Hi, I'm Renée and I am able to provide tutoring in GCSE and A-Level Biology for OCR, AQA and Edexcel exam boards. I also have many years experience teaching GCSE and A-Level English. At higher levels I have taught academic writing at London Metropolitan University for 15 years and have tutored many students in essay writing at all levels. Previous part-time position in molecular medical research lab at the Natural History Museum. I am also a highly experienced EAP/EFL teacher and former Cambridge English Language examiner. I am able to offer a discount off my usual hourly rate if a double lesson is booked and/or a student lives particularly close to Wimbledon.

My approach to tutoring is to provide a structured lesson on a topic within the exam syllabus using a gamut of teaching techniques to help them absorb and remember. I am a formally trained teacher and my starting point is to “diagnose” my student’s needs and draw up a tailored study plan. All my lessons contain exam practice but can focus on exam practice

At this stage of the year students always want to do exam practice. I always round off my lessons with exam practice anyway but I am quite happy to work through exam papers only with students if that is what they want to do. Sometimes students want help writing assignments rather than course revision. I have 15 years experience at university level helping students with assignment.

I will discuss the plan with you the first time we meet and we can make any adjustments needed. Initially, I would deliver a structured interactive lesson around a topic on the syllabus designed to revise a subject and stimulate understanding and recall of the subject. It is important for learning to be able to discuss a topic but also to consolidate learning with written exercises.

My training includes:

BSc (Hons) Zoology, Roehampton University
BA (Hons) French and German, University of North London
MSc Microbiology, University of London
MA National and International Literatures in English
Teacher Training: RSA Diploma, DELTA and CTEFL.

Patient and skillful English teacher

Renee tutored me in English language when I was 17 when I first moved to the UK and that helped me to get into university in London to do a philosophy degree. At University she was one of my lecturers and in her class which I took as a free module, I had to dissect poetry and analyse and write about a novels from Paulo Cuelo,Thomas Hardy, JR Tolkein. During my first year at university she also tutored me outside class in my academic writing. She is really great at essay writing. She was very patient and helped me a lot.

VERY big help

Renee helped me to properly structure an essay that I had no idea on how structure. She was very patient, extremely helpful and incredibly knowledgeable on the subject. After feeling very confused concerning what the essay was asking me, after a lesson with Renee, I know feel a lot more confident and know how to tackle such a question if it were to come up again!

Amazing!

I am nearing the end of my A2 English Literature course. My exam board is Edexcel, and these exams were the first of the new spec.

I have always been sceptical about tuition, but contacting Renee was the best decision I made during exam season. She replied swiftly, asking for all the relevant information in order for her to help as soon as possible. My only regret was that I wish I had contacted her earlier in the year and had more time to work with her.

The great thing about Renee was that she was not merely someone to help with essays (which is the area that I struggled the most with) but also helped me with my confidence - which is one of the most essential things when approaching exams.

Renee also goes beyond what she has to do by supplying extra reading and areas to consider.

I would highly recommend her! She helped me so much, and should you choose her I am confident she will help you too!

Thank you so much for your time and help, Renee.
