Qualifications on file



I am a fully qualified Biology A-level teacher who also teaches all sciences up to GCSE. I am available to teach online via teams or I am more than happy to commute to you if you are within / around Shropshire, Cheshire, and Staffordshire areas.

I studied at Alsager High School and Sixth Form before continuing to Staffordshire University for my undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences. Upon completing my undergraduate degree, I then applied to the OAKS at Keele University to gain my post graduate certificate in education (PGCE) and my qualified teacher status (QTS). I have 6 years teaching experience in schools. Whilst teaching I have also thoroughly enjoyed tutoring in my spare time.

I have taught students on numerous exam boards including AQA, Edexcel and OCR. There is not another like me… I think they broke the mould with me! I am the type of teacher that has a fun classroom environment where mistakes and questions are encouraged just as often as researched statements. We all learn best when we have wiggle room for error. I provide my students with security and confidence inside, and outside, the classroom.

My lessons are best described as interactive, supportive, and transparent as I actively encourage my students to have a voice in the classroom, ask questions when they come up, and participate in all conversations regardless of their level of confidence.

I am happy to help any student studying for their GCSEs in any of the separate sciences. Having been on AQA specific courses I would be happy to help with their A-level Biology course. I am also available to teach KS1 to KS3 Science as I have a sound understanding for the National Curriculum for Science across all ages.

I am also happy to tutor undergraduate students in a degree involving Biology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Behaviour, Physiology, Human Biology, etc. Although I am relatively new to tutoring, I have had many successes in teaching with most of my students receiving grades 5 – 9 at GCSE.

I look forward to hearing from you soon, and to having the opportunity of helping your son or daughter fulfil their own potential.
