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.

• 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.
• I held restorative conversations with students to give them the opportunity to voice their opinion and to resolve conflict. I adapted to navigate various challenges and changing circumstances within the school community.

Mavi
Math and Physics 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!

Raúl Martín

Private chemistry lessons for preparatory classes: PC / PCSI / PSI / BTS / MPSI
Associate professor, I offer individual lessons in chemistry and physics to prepare you for exams. Teaching physics chemistry allowed me to understand the difficulties that students must overcome to learn, especially when it comes to subjects that are still somewhat new. Teaching and providing help in these subjects (chemistry, maths, physics) is my way of being part of society. In these courses, I will provide students with all the tools necessary to learn and master their subjects and teach them how to use them in the job market. Do not hesitate to send me a message for more information. Please tell me the level of the student

Viswambher
Physics / Science / Mathematics tutor - IGCSE / IB MYP and DP
I am an interactive teacher with 5 years of experience. My teaching style is friendly and open, yet clear and direct. I incorporate a variety of materials, interactive simulations, and conceptual learning whenever possible. My abilities in education are exceptionally strong and continually improving with each tutoring session. Due to the previous situation with Covid, online teaching has become second nature to me, and I am delighted to assist you in your online learning journey. Teaching Methodology: To effectively teach a student, it is not sufficient to merely take notes or review the same material repeatedly. Students need time to connect concepts by approaching subjects from various angles. Making learning interesting in a classroom setting requires practice and skill, and I have been honing these abilities over the years, constantly seeking improvement as both a teacher and a learner myself!
