Personal Description:
I am a very positive individual that likes to carry out tasks efficiently. I feel that I am a motivator that can relate to a diverse range of people from my experiences from travelling and working in a variety of environments also I have worked with children from different backgrounds and educational levels and with my specific tailored programme of study I can help your child excel beyond your expectations.

Teaching Experience:

I have relevant experience with GCSE and A-level students from one to one tutoring to small group teaching of up to 4. I also have taught English previously when travelling in Asia.

Tutoring Approach:

From my years of experience of tutoring I find that confidence is vital towards success, which I instill in all my tutees.

My style of tutoring is very interactive with visual aids and diagrams with clear concise logical explanations of concepts and theories of the topics to be taught.

My strategy involves building a solid foundation in topics with a step-by-step approach where the basics are covered to ensure that at advanced stages, the tutee can excel.

If the tutee is unclear with a certain problem, breakdown of the problem into individual steps and working though each step with the tutee until the answer is derived to ensure clear understanding in approaching and conquering problems.

Personal Description:
I am a senior epidemiologist within a healthcare organisation and I have studied biology, biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, parasitology and epidemiology at both under-graduate and post-graduate level. I also have a Master's in Public Health. I am interestested primarily in human disease and work on vaccine-preventable diseases, infection and associated Human Papillomavirus-driven cancers. I have taught and lectured to 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year undergraduates and to Master's students. I am fairly strict with regards to attention to detail and I believe that it is important to write accurately and in a concise but salient fashion. I am able to read, write and speak fluent French. I love mountaineering and ultra-marathons.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a STEM ambassador for West of Scotland for the last 3 years, teaching biology and basic molecular biology, microbiology and immunology to primary and secondary school children.

Lecturing duties at Strathclyde, Edinburgh and Glasgow University on molecular biology/microbiology/immunology in context of public health.

Module Leader for Outbreak Management and Epidemiology modules for M.Sc. in Infection Control, University of Highlands & Islands

Tutoring Approach:

Relaxed - it is crucial to see how the student thinks and take it from there. Everybody is different and in order to understand where the difficulties may lie, one must take the time to appraise how the student is thinking and which areas are causing the most problems. Using a number of examples, it can often be revealing to the student when one thinks of a scenario in a different way. However, it is imperative that the student appreciates that the attainment of knowledge and the ability to reason and apply that knowledge comes from drive, enthusiasm and structured revision. After tutoring, I normally arrange for students to meet with my contacts in the field of biology and public health so that they may gain some extra practical experience and/or some work experience before their next career step. I have also tutored students who are at various points on the autism spectrum.

Personal Description:
I am a masters student currently studying towards a Masters in Public Health Nutrition at Queen Margaret University, and a science graduate with a Bachelor of Science, Open from the Open University specialising in molecular and cell biology with additional interests in psychology, neuroscience, infectious disease and chemistry.

I love science, especially life sciences such as biology and health science, and spend a lot of my personal time researching new developments and techniques in scientific investigation. As a tutor, this means I have a background understanding to help you to understand how we know what we know about biology, psychology and the sciences in general. My enthusiasm guarantees that no tutoring session will ever be monotonous or boring and my alternative approaches to learning, memorisation and revision will help you to achieve your full potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring other adult learners online, I have also tutored at Intermediate 2 level and Higher as well as university level and take great pride in frequently improving marks significantly enough to take several students from failing the main exam to a B or above at resit! I also have every day tutoring experience dealing with the thousand and one questions put to me by my six year old son!

I also toured with The Edinburgh International Science Festival as a science communicator working with children from primary 4 through to 7 in 2013 as part of their Generation Science Tour, I feel this has given me a valuable insight into how to make science accessible and fun.

Tutoring Approach:

I take an interactive approach and try to find the best method for each student. For some this may be drawing, diagrams or flow charts, others the use of modeling to help with understanding, some may learn more effectively using text books or written tutoring techniques. I also make use of a wide range of freely available resources such as videos and interactive quizzes to reinforce the learning process. All of this is provided in line with the curriculum for excellence requirements.

Personal Description:
After completing my D.Phil from the University of Oxford, I worked for 7 years as a Senior Biologist for a small drug discovery company where I was responsible for screening new drug targets in tissue models for human disease. Over the years I've had so many comments from students/colleagues about my ability to break subjects down to ease understanding, and coupled with my passion for science and sharing that with others I decided to change career and become a full-time science tutor. I've never looked back!

I am also a freelance examiner for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) - examining is invaluable to my role as a science tutor and to the development of my students' abilities in preparation for their examinations. It has taught me to understand the very specific focus of each syllabus as a whole, to read for the specific aim of relevant text, and to concentrate not just on surface comprehension but to expand science beyond basic skills.

I have many hobbies but particularly enjoy outdoor pursuits including: sailing, mountaineering, climbing, mountain biking and running. Most of my free time though is spent with my wonderful husband and beautiful tots!

Teaching Experience:

During my time researching at Oxford, I tutored an array of students in Biochemistry, Biology, Genetics, Human Science and Medicine.

I have vast tutoring experience at both GCSE, AS/A2 level covering all UK exam specifications, including IB.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is informal, working with each student to improve their approach to learning whilst maintaining motivation. At the end of the day, learning should be fun!

I usually charge a very small travel fee to cover the cost of fuel.

Personal Description:
I'm a young, open-minded, Italian girl.
Even if I graduated in Life Sciences, I always had a particular talent for languages.
I love reading and writing, so much that I made a regular activity out of it, managing a website of book reviews.

Teaching Experience:

I spent the last year (2012/2013) tutoring a French boy - 12 years old - who just arrived in England, therefore not able to speak English at all. After one month of my tutoring, he was able to successfully pass the admission test at the local Grammar School.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching is mostly about communication.
When tutoring, I make a point in being the most clear and open-minded as possible, to make it not just easy, but also entertaining to learn the daily lesson.
In addition to that, most of my effort is into finding the best way for the children to self-improve and organize their learning method, so to reach a new level of independence, even when learning their least beloved subject.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Jared, an enthusiastic 22 year old recent graduate with a first class degree in Biomedicine. I have been learning biology and life sciences for the past 10 years and hope to continue when I start a neuroscience masters. Having not stopped starting secondary school I am educated in all three sciences including maths up to GCSE level, chemistry and maths up to AS level and Biology to A level, and am confident at providing tuition in all of these areas.

Currently I am going over A level maths and chemistry and wouldn't hesitate to provide tutoring in these areas if needed. Additionally I am on the receiving end of tuition, having started learning German and am looking at starting BSL lessons in the near future.

Based in the Basildon area, I am able to travel within the local area using either my quick set of legs, my somewhat rusty mountain bike or good old public transport. I am free throughout the daytime at both weekdays and weekends, however my weekdays are likely to be filled soon, but evening tuition is not a problem

Teaching Experience:

Previously I have mentored several students who struggled with their GCSE maths and science and required the necessary C grades to gain entry into College. Whilst at university I helped local A level biology and/or chemistry students gain top grades by filling in any gaps in their knowledge and clarifying parts of the curricula they were not confident with.

Job wise, I am pursuing a teaching assistant position and currently volunteer in a local school science department, where I help prepare for science lessons and assist in demonstrations. As a result I am still in the know how regarding exam boards curriculum

Tutoring Approach:

My approach focusses on restoring confidence and making sure students maintain high expectations. I find exposure to exam papers, although thankfully not in such strict conditions, is incredibly effective in preparing students for their exams and helps overcome those pesky exam fears. Knowing the curricula is great by marks on exam papers matter, and it is a great feeling to know that when you sit the exam you know what to expect and how to answer correctly.

As science is a visual subject I try to add as many practical and integrative elements to my tutoring, which I find makes the subject matter much more memorable and less dry.

I am open to tutoring/answering any questions via skype/email/phone.

Personal Description:
Teaching is a something I love doing, I completed my GCSE's, A-level's, Access to Business and currently a 4th year student undergraduate studying Accounting & Management with Finance at University of London (Birkbeck College). I am friendly, approachable to all because of my extrovert personality. I play football, the ukulele, sing and cook in my spare time which is rare because I work full time as a Production, Quality and Compliance analyst and study part-time in the evenings. I am available to teach Maths, English, Science, French up to GCSE standards.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students from my church on a one-to-one basis who were preparing for exams and the experince and achievemens of these students has encouraged me to broaden my capacity to impart acquiring minds.

Tutoring Approach:

I take time to see what the issue is in understanding the problem. Then I try different ways to correct the issue. For example, by breaking down the problem to the basics, then building up in difficulty then providing varying questions in difficulty; until the student is able to confidently attempt exam questions. I hope to develop the confidence of my students, as well as develop their skills through using resources like worksheets, CGP books and exam resources that are relevant.

Personal Description:
I have been a professional biologist for over 20 years, both as a teacher and a research scientist. I am an expert in animal behaviour and evolution, but have a thorough knowledge throughout the discipline of biology. My work has taken me all over the world, but especially to Africa and the Americas. I am an enthusiastic, upbeat person, and relate well to young people of all ages. I have recently re-settled back in Scotland after spending several years working in the United States. My working hours are flexible, so I am in an ideal position to take on a tutoring role.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced biology/science teacher. I have taught at St. Andrews University, the Open University, and at the State University of New York, where I was employed as a Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor. I have also taught in both state and private schools in Scotland and have led many residential field courses in tropical biology, in Uganda, Madagascar, Peru and Costa Rica. In addition to my formal teaching commitments, I have privately tutored university students and school pupils, including some with Special Needs. I am familiar with new curricular developments in UK education and, more specifically, with the Curriculum for Excellence.

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to develop a positive relationship between tutor and tutee, and I have a friendly and approachable manner. Every tutee requires a personalised approach and, as a tutor, I try to respond to individual needs and learning styles, modifying my teaching methods as appropriate. I bring my wide personal experience to my tutorials, and encourage active learning by helping the tutee to work through problem solving activities. The bottom line is that I love science and, especially, biology and I work hard to convey this enthusiasm to everyone I teach; after all, if you develop an interest in something, you are more likely to learn about it!
