Students Taking Exams

One-on-One Lessons

As a classroom teacher for over 12 years, I have seen the benefit one-to-one assistance can have alongside a pupils normal lessons. I offer tailored assistance in their particular syllabus and supporting them in areas they find most challenging in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Exam and past paper practice

Key to success in exams is past paper practice. We work on analysing what the question is asking, building logical answers using key words and tailoring responses to what the mark scheme will expect. All of my lessons aim to boost student confidence when they sit papers.
