Information about Rebecca
I`m a well-qualified teacher and lecturer with a quarter of a century of experience. I`m currently taking a break from the classroom and my job as a head of department in order to study for a PhD at Warwick Medical School. I`ve successfully tutored many students over the years. Some have come seeking high grades to get into medicine, for example, and I`ve been able to give them the extension work required. Others have wanted a bit more help with the basics. I try to help my students understand the principle ideas and make the connections. Helping all students to achieve their goals is very rewarding. I teach all of the Biology A level, and all boards, but I specialise in Data handling, Practicals and second year holistic topics such as Homeostasis and Ecology. Exams these days are more about application than about knowledge. I use my experience as an examiner to help students to understand what is required of them.
Availability: I am available 7am to 9pm everyday by prior arrangement.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I`ve been teaching for 25 years, mostly A level Biology in FE colleges and Sixth Forms, but also BTEC Applied Science. I have a PGCE with QTS. I have been a Programme Manager/Head of Department, and I have worked for the exam board AQA. I have tutored many students over the years, with great results, and in particular, several candidates for Medical School. I`ve also been a co-tutor for Initial Teacher Training and Newly Qualified Teachers.

Feedback For Rebecca (29)
Rebecca was an amazing tutor for A level AQA biology and integral to me achieving an A grade for my predicted grades!! She is always on time and efficient! She has a vast amount of resources and knowledge of what examiners are looking for and the mark scheme which is extremely important. Our lessons were normally based around working through exam questions and she would explain topics on the whiteboard really well if need be. She uploads all the resources and notes from the lessons onto a google classroom which is extremely useful. The lessons were always paced well, not too fast and not too slow and we would get a lot covered in just an hour. The microphone quality was also fantastic and really clear which is great for online lessons. All in all I would highly recommend Rebecca has a biology tutor! Friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable. Everything you would want in a tutor!!!
Rebecca is very clear in her explanations of topics and frequently asks whether I understand it or need further help. She listens to what I don`t understand and adapts her explanations to fit my learning style and also engages me by asking questions, which I find is helpful in finding out what I know and what I don`t. I love biology and she keeps me interested in it. I really recommend her !
My daughter has found Rebecca a real asset with her A level Biology. Very friendly, easy to chat problems through with , gives advice and lots of past papers of OCR . Would recommend Rebecca to help with A level teaching .

Excellent tutor! She has really helped develop my understanding of A level biology and how to tackle the tricky mark schemes.
Rebecca is a very good tutor. She is well organised, clearly very experienced and has a huge bank of exam questions. She sends planning notes and work for the next tutorial well in advance. She has helped me to grow in confidence and to fill in knowledge gaps.

Great tutor and really worked well with our son.
she is very good at teaching
Rebecca has given me a lot of support with my a level, I have more confidence when attempting questions. Shes always available if I have any questions
My daughter thinks Rebecca is an excellent tutor. She was seeking some assistance with exam technique in advance of sitting her recent IAS biology paper. Rebecca always came to the lessons well prepared, the exam tips she imparted were super helpful, and she was willing to go the extra mile by offering to answer any questions that arose after the lesson. Rebecca quickly established an easy rapport with my daughter, which made for a comfortable lesson environment. She intends to come back to Rebecca for her future exam preparation. Many thanks!
Very helpful with the revision. Explains things clearly and is very patient.
Very good teacher
Rebecca has been very supportive of our son. He is actually enjoying his lessons and is certainly learning from them and seems to have turned a corner in terms of moving towards Alevels. Rebecca is always punctual, organised and has good ideas of how to support him. My son says he would recommend her to his friends! Cant get much better than that for a 17 year old!
Very good teacher
Great tutor, knows her subject and has great resources to support.
Rebecca is an excellent Biology tutor. My daughter who is doing A level Biology finds that Rebecca`s method of teaching is very clear and understandable. She makes sure that the pupil has a proper understanding of the topic before she moves on to the next topic. Rebecca goes that extra mile to find the relevant resources and uploads them on Google Classroom for further studies. My daughter really enjoys working with her and I am happy to recommend Rebecca to anyone who wants to study Biology.
Very flexible and accommodating. Great at explaining difficult topics. Highly recommend.
My daughter found the classes very helpful and tailored towards her exams. She found Rebecca to be that ideal teacher that not only listened to her concerns but identified her weakness and helped her overcome them, this has enabled my daughter build the confidence she needs to face her A Levels.
Content is always explained simply and we go through exam questions
My son says she is one of the best teachers he has ever had! He received an offer from one of the best schools in the UK with her help! Thank you!
Rebecca is friendly, reliable and engaging. She expertly guided my daughter through A-level Biology and I would highly recommend her as a tutor.
Rebecca was fantastic all the way. Just sorry that the arrangement had to come to an end so abruptly with Covid-19 and the A level situation.
Excellent teacher with extensive knowledge in A-level science subject. Highly recommended!
Always very accommodating, and tailors lessons to specific areas requested. Always helpful and patient and explains everything until I understand. Rebecca also sends regular e mails with helpful material and reading matter. I can highly recommend her for anyone needing a helping hand in A level Biology.
I use Rebecca for A-Level Biology tutoring and would highly recommend her. She is very reliable and organised. The tutoring is well planned and she is very familiar with the exam marking structure and terminology required for exam techniques.
Rebecca has been excellent and helped my son gain confidence and understanding of his A level biology and given him the tools to cope
