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.
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.
Raising the academic attainment of students has been a deep passion and successful achievement - as a founding former headteacher of a school for 4- 16-year-olds (ten years), a teacher, and a tutor. I have recent English teaching experience at a school (and remotely), in addition to marking GCSE English Language and literature papers. Therefore I am at ease in teaching both key stages three and four students. Over a ten-year period, 98% of my tutees have gained entry into the elite Grammar Schools (a few students gaining scholarships each year too). During the last two years, 97% of my English Language tutees have achieved levels 7-9 in GCSE English Language and 96% in GCSE English Literature.
I am well resourced in teaching face to face or online. An initial consultation with parents, the tutee, in addition to a view of the school reports enables me to gather necessary information about each student. Importantly, the tutorials enable me to get first-hand knowledge of each student enabling me to plan my lessons for the individual.
I look forward to working with you to raise the attainment of your child.

I have worked within education since 2001 as an English Teacher, ASD Specialist Teacher, ASD Lead Teacher, SENDCO and private tutor both in the UK and overseas.
I taught English for 5 years in Holyhead and then relocated to Cairo, Egypt, where I worked as an English teacher in an international school for 4 years teaching KS3, GCSE and ‘A’ Level.
Following that I set up my own business as a tutor and delivered tuition for adults for Business English, EAL sessions for an Engineering company and a variety of 1:1 English tuition for KS2, KS3, KS4 and KS5.
I then worked in Costa Rica at a British School, teaching English at KS3, KS4 and IB for KS5.
From there, I returned to the UK where I undertook supply in English and other subjects for a period of time.
In 2017 I took on the role of Specialist Teacher in Charge of ASD Provision in Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, where I oversaw and ran an ASD Unit for EHCP students. This post further developed when I became ASD Lead Teacher where I was responsible for all children at the academy with ASD.
I was appointed SENDCO in February 2020 at Ebor Academy Filey in North Yorkshire and have worked there for 2 years. During that time, I taught English at KS3 and KS4, was Designated Teacher for Looked After Children, set up an internal alternative provision and managed our fledgling EAL provision.

You have the option of 1- to-1 sessions or being part of a small focused group. Any questions can be sent via messages and look forward to helping your child thrive and learn to fulfil their potential.

My name is Dina G., a highly experienced and qualified teacher. I have over 10 years of teaching/tutoring experience combined. I have an excellent record of pupils who get top exam results. Most of my pupils had gone on to the universities/colleges of their choice and continued to do well, confident that they are capable of doing great. My pupils consider me their mentor who always got their back. I encourage them to be confident in tackling on challenging Maths questions and not afraid to make mistakes as that’s part of the great learning process. I endeavour to make my pupils’ lessons fun and engaging as that is how I get the best from them. I have a degree in Mathematical Studies with honours (BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Studies), Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in Secondary Maths and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
I'm a top Cambridge maths graduate and computer science PhD, ex-Google, Microsoft and NASA, offering online maths tuition for A-level and Oxbridge-entrance, as well as GCSE for students aiming for a high grade in order to do STEM A-levels.
I went to King's College, Cambridge, on an open scholarship, and got a top first in maths, coming third in my year out of several hundred maths students across the whole university. I then switched to computer science for my postgraduate work, gaining a diploma with distinction and a PhD a few years later. After that, I spent 35 years in the tech industry, doing a mixture of research and software engineering. I worked on problems as varied as speech and language processing, genomics, online advertising and medical image analysis. Among many other publications I have a joint-first-author paper in Nature, one of the world's top scientific journals.
All this was great fun, but I always longed to do a lot more teaching than I had the opportunity for, and to return to mathematics itself rather than just using it when necessary for writing code. So that's what I've been doing since late 2021. I live in Malvern, Worcestershire, with my wife and teenage son.
I began studying Economics at a comprehensive school in the midlands in 1983. Nearly 40 years on and I still have a love for the subject and have been teaching it for almost all of my working life. For the last 18 years I have been teaching Economics at GCSE and A level at a top Essex grammar school.
I offer online/f2f learner tutoring and support in GCSE/A level Maths, Computing, Business, Economics, Sociology, and Psychology. I am also an accredited performance coach
I am a fully qualified (DBS checked) English teacher (I semi retired in September 2019).
I've taught English at secondary level for over 35 years. I am fully up to date with exam assessment critieria and, having worked as an AQA exam marker, I know exactly what the exam board looks for.
Over the past few years I've also worked as a private tutor with students from Years 5 to 9, successfully helping them to consolidate any aspects of English needed (including Verbal Reasoning for the 11+ exam). I have also had success as a tutor with a number of students at GCSE (AQA exam board English Language and English Literature) and A Level (AQA English Literature).
I tailor tuition to the individual student's needs and by working with them one to one I am able to help them realise their potential.

22 years of secondary mathematics experience including one to one work on motivation and resilience.
I am a qualified Maths Teacher and an online Tutor. I use a variety of techniques and resources in order to teach and inspire minds. I am fully DBS cleared and have taught through the changes in education over the years and am fully knowledgeable in the current 9-1 GCSE specification. I am comfortable teaching all walks of learners and try my 100% best to make sure that learning is relevant, engaging and fun.
I have a plethora of resources so that students hit their target grade or beyond. In my experience, students tend look at questions as a big problem rather than thinking that questions are made up of smaller steps within a problem. Each student will receive an individual plan at the start of lesson one.
I am also a GCSE Expert Examiner for Edexcel, marking both Foundation and Higher Maths. I also teach at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 2.
I am able to teach online and comfortably at your home, however, due to the current situation with COVID, I prefer to teach online. I use a Huoin pen and tablet with an onscreen whiteboard. I will provide full resources; questions, answers, solutions and exam papers relevant to your exam specification. I teach all topics in Maths and keep up to date with any new developments with exam boards.
I have been a Middle Leader, a Lead Practitioner, a Director of Learning, and have led successful STEM classes and am passionate about the subjects surrounding Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. I also run a debate team at my current school; have been a finalist at The University of Leeds three consecutive years with “Solutions for the Planet” programme and have taken students as finalists at The Houses of Parliament with a solution on sustainability.
Maths and physics lessons in London, UK.
I am an experienced English teacher who has worked in secondary schools for the over 20 years. I am also an AQA Lead Examiner and and Adviser to more than 150 schools for English Language A Level. I have Advanced Diplomas (post degree) in both Language and Literacy and in Child Development. English Language is my passion though, of course, I have taught GCSE Literature as part of my professional role in school and I love teaching the texts associated with the requirements of the course. I enjoy working with teenagers at both GCSE and A Level though my specialist Language knowledge is particularly relevant to A Level Language students. Increasingly, however, this in depth knowledge is relevant to GCSE English students. I am happy to work with all levels and relish the opportunity to engage with individuals who are seeking to increase their knowledge and understanding of the key requirements for both GCSE and A level courses. I am happy to work online to work one to one with pupils and help them to develop their skills through close monitoring and feedback.

Science and Maths for GCSE and A Level students, KS3, KS4, KS5.
Hi, I am a primary school teacher who lives in Sidcup. I currently teach in Bromley.
My experience is mainly in years 1-4 but can support the whole primary curriculum.
I can offer tutoring or babysitting.
It was a long journey, from Sidmouth to Halifax via Singapore, Greece, Spain, Finland, Brunei, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia and Libya. I have worked for the military (5 years), oil and gas industry (13 years), academic institutions (15 years) and other stuff including preparation for English GCSE, UCLES and IELTS exams (the missing years). I spent the last 12 years of my career working as an English lecturer at Tampere University in Finland. Whilst there, we had the time and opportunity to organise the thesis-writing courses online, so by the time Covid arrived and everyone went into the remote 'online teaching' mode, our courses and materials were already established and ongoing. Covid allowed us to tweak the methodology and presentation tools, so that I now have a tried and tested method for teaching academic writing online, which is what I now specialise in. I also offer a proofreading service using a similar approach, which is also very effective.
So, if you have to write an English article or text, or if you want to generally improve your English writing and presentation skills, please get in touch. The first online lesson will be a GTKY session (free) during which we can get to know each other and set some parameters and targets for the course; much better than trying to explain it all in writing. If we find we are mutually compatible, then we'll set up a schedule and get started. I look forward to heaing from you.
I am a quite young ESOL Teacher with only few years of experience and therefore I'm still very passionate about my job. I do lessons online using Zoom. I mostly teach English adults and teenagers from Elementary to Upper-intermediate levels. I'll be happy to be useful to you.
