What I teach & my qualifications
I am a qualified secondary school science teacher, with experience in tutoring and teaching students from KS3 through to KS5. I am based in Freckleton, near Preston.
Private science tutoring services include: KS3 science, combined or separate GCSE sciences (biology, chemistry and physics), A-Level Chemistry, GCSE physical education.
My First Class BSc (Hons) degree in Physiology and Pharmacology and PGCE in Secondary Science Education, coupled with my role as a qualified teacher make me a natural option to be a private tutor. In addition, I am also a qualified personal trainer with a keen interest in anatomy and physiology.
I'm professional, friendly, and patient with my students and I aim to inspire, encourage, and help them achieve. I have experience in working with all ability levels and helping with all needs and requests within science as a subject. I tutor because I believe it is the most rewarding context in which to teach and foster development and progress. All private tuition is tailored and personalised to the individual with a focus on helping them succeed.

HOW IT WORKS
Science tuition takes place in my home in Freckleton, near Preston, and is charged at the following rates:
5 hours: £140 (KS3/GCSE) or £165 (A-Level)
10 hours: £270 (KS3/GCSE) or £315 (A-Level)
An initial 30 minute consultation with student and parents/guardians is free of charge. The aim of this is for me to get to know you and for you to get to know me over a relaxed cup of tea. We'll use this time to discuss the student's subject, current level and aims, and to put together a learning plan.
All lessons are payable in advance and are non-refundable.
