've been a teacher and tutor for over 30 years and feel I'm just about getting the hang of it now. In addition to teaching content, I focus particularly on trying to change how my students learn, aiming to provide them with the kind of education and encouragement I would want for my own children. Not that I actually do provide that for my own children, of course; I’ll be looking for some other sucker to tutor those little monkeys. I specialise in maths and physics but also run sessions on essay writing (which concentrate on improving grammar, punctuation and structure). Most of my students are studying A-level or IB, but I also run some GCSE and 11+ sessions. If this sounds like it might work for you just drop me a line and we'll have a chat. Thanks.
I offer tuition in maths and physics up to A Level, as well as "headstart" classes.
I have been teaching GCSE Science for 21 years, Biology up to A level for 21 years, and Physics A level for 11 years. I can also help with BTEC Science coursework and exams. I have been working for a major exam board for 11 years. I believe in building good relationships being one of the most important things in teaching. When we can communicate effectively we can learn and teach effectively. Most of my teaching has been in central London so I have lots of experience dealing with challenging behaviour and facing the challenge of students who at first don't want to learn. I have had several positions of responsibility including KS3 coordinator, deputy Head of Science, Head of Science, and recently Head of post 16 Sciences and head of BTEC Science. My work with exam boards means I know how to get students to pass exams. I have taken on students currently on a U, and they have ended up getting an A, purely being taught how to answer exam questions. I have a DBS number from an enhanced child protection check.
More than 25 years exparience of teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics to GCSE. I have also taught Biology and Chemistry A-level for some time. I can work both online and at the student's home, if it is not more than 15 miles from Tunbridge Wells.
At WinA Tutors, we work independently with each student though in a group setting with an average of 4-6 students per tutor and a maximum of eight students where the learning plans are similar.
The learning plans are individually developed and agreed with the tutor and where progress is made, targets will be reviewed following periodic formative assessments.
The student is encouraged to eventually take control of his/her development plan thereby moving from a dependent to an independent learner.
