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: 20 miles

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.

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.

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.
