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.
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
OCR (A and B for chemistry)
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 EPQs. I am adaptable and I am therefore happy to discuss any tuition requirements you have that you feel may fit with me experience.

Feedback For Caroline (19)
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 has been most helpful, she has already given our daughter more confidence and she is so knowledgeable. Caroline is very accommodating and will cater to her students specific needs, Chloe loves her teaching style too, it is relaxed but very informative. I strongly recommend Caroline, thank you
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.
Caroline is an excellent teacher for my daughter.I am glad she is helping my daughter to understand the Physics and Chemistry which she was struggling with.I highly recommend Caroline.
Caroline is a fabulous tutor - has an extensive knowledge!
We feel very lucky to have Caroline tutoring our daughter. She immediately felt comfortable with Caroline and since receiving tutoring has gone up a predicted grade in her GCSEs. We would have no hesitation in recommending 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
