Information about Asma
I am a qualified Teacher with experience of teaching for more than 12 years. I have excellent experience of providing tutoring to students at GCSE and A level.
This year all of my GCSE students moved from grades 4/5 to 7-9. All of them secured places in Camp Hill SixthForm, following my guidance. All my A level students secured pass grades leading to acceptance at university.
I am currently the Head of Biology at a secondary school and I have extensive experience of teaching all three sciences to GCSE and Biology and Chemistry to A level. I love teaching Science and want all my students to enjoy it too. In order to do this I ensure that Science is explained to them in a way that they will clearly understand key concepts and thus be able to apply them. I have excellent knowledge of SEN requirements and can target my teaching and tutoring to any specific needs the student may have.
I have recently worked at the exam board for Oxford and Cambridge (OCR), helping to develop and write exam and assessment material, analyse mark schemes and mark exam papers. This experience has made me appreciate the importance of assessment but alo how to hep students access exams. I currently lead the department on their teaching of the required practicals at GCSE and A levels for all three sciences. I also implement new teaching and learning strategies to improve teaching within the department.
Prior to my current role I was working at an Independent day and boarding school for girls which has given me great insight into all sectors of education. All my students always exceed their targets grades by two grades.

Can teach to both AQA and OCR exams, with access to exam questions developed by the exam board.

Feedback For Asma (12)
Excellent tutor really informative and through knowledge
Although my daughter has had only a few sessions she is already seeing positive results. Although a hard worker this was not reflected before in her results which was impacting on her self esteem but having the weekly one to one sessions has made a huge difference helping her exam and study technique.
Brilliant and helpful
Asma is a fantastic tutor, who gives all her time and patience, allows students to ask as many questions as they want and always encourage her students to get the best of them .
Asma has only recently started tutoring my son in A level Biology but we are already seeing improvement. She is extremely pleasant and patient, which we appreciate.
Initial contact with Asma was easy and friendly and my daughter took to her straight away.
An excellent tutor. Asma is very reliable and goes the extra mile to help my son, setting and marking homework outside the time of the tutoring session. He understands the topics much more clearly and his exam technique has improved with her guidance. His test results have also improved so that he now has the predicted grade he needs for his university application.
Hardworking and kind tutor, would highly recommend
Asma tutored my son earlier this year over several months mainly in Alevel biology but also in chemistry. She was very reliable, well organised and planned the lessons each week. She was very encouraging and was able to help improve his predicted grade from a D to a grade A at Alevel.
Asma has been fantastic in supporting my daughter with her A- Level Chemistry/ Biology. My daughter has said she feels comfortable with her and that Asma has excellent subject knowledge and understanding of the exam process.
Very organized and knowledgeable teacher. Asma is tutoring my daughter in GCSE Biology and she is enjoying the lessons and finding them very helpful.
