Personal Description:
I have a degree in Pharmacology and a qualified teacher of Science from KS1 to KS5. I am also an examiner; I mark GCSE papers. I am a very hard working individual who is easily motivated and always ready to adapt and learn new skills. Having had various opportunities to carry out a variety of laboratory assessments as key components of my course, I am able to work as an individual or as part of a team. As a part of my degree I developed essential and transferable scientific skills. My project title was 'Synthesis and Biochemical Evaluation of Heat Shock Protein Hsp90 inhibitors on MCF-7 breast cancer cells'. Studies on how drugs are discovered, developed and used to treat disease gave me an understanding of how the human body functions and how drugs can be used to affect these functions. I have experience teaching from KS1 to KS5 and open university students. I enjoy travelling; visited New York, New Jersey, Netherlands, Scotland, Switzerland, Austria, Spain and Nigeria. I get pleasure from working out at the gym regularly and I love swimming. I also enjoy studying christian books and other inspirational books.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently at an inner city school in Portsmouth. It has 900 students on roll. I have over 6 years of experience working with people with challenging behaviour, dyslexia and autism. Currently I am teaching Key stage 3 and 4. Teaching pure Biology lessons to separate Science; Physics, Chemistry and Biology to core and Additional Science students. For key stage 3 I have followed the QCA guidelines and for key stage 4 the WJEC examination board. I have written schemes of work for year 11 students to cover additional Sciences and rewrote schemes of work to meet the recent curriculum changes key stage 3 and 4. I was also involved in producing resources to be shared in the department about hydrocarbons, polymers, smart materials, ammonia fertilizers and many other kS3 topics.

Prior to this experience my first teaching placement during my PGCE year was at a mixed comprehensive with approximately 900 students on role. I taught Biology, Chemistry and Physics at key stage 3 and team taught for key stage 4. This prepared me well for my second placement where I taught all three Sciences across both key stages. My second placement was also at a mixed comprehensive school with approximately 600 students on roll. I also was involved in Individual Student Assessments (ISA). Additionally as a trainee teacher I regularly was involved in school base activities to encourage students. I was a Student Ambassador for Portsmouth University. It gave me a lot of personal satisfaction and developed my communication skills. I also attended the University of East London gifted and talented day in 2008; which was attended by a number of schools from the borough of Redbridge. It was an inspiring day of learning and fun and I have taken elements from that day into my classroom practice today.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is to first of all find out my students weaknesses and turn it into their strengths; I feel that the study of Neuropharmacology as part of my undergraduate degree in Pharmacology was very relevant to teaching. I have a secured subject knowledge with all three Sciences. I also like to bring the best of people, by being patient and understanding. I have the ability to cope and work under pressure, understanding of the challenges that need overcoming to learn, ability to take ownership of material and adapt it to suit the learning styles and approach of individual.

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.

B.Sc Botony, Zoology, Chemistry ( Hons )
Beta Kappa chi ( National Scientific Honor Society, Theta chapter, USA)
Associate Member of Chartered Management Institute, UK

Teaching Experience:

Teaching Experience:
Since I have been a student all my life so did not get a chance to tutor. However I have experience to work with young people as a "Tutor" in the state run TRIO program in USA. This job has given me a clear understanding and significance of a good education, promoting effective learning, teaching and personal development. This first hand skill of working with children of school age has made me patient, tolerant and has also given me an ability to respond positively to special educational needs. Having this experience would definitely facilitate me to translate my knowledge better to pupils and that surely would aid them to understand the basic concepts.

I have taught the undergrads in Virginia State University, USA under the state run TRIO program

Tutoring Approach:

open to new ideas, initiator, like the tutee to solve the problem himself, but be a good guide,I believe in teaching patiently and with dedication. My approach to teaching is straightforward and begins with generating questions and curiosity within young people's minds so that they can think well.

Personal Description:
I graduated from University of Leeds as Masters in Bio-science in 2011. I have worked as a research technician (Faculty of biological sciences at University of Leeds) since my graduation. I have been tutoring on weekends while I was working as a research technician, as I love helping students with their grades. I have demonstrated undergraduates in the laboratory and helped them understand science from a pracical point of view. I have decided to dedicate myself as a private tutor for sometime from beginning of march. Every student needs certain kind of guidance which is different from other fellow student in his/her class. Understanding the nature of the student and helping them with their difficulties is what I do. I am a very patient girl and very good with adoloscents with their behaviour. From my experinece of tutoring and having a brother who is appearing for A level this year, I have gathered that teenagers are more comfortable taking help from tutors than parents.

Teaching Experience:

I have earlier taught students of age group 11-16 and helped them gain confidence in their weak subjects.
I was a research technician at University of Leeds so I had to demonstrate and teach them how to do things.
I love science and have higher education in field of biological science,so I am efficient and capable to teach kids the basics of science.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel tutoring is all about understanding the way the student grasps the concepts and implements. I prefer the fun-way of learning and remembering things. In this way the student remembers the basics and never forgets rather than practicing without understanding main concept. I feel once you make the student comfortable and make them realize how they should approach particular subjects, the student develops his own skills of learning. Its all about interacting with the student and finding a way so as how to make a student get intersted in particular subject. The moment the student is interested in the subject, its just matter of time that they start learning and help themselves.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying my PhD in Biomedicine at the University of Manchester, and hope to progress on to an academic career in cellular signalling, as this forms the basis of my research interests. My current project involves looking at a type of RNA called microRNA that is known to regulate the transcription of DNA, and how this influences the poor pregnancy outcomes that often occur during gestational diabetes. This will hopefully lead to treatments that may prevent the difficulties that occur for both mother and child under these circumstances.

I have not been in Manchester too long, though I love the city and I am planning to stay here for a number of years, as it is now my adopted home!

Teaching Experience:

I taught for three years before I left to do my PhD in a successful secondary school. I taught all three science subjects to GCSE level and taught biology to A-level. I have also studied a degree and a masters within the life sciences/biomedical sciences, and I am now studying for my PhD which has allowed me to gain some demonstrator experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that science is perceived as difficult, but is accessible to the majority of students if they have the drive and the capability to believe in their own ability. It is one of the most important subjects to understand as it will give you a critical, enquiring mind throughout your life and will also look very good on your CV when applying for jobs! This makes me very passionate when it comes to teaching science to those that want to do better in their exams, as I believe pretty much any student can do it if they are willing to believe in themselves and their ability. I feel that interactive approaches, with the student being pushed are conducive to learning as this enables them to think about questions and get them right, or make mistakes and learn how to get them right the next time. Mistakes are often very important to make as they are learning experiences, and need to be made before any formal exam!

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.

I aim to make a difference to every child and ensure that he/she becomes independent and self-confident with the skills and tools required to develop. I have the ability and resources to assess each child and then put together a progamme and timetable of the areas that need attention. I provide regular re-inforcement and praise and give feedback to the child and parents.
I have extensive knowledge of the educational curriculum and have had much experience of SATS papers and Common Entrance examinations.
Being a mother of 2 boys I know how children behave and how to get the best from them.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently providing 1:1 numeracy and literacy tuition in two Leeds schools. This involves one hour per child for a 10 week programme. I also run private tuition lessons from my own home or visiting children.
I am also a supply teacher for local teaching agencies.
Prior to this I worked from February 2000- September 2010 at Gateways School, Harewood, Leeds an independent school for girls. I was a form teacher for years 3,4,5 and 6 but specialised in RE and Latin.
From September 1997- August 2000 I was a supply teacher for Leeds Girls' High School, Leeds Grammar School and various state schools.
From September 1994 - August 1997 I was a form teacher at Beech House School, Headingley, Leeds.
From September 1990 to 1995 whilst having 2 boys of my own I taught various children from the ages of 4-11
From September 986 to January 1990 I was a form teacher for years 5 and 6 at Leeds Girls'High School

Tutoring Approach:

The main purpose of one to one tuition is to diagnose and address gaps in a child's learning and any misconceptions which may be deep rooted. It also provides a powerful opportunity to address personal and internalised processes and involves equipping the learner with appropriate strategies, new ways of thinking about a problem.
My first task is to find out from the parent/s what are their concerns about their child and what they are expecting. I would provide details of my extensive experience in providing 1:1 tuition and the success of achieving a programme that suits the individual needs of the child. A programme of lessons would be planned and then delivered using the following lesson format: -
*sharing objectives and learning outcomes with the child,
*identifying the pupils' knowledge, strategies and skills,
*modelling the process to be developed by talking it through,
*allowing the pupil to explore the activity independently as I observe and interact identifying the strengths and areas of misconception for attention and discussion
* revise the work, refining the child's knowledge, understanding and skills
* provide an opportunity to consolidate learning through further practice and discussion
* child reflects on the progress made towards the learning objective, the strategies used and how the skills and knowledge can be applied back in the classroom
*set targets

I would plan a range of varied activities to engage the pupil and support learning. I would provide opportunities for the pupil to talk, rehearse ideas and ask questions. The key to good practice is to praise successes to boost self confidence. I have a thorough understanding of what the pupil needs to be able to do to move forward.

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 am a well published Stem Cell Scientist at Imperial College London, currently working on regenerative medicine-based solutions for Osteoarthritis. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of biomedical research, biology and chemistry teaching and scientific writing. I have been fascinated with the way human mind works and learn - having tried several teaching techniques with my students here at Imperial College, I am confident that students under my guidance and their hard work usually stay within top 5% of the class.

Teaching Experience:

I have had a number of MSc and MRes students in the past and have had primary, secondary, GCSE and A-level, and college teaching experience in the past. Currently I am supervising a number of GCSEs, A-levels, undergraduates and masters students and lab-based research projects / theses.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student has his / her positives and negatives - I first analyse them and then slowly work on their negative points (with a good push to their confidence levels). Additionally, I believe for understanding any science subject (biology, chemistry or physics), learning fundamentals is extremely important for students to further understand complexity of life (more important if they choose to do biology / biomedical science / medicine / life science). So, my approach has always been understanding things more analytically.

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:
I am a recent Microbiology graduate, currently working in a leading veterinary sciences laboratory, with previous experience working in the Science department of a local Grammar school.

Having tutored throughout my degree, and not being long out of education myself, I empathise with students and understand the problems and challenges they face with certain aspects of their course. With a fresh and modern approach, I guide pupils to achieve a fuller understanding of their subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have been regularly tutoring GCSE and A-Level over the past 4 years, and have had pupils with a wide range of abilities and backgrounds, all of which have had successful exam results.

I am also a qualified TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teacher, and use the skills from this to present Science lessons in a clear and concise manner.

Having worked in a school as a Science technician, I am also aware of the challenges pupils face with the current topics and common problems which regularly arise. With this hindsight I aim to tailor lessons to tackle problems head on, and provide the time to learn which cannot always be achieved in a busy classroom.

Tutoring Approach:

I always work to a plan, and tailor each lesson to what the pupil wants to explore. With a wealth of materials, I aim to provide the student with the information they need, and provide my own notes designed to help the students with their individual problem.

Understanding the importance of these examination periods, the course syllabus is the backbone to the lessons, and regular quizzes are had during the lessons to test progress and understanding.

Personal Description:
I have a BSc in medicinal chemistry (1st class Hons)

This means that aside from losing myself in research papers and a lab for four years, I can give sound advice on personal development, exam technique and revision skills.
Having studied medicinal chemistry, a large part of my degree covered human physiology, disease and drugs which is why I also offer biology as a secondary tuition.

Above A-level my speciality is in organic and synthetic chemistry, I can help with all aspects including mechanistic rationale, retrosynthesis and enantio/ stereoselective syntheses as well as the all important dissertation/ viva.

Academic transcripts or examples of my work are available on request.

I'm easy going, clinical and analytical which are all important traits for good academic progression.

I am willing to travel for sessions although travel expenses will need to be covered.

Teaching Experience:

Creating a colourful life - Loughborough University
These courses ran to educate children between primary and A-level in various aspects of inorganic chemistry. Topics covered were designed to show the diversity of chemistry applied industrially to things such as thermochromic paints, fingerprinting and trace detection.

A-level chemistry tuition - Private tuition 2012 - 2014
I have already tutored a small number of students who have gone on to successfully complete there A - levels with progression to UK universities.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe strongly that no two people learn in the same manner; while some respond well to repeat readings by themselves, other people learn well through lecturing and taking notes. It's fundamental to get an understanding of this before commencing tutoring, personally i liked having spoken word followed up by practice exam questions to apply the knowledge.

Second to actually tutoring the academic aspects of science, I emphasise the importance of good exam technique. A large part of any tutoring would be aimed at ensuring the student understands what an exam question is asking and what is relevant in response - a sound knowledge with knowing how to apply it is a key to success.
