Biology teacher with experience in international education

I'm a highly motivated and dedicated Biology teacher with eight years of experience. I incorporate research-based frameworks such as Differentiated Instruction and Concept-based teaching and learning into my practice.

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 AS Level (1st year) Biology students. * I am very interested in homeschooling. Please contact me to discuss how I can support homeschooling. *

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 taught in a variety of educational settings including the MYP and DP programmes of the International Baccalaureate, mainstream secondary schools, SEN schools and Further Education. My most recent experience is in the FE sector, teaching A-Level Biology, Foundation Physiology, and Animal Science.

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 outstanding people such as Jane E. Pollock, Lynn Erickson and Peter McLaren. I am currently undertaking Waldorf/Steiner teacher training.

Please do feel free to contact me with any questions. I am happy to discuss ways to make tuition fees more accessible for families with lower income.

I am currently not taking in second year A Level Biology students. Sorry for the inconvenience.

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.
