I already have very limited availability remaining for this academic year 2018-2019. I will endeavour to accomodate your requirements.
I am a science graduate from the university of Nottingham and have worked in both 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 and A level years including students 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 and with SEN including ASD and ADHD. I have experience of various exam boards including, AQA (for both GCSE and A Level), OCR 21st century, OCR Gateway, OCR A (A Level) and Edexcel (GCSE and A Level), 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 passed 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 am also a volunteer at the Royal Derby Hospital.
If you require Skype/online tuition, group tuition or have any special educational needs that need accommodating, then please contact for further information.
Similarly if you require intensive courses during the summer to prepare your son/daughter for starting their GCSE`s or A Level, don`t hesitate to contact.
I will always endeavour to accommodate any needs you have as a family.

review(s) for Caroline.
Excellent tutor - very organised, pleasant and friendly. Caroline knows her subjects very well and provides clear, logical tuition that has significantly improved attainment levels.
Caroline is an excellent teacher. My son is preparing for his Alevel Biology exams in 2019. Caroline has very good knowledge of the subject and the exam board. She has many extra revision materials which helps to prepare better. My son is very comfortable with her method of teaching
Parent Feedback. Caroline tutored my daughter in the run up to her taking her A-Level biology and I would definitely recommend her as a tutor. She was always very prompt, was very quick to reply to any correspondence, was flexible in her lesson times and was therefore able to work around my daughters revision schedule and she really wanted my daughter to achieve her potential. She therefore went into her A-level Biology feeling well prepared and with much improved confidence.
Student Feedback. Caroline was very quick to identify the areas that I needed work on and was very effective in teaching me to a very advanced level, with the use of multiple teaching tools. Her use of exam questions meant that I was able to build upon my exam technique while learning new content, this meant that my confidence in A-Level Biology increased exponentially and as such, my revision showed much greater improvement. In learning that the essay question was of huge concern to me she made sure to plan an essay each week and set essay titles to do as extra work. This allowed me to summarise a whole topic quickly but in great depth, in addition to helping me work on longer answer questions. Her extremely friendly attitude meant that I felt comfortable in lessons and was able to ask her anything I wasn`t sure on.
Thank you Caroline
Caroline tutors my daughter in AL Biology in preparation for the ALs in June. She is a committed and conscientious tutor. She is very organised, has a suitable and relevant plan for the student and very thorough and sound in the knowledge of her subject. In addition she gives valuable advice and encouragement to her students. I am ver pleased with her tutoring.
Excellent teacher with high quality of teaching with a plethora of learning material. Highly recommend Miss Caroline.
Caroline works hard to ensure progress - she quickly made a big difference to my daughter`s confidence and enthusiasm for A` Level Biology. She has a clear, friendly style and knows her subject very well.
I would recommend Miss Caroline. Her knowledge of the GCSE Syllabus and exam requirements are up to date. My son has made good progress and has grown in confidence and is now expected to do well. Miss Caroline adapts her teaching methods and presents content in different ways so that my son was able to improve his knowledge and understanding. I`m very pleased with his progress and he enjoys the lessons.
Caroline is an excellent tutor. She is friendly and well organised with a good knowledge of exams and curriculum. She can provide structured lessons or flex to meet the needs of the students. My daughters confidence has grown and her marks improved as a direct result of Carolines teaching. I recommend Caroline and her teaching style to others

My daughter has had two sessions with Caroline. So far, so good. She (my daughter) is very happy with the arrangement and so are we. Caroline is very pleasant, punctual, efficient and professional, which is exactly what you would want from a tutor.
