Key Concepts in Science, GCSE and Exam Technique Tutoring

The best way to build confidence and increase grades is to help students attain marks in assessments. I focus a lot on exam technique, working on practice questions with students to observe trends in the questions asked and mark schemes. Working in this way means students understand how examiners expect them to answer certain questions so that they don’t have to guess in the exam.

I also focus on building logical and problem-solving skills in students, so that students are able to solve any problem that they encounter in science and outside of the science curriculum. I also ensure to work on maths skills, as these make up a large part of physics exams but are also needed in biology and chemistry.

Bring your own notebook and calculator. Online sessions will require the use of a laptop/tablet device.

• In this role, I prepared AS and A-Level students for AQA Biology examinations. I planned visits to the Wetlands Centre and Imperial College Labs to give students the opportunity to apply their knowledge. I created risk assessments for school educational trips and science practical’s students demonstrated.
• Prepared a cohort of 60 students for GCSE exams in Double Science, helped students achieve high GCSE results, with more than 75 % of the class achieving grade 8 or above.
• Evaluated curriculum plans, making sure schemes of work aligned with the curriculum aims.
• I ensured my lessons provided a supportive and inclusive environment to help facilitate optimal learning and growth. I empathically communicated sensitive information to families, and relevant professionals. I guided each young person to engage in effective coping and relaxation techniques to support them to self sooth and regulate. I attended weekly staff-support briefings to keep updated with various student educational plans and needs.
• Designed and developed online videos to provide students with the opportunity to learn new knowledge and master new skills.
• Developed quality learning assessment data on excel spreadsheets to help analyse knowledge gaps in individuals learning.
• Used MS teams and forms to create quizzes, surveys and evaluations so that I could provide individual feedback to learners.
• Worked in a fast paced, changing environment and managed various tasks within the allocated time frame.
• Mentored ECT teachers and provided them with constructive feedback to help them effectively demonstrate the required teacher standards.
• Managed the design of the year 9 scheme of work and sequence of the curriculum. I collaborated with other science practitioners to create a framework for good practice in teaching and learning.
• Reported safeguarding concerns on CPOMS and followed up with a written report, cooperating with the Deputy Safeguarding lead within the school.
• Marked formal and informal assessments in line with the school’s marking policy. I analysed student data to identify key gaps in student knowledge, using this information to inform future lesson planning and delivery.

Raef
Tuition Math - Physics - Chemistry - Biology
Graduated and experienced for more than 18 years, I give private lessons in Mathematics - Analysis - Matrices - Statistics - Algebra - Geometry - Physics - Chemistry - Biology, Geology to students of French program of Terminales, patent and secondary or international programs (IB ) or Canadian in English (Grade 8, 9, 10, 11, 12) or competitions and medical university preparatory classes or 1st and 2nd university years for the academic year 2022/2023 either at home or by internet online by virtual class method . The online method is easily done by a link that serves as a writing board, typing and projection more than Skype or Zoom talking about which we communicate. This method is very modernized and reliable (it's like we are in the same place) for more than 6 years I have been working by this method. The results of my students and in particular the students of Terminale are superb with successes in mention very good and good and sometimes excellent. Homework help for CNED students. For more information, do not hesitate to contact me.

Mavi
Math, Physics and Science tutoring for children and teenagers: IB MYP, IGCSE, and GCSE.
I am Mavi, a physics engineer working at an aerospace company. I have been teaching private lessons at the primary, secondary, high school, and university preparatory levels for 9 years. I teach mathematics, physics, chemistry, and science. I have a good command of the curricula of IB, IGCSE, American, Hong Kong, and international schools. Additionally, I hold the position of president at the Astronomy Society, where I foster my students' interest in astronomy and science beyond the lessons. I prepare the learning environment by incorporating experiments and exploration, moving away from rote education. I often bring experimental materials to class, aiming to make learning memorable through hands-on experiments. As an educational mentor, I approach my students as if they were my siblings, valuing creativity. I have a deep passion for mathematics, physics, and science. I am dedicated to helping students understand and learn because life encompasses both SCIENCE and ART. The more people I can inspire to know, understand, and love mathematics, physics, and chemistry, the more proud I am. Are you curious about how nature works? Let's explore together!

Ayumie
Secondary-School Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics
Need any help in secondary school level Biology, Chemistry or Math? Primarily for students currently taking A-levels, MYP (Middle Years Program) or IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Program). Depending on what you need, I am able to help you out in these subjects. If you need help with coursework, I can help with designing investigations, appropriate lab technique and giving feedback on writing. If it is the syllabus itself, we will work through your textbook together, identifying stumbling blocks and working through practice questions. If you want longterm tutoring, we can impement spaced repetition which can really help with subject retention. Ultimately, it is up to you and your needs, and we will be able to tailor a study scheme that will suit you. I pride myself on being patient and friendly with all of my students. I prioritise sparking a friendship and passion in the subjects, which in my opinion will always make studying a subject much more appealing and easy. I am a 2024 IBDP graduate, having achieved a 6 in Biology, Chemistry and Math, with experience tutoring coursework (written work) and examinations. I also have achieved a 7 in the individual components of coursework, including an award for the best biology extended essay in my year.

Physics & Maths Lessons! - Experience with Belgian and EU Baccalaureate, IB, University Applications & Learning Disabilities
Hi, my name is Jeremy and I have a Masters in Physics with honours from the University of Leicester (featured as a top 5 Physics university in the UK by The Guardian) and a - french - European School diploma in which I achieved 90% in Physics and 85% in Maths. Helping others understand difficult topics and skills is something that I am very passionate about as an empathetic person. I have experience teaching Physics and Maths to kids from unprivileged backgrounds at the homework school in Saint-Gilles (CASG du Service Social Juif asbl) as well as through 3 years of private teaching. In my classes, I aim to: - help students achieve better grades in exams/tests in all branches of Physics & Maths - clearly explain and break down topics - give context and or example applications of topics (to improve understanding and memorisation) - help with ADHD & other learning disabilities - give practical advice for university applications (eg. UCAS in the UK) and discuss the exciting Physics research/work and projects you can work on later in life Physics has a plethora of useful and fascinating applications, from the detection of Gravitational Waves and Gamma-Ray Bursts to the development of novel Medical Imaging techniques and Nano-technology (eg: smartphones). It is a subject that I am very passionate about and I hope to make use of my years of experience and extensive knowledge to help you understand and love the subject! My lessons will always be tailored to the individual needs of the student, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions!
