Information about Caroline

I am a neuroscience graduate and qualified teacher from the university of Nottingham and a current medical student.
I have worked in schools, universities, the NHS and pharmaceutical industry. I have been tutoring science since September 2014 and tutor in biology, chemistry and physics up to GCSE level. I also have students in their AS level year, who have remained with me after working with them at GCSE level.

I have worked with students from both the private at state sector across Derbyshire and also have experience of working with students who are disengaged from education. I have experience of various exam boards including, AQA (including the old and the newly introduced syllabus), OCR 21st century and Edexcel, including their International IGCSE course.

I am an adaptable tutor who is creative, to ensure all students make progress and reach their full potential.

I loved tutoring and education that much that it lead me to do supply/cover work across Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire. This in turn enabled me to secure a place on The University of Nottingham`s Secondary Science PGCE course where I gained Qualified Teacher Status (rated `OUTSTANDING` on my final teaching profile)and pass the academic component with Distinction.

I volunteer at a local charity and as a befriender to those at risk of social isolation. I therefore have a fully enhanced DBS check which I can provide you with so you can check my details online. I have also spent 12 months volunteering in my local A&E department.

I am currently studying graduate entry medicine at the Derby campus of the University of Nottingham, so also have experience with medical applications and interviews. As part of my previous role lecturing I also have extensive experience of personal statements. I have also successfully coached students through interviews for education/teaching courses.

I am happy to provide a free 30 minute consultation with you, which will provide you with an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and will allow me to get to know you as a family. If yourself and your son/daughter is happy, we can then continue with a tuition session directly after.

If you require online tuition, group tuition or have any special educational needs that need accommodating, then please contact for further information.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience of teaching science at KS3 (11-14), KS4 (14-16) and at KS5 (post 16). I have taught both in secondary mainstream and also at a Post 16 college as well as having lectures on Access and Foundation courses at university. I have also spent time in an SEN provision setting to improve my awarness of supporting all learners.

I have covered the following syllabuses:

OCR 21st Century
Edexcel IGCSE

OCR (A and B for chemistry)

Tutoring Approach:

I am a lighthearted and dynamic tutor who gives a lot of time to pupil/student voice. I think it is vital that students can dictate the sessions (if they want to/are able to) so that they can gain maximum benefit to them.

I establish a good rapport with all my tutees and this has been highlighted as a real positive with all the families I have worked with. My tutoring style is relaxed which helps put a student at ease; after all they are having extra lessons outside of school! They can however be very formal if this is what the family would prefer. I always make time to discuss the session at the end with parents/family/guardian.

I have worked with students from both the private and state sector and across the ability range. I adapt the sessions to suit the student and to engage them and maintain their curiosity.

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Experience: I have a breadth of experience including science, maths, English and geography. I have also helped prepare students for interviews as well as advising them on their EPQ’s. I am adaptable and I am therefore happy to discuss any tuition requirements you have that you feel may fit with me experience.

DBS Check: Yes

Caroline is tutoring my daughter in GCSE Chemistry and Physics. She is a great tutor - very organised, excellent communicator and has explained the complex in a way my daughter understands. My daughter is enjoying the sessions with Caroline, is keen to get her homework done well for her and is growing in confidence thanks to Caroline`s support. I would thoroughly recommend Caroline.

Caroline is a real gem. She is professional and hard working. She has been able to identify where she was best able to support our daughter in her final A level year. I would 100% recommend her.
