About me

I have plenty of experience of working with GCSE and A level students from tutoring online for over a year and a half. At the same time, I have been volunteering as a science teaching assistant in a local secondary school, even teaching my own lessons. Tutoring and teaching has been incredibly enjoyable and rewarding and I can’t wait to complete my PGCE in Chemistry at Bristol next year.

I have plenty of experience of working with GCSE and A level students from tutoring online for over a year and a half. At the same time, I have been volunteering as a science teaching assistant in a local secondary school, even teaching my own lessons. Tutoring and teaching has been incredibly enjoyable and rewarding and I can’t wait to complete my PGCE in Chemistry at Bristol next year.

Aside from my passion for teaching, my enthusiasm for science, especially biology and chemistry, grows the more I study it. I chose to study geology at university because it perfectly brings together all sciences and applies it to the Earth. Geology is one of the most important and useful applications of science. As a geologist, I can provide useful, exciting, real-life applications of all sciences! Chemistry is my favourite and strongest science, though I have a strong background in all three sciences.

About my sessions

In the first meeting, I have a chat with the student about the topics they struggle with most and prioritise these first in order to boost the student’s confidence. I prepare mini ungraded tests for the first lesson that are used to identify any knowledge gaps or skills/techniques that require some attention. I spend an hour planning and tailoring each lesson to my student’s individual needs, and ensure each session has a hook, assessment for learning and covers each learning objective provid...

In the first meeting, I have a chat with the student about the topics they struggle with most and prioritise these first in order to boost the student’s confidence. I prepare mini ungraded tests for the first lesson that are used to identify any knowledge gaps or skills/techniques that require some attention. I spend an hour planning and tailoring each lesson to my student’s individual needs, and ensure each session has a hook, assessment for learning and covers each learning objective provided by a specific specification.

A typical lesson with me involves a starter activity building on last week’s work - it is important to encourage students to make connections in their learning. I explain concepts concisely and simply, making use of real-life examples to provide valuable context. Once the foundations have been covered, I guide my students through past paper questions so they can apply what they have learned and think critically. I love using diagrams, videos and figures to demonstrate important processes and experiments too. Progress is measured throughout our time tutoring, through past paper questions set in and outside of the lesson and starter/plenary activities.

I ultimately aim to be organised, efficient, but also positive and bubbly. I have had some really good feedback from students and parents about my tutoring style and friendly nature, and I feel this reflects in the progress of my tutees.
