Experience: I`m an experienced teacher of A Level Biology and GCSE Sciences currently working as Head of Biology at a secondary school based in the West Midlands. I have been teaching both A Level Biology and GCSE Sciences for 14 years and love my subject! My teaching experience includes 8 years teaching within selective Grammar schools and many of my former students have gone on to study science related degrees at the best Universities including several who went on to study at Oxbridge. I am experienced at teaching students of all abilities and use a variety of teaching styles to meet the needs of my students. Initially, I will work with you to identify areas of weakness and gaps in knowledge and skills, before working to fill these gaps with you. We will do a lot of work on exam technique and constant feedback will be provided to ensure you are clear of your next steps. I am most familiar with teaching the AQA A Level Biology and AQA GCSE and Combined Science specifications, but have previous experience of both GCSE OCR Biology and A Level Edxecel Biology.

Mrs Saffira is an excellent tutor. She knows her subject (Biology) very well and is meticulous in her planning of lessons. She delivers her lessons in very calm and controlled way and was helping my son in some topics over Easter. Hopefully my son will be allowed to pick GCSE Triple Science from Sep 2021and I wouldn`t hesitate in getting regular weekly tuitions from Mrs Saffira from next academic year. She teaches from the heart, dedicated to teaching.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your kind feedback. It has been a pleasure teaching your son!

Saffira is an outstanding tutor who, in my daughter’s words, is one of the best teachers she has ever had! Even the most complex subjects are explained brilliantly and in a clear and easy to comprehend way. Saffira has really helped my daughter, Natasha, to gain a full understanding of topics she had previously found highly challenging and provides excellent resources, as well as extra materials and incredible support. Saffira always goes the extra mile and has a truly wonderful way of teaching Science, making it inspiring, enjoyable and highly accessible. Saffira is also extremely friendly, patient, kind and professional. She has a natural flair to make people feel at ease and Natasha’s confidence and belief in her own ability have grown enormously. Natasha, thanks to Saffira’s expert teaching, guidance and knowledge, is now progressing extremely well and getting excellent results at school. Indeed, there has been a vast improvement for my daughter in all areas of her Science! Natasha really loves her Science lessons with Saffira and looks forward to them immensely. She is thoroughly engaging with the learning process in a way she hadn’t, before meeting Saffira. Natasha now finds Science a joy to learn which is lovely to behold. Her teachers at school are extremely impressed with her huge progress, as are we! We are delighted to have such a marvellous tutor who fully understands Natasha’s needs and engages her in such a wonderful and really inventive way. We ‘struck gold’ when we found Saffira – she is truly exceptional!

Saffira has been wonderful- I`ve come back to studying after some time and she`s been incredibly patient and encouraging. As she`s a teacher she also knows the syllabus really well. I would definitely recommend having some lessons with her if you`re looking for some extra support with Biology.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind words Mabel
