Hello, I am a Master of Biological Sciences graduate, with a great science, mathematics and English literature background. I have previous primary tutoring experience, and extensive experience coaching to young children.
I have a good understanding of what students respond to, and how to tell if a student has truly understood a subject.

I have a great scientific knowledge, through my degree, school studies and my natural interest in science. My experience tutoring and sports coaching has given me the necessary skills to understand when a student has genuinely understood something and when they are trying to give the impression they have. This previous experience has also given me the ability to utilise a variety of teaching methods depending on what the student best responds to.

Currently I am available most evenings, weekends and from time to time weekdays. I am happy to fit in a lesson whenever I can. My lessons would be very interactive, as I encourage a student to explain things to me in order to ensure they fully understand something. A general lesson plan for me may entail spending a few minutes with the student explaining to me when they currently know, or don't know, about a topic. Then I would go on to positively reinforce what they have got correct to fuel them with positivity and motivation. Then we would get stuck in with tackling the first section of the topic. I would slowly and fully explain a topic, asking regular questions to make sure they understood the subject. Then I might finish with a few challenges, and get them to explain everything they have learnt from the lesson.

Experience

I have experience tutoring a 9 year old student in England. His first language was not English and so my job was to ensure he understood all the work he was covering in school, and to help him with any particular difficulties he encountered in any of his subjects.
I also tutored my little sister of the same age with her studies. My focus with her was to help her pass the tests to get into the secondary school she was aiming for.
I have extensive experience coaching tennis to groups of small children and teenagers.

Education

I have a Masters of Biological Sciences (Zoology) degree from the University of Sheffield England.
I have A-levels (the high-school qualifications taken at 18 in England) in Biology, Physics, English Literature and German
