Full time qualified science teacher. I have been qualified to teach science for the last four years. I am a graduate of the University of Reading where I read for a Bachelors in Biochemistry and then further study of Chemisty to ensure I had a secure groundings in the specifics of A Level Chemistry. I then completed a PGCE at St Mary's.
I have a strong working knowledge of AQA Core, Additional & Further Additional Science and the new AQA specification first to be examined in 2018.
I have been tutoring for the last three years, every year my tutees have achieved above their target and have improved at least two grades. Most recently a C in AQA Chemistry to an A* and D grades in Core & Additional Science to B grades.
A typical tutoring session revolves around initial knowledge testing, to the point explanations of topics and coaching on how to answer examination questions and applying knowledge.
