Extensive experience and a genuine passion for teaching.
After teaching and tutoring for over twenty five years, I have developed the natural rapport and skills that make learning effective and fun. As a dedicated biologist I appreciate the need to use stimulating examples and models, to fine tune understanding and application. I have a proven track record of excellent A2, AS and IGCSE results, supplemented by Scholarship and Common Entrance Preparation. Working in an admissions department I have a clear appreciation of what it takes to get into top Independent Schools in the London area.
I am patient, with a good sense of humour. In my lessons no question is a silly question!
I have over twenty years of GCSE, AS and A2 examining experience and I am an A2 Coursework Moderator.
In my leisure time I enjoy golf, mountian walking, cooking and family history.
My aim is to make sure every lesson counts. Time is valuable and I have fine tuned many topics into short bite sized chunks that are readily accessible to students. Past paper practice and advice on revision techniques are a natural part of my teaching approach.
