I am a friendly, patient tutor with over 15 years experience. I have experience of teaching all ages, from nursery right up to university level. I am very adaptable and will tailor lessons to suit your child’s needs and abilities. I have experience of working with children with learning disabilities and neurodiversities and my students find my teaching style to be relaxed and professional.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I believe that students learn best when they are relaxed. My lessons are fun and engaging, using games and activities to optimise learning. I usually assess students informally by testing for understanding through questions and learning activities rather than formal testing, however this can be arranged if desired. Where I find gaps in understanding I tailor questions and activities to ensure these gaps are closed. I also set homework to ensure that knowledge is retained over time.

What qualifications do you have?

I have a BSc Honours in behavioural and environmental biology and am about to embark on my second degree in maths and physics.

Tell us about your experience...

I have 16 years experience in teaching students one to one and in small groups. I also have experience of teaching and supporting adult learners in the community and at university level. I am experienced in planning efficient and fun lessons. I have experience of delivering lessons both face to face and online.

What locations do you tutor in?

Perthshire and surrounding area. Also tutor online worldwide.

What is your personal message to students?

When you are struggling with English, maths or science, don’t worry, you can come to me with your questions. I am friendly and understanding and will explain everything to you patiently and we will work together to improve your understanding of the subject.
