Biology teacher with experience in International Education!

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. I am a highly motivated and dedicated Biology teacher with eight years of experience and a MSc (Research) degree in Biology from the University of Bristol.

Having taught in a number of educational settings in my home country Colombia and the UK, I incorporate a variety of research-based frameworks and strategies into my practice. These include but are not limited to Differentiated Instruction and Concept-based teaching and learning.

My tutoring style favours learners from Year 6 to further education -including mature students- and aims to empower students in their own learning. I currently teach Animal Sciences and Biology at college level and tutor GCSE and A Level Biology students.

* I am now available to support homeschooling on Thursdays and Fridays *

I am bilingual in Spanish and English and have good command of Sign Supported English. I have a Level 3 certificate in Colombian Sign Language (LSC) and British Sign Language (BSL) Level 2.

More about my background:

I have experience as a teacher in the MYP and DP programmes of the International Baccalaureate. I have also taught at one secondary mainstream school and worked as a Teaching Assistant in a Deaf School. More recently, I have started working in the Sixth Form and futher education sector, teaching A-Level Biology, Foundation Physiology, and Animal Sciences.

My qualifications include a Bachelor's degree in Biology with strong Botany and Zooology components, and a Master's by Research degree in Biology (Bat Ecology and Bioacoustics). I have attended a good number of international teaching courses with outsanding researchers in Education such as Jane E. Pollock and Lynn Erickson and am currently about to begin Waldorf/Steiner teacher training.

Excellent child-led, enthusiastic tutor

Paula is an extremely engaging tutor with an evident passion both for her subject, and for facilitating the development of young learners. Her teaching methods are geared towards the needs of each child, and she was very able to make adjustments for my daughter to fit her learning style. I was particularly impressed by her language and communication skills, as she is able to offer tuition in both Spanish and English. Her knowledge of sign language and the skills this involves also help her explain difficult concepts in a visual and spatial way, which was very useful to my daughter as this is one of the ways she learns most effectively. I would not hesitate to recommend Paula to anyone seeking a professional, personable and reliable tutor for their child.
Greatly increased confidence and competence in the subject
