Top quality tuition from a top quality student. I am currently studying in my final year of A-Levels in Biology, English Literature and German. I am currently working at A/B grades and got grades C-A in GCSEs in 2018. I offer tuition over skype at an hour at time. My GCSE level lessons are priced at £20/hour and my KS3 sessions are £16/ hour. I have a range of resources to use during lessons including activities and textbooks. I also use small assessments at the end of each topic in order to assess both the student's progress and my own teaching ability in order to evaluate where we go next. All I need to know is the subject and level you are interested in and the topic areas the student would like to focus on!

How would you describe your teaching style?

I like to teach in a way that is interactive with the student and in a way that allows them to develop problem solving skills, as this is usually a barrier to getting the top grades after the student understands the content. The new spec GCSE exams are all about problem solving essentially, which is why I like to let the student muddle their way out of a problem with my help rather than just give them the answer. Therefore, my tutoring does involve assessments using exam questions at the end of each topic. This may be past exam questions or questions formulated by myself.

What qualifications do you have?

I am currently studying A-Levels in the subjects I tutor and working at A/B grade and I received top grades in these subjects in my GCSEs in 2018. I also have a TESOL certificate, which covers how to teach in a classroom and handle different types of learners. I have 11 GCSEs grades 5-7 (C-A) including top grades in English, Maths and Science.
